Cooling Tower Basin Leaks and Corrosion Increase Operating Cost and Risk of Breakdown
Constant exposure to water and chemicals causes cooling tower damages. Over time, water and chemical exposure causes corrosion and structural weakness in metal/concrete basins, pans, and seams. Eventually, leaks will develop, which in turn causes:
Increased water consumption
Higher chemical treatment costs
Possible property damage around and below the tower
Corrosion will only get worse until it is fixed. This hurts energy efficiency and raises the risk of a breakdown that will leave your facility without process or comfort cooling. The resulting consequences include:
Longer repair times
Extreme metal loss
Possible replacement of cooling tower
Water circulation pipes suffering from external or internal corrosion may also be at risk for leaks and failure
Check for these problems during fall maintenance and be proactive about fixing them. Sometimes corrosion can be covered by silt and other debris in the tower basin. In the case of circulation piping, corrosion can be hidden within the pipe itself or under thermal insulation. Signs of corrosion are often obvious if you look for them.
Specialized Epoxy Composite and Protective Coatings Rebuild Metal Loss and Extend Service Life
The Banks Industrial team replaces and reinforces areas of extreme metal loss with specialized plate bonding and carbon fiber repair methods. Our methods restore lost wall thickness and structural integrity to corroded cooling tower basins and water circulation pipes.
We blast down corroded metal, rebuild it where needed, and then apply protective coatings to withstand water exposure and chemical attack. Our premium Belzona materials are incredibly durable, non-toxic, VOC free, and provide years-long protection. Belzona compounds do not require hot work and have a rapid cure time for fast return to service.
Have you already tried a "low-cost" coating only to see it fail after a few years? Our Belzona materials are properly applied and proven to withstand corrosive environments and chemical attack for long-term protection.
Fan Shaft Repair
Banks Industrial Group rebuilds scored fan shafts using fast-curing metal rebuild compounds. Repairs can usually be completed in-situ which allows for faster return to service. On site repairs can help you avoid long waits for replacement parts.
Fan Blade Restoration
Banks Industrial Group also restores eroded cooling tower fan blades. Cooling tower leading edges break down over time with wear and use, leading to a loss in operating efficiency and an increase in component-damaging vibrations.
BIG provides single-source service for the repair and protection of cooling tower basins. We can also train and equip your staff to perform repairs.
