Water Quality Testing

Water quality is one of the most important aspects to extracting heat from the air you are cooling in a cooling tower.  Good quality water is essential to the lifespan and efficiency of your system and the health of your employees and customers.

Let’s discuss the water quality of your cooling tower or existing system today!

Sample Projects

Over a weekend replaced cooling tower at national retailer location. Work included removing the existing 450 ton cooling tower, re-piping the system, installing the new cooling tower and had the system on-line by Monday before staff arrived.

Designed and installed a 1200 ton, stainless steel, Evapco cooling tower. The regional newspaper’s production facility had corrosion problems with the previous unit due to the proximity to the oceanfront so a stainless steel tower was selected. The work included structural steel fabrication, design and installation of all new electrical and control systems. Time frame constraints limited demolition and new work schedule to a 10 day shut down – schedule met with 3 days to spare!

Replaced a 40+ year old wood cooling tower at a hotel with a new 250-ton Marley cooling tower. Work included removal and proper disposal of asbestos fill  from the cooling tower, fabrication of a new tower support, all new schedule 40 PVC supply and return water piping to existing line outside the building, new make-up water and drain line piping and new electrical branch circuit to outside the building.

Rebuilt a 2000-ton tower providing water to the production chillers in a brewery. Completely refurbished 450 and 650 ton towers for main office of regional newspaper. Performing this work will add 5 to 10 years to the life of the towers. Rebuilt a 250-ton unit for a multi-use synagogue / school / recreation center.
