Cooling towers by design can suffer from fouling.
There is a potential of atmospheric and process contamination, bacterial issues along with scale and corrosion fouling.
HSG274 part 1 now offers a very clear guide on system inspections and cleaning and it is important to recognise that certain types of fouling may be an indication of a failing of the chemical treatment regime.
Additionally, the methods employed to clean cooling towers must be chosen with care. High pressure jetting for example will generate a high volume of aerosol and may provide a method of distribution for any bacteria within the system.
Waterman Compliance Services can carry out this important part of the control regime either as an individual task or as part of an overall control scheme. Either way we can give you the confidence that you’re cleaning and inspections are being completed in an effective and safe manner and we will provide you with the results required to demonstrate compliance.
