Extend your Cooling Tower Operating Life with Preventive and Predictive Maintenance

Webinar On-Demand
Provided by Process Cooling
Presented by David Ferree

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain how a cooling tower performance test is done, what is needed, and how it is evaluated.
  2. Discuss the causes, detection methods and remedies for cooling tower mechanical failures due to vibration problems.
  3. Identify common fan issues relating to the fan blades and hardware, including impending failures, and understand optimal setups for good fan performance.
  4. Recognize water distribution problems from the ground and how to fix them.
  5. Describe common structural problems and where they are most often found in cooling towers.

During this webinar, we will look at the most common components, problems, failures and misconceptions related to cooling tower maintenance and performance. Key takeaways include:

  • How a performance test is done, what is needed, and how it is evaluated.
  • Mechanical failures due to vibration problems: causes, detection methods and remedies.
  • Common fan issues relating to the fan blades and hardware, including impending failures, and optimal setups for performance.
  • Recognizing water distribution problems from the ground and how to fix them.
  • Understanding common structural problems and where they are most often found.

Learn how to spot fan component imbalances that can lead to failure, and how effective cooling tower inspections and maintenance can extend the operating life of your tower.
