The remedial chemical treatment of redwood and Douglas fir cooling tower framework members.
• WHY? Spray application of preservatives has proven to be a highly effective treatment throughout our years of experience with cooling towers. Though it's mainly a preventative to future infections, it can also retard or control the spread of existing decay. It is imperative that the spray chemical be thoroughly applied in order to kill existing microorganisms and to form a resistant barrier on wood surfaces.
• WHAT? The ChemGuard preservative is uniquely effective in preventing microbiological deterioration of cooling tower wood. It's a broad spectrum fungicide, as well as a highly effective algaecide and bactericide; it has substantial penetration and is not readily leached from the wood by surface water. ChemGuard’s self-contained mobile unit was specifically designed for use in spray applications for cooling tower treatment programs. The sophisticated equipment delivers the treatment chemical at a spray rate of 500 psi.
Let's give you a bit more insight into how it functions and how it'll be applied to your cooling tower:
• HOW? Our technician gives careful attention to spraying all critical areas of wood:
- treating the plenum chamber framework
- drift eliminators (if they are wood)
- inside casing (if it is wood)
- partition walls (if they are wood)
- underside of the fan deck
- A water soluble, rapidly fading red dye is added to the chemical so that the technician has a visual indicator of optimum coverage. You can rest assured that you will have a skilled technician that will properly mix and thoroughly apply ChemGuard inside your cooling tower cells.
• WHEN? Spray treatment is generally performed annually to maximize protection against microbiological attack. It has been proven, time and time again, to be the most economical preventative option.
Summary: - The ChemGuard Spray Treatment program, over time, will minimize costly structural repairs. Leave it to STAR COOLING TOWERS to implement a highly effective plan to preserve the future of your cooling tower.
