Clogging, fouling and contamination of cooling towers and air coolers causes many challenges for heat exchange surfaces and cooling performance. Foreign materials both organic and inorganic are naturally drawn inside air inlets either blocking fin coils or providing a food source for bacteria. Restricting airflow reduces cooling efficiency, whilst high levels of bacteria in a wet system can lead to concerns over legionella. Cleaning your internal cooling equipment should be part of maintenance routines, but airborne debris can often be difficult, time consuming and expensive to remove.
