Which Towers are at Risk?
Crossflow cooling towers built in the mid-to-late 70s, or before, are beginning to experience catastrophic structural failures at an alarming rate. Several major utility installations have already experienced problems.
TSIs Reduce Risk
Early identification of risk is the key to preventing catastrophic structural failure. GEA offers Tower Structural Inspections (TSIs) to evaluate risk factors and give recommendations.
TSIs Save Money Many Ways
A TSI is a crucial tool in optimizing the life of your tower. Early detection of potential weaknesses can save overall costs and downtime. If structural weaknesses are detected in time, most towers can be repaired on line (one cell out of service). While repairs can be extensive, the cost is significantly lower than replacement of the entire tower. Repairs often extend the useful life of the towers by 10 or more years.
