Benefits of a Clean Cooling Tower:

  • A cooling tower that runs more energy efficient including water retention
  • Improved thermal transfer rates due to unfouled and cleaned heat transfer media: inlet louvers, drift eliminators, and fill media
  • Reduced unnecessary stress on internal parts resulting in less mechanical failures and unnecessary shut downs
  • Extended life of the cooling tower's external structure
  • Non-toxic, eco-friendly, disinfectant application that kills Legionella and further stunts bio-growth
  • A safer cooling tower for all personnel within a 2 mile radius as our EPA approved, sanitizing disinfectant application kills bacteria and viruses
  • No draining of the cold water basin meaning no production downtime
  • Long term cost savings



Cooling Tower Cleaning Process - Step By Step

Cyrco, inc.'s complete, multi-process, cooling tower cleaning service typically consists of:

Step 1: Exterior Debris Removal: Pressure washing the interior and exterior of the cooling tower, removing dirt, debris, scale, mold, algae, and other contaminants.

Step 2: Heat Transfer Media Cleaning: Removing debris and lightly pressure washing and/or vacuuming inlet louvers, drift eliminators, and fill media.

Step 3: Hot Water Basin Cleaning: Cleaning the hot water distribution basin(s) by removing any heavy debris, then dry vacuuming thoroughly clean. Replacing any broken or missing nozzles.

Step 4: Cold Water Basin Cleaning Cleaning the cold water collection basin(s) using our powerful, industrial-grade, Goodway CTV-1501 Vacuum system that removes heavy debris including sludge, mud, or any industrial waste material. In addition to vacuum removal of debris, using Goodway's CTV Filtration System, the basin's water is micron-filtered clean down to 5 microns, returning crystal clear water with greatly reduced potentially harmful bacterias including Legionella. The filtered water is directly returned to the tower, resulting in no water loss, nor a required shut down for cleaning.

Step 5: Disinfectant Application: The final step of our cooling tower cleaning process is applying an EPA approved, eco-friendly, non-toxic, sanitizing disinfectant which further stunts bio-growth, including mold and algae. The disinfectant is effective on hard surfaces and is safe to use on wood, fiberglass, and metal. Regular annual cleanings and use of this disinfectant, especially on wooden cooling towers, greatly prolongs the tower's life-span.

As an additional benefit, this disinfectant kills bacteria and viruses, including Legionella and COVID-19. By keeping your system clean it will reduce the nutrients available for Legionella growth. Drift (small water droplets) from a contaminated cooling tower can carry Legionella and other bacteria as far as 2 miles from your facility and can then enter and infect the lungs of unsuspecting people. Deadly Legionnaires' Disease outbreaks are statistically derived from cooling towers, making our sanitizing cleaning service a must for any cooling tower owner concerned about the health of their employees and the nearby community.

Did you know?

New York City takes Legionnaires’ Disease very seriously as every cooling tower within the city must be registered and annually tested for Legionella. Owners must also submit and employ a regular maintenance program and plan. If NYC takes these measures to prevent dangerous Legionella outbreaks that can cause major health ailments and/or even mass deaths, we believe it's important for you to do so as well. Is your cooling tower potentially dangerous to your employees and others in your nearby 2 mile community?


Preventative Maintenance Plans

During Cyrco's cleaning process, at no additional charge, we often include exercising and lubing the distribution valve(s) along with implementing other small preventative maintenance procedures. We consider ourselves to be a professional, full-service cooling tower solutions provider, which while on-site, allows us a chance to evaluate your cooling tower. With no pressure or pushy sales calls, we then can offer detailed recommendations for repairs, replacement of parts, or a suggestive preventative maintenance plan and the benefits it would offer. Often combining cooling tower cleaning services and a preventative maintenance goes hand in hand for maximizing your cooling tower's thermal performance, energy efficiency, and the overall longevity of structural and mechanical parts.
