When you buy something, you want it to last, right? Well, that is the problem with your standard metal cooling towers.
This is due, at least in part, to the fact that metal-clad towers have casings with thin sheets of galvanized steel that have to be welded together. These welded seams will deteriorate, often within just a few years.
Once that happens, they’ll need to be re-welded or patched on a regular basis for the rest of their operational life.
While water alone is enough to eat through the galvanized metal, water treatment chemicals will also shorten their lifespan.
That’s really just the tip of the iceberg; environmental conditions such as sunlight, pollution, salt air, and harsh process chemicals also contribute to galvanized steel’s early demise.
Even low-grade stainless shell options, like series 300 stainless steel that’s designed to resist corrosion, wear out from water treatment chemicals and environmental factors.
