Cooling tower structures are exposed to harsh conditions throughout their service life due to moisture and environmental extremes such as freezing temperatures, high wind and deterioration caused by acids settling.
A key factor that affects the durability of concrete cooling tower structures is environmental exposure. Without proactively addressing the issue of chemical exposure, premature deterioration can occur. In order to minimize the overall costs of keeping an asset operational for the expected life of the facility, therefore, it becomes imperative to base the design on using preventive maintenance components such as acid/chemical dilution troughs.
