Cooling Tower Cleaning In Gravesend

A well run cooling tower/evaporative condenser is the most efficient means of removing heat from a system as they are smaller (footprint) and consume less energy per joule to lower coolant temperatures than other cooling systems.

Cooling Tower Cleaning In Gravesend is essential as potential dangers of bacterial contamination as warm water is passed over baffles in the presence of a flow of air. These dangers and the legal requirements of tower owners/operators are set out in the HSE Approved Code of Practice and Guidance ACoP L8.

Correct dosing of inhibitors and biocides (Control and Dosing), together with monitoring, sampling and Cooling Tower Cleaning In Gravesend is key to overcoming these problems leading to long-term trouble free running. We specialise in providing and commissioning automated water chemistry regulation systems.

By mitigating corrosion, through the use of inhibitors, our Cooling Tower Cleaning service prolongs the life of the equipment and deny nutrients to bacteria. The inhibitors also help to prevent scale build which prevents clogging of the system and removes another source of nutrient. Less scale helps maintain a clean system in which the biocides can work more effectively.

A Cooling Tower Cleaning programme In Gravesend, incorporating control and treatment but vigorously backed up with monitoring, sampling and cleaning needs to be tailored to each site. Therefore we offer:

  • Risk Assessment
  • Scale & Corrosion – Treatment and Control
  • Chemical Supply
  • Controller Supply and Commissioning
  • Tower Installation and Refurbishment
  • Physical and chemical monitoring
  • Legionella and water chemistry sampling
  • Cleaning and disinfection
  • Support for HSE/EHO inspections

Peter Richards – Technical Director



It is a requirement of the ACoP L8 that regular TVC and Legionella sampling is undertaken at a UKAS accredited laboratory.
