AC Cooling Tower & Chiller Pipe Lining
COOLING TOWER PIPES CORRODE & LEAK
Often, the pipes conveying water between the cooling tower and the chiller corrode due to incorrect or inadequate water treatment. Embedded in concrete walls or found underneath floors, these pipes are very inaccessible for pipe replacement. However, they can be restored with a new physical inner pipe, designed for load-bearing situations and with an expected lifespan of 100 years. This is known as Cured-In Place-Pipe lining (CIPP).
CHILLER PIPES CORRODE & LEAK TOO
The narrow diameter supply and return lines corrode due to improper water treatment, causing the chilled water to leak. However, these pipes can be restored by a process known as Epoxy Pipe Lining, which cleans and coats the inner surface of the pipes with a tough food-grade epoxy between 1mm-6mm in thickness.
