Site Surveys and Tower Inspections

Initial Existing Tower Survey

An initial survey of your existing tower will allow us to understand your process and establish the scope of supply required from us.

Such a survey allows Watermiser to discuss options and possible process changes to ensure that the best solution is sought, be that a refurbishment of the existing tower, a replacement tower or a fuller intrusive inspection to better understand any areas of concern.

Health and Safety Standards

Inspections which are carried out by Watermiser are structured as per HSG274 Part 1, the HSE Guidance which gives practical advice and clarity on legal responsibilities when operating an evaporative cooling system.

The Guidance states that, when operating an evaporative cooling system, there is a requirement to appoint a ‘Responsible Person’ who is responsible for understanding the system, risk assessing and maintaining it. Documented records must be kept to illustrate that this is being conducted.

The Watermiser inspection reports illustrate that suitable and sufficient checks are being carried out and that the system is being pro-actively managed. Short, medium and long-term recommendations are put forward to allow the client to budget ahead, and 2- or 3-year inspection contracts can be put in place to ensure continuity and consistency of report.

How often should a cooling system be inspected?

HSE’s guidance states that regular inspection to determine the need for cleaning is required, and that frequency of inspections will vary depending on fouling potential and as an assessment on the treatment history. The following is given as a guide for consideration:

  • at least once every 3 months for a cooling system in a dirty environment (i.e. a tower which is prone to process or environmental contamination)
  • at least twice a year for an air conditioning comfort cooling system
  • at least every 12 months for a ‘clean’ industrial application and any others

Watermiser can provide such inspections and make recommendations for more or less frequent inspection visits in tandem with any risk assessment findings.
