Cooling Tower Treatment

Cooling towers are complex systems that need careful attention to be maintained properly for optimum performance and lifespan. As regulations and requirements continue to change and severely limit how manufacturers construct equipment, it becomes more important than ever before to maximize the life span of equipment that is both expensive and difficult to maintain.

Without proper cleaning and treatment of your cooling towers, cooling system operability can be reduced.  Scaling can occur robbing the cooling tower of proper efficiency and increasing overall energy costs.  Scaling can also lead to a breeding ground for Legionella bacteria, which can lead to Legionnaires’ disease. This is the number one reason for proper cooling tower maintenance, to keep your cooling tower cleaned and functioning at the highest level.  Cooling tower efficiency is crucial for any treatment program. 

It has also become essential for engineers to know the latest national, state and local cooling tower laws to keep your facility compliant.  IWC Innovations engineers know no two cooling tower systems are identical. Our cooling tower water treatment procedures are specifically designed to improve your system's efficiency, condition, and lifespan.

In August 2015, New York City and New York State created new requirements for owners of buildings with cooling towers. The City’s requirements are found in Local Law 77 of 2015. Local Law 77 requires registration, inspection, cleaning, disinfection and testing of all New York City cooling towers. Local Law 77 also requires building owners to annually certify that they are in compliance with the law. The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) also created new rules to implement Local Law 77. The new rules are Chapter 8 of Title 24 of the Rules of the City of New York. The rules require building owners to create routine and long-term maintenance procedures for their cooling towers and for owners to register their towers with the City. The State’s requirements were initially established as emergency regulations. The regulations are Title 10 of the New York Codes of Rules and Regulations (10 NYCRR), Part 4, “Protection against Legionella.” The State anticipates that its final regulations will be adopted in May 2016. The State’s regulations apply statewide, including in New York City.
