Detailed inspections 

Evaporative cooling towers should be inspected by competent cooling tower engineers. Failed or deteriorating components compromise performance and can lead to an unexpected or catastrophic failure.

Costain offers thorough cooling tower inspections and tests that are carried out by experienced engineers who can determine compliance, the integrity of structural and internal components and overall cooling tower performance. Our inspections cover all types of cooling towers and include all individual associated passive and mechanical parts. Inspections are followed by full written reports including photographic evidence where permitted, highlighting any areas of concern or areas requiring further investigation. 

Cooling tower internal and external cleans 

The team has extensive cooling tower knowledge and expertise in all cooling tower designs, including integral parts and associated plant. A thorough clean is performed by our experienced cooling tower engineers to ensure optimal operation and performance of your cooling tower asset and prevent premature failure of components.

Costain is accredited by the Legionella Control Association, confirming contractor competence. Our technical team will advise you about the latest legislative requirements and make sure your asset complies with current required standards and guidelines. We also offer a chemical cleaning or flushing solution as a remedy for special or high volumes of contamination.
