Operation of a wet cooling tower in a cold weather climate is especially challenging. Without the correct operating procedures, cooling towers can become rather effective ice machines.
Depending on the cooling tower type, location and orientation, the necessary procedures may vary a bit but suffice it to say that without controls, serious damage to your cooling tower will occur. Additionally, personnel safety also be affected as stairways, ladders and other working platforms become very dangerous.
