Capital repair, reconstruction of cooling towers
First conducted examination or visual inspection of structures and its elements, on the basis of the data consists of a list of necessary repair measures to further normal functioning of the facility.
The most urgent problem that has to face is the formation of cracks in concrete structures, violation of the integrity of the lining of metal corrosion. The reasons for the formation of such damage include changes in temperature, humidity, wind loads, repetitive freezing and thawing of concrete, temporary shrinkage, different linear expansion coefficients of different materials.
At the initial stage appearance of destructive factors, while the scale of their effects are not significant, is possible to manage permanent repair cooling towers. It includes: cleaning of the weak and peeled off the concrete; amplification and restore concrete surfaces; repair of seams, joints, cracks small size; repair of concrete structures; repair waterproofing layer; replace the facing; anti corrosion protection of steel structures.
Capital repair of cooling tower provides larger scale conducted repairs and recovery work, aimed at restoring structures, its integrity and performance properties. A set of works during capital repair of operations partially repeats current repairs, but it can be expanded to work on the concrete. There is working on fitting: the replacement of damaged parts, anti-corrosion treatment, and protection. More complete and scale removal and repair of damaged concrete.
Reconstruction of cooling tower options involves major repairs, as well as measures aimed at modernization of cooling tower construction with possible formation of new performance.
