While there are only three technical steps to our cooling tower fan blade services—clean, repair, and refinish—below is the complete process we follow for every job from start to finish:
Request a quote, and we’ll contact you about setting up an on-site inspection at your facility. During the inspection, we will work closely with you to identify problems and find the solutions that best fit your operation.
Once we have determined the best plan of action for your facility, we can schedule your fan blade repair and restoration work during one of your regularly scheduled maintenance periods, keeping downtime to a minimum. Some jobs take as little as three days to complete.
We begin the work by cleaning your blades using high-pressure washing equipment. This removes mineral and environmental buildup from the surface and restores your equipment to its original condition.
Next, we examine your blades and look for any issues that might need fixing, like nicks, dings, and erosion. When necessary, we use UV-resistant resins and epoxies to make your blades “like new” again.
After cleaning and restoring your blades to their original condition, they are ready to be refinished using a fully submersible and UV-resistant-grade epoxy. We then check the balancing of the fan to ensure optimal operation. Balance is maintained consistently because the blades remain where they are while we do our work.
With restoration complete, we will get you started on our Blade Smart Maintenance Program to maximize the life of your restored blades. We will work within your schedule to set up your future maintenance inspections.
