According to a recent survey by Goodway Technologies, many facility managers have cooling tower maintenance programs in place, but many aren’t sure they are doing enough. Routine maintenance on cooling towers can often be overlooked or seen as labor-intensive, which is why Goodway is hosting a free webinar to educate participants on the impact of neglecting cooling towers and provide tips on how to execute preventative maintenance. The webinar, “Preventative Maintenance for Cooling Tower Systems,” will take place on Tuesday, June 12, 2018, at 2 p.m. EST.

Goodway’s liquid solutions expert, Ray Field, will discuss the importance of cooling tower maintenance for facilities and public health. In addition to the important health aspects, proper cooling tower maintenance helps to maintain overall system efficiency and reduce operational costs. Webinar participants will learn about the development of a preventative maintenance plan and the proper maintenance steps.

“Deferring cooling tower maintenance can have a significant impact on the overall efficiency of a cooling system and even result in the growth of infectious bacteria, such as Legionella,” says Field. “We want to help facility personnel transition from understanding the need for cooling tower maintenance to actually creating and implementing a plan that benefits operations and reduces health risks.”

With the introduction of ASHRAE Standard 188-2015, cooling tower maintenance continues to be a top priority for facility managers and leadership. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports there were about 6,100 cases of Legionnaire’s disease in the United States in 2016.

Field is a chemical engineer and certified water technologist with over 25 years of experience in water treatment and chemical products development. Currently, Field serves as director of liquid solutions for Goodway Technologies. He specializes in developing diversified chemical technologies, product management, and business development.
