Cooling tower pack
Cleaning of the cooling tower pack
Removal of the cooling tower pack, where this can be done relatively easily and reinstated safely without damage, will inform the inspection and assessment and aid any potential cleaning but the construction of the tower and the practicability of the pack removal should be considered when reaching a decision on the means by which the water system is to be maintained in a clean state. However, whether the pack is removed or not, evidence of its cleanliness should be demonstrated, an assessment made using appropriate techniques and the findings recorded.
Detailed guidance cooling tower pack is available in HSG274 Part 1, pages 32 and 37.
