Pre-startup actions such as initial water treatment and equipment coatings in cooling tower water systems can increase system life expectancy and efﬁciency, and reduce corrosion and fouling.
New industrial and commercial cooling tower water systems often experience serious corrosion, fouling, and microbiologically induced (or inﬂuenced) corrosion (MIC) within the ﬁrst year of operation. This corrosion can be prevented with proper pre-startup cleaning and coating of equipment, as well as initial treatment of the ﬁrst water added to the system.
