Cooling Tower Mechanical Supports
Check all bolted connections between the structure itself and the support on fiberglass and steel towers. Look for evidence of iron rot wherever the support contacts the structure on wood towers. Examine all steel components for loss of metal or corrosion, especially near bearing surfaces and welds. Check the tightness of the connections between the support and the mechanical equipment and between the support and the tower structure. Check all bolted connections in the support itself for proper condition of hardware and tightness.
