The role that cooling towers play in any manufacturing facility means that adequate maintenance is essential. Notably, scheduled maintenance of cooling towers is mandatory for efficient use of energy and low operational costs. Unfortunately, a majority of inspections tend to ignore a critical issue that affects the effective functioning of cooling towers -- vibrations. Since cooling towers are equipped with frames and rotating components such as fans and drive shafts, there is bound to be vibrations.
