CASE HISTORY SPOTLIGHT: Case History #102: Concrete Cooling Tower Repair


A major power supplier needed high quality repair materials to fix cooling towers that had been damaged by corrosion and contaminated by chlorides and carbonation. Prior to placing repair mortars, MCI®-2020 was sprayed into the area where concrete had spalled. The cavity was then filled in using MCI®-2038 and MCI®-2039. Surrounding areas were treated with MCI®-2020 to fight the ring-anode effect that can accelerate corrosion in concrete adjacent to repairs. In this way, the immediate repair was completed using a proven technology that would have ongoing effects to mitigate future corrosion and concrete damage.
