Cooling tower Legionella control is necessary so the Legionella bacteria does not grow and spread within the towers. Legionella bacteria are a type of bacteria that can cause Legionnaires' disease, a serious lung infection. Cooling towers are one of the most common places where Legionella bacteria can grow and spread. This is because cooling towers are large, open structures that contain water and a warm, humid environment, which are ideal conditions for Legionella bacteria to grow.
ORP stands for oxidation-reduction potential. It is a measure of the tendency of a substance to either gain or lose electrons in a chemical reaction. Learn about its importance in water treatment here.
Cooling towers are essential components of many industrial and commercial facilities. These systems utilize the heat exchange process to efficiently cool water. Learn more with ChemREADY on Cooling Tower Efficiency.
An overview of what you should know about water treatment systems while working in the water treatment industry.
Fluorescence is a valuable tool in detecting tagged polymers in cooling tower water treatment. The method is rapid, non-destructive, easy to use, and cost-effective, making it a useful tool for monitoring the concentration of tagged polymers to maintain water quality and prevent the growth of microorganisms and corrosion.
Every industry has certain “set it and forget it” systems that are easy to ignore. The water cooling towers, quietly perched on the rooftop of your facility is one of those systems. Or is it? Revenue could be slipping away through that equipment, and needlessly so. Here are six tips to help prevent profits from evaporating unchecked into the atmosphere.
