Facility managers in charge of water system maintenance need an experienced, trusted partner to aid with testing and preventive treatment to keep these systems safe from bacteria, a partner like ChemREADY.
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.
Winterize your cooling towers as winter weather approaches, maintenance personnel can take proactive measures to help protect cooling towers from corrosion, bacterial contamination and potential health, safety, or operational issues
Legionella are ubiquitous bacteria with a worldwide spread in natural and artificial water environments, able to survive in a range of environmental conditions. Their ability to colonize our artificial water systems represents a serious concern for public health, since they can cause pneumonia and other respiratory illness (collectively referred to as “legionellosis”), especially in susceptible individuals.
Spring and fall are times for normal cooling tower maintenance, as staff performs their normal shut-down-startup routines. While there’s typically a lot of focus on the equipment procedures, proper water handling needs to be considered as well to avoid not only corrosion but bacterial growth. Here are common best practices to follow during seasonal maintenance.
