Legionellae exist naturally in bodies of water like rivers and streams, only really becoming dangerous in certain conditions and in higher concentrations. Industrial and commercial water supplies like those found in cooling towers and swimming pools are the main places that we’ve seen outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease in the past.
ChemREADY is a Legionella Water Treatment Company located in the Midwest region of the United States. ChemREADY is ready to provide our state of the art technology and products to ensure the proper treatment of water and eliminate legionella while keeping your systems as efficient as possible.
While legionellae exist naturally in bodies of water like rivers, lakes, and streams, they are relatively harmless in these natural states. Only in certain situations can the bacteria flourish enough to pose a significant health risk.
ChemREADY provides high-performance equipment and chemicals to maximize treatment against legionella. Our professional, highly trained technical consulting experts specialize in system facility operations, preventive care and protection against Legionella by using state-of-the-art technology to track and report systems performance.
Through the use of our specialized, legionella treatment chemicals, we assure productivity is maintained and equipment downtime does not result in costly plant shutdowns.
Experts believe that industrial water systems and water supplies are some of the biggest hotspots for the spread of Legionnaires’ disease. Past outbreaks were linked to:
We offer a broad spectrum of efficient, cost-effective, biocides and treatment services that will help you achieve your goal of manufacturing excellent products.
Born from the Legionella bacteria, Legionnaires’ disease is a form of pneumonia or severe lung inflammation caused by an infection. People are primarily exposed to this fatal disease by inhaling microscopic water droplets that contain the bacteria.
With the right strategy, implementing a water management plan can be a seamless way to handle your facility’s water treatment and ensure you don’t experience a legionella outbreak. Learn more about the steps of a proper water treatment plan here.
Another way to be able to prevent issues with legionella can be to install an advanced legionella warning system. PathogenALERT’s Legionella Advanced Warning (L.A.W.) system would be an example of a warning system that includes a remote monitoring system for Legionella detection and control with automated and continuous on-site monitoring of airborne Legionella. If you want to learn more about how these systems can benefit your operations, check out our article on new water treatment technologies.
The control of microbiological activity is an important, often safety critical, activity in many commercial, manufacturing and industrial process applications such as cooling towers, closed systems, and cold water storage tanks. Legionella can be prevented in your system with two critical pieces.
First, creating the proper water treatment plan to combat any potential outbreaks like we mentioned earlier. Knowing where your at risk sites are, along with having a proper management team in place will help prevent the spread of any hazards in water treatment. Communicate your goals and fears about your plan. If you need frequent inspections and high volumes of product, you’ll want to keep your chemical costs low, but not so low that it jeopardizes safety or reliability. If you’re looking for someone to handle your water treatment needs, contact us and we’ll be glad to help.
Second is choosing the right biocide depending on your water needs. Its important to know what water standards you have to treat for. For example, you’ll need to communicate if your water is used in food or industrial use as different chemicals can only be used in certain situations. To ensure that such systems are safe, well maintained and operate at optimum efficiency it is essential that the correct water conditions are maintained at all times.
