Chiller Towers or Cooling Towers & Legionnaires
Regular maintenance is required for eliminating bacteria such as E Coli, Listeria, C Diff and many other harmful pathogens. Legionella (the cause of Legionnaires Disease) can develop on cooling fins during the warmer months.
Cooling towers, evaporative condensers, and fluid coolers use a fan to move air through a recirculated water system. This allows a considerable amount of water vapor and sometimes droplets to be introduced into the surroundings, despite the presence of drift eliminators designed to limit droplet release. This water may be in the ideal temperature range for Legionnaires’ disease bacteria (LDB) growth, 20°-50°C (68°-122°F). Good maintenance is necessary, both to control LDB growth and for effective operation.
This application eliminates Legionella and the threat of air systems being responsible for sick building syndrome.
To schedule regular maintenance contact a licensed and insured professional.
