In any type of cooling system; open or closed, once through or recirculating, growth of microorganisms is a major hindrance. The available heat from the water, air, nutrients and the […]
Garratt-Callahan Formula 9420 Operators and managers of industrial heating, cooling and ventilation water systems rely on water treatment to ensure heat exchange efficiency and to extend system life expectancy. However, […]
With the global pandemic and variants of viruses being spread via aerosolized and aspirated droplets, water safety is more critical now than at any other time in our global history. Waterborne pathogens found in water systems include building sprinklers, water features, fountains, and delivery pipes. Anywhere water is stored, left to sit, or is used intermittently, or held in pipes is subject to the creation of biofilms. These hard-to-remove biofilms allow the bacteria to grow and multiply in a protected shell until eventually released and is aerosolized through various point-of-use devices.
Doctors order tests to verify a suspected diagnosis or simply to confirm we are as well as we feel. The tests reveal a great deal about what is going on […]
The efficiency of cooling towers is always a topic of discussion and worth a deeper dive. Even a well-controlled scale or corrosion inhibitor program can be significantly affected by the presence of flourishing microorganisms. Because the interior of a cooling tower is usually moist and warm, it provides an ideal condition for microorganisms to flourish and they subsequently migrate throughout the entire cooling system.
