It’s Easy, Safe, and Simple! Many industries, especially food, beverage, and healthcare must ensure a highly efficacious program for the control of pathogens, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi, and algae. Sodium hypochlorite solutions (e.g. bleach) have long been the go-to product for many disinfection applications. Chlorine dioxide, however, has many advantages over sodium hypochlorite and is […]
Boiler Water Treatment
Boiler water treatment topics will unravel the challenges of controlling scale, corrosion and sludge build-up from heat transfer surfaces. Other relevant topics will include steam purity to steam quality, and the details about the relationship between reducing energy and maintenance costs by maximizing the life and efficiency of boiler equipment.
Imagine taking a relaxing shower after a day of attending seminars and ending up getting sick instead. This could be a very real scenario in the upcoming days when many hotels and even hospitals open after a long shutdown. One potential reason? Legionella pneumophila.
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 pH level create an ideal environment for rapid growth often results in biofilm and slime. Organizations like hospitals, data centers, factories and even large commercial […]
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, operational changes or issues relating to treatment failures, corrosion, or scale formation may warrant cleaning. Water containing high amounts of silica, if not properly controlled […]
