In the third installment of the 4 part series covering Legionella basics and prevention, we will briefly review cooling tower water treatment methods designed to control Legionella. This is done by changing the conditions that are favorable for the bacterium’s growth.
Environmental Earthwise provides customized scale inhibitor programs for your specific system and its processes, allowing mineral scale and sludge prevention. Two examples of the types of contaminants that interfere with the overall process are mineral scales and sludge/organics.
Legionella is found in all water systems. It is particularly worrisome in systems that atomize water. Our experience and control methodology are being employed at the two largest teaching hospitals in Chicago.
