Monitoring Biomass in (Cooling Tower) Waters through ATP monitoring
The TOXcontrol can be used for ATP monitoring. Currently our company is doing research for further developments for this application on the TOXcontrol.
Monitoring the microbial population of cooling towers is necessary in order to maintain the proper operation of the system. Conventional methods for monitoring microbial populations work by culturing microorganisms, a time-consuming procedure that requires days or even weeks of incubation before the results are known. Biofouling can be well-advanced before treatment begins. In addition, it is believed that this technique does not detect the full range of microbial life present in cooling systems.
