Who is cleaning your cooling tower?
With warmer weather on the way, it will soon be time to put cooling towers back into service. According to legislation passed by New York State effective 11/15/2015, “All owners shall ensure that all cooling towers are cleaned and disinfected when shut down for more than five days” and “any person who performs cleaning and disinfection shall be a commercial pesticide applicator who is qualified to apply biocide in a cooling tower and certified in accordance with the requirements of Article 33 of the Environmental Conservation Law and 6 NYCRR Part 325”. Suffice to say, it is important to make sure your cooling towers are cleaned by a qualified professional.

Mitigate Health Risks
Biofilms and scale within cooling towers are favorite hiding spots for Legionella bacteria, including L. pneumophelia – the bacterium responsible for 90% of cases of Legionnaire’s Disease. Thoroughly cleaning all facets of the tower will help mitigate and eliminate these potential harborages, thus creating a healthier environment for those in the area of your building.
In addition to maintaining compliance, regular cleaning of your cooling tower can maintain or restore lost efficiency due to algae, biofilms, scale, dirt and dust. Badly fouled and scaled systems can see a restoration of up to 30% efficiency!
