  • Legionella, water treatment and energy saving

    We can help improve health and safety and increase energy reduction. At the moment you probably keep water temperatures above 60°C and you probably undertake regular chemical or thermal water system treatments and shower head treatments, all to prevent the growth of Legionella in your water system. There are several reasons to do this including legal, safety, ...

  • Occurrence of Legionella in showers at recreational facilities

    Critical environments, including water systems in recreational settings, represent an important source of Legionella pneumophila infection in humans. In order to assess the potential risk for legionellosis, we analyzed Legionella contamination of water distribution systems in 36 recreational facilities equipped with swimming pools. One hundred and sixty water samples were ...

  • BioSense a Biofilm Monitor and Controller

    Abstract Biofilms (slime) can form on virtually every nonshedding surface, in a nonsterile aqueous environment i.e. anywhere where a water source is present; such as cooling/heating systems, swimming areas and in drinking water purification. These Biofilms can cause a myriad of problems including; harbouring harmful bacteria such as Legionella, inducing corrosion, and reducing ...

  • Biofilm control strategies in industrial processing waters

    Bacterial biofilms cause a number of serious problems for industrial fluid processing operations. Mechanical blockages, impedance of heat transfer processes and microbially induced corrosion result in billions of dollars of losses each year. In engineered systems, such as cooling water systems, food processing, and other industrial applications possible risk to public health and product spoilage ...

  • On tap: recreational waterborne disease at an all-time high

    Levels of recreational waterborne disease are at their highest since reporting began in 1978, suggesting the need for interventions aimed at reducing risks in natural and treated water systems. More outbreaks are reported related to recreational  waterborne diesease than drinking water sources. Every two years the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) publishes a report on waterborne ...

  • Biofilm Control for Industrial Waters

    Industrial operations can face a number of serious problems due to bacterial Biofilms growing in process water systems and cooling tower waters. Biofilm-induced corrosion, mechanical blockages and impedance of heat transfer processes result in huge monetary losses each year. In engineered systems, additional risks of biofilm-mediated contamination include negative public health consequences and ...

  • Sick-building syndrome and building-related illness

    Significant health problems linked to very poor indoor air qualityIndoor Air Quality (IAQ) deals with the content of interior air that could affect health and comfort of building occupants. The IAQ may be compromised by microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), chemicals (such as carbon monoxide, radon), allergens, or any mass or energy stressor are more prevalent than anyone could have predicted. ...
