    Innovative Biofouling Control Technology

    Biofouling is a major problem for the efficient operation of an open cooling water system. Slime produced by bacteria can very quickly form strong stable biofilm on heat exchanger, pipework and tower fill surfaces with really undesired consequences: Fast development - can be within days. Decrease heat transfer - 1µm of biofilm = 5 – 10 % less heat transfer. Decreased Flows ...
