Water Treatment for HVAC Systems
Cooling towers spray water through the air where it is maintained highly oxygenated but also becomes corrosive to metal piping and system components. Corrosion products from this process can foul and clog the system to the point where it will cease to function properly. Cooling towers can also become breeding grounds for fouling grows of algae and bacterial slimes that can interfere with equipment efficiency and operation. Cooling towers can even become sources of organisms that can threaten human health and life. Read more about Legionella here. Many municipalities recognize the need for regularly scheduled maintenance and cleanings and New York City has even released specific Cooling Tower Guidelines.
