Cooling Tower Management

Cooling tower management

Expert water management strategy.

While cooling tower systems are integral components of industrial processes, these systems can become breeding grounds for Legionella. Glacier Environmental Ltd are experts in cooling tower management for Legionella control. We follow the HSE’s specific guidance on controlling the risk to Legionella in evaporative cooling systems.

What does cooling tower management involve?

If you use a cooling tower within your facility, you will likely need to pair it with a water treatment system, of which there are many different types. A water treatment system provided by Glacier Environmental allows for more efficient processes in the cooling tower, effective biological management, as well as a longer lifespan for equipment.

Effective management strategies for preventing Legionella contamination include:

Water Treatment
Implementing appropriate water treatment methods, such as biocides, corrosion inhibitors, and scale inhibitors can help control bacterial growth and prevent biofilm formation.

Regular Cleaning and Disinfection
Scheduled cleaning and disinfection of cooling towers, piping, and associated equipment are essential for removing biofilms and eliminating Legionella bacteria.

Water Quality Monitoring
Conducting routine water quality tests, including weekly chemical checks and quarterly Legionella testing, helps identify potential contamination early and allows for timely corrective actions.

Compliant cooling water management is essential not only for efficient industrial processes, but also for safeguarding public health by preventing Legionella contamination. By understanding the risk factors associated with Legionella growth and implementing effective control measures, industries can ensure the safety of their cooling water systems and mitigate the risk of Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks.
