Legionella, which is also known as Legionnaires’Disease, is caused by the inhalation of small or micro water drops contains legionella pneumophila bacteria.
According to the public researches, the growth of legionella in installations is mainly stimulated by: ‐Temperatures between 25 and 50 °C ‐Stagnant water and dead spots ‐Rust, sediment and other contaminations ‐Presence of biofilm and other microorganisms ‐No or insufficient maintenance
The above last factor is often neglected. A regular and suitable maintenance can not only optimize your cooling tower’s operation, but also minimize the risk of legionella. In most cases, those cooling towers which caused a legionella problem, were working with limited care or even no maintenance.
