Biofilm Minutes - Open Cooling Towers

 

Watch the new episode of the web series by ALVIM!

In industrial cooling towers, bacterial growth on surfaces (biofilm) causes serious problems, both contributing to the deterioration of materials and, most important, increasing the risk of harmful microbiological contaminations (e.g. Legionella pneumophila). For these reasons, large amounts of chemical substances (biocides) are used to limit microbiological growth in such systems. Thanks to ALVIM System, it is possible to adjust biocide/sanitation treatments based on the real-time information provided by the Sensor and, at the same time, to check the effectiveness of such treatments.
