What is a cooling tower?

Water softener removes the salts from calcium, magnesium, and other metallics found in hard water. The treated soft water will not suffer from the same risk of Legionella and waterborne bacteria when heated, will require less soap for businesses requiring washing as a large component of their infrastructure, as soap will not be wasted during chemical bonding with the metallic ions. 

 

Legionella through cooling towers

Cooling towers pose a greater risk than many other components in your water system. It is therefore important that they are regularly maintained and serviced. The risk of legionella to users and employees within your facility is maximised when the water in your cooling tower is untreated or under-treated. The most common way Legionella bacteria is passed to humans is through mad-made water systems which are able to spread the bacteria through the air, making cooling towers a risk factor when considering Legionella prevention.

Legionella outbreaks have been linked to many components in the water system, one of the main components being cooling towers.  Legionella bacteria will thrive in any area under-maintained or neglected where the water is warm and where it is possible for it to become aerosolised (spread into the air). The bacteria will also thrive in cool and warm temperatures. To minimise risk you should keep temperatures in your water system above 50°C or below 20°C; in fact high temperatures are often maintained in order to kill Legionella.

Cooling towers are oa primary concern when it comes to Legionella prevention as they contain pools of warm (as mentioned above, an environment in which Legionella thrives) water that create the perfect conditions for Legionella bacteria to breed. Proper and  professional cleaning, disinfection and maintenance of cooling towers are required to control the risk of Legionella.

Cooling towers transmit Legionella so easity due to the way they operate. To operate, cooling towers diffuse heat and let evaporated water out. The evaporation process creates a fine mist which (if present) can pass Legionella bacteria into the air. 

 

Is my cooling tower at risk of Legionella?

 When a cooling tower is in need of maintenance and at risk of Legionella bacteria growing, limescale and other buld up mat form inside the tower. This is an indication that your cooling tower may need servicing.
