Commercial water treatment keeps us safe and prevents illness
We know that as engineers, contractors, building owners, and facility maintenance managers, you face challenges with commercial water treatment systems in air conditioning units or commercial disinfection in boiler and heating systems. Maybe you face a domestic challenge with a chlorination system.
You know that the water you work with needs to be clean. For example, the water we drink and shower in must be free from bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungus spores to prevent illnesses. In air conditioning, boiler and heating systems, the challenge is to keep pipes free from corrosion which will make the system less efficient and prevent the growth of bacteria.
Industry-Leading Accuracy and Precision
The Grundfos SMART Digital Dosing Range offers dosing pumps which give you unmatched chemical dosing precision and accuracy for optimal disinfection water treatment. Learn how the pump’s ability to act as a system diagnostics expert paired with variable-speed stepper motor technology solves operational headaches and improves reliability.
How to Use Legionella Treatment in Commercial Buildings
Everyone needs healthy water. And that means the people who provide it have an extra responsibility to make sure it is clean and free from health hazards. One of the greatest of those is Legionella pneumophilia – the bacterium that causes Legionnaire’s disease.
Legionella will thrive in any system where there is water and a temperature that will help it to grow. That means things like evaporative cooling systems, spas, swimming pools and even smaller water systems with low flow rates and where there are badly serviced water tanks. A slimy film forms, which creates the perfect habitat.
For people with weakened immune systems, smokers and the elderly, Legionella can be fatal if not treated within four days. Effective disinfection by a commercial water treatment system is a vital way to keep Legionella at bay and to keep everyone who uses a building safe from its effects.
This application guide describes the measures to be taken in order to operate commercial water treatment systems to ensure that commercial buildings are kept safe, and that residential buildings are as well. It describes what Legionella is, what Legionella treatment looks and shows how sources can be treated with the best possible effect.
