Biofilm, Amoeba, and Legionella

Biofilms are the root cause of serious problems in building potable and industrial water systems including clogged piping, reduced heat transfer efficiency, microbiologically-influenced corrosion, and Legionella transmission. Biofilms are dynamic, complex structures optimized for microbial growth and survival, which make them difficult to remove and control.

Your Dirty AC Coils Could Be Costing You Big Time

Air conditioning (AC) systems that do not function properly can be cumbersome. Properly maintaining these units is critical––especially the coils, whether they are in an air handling unit or a packaged air conditioning unit. These delicate coils require regular upkeep to preserve the life of the AC unit, maintain capacity, improve energy efficiency, and ensure the indoor air quality is at its best.

Identifying Types of Corrosion in Water Systems

Corrosion in water systems is a costly problem.  In the United States alone, the costs associated with corrosion in water and wastewater systems are estimated to exceed $50 billion annually. The metal loss resulting from corrosion reduces system life, increases maintenance costs, and ultimately results in premature equipment failure. Corrosion can also produce deposits that impede water flow, foul heat exchange surfaces, and reduce overall water system efficiency.  A basic understanding of the different types of corrosion can help you diagnose and solve corrosion related problems.
