As water circulates through your cooling tower system, bacteria grows attaching itself system surfaces producing a protective, jelly-like coating to form a biofilm. This biofilm can cause serious cooling tower problems and are extremely hard to control.

  • Corrosion Damage: Corrosive bacteria can grow to high levels under biofilms
  • Harmful Pathogens: Harmful pathogens can grow in biofilm
  • Increased Energy Costs: Biofilms are very insulating. They reduce heat transfer efficiency 4x more than calcium scale deposits

The bioeXile biofilm cleaning process disrupts the calcium bridge to allow the biocide to destroy the biofilm. bioeXile works with biocide additions to remove biofilm more effectively than using biocides alone or with biodispersants. This disrupts the persistor mechanism making it more difficult for biofilm to re-form.

The bioeXile process helps keep the waterside surfaces clean by removing stubborn biofilms not controlled by routine biocide additions.

  • Improves energy
  • Reduces corrosion
  • Helps your biocide program control waterborne pathogens
