Cooling tower fill plays an important part in heat transfer. It also plays an equally important part of keeping deadly bacteria from flourishing. Scale, mineral and biological deposits on cooling tower fill can rapidly become breeding grounds for deadly bacteria that can cause Legionella.
Cooling towers are basically big, giant air scrubbers. Dirty, pollen and a variety of other debris can quickly gather on tower surfaces and create perfect breeding grounds for bacteria, like Legionella, to flourish. Additionally, due to the natural evapriative action of towers, lime scale and other mineral deposits often form on tower fill. These scale deposits aren't just ugly, they also provide addtional surface area for bacterial growth. Even the most stringent water treatment struggles to keep scale suspended, and bacteria at bay. That's why consistently scheduled maintenance to remove mineral and biological deposits form your cooling tower surfaces is required.
