Most organisations are keen to take steps to control the growth of micro-organisms which can flourish inside closed circuit water systems, including closed heating and cooling systems. Controlling the growth of bacteria in such closed circuit systems can also help to prevent the build-up of biofilm on the inside of pipe surfaces. It will also help limit the bacterial breakdown of any corrosion inhibitor chemicals that have been added to the water in the system.
Preventing the Growth of Bacteria & Biofilm in Closed Systems
So how do we stop bacteria growing in a closed system? This is usually done by adding a carefully selected biocide into the water.
However, adding biocide into the water isn’t the end of the process. It’s also essential to consider a number of other elements to ensure you achieve the best protection for your closed systems:
Choosing Biocides for Closed Circuit Water Systems
There’s lots to think about when choosing a biocide to use in your closed system, whether you’re using it for pre-commission cleaning, a flush, system maintenance or to provide a “shock dose” to tackle a problem. Here are a number of important issues for you to consider when choosing a closed system biocide:
Key Points when Choosing Biocides for Closed Systems
Expert Management of Closed Heating & Cooling Systems
Water Treatment Services provide expert advice and support covering the management of closed heating and chilled water systems ncluding pre-commisson cleaning and flushing in accordance with BSRIA guidance (BG 29/2012) during the final commissioning stages for all newly installed and refurbished closed water systems.
With offices in London serving the South and South East England, Manchester (North West), Birmingham (Midlands), Bristol (South East England and Wales), Leeds (North and North East) and Glasgow (Scotland), supported by regional teams of specially trained engineers, in-field water treatment service specialists and technicians we can offer cost effective management of closed circuit systems and engineering support services throughout the UK and Ireland.
