Link between Cooling Towers and Legionnaire’s Disease Hampering Growth

Legionellosis is an acute and potentially fatal respiratory infection caused by a bacteria of the Legionella genus. The bacteria are pervasive, usually live in soil and water, and multiply in large numbers in warmer water and in the presence of foulants, micro-organisms, and other nutrients. Legionella outbreaks have mostly been linked with cooling towers, hot tubs, potable water used for showering and drinking, and decorative fountains. Research has shown that cooling towers are a major concern owing to the fact that they contain large pools of warm water open to the atmosphere. Moreover, these towers operate by diffusing evaporated water and heat in the form of a fine mist. If not properly cleaned, maintained, and disinfected, cooling towers can be the perfect breeding ground for Legionella bacteria.

Owing to the potential dangers associated with cooling towers, consumer skepticism has resulted in a negative impact on the overall cooling towers market.
