Healthcare Facilities Today posted a great article recently about protecting cities from diseases that proliferate in water systems. These bacteria can sometimes be deadly, so this type of protection cannot be understated.
The article mentions Delta’s Anti-Microbial towers, 6000 tons, installed at Lincoln Hospital in NY:
“These towers, which are rounded, not only solved the circulation problem but also have anti-microbial chemicals embedded into the tower’s HDPE material, which helps to prevent the growth of dangerous bacteria such as Legionella,” he says.
The towers the hospital selected were made by Delta Cooling Towers, which introduced the HDPE (high-density polyethylene) cooling tower in the 1970s.
While some cooling tower manufacturers now market a tower with an anti-microbial fill (the medium over which the hot water is distributed as it is being cooled), a vastly better option is to have a cooling tower featuring the fill, structural casing, and sump all composed of anti-microbial material.
The article is very informative and stresses the importance of these anti-microbial towers. I highly recommend you give the full article a read:
