Our Process of Biofilm Removal and Disinfection
Industrial cooling water systems naturally provide a favorable environment for bacteria to flourish. Even water systems that are chemically treated can contain high levels of bacteria, and harbor complex biofilm populations that can host a variety of problems.

We specialize in disinfecting and cleaning cooling tower systems to neutralize and remove biofilms. Our processes can also increase operational performance by removing biofilms, dirt, debris, and other foulants that can reduce heat transfer efficiency.

Our Process of Biofilm Removal and Disinfection
Large water storage tanks provide a favorable environment for bacteria to flourish. The combination of low circulation, ideal temperatures, and lack of consistent disinfection methods provide environmental conditions that favor biofilm formation. These biofilms can host a variety of problems, operationally as well as environmentally.

Our disinfection processes can increase the health and safety of the water systems by neutralizing and removing biofilms. They also help reduce the potential for corrosive bacteria that can lead to microbial-induced corrosion on system metallurgies, thereby helping to extend equipment life.

When industrial or domestic water systems become excessively contaminated, urgent and documented corrective actions may be the only solution.  If this type of emergency remediation is necessary, Precept Environmental can deploy a disinfection and remediation team to discreetly and effectively reestablish control of facility systems and associated equipment.

Not all disinfection procedures are equally effective.  Insufficient protocols can sometimes cause more harm than good.  Precept advisors will help management determine what corrective action protocols may best suit the situation.  All of our disinfection procedures are derived from standardized practices as prescribed by governing authorities such as ANSI, AWWA, OSHA, ASHRAE, and the CTI, and can be modified to minimize any facility downtime.
