GE Introduces New Biocide for Industrial Cooling Water Systems

A new biocide for industrial cooling water systems is designed to reduce microbiologically influenced corrosion and the potential risk of Legionella bacteria

The new biocide for industrial cooling water systems is designed to reduce microbiologically influenced corrosion and the potential risk of Legionella bacteria. GE’s Spectrus TD1100E is a non-oxidizing microbiological control agent used to kill or control growth of microbial populations in open evaporative cooling systems.

Cooling water systems are essential to production in many industrial plants and for comfort cooling in commercial and institutional facilities. Corrosion and microbiological fouling must be kept at bay to avoid damage to equipment and system inefficiencies, which can result in losses in production and/or excessive water and energy consumption. In addition, microbiological growth that is not tightly controlled can result in increased employee and community exposure to health risks including Legionnaires’ disease.

GE’s new biocide improves heat transfer rates, increases efficiency, reduces the amount of chemicals, which lowers environmental impact and diminishes absorbable organic halogens in effluent water. Spectrus TD1100E also reduces sessile bacteria (biomass), which is a key risk factor for Legionella development on a cooling system.
