Spectrus TD1100E is a non-oxidizing microbiological control agent used to kill or control growth of microbial populations in open evaporative cooling systems. It is designed to reduce microbiologically influenced corrosion and the potential risk of Legionella bacteria, helping avoid damage to equipment and keeping system inefficiencies at bay. A decreased use of chemicals lowers environmental impact.

Monitoring System

Company Reference: 

The V-SURE wireless remote monitoring system for VRTX cooling water treatment solutions provides operational feedback and alerts. The GSM phone modem interfaces with a programmable logic controller that automates operation while monitoring performance. The system can communicate with and monitor a VRTX system independent of network, and data are made available via a secure Web portal. If an alarm condition occurs, the system alerts personnel who can troubleshoot and repair many issues remotely.

Scaling Back Bacteria

The Legionella bacterium, Legionella pneumophila — the fundamental agent of Legionnaires’ disease — is a water-based organism that causes infection when inhaled in aerosol form. Legionnaires’ disease acquired its name in 1976, when an outbreak of pneumonia occurred among attendees of a convention of the American Legion in Philadelphia. Later, the bacterium causing the illness was named Legionella.
