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.
