Evaporative cooling: how to prepare for the arrival of summer

The correct maintenance of the evaporative refrigeration equipment will avoid the proliferation of the legionella bacteria.

It is essential to emphasize the importance of the maintenance of the towers and the evaporative condensers, since in this way we optimize their operation, favor energy savings and guarantee social and sanitary security.

Mention requires that legionella is not an exclusive problem of cooling towers, but rather affects all the facilities contemplated in Royal Decree 865/2003 of July 4 (public sources, irrigation systems, spas, swimming pools, vaporizers or systems of sanitary hot water ….).

Good maintenance has paid off since, in recent years, none of the outbreaks registered in our country have been related to evaporative refrigeration equipment. Recent reports indicate that 58% of outbreaks are caused by contagion from sanitary hot water networks.

Control y Ventilacion, S.L. is a company of international renown within the industrial and livestock sector, for being a manufacturer of products within the evaporative cooling sector, such as the HUMIBAT, evaporative plastic cooler; or its NUCLEOS towers, Cooling Towers. In both products, the substrate in which the evaporative process is produced is a plastic honeycomb, a honeycomb resistant both to physical and chemical attacks, and at the same time flexible, a honeycomb with a mesh structure, made of polyethylene High Density, and marketed under the names of PANAL C & V or in the case of being a drop separator, SEPARADOR C & V .
