Microbiological Control

Microbiological Control is equally important for a cooling water program to be successful. Not only will microbiological fouling impede heat transfer, it will also set up a localized corrosion cell. Biological slimes can allow anaerobic microorganisms to thrive, which creates a localized corrosion cell which will result in pit type corrosion. Pitting corrosion is the most severe type of corrosion, with the ability to create holes in equipment in a short period of time.

In evaluating different treatment programs, one must assume that good biological control will be maintained via the use of appropriate biocides.
