Biocides

Biocides are used to inhibit the formation of, or kill existing biological growth (algae, bacteria, yeast, fungi, slime, etc.) within a cooling water system to keep systems clean and prevent biological fouling. Biological fouling may coat or clog internal heat transfer surfaces & slow water velocity which reduces cooling efficiency, and can also promote under-deposit corrosion.
