Capabilities of Biocides

Cooling Tower Pumps

What are biocides used for?

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.

Product CodeProductDescription
