Industrial cooling systems are prone to microbiological contamination because as open water systems they provide the perfect habitat for bacteria, protozoa and algae. Problems with heat-insulating slime layers worsen in warmer weather, resulting in plugged heat exchangers, fouling cooling tower fill, and more persistent issues like increased under deposit corrosion risks and health risks from species like sulfate-reducing bacteria and Legionella.
