Biofouling Control in Small Cooling Towers

January 15, 2017

Why is biofouling control overlooked in small cooling towers?

Biofouling control in small to medium cooling towers is overlooked. AMSA, Inc. has developed a simple technology that is easier to dose than more common liquid chemical equivalents.  DTEA II® Slow Release tablets give personnel at schools, hospitals, and office buildings a safer treatment option that can last up to 30 days.  Most importantly, when used in conjunction with a solid form of DBNPA, such as, AQUCAR™ SUMP BUDDY™ DB 40 TL Water Treatment Microbiocide you have an effective Biofilm Control Program®.

This short video shows how easily biofouling control in small cooling towers can be achieved using DTEA II® Slow Release tablets.
