Treatment of Legionella and Other Pathogens

You have detected Legionella Pneumophila in your piping system. What do you do next?

It is imperative that the limitations of each possible treatment technology are well understood before facility implementation. Failure to identify the most-appropriate technology for a particular facility could result in significant and unnecessary cost expenditures.

Alliance Can Help

F.W. Webb’s Alliance Environmental Group (AEG) can help you select the most efficacious and cost-effective approach for Legionella treatment, control, and mitigation. Our engineers and scientists can also assist with permitting and technology implementation. As a member of the F.W. Webb enterprise, AEG can tap a wealth of additional resources as needed. F.W. Webb has in-depth expertise in plumbing, heating, HVAC/R, PVF (pipe, valves, fittings), process controls, water works, pumps, high purity processes, gas products, building controls, and fire protection.

Treatment of Legionella and Other Pathogens

Questions to Consider

  • Do we need disinfection? What type?
  • Chlorine? Monochloramine? Chlorine dioxide?
  • Should we try UV light? Maybe copper-silver ionization, ozone, or even thermal eradication?
  • Should we combine applications?
  • What are the latest technological developments from Europe and Asia?
  • What are the pros and cons of each technology? What are the long-term costs for each technology?
