Know the risks of Legionella growth and spread throughout your water system.
Craft experts can design an effective treatment program for you.
Our approach to preventing the potentially deadly disease known as Legionnaires Disease is to be entirely proactive. Waiting for illness to be realized allows the problem within the systems where the bacteria grow to escalate and become difficult to deal with. Proactivity saves both the system infrastructure and lives that could be affected.
The first step to a proactive approach is to determine whether there is an eminent problem which needs immediate action or a potential problem that allows time for a logical progression of decisions to be made. By running a small quantity of targeted bacterial analyses, a facility can determine the criticality of their problem and allow that to guide their actions.
Epidemiologists agree that following a statistical approach to system evaluation helps in both remediation and prevention scenarios as well as fully evaluating the status of a system. A review of system mechanics as well as a full battery of statistically significant sample analyses allows a facility to follow a logical path to disease prevention.
As an affiliate of the most experienced Legionella Analysis and Engineering Laboratory Group, we bring the best and brightest specialists to the determination of the need for action. As a CDC ELITE Laboratory utilizing multi-layer bacteria detection technologies, this group provides the most reliable results without numerous false positives or negatives.
Since 2015, the ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) 188 Standard for the Prevention of Legionnaires Disease has been the primary guidance document for this endeavor. The need for and eventual compliance is fairly straightforward and our experts can help any facility know whether they need to comply and how to accomplish that.
In addition to short term remediation practices (hyperchlorination, high temperature flush), we have access to the most effective pro-active and reactive disinfection technology in the world - Monochloramine Generation utilizing the patented Sanikill® technology from Sanipur US. Third party research confirms that this technology is the most effective remediation method used to date both in most rapid duration and prolonged effectiveness.
Should ASHRAE compliance be required of a facility, we are fully equipped to provide the full battery of WMP authoring services whether that be facilitation of internal work or management of the entire plan authoring and implementation process.
