Removal of legionnaire bacteria, legionnaire controversy and desinfection of drinking water systems

Current legislation concerning legionnaire bacteria requires an active approach to hygiene, stricter procedures and/or the integration of procedures. Drinking water systems obviously need to be kept free of bacteria, but this is not always easy.

Alongside legionnaire bacteria, which thrive best at temperatures between 30 and 60 degrees Celsius, there is also a risk of system contamination by scale, iron and grease, as well as viruses, bacteria and mould. These bacteria secrete a substance that forms a so-called biofilm – a layer of slime – in the pipes. When bacteria starts to nestle in the biofilm, it is very difficult to eliminate them and they multiply explosively. Thorough chemical cleaning of the complete transportation and distribution network removes contamination in the water system and prevents future contamination.

Cleaning and desinfection of drinking water systems:

  • Elimination of undesired contamination and bacteria in water pipes
  • Prevention of future contamination
  • Removal of legionnare
  • Desinfection of systems
