Water Disinfection (ex. Cooling Towers)


ECOTHOR®-D is a simple to operate, chemical-free, cost-effective solution to bacteria elimination in at-risk water circuits such as those for cooling towers, hotel & hospital hot water systems, spas and other mist-generating applications. ECOTHOR®-D offers a green building solution that enables water conservation and re-use, potentially generating LEED points.

ECOTHOR®-D applies an electrical current through the water which is passing through a reactor. The current is generated via the potential difference in voltage between the electrodes. The current ionizes the organic compounds on the surface of the bacterial and biofilm cell walls in the water, which results in the modification of the characteristics of the cell wall inducing the inactivation of the organism and its elimination.
