Calcium Hypochlorite is a solid biocide option for treating cooling towers. Fouling of cooling towers by microbiological growth can lead to operational issues such as increased corrosion and decreased heat transfer efficiency. Microorganisms may be free floating in the water (i.e. planktonic), but most likely they will be present in the form of biofilm (i.e. sessile). Biofilms protect microorganisms, reduce heat transfer efficiency, and promote corrosion, so any cooling tower treatment program needs to minimize biofilm formation.
