Microbiological and Corrosion Control in Cooling Water Systems

COURSE NO: H02-007
Microbiological and Corrosion Control in Cooling Water Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the design, construction and process control considerations for microbiological and corrosion control in cooling water systems.


Microbiological organisms are composed of three classes: algae, bacteria, and fungus. Large biological organisms such as clams, snails, mussels, or similar species are referred to as macrobiological organisms. The presence of any biological growth can be detrimental to cooling tower operations. Problems include fouling, corrosion, and loss of efficiency. These problems can lead to downtime, higher operating cost, and even premature replacement of equipment. Additionally, some bacteria are pathogenic and can pose a risk to human life. To alleviate these problems, proper implementation of microbiological and corrosion control measures in cooling water systems is imperative.


This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil, environmental and sanitary engineers as well as other design and construction professionals interested in learning about microbiological and corrosion control in cooling
