Legionella Control

Legionella pneumophila is a facultative intracellular pathogen, and is the causative agent of Legionnaires' disease and other pneumonias, especially in immunocompromised hosts. The bacteria infect, multiply within and eventually kill macrophages; they themselves avoid destruction by preventing fusion of the phagosome with lysosomes of the macrophage. They can also infect free-living amoebae, and are nearly ubiquitous in warm fresh water supplies (e.g., air-conditioning cooling towers).

Seaco has treatments for this pathogen in cooling towers using microbiocide treatments to aid with disinfection. We can provide Seaco account technical representatives who will work with you to diagnose the problem and develop and implement an effective treatment plan that fits your needs.

Speak with a Seaco technical representative and see the difference.
