AquaTech® BC181


Water Treatment Biocide

This product is a specialised chemical formulation designed to combat microbial growth within cooling tower systems. Cooling towers are crucial in various industrial processes, including those in the food industry, where water quality is paramount.

The fact that this product is NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) registered is a significant point. NSF registration implies that the product has undergone rigorous testing and meets stringent safety and efficacy standards. This is particularly important in industries like food processing, where hygiene and safety are critical.

The product is explicitly suited for cooling applications within the food industry. In food processing, it's essential to ensure that water used in cooling processes remains clean and free from harmful microbial contaminants.

Why choose AquaTech BC181 

  • Alternate Actives: Actives of biocides used in cooling towers must be periodically switched. This helps to prevent organisms from building resistance to the actives used as primary biocides. Aquatech BC 181 is an ideal alternative biocide to complement Aquatech BC 110.


  • Effective Prevention: One of the primary reasons for choosing this biocide is its effectiveness in preventing two specific issues:

  • Biofilm Formation: Biofilm is a slimy layer of microorganisms that can form on surfaces in cooling systems. It can reduce heat transfer efficiency and promote the growth of harmful bacteria. This biocide effectively prevents biofilm formation, crucial for maintaining the cooling system's efficiency.

  • Legionella pneumophila Control: Legionella pneumophila is a bacterium that can cause Legionnaires' disease, a potentially severe and even fatal form of pneumonia. Cooling towers can be breeding grounds for Legionella bacteria. The product's ability to control Legionella pneumophila is vital for ensuring the safety of workers and consumers in the food industry.

  • Compatibility: The product is compatible with Aquatech products designed for cooling tower treatment programs. Compatibility is essential because it allows for a seamless integration of the biocide into existing water treatment processes. It ensures that the product does not interfere with the performance of other treatment chemicals, making it a practical choice for ongoing water management.
