Hospital cooling towers can also scale up and corrode, but left untreated, the warm, dirty water they can contain will encourage bacteria to grow, and Legionnaires' disease can be the fatal consequence.

In many cases, effluent water from one process can be suitable for reuse in another process if given suitable treatment. This can reduce costs by lowering charges for water consumption, reduce the costs of effluent disposal because of reduced volume and lower energy costs due to the recovery of heat in recycled wastewater. Dober’s Smart Release total solid feed chemistry and equipment solution offers a better alternative to liquid chemistries by featuring a simple system, safe to handle and reliable chemistries to treat hospital water treatment.
