Results from an independent laboratory analysis in the United Kingdom show that VRTX controlled-cavitation technology has the ability to effectively control Legionella.
VRTX Technologies in Schertz, Texas, makes non-chemical water treatment products for cooling towers and evaporative condensers that employs kinetic energy. According to the company, the use of its technology reduced the number of Legionella Pneumophila Serogroup 1 from concentrations of 1 x 107CFU/liter to below detection limits. Three separate trials were conducted with various startingconcentrations of Legionella, VRTX says.
The independent Legionella analysis was conducted for VRTXuk by consultant Alan Edwards and Partners in Bowden, Altrihcnham, Chesire, U.K., and Mercian Science, an accredited laboratory in Minworth, Sutton Coldfield., U.K. Alan Edwards and Partners, an independent consulting firm specializing in the treatment and management of water systems, worked within the U.K.'s guidelines from the Health and Safety Commission's ACoP L8 – Approved Code of Practice and Guidance document titled "Legionnaires' Disease: The control of Legionella bacteria in water systems." The document provides practical advice on how to comply with the U.K. health and safety law regarding the control of Legionella bacteria.
