1.8 VDI Guideline 2047-2 – Hygienically sound operation of evaporative cooling systems

In January 2015, the new VDI Guideline 2047-2 titled „Securing the hygienically sound operation of evaporative cooling systems (VDI Cooling Tower Code of Practice)“ was published. The new regulation is the result of various legionella incidents in the past that had caused many infectious diseases and several deaths. Again and again, wet cooling towers were deemed to be the cause of such incidents as  little drops were carried along with the exhaust air and thus, legionellae were released to the surroundings.
