Fundamental Principles of Cooling Towers
To support a timely public health response, we used real-time polymerase chain reaction PCR to identify Legionella DNA in environmental samples within hours of specimen collection. We detected L. An isolate from a power plant cooling tower sample was indistinguishable from a patient isolate by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, suggesting the cooling tower was the outbreak source. Onset occurs 2—10 days after exposure to Legionella , a genus of intracellular gram-negative bacteria found in water and soil. The majority of cases are diagnosed by urine antigen test UAT , a rapid test that is highly sensitive and highly specific for LP1 and is widely available in acute care settings. Identification of the environmental source relies on comparison of patient isolates and environmental isolates by molecular techniques. Culture of respiratory specimens is necessary to obtain patient isolates, but LD patients might not produce sputum, specimens are not routinely cultured on Legionella -specific media, and specimens are less likely to yield positive culture results if they are collected after a patient has begun antibiotic therapy.
Cooling Towers: Principles and Practice, Third Edition, aims to provide the reader with a better understanding of the theory and practice, so that installations are correctly designed and operated. As with all branches of engineering, new technology calls for a level of technical knowledge which becomes progressively higher; this new edition seeks to ensure that the principles and practice of cooling towers are set against a background of up-to-date technology. The book is organized into three sections. Section A on cooling tower practice covers topics such as the design and operation of cooling towers; types of cooling tower; cooling tower components and construction materials; practical aspects of tower selection; industrial applications; and water quality and treatment. Section B is devoted to cooling tower theory and calculations.
