During 2021, Liquisens started a collaboration with Shell Catalysts & Technologies.
Liquisens had the opportunity to monitor an industrial cooling tower at a Shell Catalysts & Technologies manufacturing site, based on artificial intelligence (AI), to optimize legionella prevention. The cooling tower was equipped with several sensors for continuously online monitoring and proved the legionella risk was under control. Based on the collected process data and periodic water analyses, a motivated advice was formulated to optimize the biocide consumption and flushing process.
The dressing room showers were also assessed using AI. Liquisens advised some technical adjustments to the sanitary installation, which increased reliability. Microbiological analysis proved minimal number of traces Legionella pneumophila were further reduced.
