Health authorities have decided against identifying the building in Lidcombe with a contaminated water cooling system that may have caused the latest legionnaires’ disease outbreak, attracting criticism.

Amid the outbreak that affected five people in the past 2½ weeks, the Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) warned anyone who spent time in the Lidcombe CBD to be vigilant of symptoms such as fever, chills and a cough.


The Victorian health department is reviewing the regulations around cooling towers after a man in his 70s died from legionnaire’s disease in Melbourne’s north.

An elderly woman has also been diagnosed with the disease — the fourth case to be linked to the area around the Airport West and Gladstone Park shopping centres — and health officials warned new cases could still be identified.

All of the patients, who are in their 60s and 70s, are being treated in hospital.

We’re very pleased to say that Coolclean has expanded beyond Melbourne. We now have plant and equipment in Sydney, Adelaide and Perth – offering cooling tower performance cleaning/inspections.

We’re doing a regular service run at this stage in each of the capital cities.

Director Darren Driscoll explains Coolclean’s service offering: “We are not doing basic routine cleans (basin flushes), as the water treatment reps or site personnel can do that.” Coolclean’s performance-based cleaning/inspection service differs being based on:

– Reducing Legionella risk caused by faulty components
– Reducing water loss and usage
– Reducing chemical loss and usage
– Eliminating surface corrosion on steel cooling tower basins and walls (our RepelCoat system)
– Reducing power usage, saving money
– Protecting the environment from chemical damage via drift loss and waste water loss

We’re now seeing some strong interest for our services in these cities from water treatment companies, FMs and contractors.

To reduce Legionella risk, critical cooling tower components must be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis. Routine cleans are just not good enough.

Find out how to reduce your Legionella risk and possibly save money at the same time.

We’re delighted to announce that after 30 years in the industry, Coolclean has grown to a point where we’ve decided to separate our repair services from our cleaning services.

The new company, called FlowMatrix, was launched at the ARBS event in Sydney this month.

FlowMatrix will be headed up by Jason Christensen, who for the last 6 months has been driving Coolclean’s expansion. Jason is well known in the industry for his comprehensive cooling tower knowledge, a solution based ‘can do’ attitude, his strong quality ethic and excellent customer service.

The focus of FlowMatrix on cooling tower repairs will enable us to combine our unrivaled cooling tower expertise, with quality workmanship and a fast response as needed.

For future repair work, we will now be issuing quotations and invoices through FlowMatrix.

Coolclean will continue to offer quality hygiene solutions for cooling towers and HVAC units, with competitively priced contract-based cleaning services, and one-off cleaning and performance services.

The Coolclean website will be updated in the near future to reflect these changes. View the new FlowMatrix website here.

We’re on-site in Melbourne CBD today. The team have removed a steel BAC cooling tower, and replaced it with the latest fibreglass cooling tower (8 x 10′ Australian-made). “The guys are doing a great job, nearing completion now,” says Coolclean’s General Manager Jason Christensen.

These drift eliminators were fitted to a 5 year old cooling tower in Adelaide. Coolclean was recently asked to carry out a Performance Clean on this unit.

“The tower had been on a maintenance agreement since installation, but the state of the unit was, to say the least, disgusting,” says Coolclean’s Darren Driscoll.

Pictured are the blocked drift eliminators.

  • High Legionella Risk: Yes
  • Cooling Performance Compromised: Yes
  • Operating Water Temperatures Up: Yes
  • Fan Needed to Run Continuously: Yes

Higher water temperatures lead to higher corrosion rates, higher chemical use, excessive water loss and strain on the chiller/compressor.

“There is no excuse for drift eliminators to become this dirty and scaled,” says Darren. “Routine cooling tower cleaning and disinfection must include the cleaning of all components.”

Action: We have removed the drift eliminators and cleaned them to remove the scale and dirt.

Legionella risk mitigation practices are essential. Drift eliminators are extremely important in the attempt to control Legionnaires’ disease as they restrict water droplets from leaving the cooling tower via the force of the fan.

Have you checked your drift eliminators? Contact Coolclean if you need assistance.

“The Legoinnaires’ outbreak on Friday indicates that something has gone wrong inside a cooling tower,” says Coolclean Managing Director, Darren Driscoll.

“If water treatment failed, so have mechanical components such as drift eliminators. In regard to cooling tower maintenance, we have to focus on secondary protection (mechanical components) as well as primary protection (water treatment). People should not get sick. Something is wrong. Get your drift eliminators checked,” he says.

PEOPLE who visited the CBD’s southeast this year and experiencing flu-like symptoms are being urged to seek medical help, as an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease is being investigated. Three cases of the respiratory infection have been reported to the Department of Health, which has ordered the testing and cleaning of airconditioner cooling towers in the suspect affected pocket of the city. The men, aged between 52 and 74 years, all worked or visited the city in the days before they became unwell around February 6 to 14 2018. MORE: http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/legionnaires-disease-outbreak-in-melbourne-cbds-southeast/news-story/12d3530b5124328d0fb3bceb2d4fa402
