The 42nd Ordinance on Evaporative Cooling Systems and Wet Separators (42nd BImSchV.) has been in force since August 2017. It contains numerous new obligations and specifications for the operators of cooling towers and wet separators. As a statutory regulation, it is not just a directive. It must be implemented and documented as a matter of urgency, otherwise the operator could face fines.
One of these new obligations is the keeping of a manual or digital operating log.
It includes microbiological findings and operational data of the cooling system. In addition to regular chemical analyses, this includes the reference value of the general colony count, exceeding the test and measurement values, measures taken to restore cooling water hygiene, changes in the condition of the cooling system and the addition of biocides.
It must be available to the competent authority as well as to the competent expert at any time upon request.
