Chem-Aqua, Inc., a wholly owned water treatment subsidiary of NCH Corporation, is pleased to announce that Jerry Angelilli, Manager of Oxidative Technology for Chem- Aqua in Dallas, TX, coauthored an article that was published in Facilities Engineering Journal, a bimonthly magazine of the Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE), and was selected to conduct a virtual interactive seminar for AFE. The article ran as a feature on ways to prevent building-associated Legionnaires’ disease and the seminar focused on Legionella prevention in building water systems.
Mr. Angelilli’s article, “10 Ways to Prevent Building-Associated Legionnaires’ Disease,” was coauthored with Janet Stout, Ph.D., Director of Special Pathogens Laboratory, and ran in the September/October 2011 issue of Facilities Engineering Journal, which focused on safety, security and comfort in facilities. The article complemented the overall editorial theme by outlining a proactive approach to protect a facility and prevent a Legionnaires’ disease breakout. The article detailed 10 ways to save time and money, prevent litigation and illness, and maybe even save a life. The publication of this article is significant as Facilities Engineering Journal is the preferred source of technical information relevant to the field of facilities engineering. The journal reaches over 16,000 facilities engineering professionals.
Along with publishing a journal, AFE selects experienced representatives from the field to teach virtual classes. AFE scheduled Mr. Angelilli as a presenter and his session, Legionella Prevention in Building Water Systems, was held on Tuesday, November 1st. The course examined Legionella bacteria in building domestic and HVAC water systems and reviewed water treatment technologies available to control growth of the pathogen and minimize associated risks. It was a great success with excellent attendance. Presenting this AFE class is significant since the course serves as an educational resource for plant/facilities, engineering, operations and maintenance professionals. Furthermore, each course equates to 0.1 CEU or recertification credit for individuals currently holding AFE credentialing.
