  • BioSense a Biofilm Monitor and Controller

    Abstract Biofilms (slime) can form on virtually every nonshedding surface, in a nonsterile aqueous environment i.e. anywhere where a water source is present; such as cooling/heating systems, swimming areas and in drinking water purification. These Biofilms can cause a myriad of problems including; harbouring harmful bacteria such as Legionella, inducing corrosion, and reducing ...

  • Microbial control reduces sulfide

    The article is about sewage odour control using a totally NEW technology known as Microbial Control. Microbial control treats the cause of sewage odour, corrosion and methane gas production in sewers by removing the biofilm / sediment (slimes) complexes where sewage odour and methane gas are produced. Without sewage odour you cannot have sewage infrastructure corrosion from sulfuric acid. As ...

  • Extended CSO control storage: what could possibly go wrong?

    The Thames Tideway Tunnel (TTT), is one of the main components of the London Tideway Improvements Programme, designed to capture combined sewer overflows (CSOs) which currently discharge untreated combined sewage into the tidal river Thames. CSO discharges would be stored in the tunnel until there is capacity at Beckton sewage treatment works (STW), to accept, for treatment, pumped sewage from ...

  • Biofilm control strategies in industrial processing waters

    Bacterial biofilms cause a number of serious problems for industrial fluid processing operations. Mechanical blockages, impedance of heat transfer processes and microbially induced corrosion result in billions of dollars of losses each year. In engineered systems, such as cooling water systems, food processing, and other industrial applications possible risk to public health and product spoilage ...

  • Organic matter removal from saline agricultural drainage wastewater using a moving bed biofilm reactor

    We investigated the effect of salinity on the removal of organics and ammonium from agricultural drainage wastewater (ADW) using moving bed biofilm reactors (MBBRs). Under the typical salinity level of ADW (total dissolved solids (TDS) concentration up to 2.5 g·L−1), microorganisms were acclimated for 40 days on plastic carriers and a stable slime layer of attached biofilm was formed. Next, ...

  • Cold Storage Facilities IL USA - Project Case Study

    Overview Cold storage facilities show common operational concerns. Keeping product cold in a reliable and cost effective manner is central to business operations. Their ability to keep and store product at constant low temperatures is their business. In this industry, a facility’s refrigeration system can be the costliest culprit of a high utility ...

  • Shining a light on sulphate reducing bacteria - Case Study

    Chemical free UV disinfection for both seawater and produced water re-injection is a highly effective method to prevent SRB growth. Paul Hennessey, Oil & Gas Business Manager at atg UV Technology discusses with Process and Control the benefits of UV disinfection for both seawater and produced water for re-injection. As ...
