Biofilm Monitoring Applications

  • Premium

    Reduce biofilm formation

    In many industrial or professional applications where water is being stored, biofilm may grow. The growth of biofilm can damage the installations and reduce efficiency of the circuit. A biofilm can grow certain substrates which can be found in water. When temperatures are high, for example in cooling towers, a matrix of different micro- organisms such as bacteria, fungi, algae can grow very rapidly causing the formation of a biofilm on certain surfaces submerge in water. During the formation of this biofilm, certain micro organisms starts producing extra cellular polymeric substances (EPS) which reinforce the biofilm structure.

    Cooling Tower, algae and biofilm control

    “Efficiently lowers algae, biofilm formation, bacterial counts and chemical consumption.” When temperatures are high, for example in cooling towers, a matrix of different microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, EPS and algae can grow very rapidly. The disadvantages of biofilm formation in cooling towers can be enormous. Therefore water used in cooling towers needs frequent treatment and chemical shocks to keep levels of micro-organisms to a minimum.

  • Microbial testing in cooling water system industry

    Superior reliability for superior control! Biocide treatments are essential to control microbiological growth in cooling systems. If not properly managed, the warm environments of cooling systems are ideal for the growth of microorganisms. As microorganism communities grow in cooling systems, they can attach to pipe walls and form biofilms. These biofilms pose serious risks, from human health risks like Legionnaire`s disease to reduced operating efficiency and eventually to equipment failure via microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC).

  • Microbial testing for liquid fuel handling sector

    On-the-spot measurement of total microorganisms! fuel1Microbial growth in liquid hydrocarbon fuels and lubricants presents a major problem. Storage tanks, delivery systems, and filters can become fouled through microbial proliferation and metabolic activity, which results in a myriad of problems, including reduced product quality, storage system corrosion, and filter plugging. The best solution to this problem is early detection and treatment.

  • Cooling & Drinkingwater: ATP monitoring of biomass growth in waters

    Monitoring Biomass in (Cooling Tower) Waters through ATP monitoring

    The TOXcontrol can be used for ATP monitoring. Currently our company is doing research for further developments for this application on the TOXcontrol.

    Monitoring the microbial population of cooling towers is necessary in order to maintain the proper operation of the system. Conventional methods for monitoring microbial populations work by culturing microorganisms, a time-consuming procedure that requires days or even weeks of incubation before the results are known. Biofouling can be well-advanced before treatment begins. In addition, it is believed that this technique does not detect the full range of microbial life present in cooling systems.

  • Microbial testing for chemical products industry

    On-the-spot measurement for microbial risk management! Microbial growth in industrial chemicals can present a major problem.· If left unchecked, microbial contamination in raw materials and intermediate products can compromise manufacturing process performance and equipment integrity.· These same sources can also impact final product quality, which if not properly maintained can spoil products while sitting on the shelf.· The best solution is early, accurate detection and proactive treatment.
