Bio Probes

Bio-probe:

Bio-probe is used to collect samples of bacteria in gas and oil producing systems. The bacterial population on a system's metal surface is more relevant to corrosion than the bacterial population in the system's fluids. This is because only surface or sessile bacteria cause corrosion. Thus a corrosion control program is ineffective unless it kills those bacteria which have formed attached biomasses. The same bacteria which cause problems in gas pipelines, tanks, vessels, oil wells and water handling systems attach to the bio-probe's sample element. And since the bio-probe is designed for high pressure access systems, common throughout the oil field, it becomes a convenient and economical way for sampling corrosion-causing biological activity.

 

 Bio-Film (Mesh) Coupons: 

Mesh bio film coupons are used for quantification or identification of microorganisms. Constructed from a stainless steel mesh, the bio film coupon provides an ideal surface for the growth of bio-film while resisting corrosion.
