Bio Probes


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.

BIoGEORGETM system  is a simple, rugged, dependable system for real-time monitoring of:

  • Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC)
  • Biofouling of heat exchangers
  • Biocide effectiveness
  • Optimization of treatments: Selection, Timing, Concentrations

The BIoGEORGE system was developed to provide online and real-time indications of biofilm activity on typical metallic surfaces. The probe is designed and operated so that microorganisms in the environment are encouraged to settle on probe surfaces well before they settle on heat exchanger tubes or piping.
Probe status is indicated on the integrated electronics enclosure by an LED display (red light/green light).
By closely tracking biofilm activity on the probe, the operator is alerted to the need to treat the system, to assess the effectiveness of a treatment, to schedule maintenance activities, or to optimize chemical treatments.

 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.
