Special Analysis

MIC & Bacteria Evaluations are used to determine the sources of hydrogen sulfide, microbial contamination, suspended solids, and to determine best control methods. Aerobic and anaerobic bacteria populations can result in corrosion and/or plugging. Planktonic bacteria float in the water to live. Sessile bacteria are attached to surfaces. Bacteria populations will increase the suspended solids in a water system. Sessile bacteria will set-up concentration cells on metal surfaces and under deposits that initiate and accelerate corrosion processes. Corrosion induced or influenced by bacteria is termed MIC (microbiologically influenced/or induced corrosion).

Scale Analyses are used to identify the type of scale present and determine the best scale removal and prevention methods. Scale analysis showing scale components that are not consistent with water analysis often indicate incompatible fluids or that other problems exist.

Corrosion product analyses are used to identify and determine major corrosion forces.
