Identify corrosion risks in industrial processes
Protect your industrial assets from microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) by quickly understanding the microbes at play. LuminUltra empowers you to effortlessly collect and analyze samples from your operations for organisms that cause MIC, such as SRBs, IRBs and corrosive methanogens (micH). Get the insights you need to optimize maintenance, select the right treatments, and ensure the longevity of your systems.
Understand your risk with a complete testing portfolio
Managing MIC means understanding the microbial community within your system. LuminUltra’s solutions allow you to identify and quantify potential MIC threats and optimize biocide programs. From daily monitoring that quantifies bio-burden in real-time, to targeted identification of MIC-causing microbes, we can help you prevent system failures and extend the life of your infrastructure.
Trust a company with decades of experience in oil & gas, marine transportation and manufacturing. Our solutions can be used together as a complete toolkit to address the impacts of microbiology.
Routine testing with 2nd Generation ATP®
Understand the total active bioburden in a sample with a simple, fast, in-field test that gives quantifiable results and insight into the microbial growth of a system. Designed for routine monitoring, our 2nd Generation ATP® technology delivers accurate results within 5 minutes (in pg ATP/ unit of measurement).
