Identify and mitigate MIC
Costing industries billions of dollars annually, microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) can cause serious equipment degradation and failure, process interruptions, safety hazards, and product quality issues.
Being in control starts with having relevant information when you need it. Launch or augment a microbial control strategy with LuminUltra’s microbial monitoring solutions.
Solve microbial issues on the spot
With real-time, accurate quantification of total bioburden, your team can pinpoint a problem area within a system, apply treatment, and quantify the efficacy of this treatment all within the same day – compared to days or weeks with traditional methods.
Microbiological threats are best addressed in their early stages of growth. By making LuminUltra part of your overall solution, biological growth can be minimized at all key points to pre-emptively avoid biofilm formation and the serious problems that arise from it. Routine microbial testing can mitigate infrastructure degradation, reduce chemical treatment costs and avoid severe economic and health and safety threats to industries.
A modern microbial toolkit
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.
Our solutions have proven able to handle robust industrial sample types including injection water, brine, produced water, pigging sludge, metalworking and drilling fluids, and biofilms.
