Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) Monitoring Solutions
Identify and Mitigate
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.
Solve microbial issues on the spot. Being in control starts with having relevant information when you need it. LuminUltra’s microbial monitoring solutions can help you launch or augment a microbial control strategy.
Gain Insight and Fix Issues
Conventional microbiological tools used to identify MIC, souring, and biofouling are painfully slow and offer limited information. As a result, issues associated with microbial contamination go unnoticed until they become serious problems.
LuminUltra’s microbial monitoring solutions provide real-time feedback on microbiological content, enabling on-site decision making. Now you can address the problem and validate corrections before they escalate.
Oil and Gas - and More
While the most common occurrence of MIC is in oil and gas-associated transportation and storage systems, MIC is also relevant for the municipal sector and entities with water and wastewater systems. Even infrastructure in residential and commercial buildings such as sprinkler systems can be affected by MIC.
How Microbial Monitoring Helps
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 within a matter of hours – 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 in order to preemptively avoid biofilm formation and the serious problems that arise from it.
LuminUltra’s solutions give users the ability to rapidly characterize and mitigate threats. Follow-up tests involving specific culture methods can be performed to validate control mechanisms and guard against specific microbiological threats, such as sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB).
