Chloromethyl-methylisothiazolone (CMIT/MIT) biocide is used for microbial control in industrial water treatment applications. It is effective versus various types of bacteria, algae and fungi. This paper will provide results of planktonic and biofilm efficacy studies with CMIT/MIT biocide versus various strains of Desulfovibrio.
Observations and guidelines to conduct hydrostatic pressure tests of pipelines and/or process equipment. Concerns for hydrostatic pressure tests relate to the water itself, including any suspended solids, dissolved oxygen, or any Sulfate Reducing Bacteria (SRB) or Acid Producing Bacteria (APB) present in the test water.
