A chemical that is toxic to microorganisms. Biocides are often used to eliminate bacteria and other single-cell organisms from water. Without the usage of biocides, microbial growth can become unmanageable and produce severe health concerns. These health-related hazards can range from occurrences of corrosion, limitations of water flow, and failures of chemical inhibitors.

Bacteria is the most common form of microbiological growth that results in areas free of biocides and has compromising effects on water treatment systems. For this reason, it is imperative to make sure that the amounts of microbial organisms are manageable in these systems that include drinking water, process waters, recreational waters, and closed circuits.

Biocide dosages, along with continuous cleaning on start-ups will guarantee that the number of microbial growth is limited. This process will also avert the pollution of water treatment systems with biocide dosing being used either on a consistent basis or large portions used at the opportune time.

Health concerns, reduction in chemical inhibitors, biofilm development that results in flow restrictions and corrosion. The issues that arise from microbial growth, specifically bacteria, are highly troublesome in several areas of water purification. For that reason, it is necessary to guarantee the amount of microbes are maintained in a great scope of systems that include drinking water, cooling systems, process waters, closed circuits and recreational waters. The management of microorganisms growth is successfully done through making sure your systems are cleaned and kept up to par on a consistent basis, which will prevent pollution and the need for regular biocide dosing.
