BIOFILM SUPPRESSION

THE PROBLEM

Microbial biofilms present a significant challenge to plant and can result in bio-clogging and bio-fouling issues.

Which can lead to blockages and impaired equipment.

The protective coating of the biofilm allows increased resistance to biocides and prolonged persistence of pathogens such as legionella.

Biofilm can act as reservoirs for re-inoculation of a system and a hotbed for the generation of biocide resistant bacteria.
