Marine biofouling speeds up the corrosion process in structures and materials, causing accelerated operational failures and the premature loss of structures or equipment.
Sea water is used extensively on offshore platforms for a variety of applications. In many of these, it is vital that fouling by marine organisms be prevented.
Siemens Water Technologies offers the CHLOROPAC® system to help prevent biofouling in power plant cooling water systems.
In underground sewers or other wastewater collection systems, the development and concentration of hydrogen sulfide causes offensive odors and corrosion can often go undetected until significant damage or failure occurs.
