Sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) can have very detrimental effects on gas and oil extraction technology. SRB is a group of specialized microorganisms that occur in aqueous environments in the absence of oxygen. The formed H2S in this process is the principal agent in the disastrous effects caused by SRB. It contaminates gas and stored oil, plugs injection wells, and promotes corrosion of iron and steel in the absence of oxygen (anaerobic corrosion).
Another principal mechanism by which SRB are involved in corrosion is their ability to depolarize iron surfaces by consumption of cathodically formed hydrogen. It also multiplies with high speed every 20 minutes. To eliminate the SRB problems, ULTRAAQUA UV can supply efficient standalone UV systems or fully integrated containerized packages, with all necessary equipment to include UV reactor, combined control cabinet, manifolds, valves, and pre-filter if applicable.
For various marine applications, ULTRAAQUA UV has supplied systems in high-grade steel such as Duplex, Super duplex, SMO254, and titanium as well as PP or PEHD plastics, known for their advanced corrosion resilience. ULTRAAQUA UV systems are of the highest possible quality due to the optimized design for operation in harsh environments and stringent manufacturing standards.
