Model HCA200 bio-probe is used to collect samples of bacteria in gas and oil producing systems. The bacterial population on a systems metal surface is more relevant to corrosion than the bacterial population in the systems fluids. This is because only surface or sessile bacteria cause corrosion. Thus a corrosion control program is ineffective unless it kills those bacteria which have formed attached biomasses. The same bacteria which cause problems in gas pipelines, tanks, vessels, oil wells and water handling systems attach to the bio-probes sample element. And since the bio-probe is designed for high pressure access systems, common throughout the oil field, it becomes a convenient and economical way for sampling corrosion-causing biological activity.
