Sulfate Reducing Bacteria Test Kit

Sulfate Reducing Bacteria Test Kit box of 25/pk.

Anaerobic sulfate reducing bacteria are ubiquitous in the environment. They are found in secondary oil recovery effluents, estuarine waters, deep wells, cooling waters, metalworking fluids, water-based hydraulic fluids, and petroleum based products that in some way become contaminated with water. During their growth they are responsible for fouling, objectionable hydrogen sulfide odors, corrosion of metals, and pitting of concrete. It is essential that these organisms be monitored and controlled to prevent damage caused by their metabolic activities.

SRB are tubes of culture media that is specifically formulated to promote the growth of anaerobic sulfate reducing bacteria. The medium contains reducing agents that maintain a low oxidation reduction potential and thus allows for maximal growth. When the organ- isms grow in this medium, sulfate is reduced to sulfide and a black precipitate of iron sulfide is formed. The degree of blackening through the medium is directly proportional to the amount of sulfate reducer growth.

SRB is designed to be used in areas where little or no formal laboratory facilities are available. Everything needed to peform 25 tests is enclosed including: 25 SRB tubes, 25 CO2 tablets, 25 identification labels, 25 applicators, one bottle mineral oil (15ml), one sample vial with cap, one 1ml dropper, one alligator clip, and one instruction sheet.
