Almost ideal conditions for biofilm and biofouling formation in the pulp and paper industry: suitable temperature, aerobic and anaerobic conditions, suitable pH, availability of nutrients and water.
The problems in production caused by biofilms
1 Biofilms affect the productivity of the paper machine and the failure of taking any action leads to unplanned repairs.
2 Gas formation and odor: Odors are caused by the presence of volatile fatty acids (VFA), which accumulate in various places of equipment as a result of the metabolic activity of various kinds of facultative anaerobic bacteria.
3 Corrosion: Microorganisms and biofilms corrode surfaces and equipment.
4 Change in the properties of auxiliary materials and deterioration in the quality of the final product.
5 Toxic waste: Waste paper production – resulting sludge can pose a serious danger to the environment and humans.
6 In addition, microbial biofilms can be a source of pathogenic microorganisms (e.g. Legionella, etc.)
In practice / solution
Chemical substances used in industry are not able to destroy biofilms. As a result, the problem is not resolved. In addition, the substances used today, such as chlorine dioxide, pose a serious danger to production and human health. IDEPS is an exception because it solves the problem of the negative impact of biofilms and biofouling in the pulp and paper industry.
Minimizes the costs of biofouling of equipment troubleshooting;
Reduces the frequency of maintenance;
Prevents equipment failure;
Improves the quality of the final product;
Reduces the amount of faulty products;
Transfers the production waste to a safe state.
Ecology and safety
IDEPS Safe and non-toxic.
IDEPS does not pose a threat to the environment and humans.
IDEPS has the lowest toxicity with dermal contact and moderate toxicity when ingested.
IDEPS – is an innovative solution for the dissolution of biofilm. This is a new revolutionary substance which is superior to conventional treatments in terms of addressing the biofilm problem for food safety, improvement of healthcare and industrial processes
