    Details

    The 3M™ Rapid Sulfate Reducing Bacteria (SRB) Detection Pouch is a compact, easy test product designed to provide quantitative results in one or two days for water treatment and oil and gas applications. It is used to quickly detect harmful bacteria in water that can cause microbiologically-influenced corrosion (MIC) in critical assets and infrastructure.

    What are sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB)?
    Sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) are a class of anaerobic microorganisms that produce hydrogen sulfide and commonly thrive in water associated with oil and gas operations. The presence of SRBs is commonly associated with an increased risk of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). If SRB levels are not routinely monitored and kept in check, they can pose a serious corrosion threat to critical assets and infrastructure. At high levels, SRBs are able to sour a reservoir, requiring expensive remediation efforts.

    Fast, portable and reliable field monitoring
    A proactive and robust monitoring program can help stop these unseen threats before they have a chance to spread. Unlike cumbersome and time-consuming conventional SRB testing methods, the 3M™ Rapid SRB Detection Pouch makes it easy to get results fast. The product contains a specially formulated growth medium combined with oxygen scrubbing chemistry, creating an ideal environment for growing SRBs from a wide range of sample types. Designed for simplicity, a quantitative result can be obtained in one or two days without dilutions- one pouch provides one test result. The durable, thin-film pouch design weighs 3 grams per pouch, saving space in the field or lab, onshore, offshore, laboratory and field use.

    The 3M™ Rapid SRB Detection Pouch is easy to use: simply dispense a water sample into the pouch using a simple plastic disposable pipette, squeeze to wet the entire coated area, seal and incubate. After one to two days of incubation, observe the test for a positive result indicated by a black color. Accurate, quantitative results based on time are achieved using the easy-to-read interpretation guide included with every kit. Act faster and limit the potential for damage to your equipment, productivi
