BIoGEORGE™ BG4

Biofilm Growth Detector



View data sheet (PDF)


Metal Samples in cooperation with Structural Integrity Associates, Inc., offers the BIoGEORGETM BG4 biofilm growth detection system - a modern approach to monitor the effectiveness of a biocide treatment program to ensure sufficient application of biocide for system cleanliness.
  • Mitigate MIC through real time biofilm monitoring

  • Reduce thermal fouling by controlling biofilms

  • Optimize biocide treatment programs

 


The BIoGEORGE BG4 Biofilm Growth Detector system, originally developed for and proven in power plant cooling water systems, monitors biofilm activity on the surface of a stainless steel or titanium probe continuously and in real time. Biofilm formation occurs more rapidly on the probe than on system piping or heat exchanger tubes. As a result, maintaining the probe in a clean condition assures that the pipe work, heat exchangers or other system surfaces are clean. The BIoGEORGE BG4 system consists of a probe, its integrated electronics, interconnecting cable, display software, a user manual, and product support.

Probe Specifications

 
Electrodes Type 316L stainless steel for fresh water environments; Ti, Gr. 2 for saline environments

Attachment

Standard, threaded pipe plug (stainless steel or PVC; 1” or 2” NPT body)
   
Specialized probe configurations, such as flow-through or flush mounted probes, probes on a retrievable body or other custom designs available.
   
Mounting Electrode stack projects into the system to be monitored. Coupon racks, dedicated threaded ports in heat exchangers, other access points acceptable.
Mounting in any position is acceptable.
   
Limiting Pressure 3000 psig for stainless steel probe bodies; 300 psig for PVC bodies
   
Recommended Operating Temperature PVC Body 50°-120°F (10°-49°C)
Stainless Steel Body 50°-130°F (10 -54°C)
   
Suitable for outdoor installations.
Standard 50’ data cable with 6-pin connection linking the BIoGEORGE probe sensor to the BG4 controller.
   
   

Environments

 
All aqueous environments  
  • High purity/controlled purity water
  • Fresh waters (hard and soft)
  • Brackish waters
  • Seawater
  • Most brines
  • Contaminants such as oil can be accommodated
   
Fluid velocity past the probe should be typical of that of metal surfaces in the system; no special adjustments for flow are required (e.g., BG4 can monitor normally stagnant or intermittently flowing systems).

Probe must be continuously wetted

Compatible with water treatment chemicals including biocides, deposit control agents, corrosion inhibitors, and most on-line cleaning solutions.
   
   

Communications

 
BGConnect Utility software compatible with Microsoft Windows 7, 8 and 10 for local (wired) and network connections.

Bluetooth connectivity with Phone/Tablet App for iOS and Android operating systems
