Every industry we service has different microbiological needs, and all these industries will utilize a biocide for microbiological control. Thus, the most critical factor affecting biocide performance is the ability to control the microorganisms causing biodeterioration.
Each class of biocide molecule has a killing action, based on its chemistry, which is either quick or slow-acting and will work versus a broad or narrow spectrum of microorganisms. Each biocide will be more or less effective against specific microorganisms and in some cases will be ineffective at high dosages.
In order to approximate how a biocide will perform in the field, it is first necessary to run laboratory tests under conditions that
best approximate long-term exposure in conditions as close to actual as possible.
An effective test method will identify the appropriate biocide dose for a specific application to aid in the control of the microbial growth and degradation found in a system. The staff at Nashville Chemical has decades of technical expertise in the fields of microbiology and product chemistry. Most importantly we are skilled at applying this knowledge to meet your needs.
Whether it is helping with your new product development screening or developing innovative biocide treatment programs, you can count on Nashville Chemical for outstanding service, support and reliable results.
