Microbially Induced Corrosion in the Mineral Processing Industry
A method for real time determination of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) rate provoked by bacteria Thiobacillus Ferrooxidans was developed and applied on carbon steel samples. It is based on biological oxygen demand (BOD) determination of solutions contained Thiobacillus Ferrooxidans performed by the application of a Clark type oxygen probe in especially designed measuring cell.
