Sanitization & Biofilm Removal

Due to various regulatory & industry requirements, bacterial growth in critical environments must meet acceptable levels. Biofilm and bacterial growths are both an on-going issue in industries with high purity water systems. BCS Inc. provides the highest quality of sanitization services. After our passivation process is complete, BCS Inc. uses Hydrogen Peroxide & Peracetic Acid solution. Furthermore, BCS Inc. assists those challenged with biofilm issues or microbial influence corrosion.

BCS Inc. has developed chemical sanitization methods for the following types of equipment and systems:

  • Water For Injection Systems
  • Purified Water Loop’s
  • Process & Product Systems
  • Water Pre-treatment Piping
  • CIP Piping & Panels
  • Tanks & Vessels
  • Equipment Cleaning & Disinfection
  • Potable Water Line’s


“Recent studies have demonstrated that nearly all high purity piping systems will form biofilms with time. This has proven true even for fluorocarbon piping systems. This biofilm will intermittently shed microorganisms into the water and will contribute to particulate levels, bacteria levels and total organic carbon levels. These contaminants can adversely affect your product; your product yields, your lab results and the service run lengths of your DI water filters.

Normal maintenance of water distribution systems and RO membranes requires routine cleaning and disinfection to prevent bacterial growth. Microbial contaminants commonly found in feed water will decrease the operating efficiency of RO membranes, lower membrane flux and thereby increase the cost of producing high purity water. Fouling microorganisms may actually destroy some RO membranes by promoting decomposition of the membrane polymer. Bacterial growth acceleration, particularly during periods of shutdown, requires a micro biocidal agent to control growth and protect the water system.'”
