Abstract
The paper describes an advanced approach in the analysis and control of corrosion resulting from the activities of sulphate reducing bacteria as well as the reacting species in the development of the biofilm. An anaerobic Cultured medium was prepared and the pH read on a scale was 7.4 and medium after incubation was dispensed into five anaerobic experimental pipe and the respective biocides (formaldehyde, polyamine, diamine, biguanide and cow urine) at different concentration ranging from 5 mg/l to 580 mg/l . Statistical procedures were also used to determine the correlation coefficient, coefficient of determination and polynomial equation generated on the basis of related information. The activities of the sulphate reducing bacteria results in the loss of weight of the coupons inserted and was found to be less in the experimental pipe with cow urine treatment.
