Cocultivation of destructor microorganisms and their antagonists decreases the corrosion loss of carbon steel by 20 to 80%. It was found that a microorganism can either accelerate or inhibit corrosion, depending on the nutrient. The magnitude of the effect on corrosion depends on the ability of the microorganism to respond to changes in the nutrient medium(More)
A method for quantitative evaluation of the effects of biocides is presented. The method was tested in experiments with Pseudomonas fluorescens grown on various agar nutrient media. The effective concentrations of biocides that decreased the maximum specific rate of the colony biomass growth (μ"m) were called S (suppressing) concentrations, and(More)
A technology was designed for manufacturing a preparation based on Trichoderma viride Pers ex S.F. Gray that strongly suppresses the development of causative agents of certain plant diseases and displays a growth-stimulating activity. Cultivation of the strain in a liquid medium for 18–24 h produced up to 60 g dry biomass per liter nutrient medium. A(More)
Five synergistic combinations of biocides have been identified, of which kathon plus copper sulfate is the most efficient against Serratia marcescens. Depending on the ratio of the biocides, the active concentrations needed to maintain the synergistic effect can be decreased 4- to 20-fold. Combinations of biocides with salts promoting steel passivation(More)
Initial stages of corrosion of mild steel induced by Klebsiela rhinoscleromatis BO2 were studied in various media. The effect of the microorganism was detected 8–10 h after inoculation. The number of viable cells was virtually unchanged over one month in all media, but the corrosive activity of the strain decreased. The corrosive activity of microorganisms(More)
A biosorbent containing an association of oil-oxidizing bacteria as the main constituent was developed, in which Lessorb, a product of moss and wood thermal processing, was used as a carrier. Xeroprotectors preserving the cell viability and oil-oxidizing activity in the biosorbent on drying and after long-term storage were selected. The use of this(More)
Samples of soil, subsoil, electrolyte, corrosion products, and protective coating were taken after excavating pipelines. The depth of stress corrosion cracking of the pipe steel was mostly related to counts of sulfate-reducing and denitrifying bacteria. In certain types of soil, crack depth correlated with the number of acid-producing microorganisms and(More)
