The paper manufacturing process is an excellent condition for the growth of microorganisms due to temperature and the presence of some nutrients. Microorganisms can cause lots of operational problems. They could generate microbiologically induced corrosion, foul smell, and slime deposits, thereby negatively affect machine runnability and end-product quality. Some of these microorganisms can get into machine parts and lead to downtime, and some can cause a health risk for the workers.
GIG Chemie offers a wide selection of broad-band & water-miscible biocides that inhibit microbial growth in the paper manufacturing process. They are non-oxidizing, non-reducing, no affinity to fibers, and biodegradable.
Our biocides can be used in all pH ranges. They are strong inhibitor against anaerobic microorganisms whose metabolic products can lead to corrosion and unpleasant odor, and they are specifically designed for an excellent spectrum of activity against slime formation, fungi, and algae.
GIG Chemie biocides intensely reduce microbiological activity without any adverse effects in the effluent treatment plant (ETP) operations. Also, they reduce the total bacteria population in the manufacturing system.
