Bug Check Bacteria and Mold Tests are Recommended for Use in Various Industries
Our Bacteria Test Kits are used in E-coating, Metalworking, Oil & Gas, Coatings/Paints, Diesel Fuel Storage, Water Treatments, Adhesives, Ink and many others.
E-coating system’s extensive use of water makes the process especially susceptible to microbial growth.
The water used in the e-coat process, (pre-painting and post-) creates a haven for bacteria to grow. Excess microbial growth can devastate the quality inherent in a well-run e-coat system.
Monitoring the microbial levels in your e-coat system to find out what you have or more importantly and hopefully what you don’t have is simple and easy with the bacteria test kit – Bug Check BF.
Bug Check BF dip-slides are easy-to-use and the most economical method of testing for bacteria on the factory floor. The test is intuitive, no user training is required, all require supplies are included, and no additional costly devices are required.
All vendors of e-coating paint encourage bacteria testing.

Metalworking fluids and machine coolants make a perfect home for bacteria.
All that water, your lubricants (the food), and a little warmth, make an ideal nurturing environment for bacteria and mold growth.
Typically the first clue is foul odor. Occasionally bacteria can cause unexplained rusting of parts or even a skin rash on a worker.
When you have multiple sumps, typically 2 out of 20 will be bad actors (high odor) with about 4 additional sumps in need of treatment.
The upside of monitoring fluid is an increase in the fluid’s life by up to three fold or even more vs. unmanaged fluids. Haul-off fees can be drastically reduced as well the worries and concerns connected with disposal of spent fluids. These cost savings can be substantial, especially for the small effort required.
Do the simple steps first:
Keep it simple and save some money.
3 Vital Signs of good health in your metalworking fluids:
(Similar to the three vital signs in the human body: heart rate, temperature, blood pressure)
Vital Indicator General Guidelines
Suspended solids % 2% - 10% (target 5%)
Microbial counts bacteria 105/ml; fungi 103/ml
pH level 8.5 to 9.5

Oil & Gas Industry
Bacteria cause Corrosion in the oil and gas industry.
Microbes “bugs” in the Oil and Gas Industry are the cause of microbial fouling of fracking fluids and of oil and gas wells, causing corrosion.This corrosion is often linked to the Sulfate Reducing Bacteria (SRB). The Bug Check SRB test kit is designed for on-site use and makes it easy to determine the extent of Sulfate reducing bacteria contamination. For use on- and off-shore.

Bacteria in the Oil Field
Uncontrolled microbial contamination in hydrocarbon-based fluids such as fuel, diesel fuel, hydraulic fluids causes significant operational problems such as corrosion, filter plugging and sludge formation. Bug Check FC is specifically designed for determining bacterial and fungal contamination levels in distillate fuels and similar low water content fluids.
