grotamar® 82 acts fast and efficient against all types of microorganism. If a bio film in the tank has already formed, a mechanical cleaning is absolute necessary. Bio film formations are very persistent and protect the microbes extremely well against biocide attacks. Normal additives against microbes are not able to get through the thick slimy bio film to eliminate the hidden microbes in the gel. If bio films in tanks are not removed mechanically, they are excellent sources for a re-contamination. Remaining in the tank system would lead to infecting new fuel.
An in-depth mechanical treatment of the tank system including the pipelines is a crucial measurement and the first step to achieve a successful tank sanitation!
