Biodiesel Biocide for Bacterial Control


TECHNICAL SUPPORT Chemiphase International will offer onsite technical support during all stages of production. Technical support includes onsite testing and results.

BIO-CONTROL 41 is a biocide specifically designed to control microbial growth in biodiesel where storing and distributing are necessary. BIOCONTROL 41 is simple to add and is an excellent method of providing assurances of fuel stability and reduced corrosion issues. BIO-CONTROL 41 can be used on all types of biodiesel and is effective when dosing to fresh biodiesel, a batch which has a medium / high level of bacterial growth, or even when biodiesel tank has high levels of slime and bacterial growth and needs heavily decontaminating.

Microbial growth occurs in both conventional oil-based fuel and biofuels. Biodiesel blends have dramatically increased the severity of the problems caused by microbial growth. For the production of bacteria it needs oxygen, water and nutrients. No fuel is 100% free of water and if to much water exists then microbial growth will occur at a very high rate and can result in a variety of problems including blocked filters, injection fouling and corrosion. Bio-Control 41 is designed to correct this issue, through regular additive treatment or shock dosing contaminated fuel.

Microbial growth control Low-cost to add to fuel Easy to apply Environmentally friendly Improved storage capability Improved performance Effective on all types of biodiesel Can be used continuously or part of treatment regime Protection against blocked filters / fouled injectors Very low dilution rates Effective on the heaviest types of oil Improved fuel stability


Biodiesel Biocide for Bacterial Control

When To Use General - BIO-CONTROL 41 needs to be added between 5 deg C and 50 deg C and will need to be mixed thoroughly to ensure full activation of product. BIOCONTROL 41 will need a reasonable contact time for maximising product effectiveness. We recommend adding after the reaction stage, when biodiesel is cooling after it has been filtered and is being transferred to storage tank via high velocity pump to aid mixing. Medium / High Levels of Bacterial Growth Shock Dosing Treatment Method - We recommend draining the tank to a 1/4 full. Drain any excess water in tank. Remove any sludge and slime deposits on the sides of the tank and clean as best possible. Add the correct dilution rate of BIO-CONTROL 41 for the maximum capacity of the tank. Once BIO-CONTROL 41 has been added begin filling the tank with biodiesel as normal. Once tank has been filled, drain off any excess water deposits and leave tank to stand for at least 24 hours for its contact period. Once all completed, fuel is ready for use.


Biodiesel Antioxidant to control oxidation levels in biodiesel which can cause degradation and damage to tank storage.

Pour point additive designed for heavy oils like Palm Methyl Esters, Tallow Based Biodiesels, Heavy animal fats etc. How water Gets into fuel

Biodiesel cetane enhancing product which increases the cetane rating of biodiesel.

Biodiesel when manufactured is in-adequately dried during the production process. Free breathing area at the top of the storage tanks Transferring biodiesel from production to storage tank Delivering to customer tanks

Treatment Recommendations

Pour point additive designed for heavy oils like Rapeseed Methyl Esters, UCOs.

Rigorous removal of free water + good housekeeping methods Regular dosing of Bio-Control 41 to help control microbial growth Regular testing of biodiesel and records taken so you can monitor the bacterial levels and treat accordingly. Reduce free area in storage tanks for as long as possible
