The ALVIM Biofilm Sensor allows for a real-time measurement of bacterial growth, and its possible decrease due to sanitation treatments.

The sensor can be easily connected to any water system (pipelines, tanks, etc.), and requires just one cable for data communication and power supply.

The sensor (composed by a sensitive element and an electronic board) is based on an innovative electrochemical technology, able to detect biofilm coverage since its very first phase.

Besides revealing and monitoring biofilm growth, ALVIM probe is sensitive to oxidizing substances (as many biocides are). This allows for a real-time monitoring of biocide application, providing additional information on the effectiveness of sanitation treatments.

AX03S3 Sensor: ATEX certified, this model is indicated for classified areas and applications where there is a risk of explosion (e.g. Oil&Gas)

AS11S3 Sensor: With hygienic connection to the process, flat surface in contact with the liquid and high resistance to chemical treatments, this model is indicated for applications where hygiene is critical.

A001S3 Sensor: ALVIM standard sensor, suitable for most industrial applications. Given its corrosion resistance, it is particularly indicated for seawater applications.

AS01S3: With hygienic connection to the process, flat surface in contact with the liquid and high resistance to chemical treatments, this model is indicated for applications where hygiene is critical.
