Acid Producing and Sulphate Reducing Bacteria cause microbial corrosion of metals.

Acid Producing Bacteria (APB) Acid producing bacteria (APB) are a combination of variety of heterotrophic bacteria that have an ability to produce acid. Acid products are formed as a result of fermentation of organics under very reductive (oxygen-free) environments. The APB can cause a significant pH fall, from neutral to acidic conditions ranging from pH…
