Bridger Scientific specializes in the quantification of fouling which impedes heat transfer performance. Our flagship product, the DATS (Deposit Accumulation Testing System) was developed and evolves with this objective in mind. Biofilms and mineral scale accumulation on heat transfer surfaces cost industry millions of dollars annually in lost production and reduced energy efficiency. Various chemical, mechanical, operational, and non-traditional methods are applied in an attempt to control industrial fouling with varying levels of success. Numerous environmental regulations impose further constraints on the solutions that may be applied and their ultimate effectiveness. Our DATS, and the related equipment we manufacture and sell, are used to evaluate the effectiveness of various strategies so that the process can be economically optimized for your situation.
