Résumé : At geothermal plants, process failures often occur due to corrosion and scaling processes. Especially after heat extraction, sulfate reducing bacteria contribute to corrosion processes by producing reduced sulfur compounds. In biofilms containing scales such as iron sulfides, corrosion processes are enhanced. In a mobile bypass system located at the geothermal plant in Neubrandenburg (North German Basin), the influence of biofilm formation on corrosion and scaling was investigated. Short-term heat shocks were successfully tested in the bypass system in order to reduce biofilm formation and thus to diminish corrosion and scaling processes.
