Italian to English: Biofilm formation on brass coupons exposed to a cooling system of an oil refinery - MAN Almeida and FP de Franca - Journal of Industrial Microbiology & Biotechnology (1998) 20, 39–44 General field: Science Detailed field: Chemistry; Chem Sci/Eng
Source text - Italian Biodeterioration of metal surfaces is usually accompanied
by the formation of a biofilm. According to Sifdlarek et al., biofilms are composed of a mixed consortium of bacteria,
fungi and a small number of algae, associated with
extracellular anionic polymers, in general related to
microbially induced corrosion (MIC). The thickness of the
biofilms and the complexity of the bacterial populations in
a biofilm create an aeration gradient throughout the various
layers of its structure; in this way, hypothetically, adequate
conditions are established for the development of anaerobic
microorganisms, including sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB). Different types of biofilm can be formed depending
on the flow rate and water chemistry in a system, which in
turn affect the rate of microbial corrosion and probably the
mechanism(s) involved in this process.

biofilm, e la complessità delle popolazioni batteriche in
un biofilm, crea un gradiente di aerazione attraverso i vari
strati della sua struttura; in questo modo, sono ipoteticamente stabilite le adeguate condizioni per lo sviluppo di microrganismi anaerobici, tra cui i batteri solfato-riduttori (SRB). Diversi tipi di biofilm possono essere formati a seconda
della portata fluidodinamica e della composizione chimica dell'acqua di un sistema, che a loro volta interessano il tasso di bio-corrosione e, probabilmente, il meccanismo(i) coinvolto in questo processo.

Years of translation experience: 5. Registered at ProZ.com: Dec 2015.
I'm Francesca de Tora. I graduated cum laude in Industrial Chemistry.
I worked as a Research Fellow from March 2013 to October 2015 at the Water Research Institute of the National Research Council (IRSA-CNR) in Rome.
During my work experience, many data were product, which allowed me to write several scientific papers.
I also translated several scientific papers and documents from Italin into English and from English into Italian. Furthermore, I proofreaded thesis and papers for student and colleagues.
You can go through my Curriculum Vitae et Studiorum for more information about mine.
I moved to South of England in October. Now I’m living in Royal Tunbridge Wells (Kent, UK) and I'm looking for an home based job.
I appreciate your time and consideration.
Please, contact me, if you have any proposal.
