Factors affecting biofilm development, specifically the materials of the pipe, were investigated. Two laboratory scale bioreactor systems were constructed to study biofilm formations: a pipe loop bioreactor with continuous flow at 10.1 liters per minute (LPM), and a tank bioreactor under stagnant conditions with a minimal flow of 0.0095 LPM.
