Sanosil – An Effective, Safe and Environmentally Friendly Biocide
What is Sanosil?
Comfort Services Group is constantly on the look out for new, better products when it comes to water treatment. New scientific evidence is constantly being gained and new products and methods are being developed to help us fight the small, yet most dangerous enemies. An intensive research in this highly competitive market has been in progress for a considerable amount of time. Every day, at work and in our homes, we are exposed to countless microorganisms that can affect our own health. The biggest challenge is to find a disinfectant that is effective, but in the same time safe and ecological. Sanosil disinfectant combines all of these.
Sanosil is an eco-friendly, multi-component oxidizing biocide scientifically formulated using a stable combination of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and silver (Ag) ions to create a highly effective sanitising solution.
Areas of Application
The combination between the hydrogen peroxide and silver is so effective that it creates a biocide twenty times more powerful than that of hydrogen peroxide alone. This simple, yet very effective water disinfectant can be used for biological control virtually in any application, whether for drinking water or within air-conditioning plants, cooling towers, swimming pools, in the hospitals and pharmaceutical industry, food and drinks industry and on livestock farms.
In simple terms, this product is widely used for sterilization of domestic services but has the benefit that it can be left in the system and drunk safely as when it breaks down it turns into hydrogen (water) and oxygen.
Sanosil disinfectant is effective against all kinds of bacteria, viruses, yeasts, moulds and spore formers. It is also very effective against Legionella pneumophila, the cause of Legionnaires’ disease. Historically, hot and cold water systems were the most common culprit for outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease, with more cases being caused each year by hot and cold water systems than cooling towers. Thanks to better maintenance and the stricter treatment regimes laid out in the HSE’s Approved Code of Practice L8, we have seen fewer Legionella outbreaks caused by hot and cold water systems in recent years.
Sanosil represents a new generation of clean, safe, eco- friendly biocides for the effective control of micro-pathogens including Legionella, E.Coli, Pseudomonas, Influenza A and B, Campylobacter, Salmonella, MRSA, VRE and other bacterial, viral and fungal infections, on both hard surfaces and in water systems.
