Many unsuccessful measures (superheat-and-flush, copper/silver ionization, ultraviolet light, and hyper-chlorination) are directed at water distribution systems to try and reduce the risk of hospital-acquired Legionnaires’ disease.
Only Oxine ® provides immediate and long-term disinfection.
Bio-Cide International Inc. developed the system in response to customer needs for non-electric on-line generation/activation of Oxine ® .
The unit was designed to be easily adjusted from very low concentrations, for applications such as water treatment, to very high for disinfection. In either case, it remains directly proportional to the volume of water entering the unit, regardless of variations in flow or pressure, which may occur in the water supply line.
BioVex ® is a highly refined blend of oxy-chloro species containing purified sodium chlorite. When combined with it’s specially formulated activator BioVex has vast antimicrobial power with a NEUTRAL pH. Proven effective against MRSA,VRE,HIV,HCV as a broad-spectrum anti-microbial. This combined solution can then be used in spray bottles, mop buckets and many other application methods without the use of gloves, masks or other protective gear.
