Water disinfection and general disinfection
SANIFLUID®, a very powerful HOCl based disinfectant. This disinfectant can be used fo water disinfection, for human and animal consumption as well as for many other applications. Namely: disinfection of food producing facilities, surface disinfection in hospitals and high transit locations, equipment sterilization, medical instrument sterilization, disinfection of meat, fish, and vegetables, swimming pool disinfection, waster water disinfection.
SANIFLUID® eliminates the majority of known pathogens, such as E. coli, Legionella, Bacillus Difficilis, Listeria, and is highly effective against antibiotic resistant strains. Hence it is ideal for food processing applications and hospital environments.

WHY CHOOSE SANIFLUID®?
SANIFLUID® is probably the safest and most effective chlorine based disinfectant, as it is an hypochlorous acid (HOCl) rich solution, and HOCl is clearly the superior form of chlorine. That is confirmed by several scientific institutions. As an example, we quote ANSES (French national sanitary safety agency, for food, environment and labor): “l’acide hypochloreux (HOCl) est l’espèce prépondérante por des valeurs de pH entre 4 et 7.5 et représente la forme la plus efficace pour la désinfection.” document 2014-SA-0053 published May 5, 2015. Our translation: Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is the prevailing type for pH values between 4 and 7.5 and is the most efficient form for disinfection.
Free available chlorine (FAC) is chlorine dissolved in water. Depending on the pH, there are different types of chlorine in the water. At a pH of 0 we have exclusively chlorine gas (Cl2). The percentage of chlorine gas drops with rising pH, and at the same time the level of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) rises. Starting at pH 6 the percentage of OCl- (hypochlorite) rises and HOCl drops. Above pH 9 we have only hypochlorite.
It is important to stress that the lipid structure (cell wall) of the cell membrane is not immune against non polar solutions and is penetrated to a large extent by HOCl. OCl- is much less effective as it is polar. Consequently, the disinfection power of hypochlorite (OCl-) is only approx. 1% that of hypochlorous acid (HOCl).
The reaction of chlorine with nitrogen rich combinations results in harmful byproducts such as chloramines, also called combined chlorines. Chlorine also reacts with organic compounds such as methane, which then result in halogenmethanes. Due to the small doses of SANIFLUID® that are required to disinfect, we can drastically reduce the contents of chloramines and halogenmethanes in the water.
