EndoSan for Water Treatment and Legionella Control
EndoSan is a highly effective water treatment solution which is a truly credible alternative to traditional chlorine disinfection methods. It will physically remove biofilms whilst being non-toxic, non-corrosive and will maintain its efficacy at a wide range of temperatures and pH values. Odourless, colourless and tasteless, EndoSan lends itself to many applications in the field of water treatment.
Although temperature control has been the UK’s longest-serving means of controlling the growth and proliferation of Legionella in hot and cold water systems, there are other factors, including major rises in energy costs that warrant the use of biocides. In 2000, the HSE’s new ‘L8’ guidelines took this into account, giving equal weight to both temperature regimes and biocides, such as chlorine dioxide, as control methods.
When the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) published HSG274 (Part 2), the most recent guidelines on the control of Legionella in hot and cold water systems, they for the first time recognised the use of silver hydrogen peroxide (SHP) as an alternative biocide to more traditional chlorinated water treatments.
EndoSan has many case studies from throughout the UK where zero CFU/ml have been shown post installation. With independently proven, unrivalled efficacy data for biofilm removal and legionella control, EndoSan is safe, environmentally acceptable and can be dosed in very low concentrations for a complete, cost effective solution. In addition to this, the constant dosing of EndoSan allows substantial energy savings and reduction in health risks by removing the requirement for thermal disinfection.
We offer a full range of dosing systems for use with EndoSan along with the specialist technical assistance to assess and design the most effective legionella control solution in the market.
… the most developed of the silver stabilised hydrogen peroxides now available has proved particularly effective against biofilms and biofouling in water systems. Independent testing shows it provides a very wide spectrum of biocidal activity against bacteria, viruses, spores, fungi, amoebae (such as amoeba acanthus which can act as host to Legionella bacteria) and algae.Dr T.
