What is Oxyl-Pro?
OXYL-PRO is a non-toxic disinfectant for use in the water treatment industry. It is a powerful, all purpose broad spectrum disinfectant and decontamination agent which has an excellent ecological profile, its waste products being oxygen and water. All the components in Oxyl-Pro are food safe.
An independent evaluation by WRC UK has been carried out for the product’s efficacy and effectiveness against legionella and biofilms in water systems inside buildings. The WRC endorsement letter is available on request. Oxyl-Pro is also listed as an approved drinking water product by Norwegian Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet).
OXYL-PRO is an advanced product formulation and provides a safer alternative to silver peroxide as it does not contain any silver or other heavy metals. It is based on food grade hydrogen peroxide with a unique stabilising and activating agent. All ingredients in the stabiliser are listed as food additives using the purest grades available. Because of its unique and complex formulation, OXYL-PRO is a stable and fast acting product. It provides even distribution in water systems which results in fast destruction of micro-organisms and biofilm.
The product has efficacy against Legionella, pseudomonas, fungi and bacteria. Test results are available on request.
Oxyl-Pro can be used as a fast or slow disinfection. If time permits, the slow disinfection route can result in significant cost savings for the user. The product can be used on a continuous basis in water systems at low dose rates to control biofilm. Only a small residual is required at the outlets.
From 1st October 2015 DWI no longer approve products for use in Section A4, Disinfestation, Disinfection or Cleaning Agents of Waterworks 12 Apparatus and Distribution Systems, where the product is intended for offline use. Oxyl-Pro can be used for this purpose, providing the product residual is flushed from the system prior to reconnection to mains water.
