By using special wire mesh catalysts, the selective oxidation of germs to biosurfactants takes place in the presence of small amounts of MOL®aktiv E30 (special hydrogen peroxide-containing solution). The biosurfactants formed in this way are able to dissolve existing biofilms. This takes place without affecting the surface tension of the water. At the same time, the formation of toxic endotoxins is avoided.
With this technology, the biosurfactants dissolve any biofilm that may already be present in the system and prevent new growth. This deprives bacteria – especially Legionella – of protective and living space. By removing the biofilms, microbiologically induced corrosion, as well as limescale and rust, are prevented. In addition, suitable corrosion inhibitors can act efficiently on the then clean material surfaces.
