Ultrasonic BIOFILMFREE© eliminates biofilm permanently without chemicals. A sustainable alternative for standard chemical disinfection.
Disinfectants are mostly tested against planktonic (free) bacteria, although 99% of bacteria naturally exist in a biofilm!
Especially Gram-Negative bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Legionella, Escherichia coli, Viruses and Fungi.
Ultrasonic BIOFILMFREE© is also efficient in the case of resistant biofilm.
> BIOFILM is difficult to remove completely with chemicals because micro-organisms are packed closely and form a barrier against disinfection
> BIOFILM in filter membranes can block pores (flux)
> BIOFILM related bacteria can cause corrosion
> BIOFILM causes diseases in drinking water
very strong (HS technology) ultrasonic soundwaves above 25 KHz,
produced by a transducer (a high power piezoelectric tweeter speaker),
and controlled by a sophisticated driver unit with intelligent software, brings the material we need to treat into resonance:
- kills the single cell organisms and the biofilm
- the single cell organisms burst due to the strong high frequencies
- free floating bacteria have difficulty to adhere to the surface
- kills the non-pathogenic iron or manganese bacteria who forms the red-brown or black-brown slime
- avoids chalk and rust in pipelines and tanks
Only the Ultrasonic BIOFILMFREE© devices produced by Harsonic® in Belgium use the patented HS technology. Beware: copied devices without this Harsonic HS technology doesn’t work well!
