Advantages of Using Halosil to Treat Drinking Water

  • Tasteless and colorless
  • No toxic disinfection by-products
  • Approved for use in drinking water, washing, cooking and food preparation in several European countries:
    • England (Water supply regulations 2000 No. 3184)
    • Wales (Water supply regulations 201 No. 3911)
    • Scotland (Water quality regulations 2001 ACT 1980, Part VI A)
    • France (TP5 Disinfectant pour eau de boisson)
    • Hungary (OTH 1579–5/2008)
    • Bulgaria (No. 06802–2/2003)
  • Over 200 tests endorse efficacy and safety (international tests)
  • Low–corrosivity – protection of pipeline network
  • Less volume required providing transportation, handling savings compared to sodium hypochloride
  • Safe alternative to chlorine gas

Halosil Reduces Water Treatment Costs

  • Halosil costs less to treat compared to chlorine bleach
  • Halosil is concentrated and requires approximately 1/15th the volume of bleach. This provides storage, handling and insurance savings.
  • Halosil has a shelf life of greater than one year (Halosil only loses 1% efficacy per month at 40° C vs. chlorine bleach which loses 80% or more efficacy per month.)
  • Halosil is not corrosive, which significantly decreases the cost to repair pipes and replace capital equipment.

Water Plants

  • Halosil is effective in long water pipes and/or prolonged holding times
  • Halosil does not alter odor or taste of the treated water

Water Chambers

  • Even when stored for extended periods the water retains its fresh taste
  • In hermetically sealed chambers, Halosil is sufficient to guarantee sterility for several months

Surface Treatment of Pipes & Reservoirs

  • Halosil is effective at removing calcareous, ocherous and sinter deposits on the walls and surfaces of drinking water tanks and reservoirs thereby eliminating growth conditions for algae, bacteria, fungi, etc., and preventing microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC).
  • Halosil is ideal for ongoing treatment and for disinfecting when commissioning a reservoir that has been standing idle for long periods
