Steritab releases Chlorine dioxide gas which is a stronger disinfectant than chlorine and chloramine. Ozone has great micro biocide effects, but limited residual disinfection capability.

Recent research in the United States and Canada demonstrates that chlorine dioxide destroys enteroviruses, E. coli. Amoebae and is effective against cryptosporidium cysts.

How to use it?

Put 1 tablet into
10 liters of water
Let it dissolve for
3 minutes
The solution is
ready to use
Contact time:
20 minutes

Steritab Chlorine dioxide stays in solution as ClO2 (no dissociation) and thus is able to permeate through bacterial cell membranes and destroy bacterial cells.

Its action on viruses involves adsorbing onto and penetrating the protein coato f the viral capsid and reacting with the viral RNA. As a result, the genetic capability of the virus is damaged. In comparison to chlorine, Steritab chlorine dioxide can be more effective as a disinfectant due to the fact that chlorine exists in the water as HOCl or OCl-. As result, bacterial cell walls are negatively charged and repel these compounds, leading to less penetration and absorption of the disinfectant into the membranes.

Steritab is a very safe and potent biocide. It is effective over a wide pH range in both hard and soft water and does not react with most other water treatment chemicals. Many of its uses are US and UK Government approved and highly recommended by many reserchers. Steritab can be used as a disinfectant, sanitizer, tuberculocide, virucide, fungicide, algaecide, slimicide and deodorizer.

It is also employed in health care industries to decontaminate rooms, pass-through, isolators and also as a sterilizer for product and component sterilization. More efficient than superheat-and-flush, copper/silver ionization, ultraviolet light, instantaneous heating systems and hyper-chlorination. Steritab is used for the disinfection of endoscopes. Also it is used as desinfectant for laundry. Steritab doesn’t need neutralizer after application. Its use is quicker than chlorine and more efficient. Steritab is a unique chemical more powerful oxidant than chlorine but without carcinogenic and corrosive byproducts. Steritab is also suitable for vehicles and rolling equipment’s disinfection. It is safe for plastic piping and exhibits no objectionable corrosive attack on cooper piping. It eliminates pathogens on initial application and then leaves a residuel of chlorine dioxide to prevent re-infection.

Legionnaires’ disease

Hospital-acquired Legionnaires' disease usually originates in hospital water systems. The causative organismo, Legionella bactéria not only persists in hot Waters tanks, it is often found in the biofilm throughout the entire water system. Conditions within water system configuration and age of the hot water tank; and plumbing materials.

An estimated 10 to 15 thousand people contract Legionnaires’ disease in the USA each year; 5 to 15% of these cases prove to be fatal. An additional unknown number are infected with Legionella bacterium and have mild symptoms or no illness at all. Additionally, Legionellosis is frequently misdiagnosed as common pneumonia.

The occurrence of Legionnaires’ disease, and subsequent fatality rates, caused by nosocomial Legionellosis are much higher in hospitals and healthcare facilities than are observed elsewhere. In many parts of the world there is Strong legislation to ensure that this entirely avoidable disease is prevented from coming into contact with high-risk members of the population.

In the USA the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) recommends a Risk Minimization Plan for all healthcare facilities “to reduce the potential for organizational-acquired illness including managing pathogenic biological agents in cooling towers, domestic hor water, and other aerosolizing water systems. The UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) also produce excellent guidance on the control and management of Legionella risks in their Approved Code of Practice & Guidance document “Legionnaires’ disease: The controlo f legionella in water systems”, L8, Additionally, the UK’s Department of Health also produce their own Health Technical Memorandum 04-01 (HTM 04-01) witch delas specifically with the controlo f Legionella in healthcare facilities.

The risk of hospital-acquired Legionnaires’ disease can be minimized by control measures directed at the water distribution system. These includesuperheat-and-flush, copper/silver ionization, ultraviolet light, instantaneous heating systems, and hyper-chlorination. Each of these disinfection methods is effective in the short-term, but long term efficacy is difficult due to limitations associated with each method
