100% biodegradable truly wide spectrum biocide. The Zelo family of biocides provides effective control over a broad range of micro-pathogens including legionella, e.coli, influenza A and B, pseudomonas, campylobacter, salmonella, MRSA, VRE and other bacterial, viral and fungal infections both on hard surfaces and in water-based systems. Zelo reliably prevents recontamination, and maintains its long-term effectiveness even at very high water temperatures.
• Broad spectrum high performance biocide effective against all kinds of bacteria, viruses, yeast, mold and spore formers
• Is highly effective against Legionella pneumophila
• Environmentally friendly – practically 100% degradable breaking down to water and oxygen
• Does not create odor or alter the taste of food products treated with it
• Effectiveness and long-term effects are guaranteed even at very high water temperatures
• Has no toxic effect in its diluted state
• Does not react with ammonium-ions – no attrition
• By adding oxygen, anaerobic conditions in the cooling water are largely avoided, thus preventing the growth of sulfate-reducing bacteria (formation of corrosive hydrogen sulfide – 4 H2+ SO42- S2- + 4 H2O)
Due to the fact that Zelo product family members are such effective disinfectants, they have numerous applications. Zelo products are perfect for use in hospitals, veterinary surgeries, food production facilities, farms, hotels, industrial and office buildings, schools, swimming pools and resorts.
Zelo product line also provides a complete bio-security solution for poultry, fruit and vegetable, beverage, meat and fish production processes.
Zelo is effective against all kinds of bacteria, viruses, yeasts, molds and spore formers.
Zelo is considered to be environmentally friendly as it is virtually 100% degradable under use conditions, simply breaking down to leave water and oxygen.
