Hydrogen peroxide disinfection – Hydrogen peroxide is used daily in various industries for disinfecting water. Hydrogen peroxide provides an oxidizing effect and leaves no residue. However, the product also has stability problems. We have the solution for that: hydrogen peroxide with special stabilizing ingredients, called Freebac-Clearoxyl®. In addition to the stabilizing effect, with Freebac-Clearoxyl you need a lower dosage for cleaning process water or disinfecting organic material in waste water.

Disinfect with hydrogen peroxide

Disinfectants based on hydrogen peroxide are relatively unknown in the food processing industry. Most disinfectants are based on chlorine compounds, quaternary ammonium compounds (quats) or alcohol. Disinfectants based on hydrogen peroxides have been developed for a number of years into a reliable and user-friendly product.

Thorough disinfection with hydrogen peroxide

The hydrogen peroxide disinfectant has shortcomings in the form of stability problems. An autoredox reaction occurs when disinfecting with water peroxide. This means that the drug can never stop reacting once the reaction has started. As a result, when using "normal" hydrogen peroxide, an enormous amount of peroxide is required to kill all bacteria.

This effect is overcome by adding stabilizing ingredients. Freebac-Clearoxyl is therefore one of the most stable disinfectants based on hydrogen peroxide. We convert hydrogen peroxide into microencapsulated oxygen. That is why Freebac is unique and can no longer be compared with hydrogen peroxide.

Working principle

Hydrogen peroxide disinfectants have an oxidation principle. Simply put: when disinfecting with hydrogen peroxide, the bacteria are burned. With other disinfection products (chlorine, quats) the cell nucleus of the bacteria is affected. This is another working principle. Micro-organisms can become resistant to this method. This is impossible for hydrogen peroxide. After all, nothing can withstand combustion.

Three generations of hydrogen peroxide

The first generation of disinfectants based on hydrogen peroxide were not stable enough. The second generation of hydrogen peroxides, stabilized with silver (nitrate) or peracetic acid, often have disadvantages in the longer term. The latest generation of hydrogen peroxide is the future: hydrogen peroxide stabilized with natural ingredients; effective, stable, no residues and no adverse effects on equipment and surfaces.

No residues

Hydrogen peroxide has the chemical formula H2O2. After reaction, the molecule breaks down into H2O and O2. In this sense, disinfection with hydrogen peroxide does not leave any residue. Water and oxygen are everywhere and are not harmful or dangerous. This is an important reason why hydrogen peroxide is often used for cleaning (drinking) water applications. In addition, this property of hydrogen peroxide is also very useful in the food industry.
