Superior Biocidal Activity

Protect reverse osmosis membranes and their associated distribution systems against short- and long-term bacterial problems. Minncare Cold Sterilant is a powerful oxidant that stops organism growth by oxidizing microbial cell proteins and enzyme systems and effectively removes biofilms.

Minncare Cold Sterilant provides a 6 log reduction of bacteria population at a 100X dilution (1%) within a 36-minute soak time. Elimination of bacterial contamination will help improve product quality and contribute to increased RO membrane life.

Minncare Cold Sterilant may eliminate the need for acid cleaning of fouled membranes prior to disinfection in cases where transition metals, such as iron, are not present.

Biodegradable and Ease of Disposal

Minncare Cold Sterilant is biodegradable and will decompose into oxygen, water and acetic acid. It poses no threat to municipal waste treatment plants.* Residual test strips are available that accurately verify rinse-out levels of Minncare Cold Sterilant as low as one part per million.

Compatible with Thin Film Composite Membranes

Minncare Cold Sterilant gently and completely cleans membranes. Minntech peracetic acid formulations have been successfully used at hundreds of locations on thin film composite membranes and cellulose acetate membranes. Many of the applications have included extended soak times. Minncare Cold Sterilant will disinfect membranes and protect against decreased flux that is commonly associated with the use of formaldehyde.

No Toxic-Aldehyde Vapors

Minncare Cold Sterilant protects employees from exposure to toxic aldehyde vapors. Although proper care must be taken when handling concentrated Minncare Cold Sterilant, the use-dilution form requires no exceptional handling procedures.

*Spent Minncare Cold Sterilant is acidic and requires normal neutralization as specified by your state and local regulations. A 1% solution of Minncare Cold Sterilant has a pH of 3.5.
