Neuthox® Generators (Chemical-Free Dosing)
If you currently use Biocides to disinfect your water LCS can offer you an alternative system that will pay for itself in lower operation costs and considerable energy savings.
Our generators produce the disinfectant liquid NEUTHOX®, which contains Hypochlorous acid as active agent. Hypochlorous acid or HOCI is a substance naturally occurring in the human body and is therefore harmless.
Hypochlorous acid is the active agent that handles the disinfection when NEUTHOX® is added to water. All bacteria known to cause diseases in humans are eliminated, including the deadly legionella bacteria.
Key benefits of Neuthox Generators:
- A safe and sustainable solution.
- A chemical free solution.
