BerkeLYT high performance catalysts will attract fragments of microorganisms - such as bacteria, yeast or molds - present in the water systems by electrostatic charging. On the catalyst surface these germ fragments are degraded. Through this process so-called biosurfactants are produced. These biosurfactants will cause a removal and dying off of the biofilm present in the surface materials, as well as prevent the development, therefore will reduce the risk of Legionella.
Two core technologies are utilized:
Using a specific wavelength range of light, oxygen species similar to those found in nature are formed directly on the surface of the full-metal catalysts. Thereby, undesirable side effects to people and the environment are eliminated. BerkeLYT GREEN performs completely without the use of biocides.
With this system, interactions occur on the surface of the BerkeLYT ox-full metal catalysts between small amounts of Hydrex Activator and free microorganisms in the water. From the reactions on the catalysts’ surface biotensides are produced, which remove the bio-layers in the water treatment plant and prevent their regeneration. This process minimises the use of biocides.
