biostream® ZERO for the disinfection of dispensing systems and drinking water systems.
Save time and money when disinfecting dispensing equipment!
biostream® GmbH offers you an effective disinfectant with which you, as the responsible person, can carry out a quick and equally perfect disinfection of the dispensing system directly on site – cost-effectively! Table-top equipment and drinking water dispensers can also be disinfected. It does not matter whether they are connected to the mains or not.
In contrast to alkaline, peroxide or manganese-containing products, such as hydrogen peroxide, biostream® ZERO is approved for the disinfection of drinking water without exemption according to the current drinking water ordinance. Our process for disinfecting drinking water is also mentioned as effective in the DVGW worksheet W291 and in the current DIN 2001-2.
There is no need for time-consuming and costly flushing to completely remove disinfectants that are not allowed to enter the drinking water. The biostream® active ingredient is allowed to remain in the drinking water in small quantities according to the Drinking Water Ordinance.
Fungi, algae, viruses and pathogenic germs are effectively combated and killed by the drinking water-approved active ingredient. In technical language, these germs are called pseudomonads (Pseudomonas), E.Coli and Legionella.

A typical application:
You have to disinfect 8 drinking water systems in a large office complex. A disinfection according to the state of the art is mostly done with hydrogen peroxide, which has to be used 25 times higher concentrated than biostream® ZERO to ensure the same effectiveness (according to DVGW W291). The higher concentration causes high costs and since hydrogen peroxide has a bad flushing out behavior, you will need (depending on the drinking water system) about 1 hour to have completely flushed the hydrogen peroxide out of the system again.
However, if you use biostream® ZERO, a single rinsing of the system with approx. 6 liters of water is sufficient. Done. Simple. Effective!
SUSTAINABLE CONTROL OF LEGIONELLA AND BIOFILMS
Legionella (e.g. Legionella pneumophila) are a water hygiene problem that is often underestimated. They are also the cause of legionnaires' disease (legionellosis).
Legionella settle in the so-called biofilms, which can only be combated poorly or not at all by e.g. disinfectants containing hydrogen peroxide. Chlorine also has less disinfecting power than the active ingredient chlorine dioxide present in our products.
According to the current Drinking Water Ordinance, biostream® products are approved as disinfectants for drinking water. In addition, our products comply with the current requirements of the Biocide Directive.
Our customers combat biofilms, viruses and bacteria in very different application scenarios: The dentist worries about his treatment unit and the yacht owner or camper cares about the perfect hygiene of his water tank. But our products are also used in industry to combat Legionella and E.Coli.
The biostream® products are available in different container sizes and packaging:
We deliver as individually as necessary. For example, biostream® asepticaPRO is available in small 10ml vials that require very little storage space and are therefore ideal for travel and outdoor expeditions.
All biostream® products are approved as disinfectants for drinking water according to the current Drinking Water Ordinance and comply with Article 95 (2) of the Biocide Regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012).
HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND AGENTS CONTAINING SILVER ARE NOT AN ALTERNATIVE
The biostream® products ZERO and asepticaPRO comply with DIN 2001-2:2009-04 (drinking water supply from small systems and non-stationary systems) and they are effective over the entire drinking water pH range. Hydrogen peroxide is not mentioned in the DIN as a disinfectant - also in the current UBA list of the Federal Environment Agency hydrogen peroxide is only mentioned as an oxidant - but not as a disinfectant.
Take a look at the label of the disinfectant you are currently using: If you find hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient there, then according to the Federal Environment Agency you are NOT using a DISINFECTING AGENT but an oxidizing agent which, according to DVGW worksheet W291, must be dosed 25 X more strongly in order to achieve the same effectiveness as the active ingredient in the biostream® products.
And if your product also contains silver: Silver is also not mentioned as a disinfectant but only as a preservative. In addition, the following note on this can be found in the DIN: "Only in exceptional cases when storing drinking water without consumption for a longer period of time. Preservation does not replace any necessary disinfection of drinking water that is not in perfect condition."
Use biocidal products with care. Always read label and product information before use.
All statements on effectiveness refer to the many years of experience of biostream® GmbH, to information from technical literature, laws, regulations and to positive customer references.
Gender language: As already communicated 04/2019: On our websites we use the word "employee/customer/user" for simpler wording. However, we define "employee/customer/user" not only in the masculine form but also in the currently used definition (m/f/d).
