Agriculture/Hog - Biofilm Removal

Part of any biosecurity program in agriculture should include the regular use of our an enzymatic cleaner called PRESOAK, to eat through the resistant biofilm that covers bacteria and allow the cleaning agent to attack and kill the bacteria directly. Without a specialized cleaner working its way through the biofilm, bacteria can remain safely secured to your surfaces and can continue to grow and infect animals and humans that come in contact with it. PRESOAK is easy and safe to use and environmentally friendly.

Agriculture/Hog, Easy to Clean Surfaces

Protective nano-coatings, SIGMAtek Non-Absorbent and Absorbent, are applied to machinery, walls, floors and other surfaces to create easier to clean surfaces reducing labour and water costs. The hydrophobic surface that is created helps repel water, reduce corrosion and inhibit soils, bacteria and moulds from adhering and growing on your farm surfaces. Prior to applying our nano-coating on a hard surface, start with our PRESOAK cleaner to remove soils and organic materials followed by our FINAL WASH to remove the last bit of grease and oil to maximize the bonding and life expectancy of the nano-coating.

Oil and Gas - Removing H2S in Tanker Trucks

Oil and gas tanker trucks often haul processed water from drilling activities. The water and oil mixture can include many harmful materials along with high bacteria loads. With the simple addition of PUREtek to the tanker the water will have the bacteria eliminated which are often creating deadly H2S gas in the tanker. Suspended materials will be dropped to the bottom of the tanker. The treated water will be in a better position for reuse or further sanitization. Application of SIGMAtek Non-Absorbent to the outside surface of the tanker drug will help make it easier to clean.
