Antimicrobial in TORUS Advanced Filters
The unique TORUS™ Filters come in Standard and Advanced versions. Each use special ingredients to remove impurities from water, to ensure your pet has access to clean, fresh water every time they drink.
Our TORUS™ Advanced Antimicrobial Filters include a stainless-steel perforated wall for more controlled release. The antimicrobial ingredients are blended with Biosafe and are made in the USA. Biosafe contains FDA Compliant and NSF Certified antimicrobial technology that ensures a higher level of filtration.
The Science of Biosafe Ingredients
The COC-AL60 granular activated carbon used is manufactured from select grades and is commonly used for the purification of potable water, beverage manufacture, dialysis, aquarium water and a variety of food grade applications. COC-AL60 will effectively remove chlorine, chloramines, lead, TCE, PCE, THMs 1,2,3-Trichloropropane, phenols, pesticides, detergents, taste and odour, and more.
Biosafe protects products from micro-organism colonization by physically rupturing the microbe’s cell membrane and destroying the microbes on contact and does not promote microbial resistance through adaption and mutation. The antimicrobial binds to a wide range of surfaces to render long-lasting protection, synergistically enhancing the effectiveness of disinfection and sanitization.
The ingredients of the TORUS™ Advanced Filters are made in the USA and are FDA Compliant and NSF Certified. The Antimicrobial is 5% aqueous solution of 3-(Trihydroxysilyl)propyldimethyloctadecyl ammonium chloride, Methanol-free and the ingredients are approved for use as an antimicrobial active ingredient under EPA and FDA Regulations including surfaces that come in direct contact with finished food.
Biosafe antimicrobial has been clinically tested in hospital settings where it showed that a single application helps keep high touch surfaces hygienically clean around-the-clock for up to five weeks when incorporated into standard cleaning protocol.
Biosafe has an excellent safety profile, is non-toxic, non-irritating, and does not show transdermal absorption.
