problems. Minncare Cold Sterilant is a powerful oxidant
that stops organism growth by oxidizing microbial cell
proteins and enzyme systems and effectively removes
Minncare Cold Sterilant provides a 6 log reduction
of bacteria population at a 100X dilution (1%) within
a 36-minute soak time. Elimination of bacterial
contamination will help improve product quality and
contribute to increased RO membrane life.
Minncare Cold Sterilant may eliminate the need for acid
cleaning of fouled membranes prior to disinfection in cases
where transition metals, such as iron, are not present.

Compatible w/ Thin Film Composite Membranes

Minncare Cold Sterilant gently and completely cleans
membranes. Minntech peracetic acid formulations
have been successfully used at hundreds of locations on
thin film composite membranes and cellulose acetate
membranes. Many of the applications have included
extended soak times. Minncare Cold Sterilant will
disinfect membranes and protect against decreased
flux that is commonly associated with the use of
