• Guaranteeing optimum hygiene in your facilities by detecting and eliminating biofilm contaminations

  • Mastering an efficient cleaning… until decontamination

Life Sciences

Technochim and Realco are joining forces and expertise to offer a unique solution in the Life Sciences sector !

  • The technology developed by Technochim allows class I, II or III rouging to be eliminated with great efficiency.
  • Realco is the expert who detects, eliminates and prevents contaminations linked to biofilm.

As rouging can lead to biofilm formation, this partnership makes a lot of sense…
The objective is also to offer a safe and effective solution while respecting people and their environment.

What is rouging ?

Rouging is recognized by its red-orange colour. It only appears on the internal surfaces of ultra-clean pharmaceutical networks such as water for injection production and distribution networks (WFI) or pure steam networks (PS). It concerns iron oxides which attach themselves in the passive layer by substituting themselves for chromium oxides. Gradually, the stainless steel loses its corrosion resistant properties and iron oxide particles risk spreading into the network.

Realco ensures optimal hygiene of your facilities until decontamination.

Secure the quality of your water loops and your production lines thanks to a preventive enzymatic treatment!

Prevent the appearance of biofilms thanks to a unique and patented treatment combining a detergent base and a specific cocktail of enzymes.

This highly specific and complex enzyme cocktail is the only one that can dissolve the protective matrix of the biofilm. Once the matrix is destroyed, the released bacteria become accessible to biocides.

  • Non-corrosive product
  • Suitable for AP (purified water) and WFI (water for injection purposes)
  • For closed circuits and open surfaces
  • Biodegradability rate > 96% in 28 days (OECD 302B)
