Bacteria control in waste water tanks

Biosan rapide WT is a natural, antimicrobial product developed for disinfection and odor elimination in the dirty water tanks of scrubber-driers. IPC scrubber-driers have "Safe Sanitation Tanks" with antibacterial plastic.


Biosan rapide WT

Scrubber-driers suck up dirt from the floor into the recovery tank. When the machine is not in use, the recovery tank creates an ideal environment for bacterial growth and odors. When the machine is in use, the airflow through the recovery tank can release harmful pathogens and odors into the environment.

To create a more hygienic and safer environment, IPC and Genesis Biosciences introduce biosan rapide WT. It was developed by Genesis Biosciences, the world leader in natural-based antimicrobial technology. It is the first germicidal product that both disinfects and odour neutralizes the recovery tanks of scrubber dryers.

How does biosan rapide WT work?

The active ingredients in biosan rapide WT reduce the bacteria content in the waste water tank overnight by >99.999%. By killing the bacteria, the decomposition of organic waste products is stopped, preventing the formation of unpleasant odors at the source. A pleasant, natural fragrance is released inside the tank and continues to emanate while the cleaning machine is in operation. The patented antimicrobial effect of biosan rapide in the vapor phase penetrates all internal surfaces of the dirty water tank and hoses, eliminating both harmful bacteria and the formation of odors in the tank.

Biosan rapide is easy to use:

  • Empty the recovery tank as usual at the end of the shift. When the tank is empty, open a bag of biosan rapide WT and pour the powder into the tank. Then close the lid of the recovery tank.
  • Number of bags required:
    • Up to 80 l tank volume: 1 bag per day
    • From 80 l and up to 160 l tank volume: 2 bags per day
    • From 160 l and up to 240 l tank volume: 3 bags per day
  • Leave the product on overnight or while the batteries are charging. The product will be rinsed away the next time the tank is emptied.
  • Repeat the process at the end of each layer.

Antimicrobial effectiveness

  • The active ingredients of biosan rapide WT are natural antimicrobial substances derived from plant sources.
  • The antimicrobial activity in the steam phase ensures complete disinfection of the dirty water tank to protect staff and building users from harmful bacteria and odors.
  • Eliminates >99.999 % of bacteria in the waste water tank overnight.
  • Highly effective odor control at the source, created by the unique vapor phase effect.
  • The simultaneous antimicrobial effect and odor control together eliminate the need for two separate disinfectant and fragrance products.

Natural and safe

The natural active ingredient in biosan rapide products is supported by Genesis Biosciences under the European Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012). The antimicrobial efficacy of biosan rapide WT has been tested and verified with recognized disinfectant bacterial strains representing the types of bacteria found in wastewater tanks: Escherichia coli NCIMB 8879 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa NCIMB 10421.

Antimicrobial “Safe Sanitation Tanks” in IPC scrubber dryers

The IPC CleanTime scrubber dryers are optionally available with antibacterial dirty water tank plastic. These new “Safe Sanitation Tanks” combat the development of mold and bacteria to meet the hygiene standards required in highly sensitive environments.

  • The antibacterial plastic is resistant to disinfectants and cleaning agents.
  • IPC has developed this technology together with suppliers to integrate it into the tank manufacturing process.
  • Effective against bacteria: The plastic of the “Safe Sanitation Tanks” increases resistance to mold and bacteria through its additional barrier.
  • The plastic reduces the risk of cross-contamination of surfaces.
  • Promotes compliance with high hygiene standards in healthcare and education.
  • Certified quality (ISO 22196): The material achieved a >99.99% bacteria reduction tested on Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria (ATCC 15442).
