At LiquiTech, we are constantly researching and continually improving our Copper Silver Ionization systems. Throughout our over fifteen years of experience in this industry we have compiled an extensive library of academic studies, peer reviews, and various other research articles which highlight the ability of Copper Silver Ionization to not only eradicate a vast number of waterborne pathogens* from facility water systems but also provide residual protection from future outbreaks*.
We would be happy to put together a package of publications that center around your facility's specific water disinfection needs. Please contact us for further information.
*Claims against organisms other than Legionella are based on independent, peer reviewed scientific research and have not been reviewed, evaluated, or approved by the EPA.
