What is iHP (Ionised Hydrogen Peroxide)?
iHP refers to ionised hydrogen peroxide emitted by our cleaning equipment. The process uses a 6-10% concentration of hydrogen peroxide. From a fogging machine, usually handheld, it creates a mist of hydrogen peroxide that, before they become airborne, the droplets pass through a cold plasma arc created between two high energy electrodes at 17,000 volts. Now we have similarly charged hydrogen peroxide charged particles which all repel each other but adhere to oppositely charged surfaces and particles in the air, killing all micro-organisms it comes into contact with.
How iHP Decontamination Works
• Sanitisation – making your area and the objects within it clean
• Disinfection – eliminates pathogenic organisms
• Sterilisation – completely eliminates microbial viability
What Does Log 6 Reduction Mean?
Each level offers different tiers of sterility assurance, and this is counted in logs. Every log reduction represents a 90% reduction of non-pathogenic and pathogenic spores, fungi and viruses – the microbial population. So a two log (10-2) reduction brings sanitisation, a five log (10-5) reduction is disinfection, and a six log (10-6) reduction reduces the microbial population to virtually zero – sterilisation.
