Our Patented TANCS® Technology
United States Pat No 7,547,413
LETHAL FOR GERMS. SAFE FOR YOU!
It’s scientifically proven! TANCS® steam vapor disinfects much faster than any direct water-based chemical-driven process.
Thermal Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation (TANCS®) is a fancy term for a fairly simple patented process. First, our proprietary technology encourages the formation of nano crystals within tap water. Then, when the water transforms into super-heated low-moisture steam, these energized crystals accelerate to help disrupt the cell membranes of the microbes on the surface you want to clean, making them more sensitive to moist heat.
The best part? The process only affects the microbes (germs) and is completely safe for you!
For years, bleach (sodium hypochlorite) has been mistakenly associated with an absolutely clean and disinfected surface. Today, scientists are becoming more aware of the limitations of chemical disinfectants and sanitizers. Recent studies investigating biofilms (microbe colonies present on many pieces of food processing equipment, for example) reveal that 60 minutes of exposure to bleach leaves as many live cells as dead cells in the biofilm matrix. This leads to rapid recolonization of the surface.
Studies show that sufficient heat as is present in the TANCS® steam vapor system will travel through the biofilm and kill the cells that are unreachable by the surface application of a germicide. All without degrading the surface you’re cleaning or impairing the air you’re breathing while you’re doing it!
