Kona Infection Control – KIC TAP
MintDevices Australia has proudly introduced Worlds 1st TGA registered Kona Infection Control Antimicrobial Disinfection Tap (KIC TAP).
Our simple to install commercial ozone system provides Bacteria & Virus Free water for infection prevention in the Dental/Medical, Hospitality, Aged Care, Child Care, Food Services & Veterinary Industries.
The healthiest way of using water
KIC TAP is a revolutionary technology that converts oxygen to ozone gas and mixes it with water to create ozone water straight from the tap.
Ozone water can be used directly on hands, foods and surfaces as a powerful disinfectant that kills bacteria, viruses and germs.
KIC TAPS are 1st TGA registered ozone system and the most safe, effective and healthy way of using water.
How do KIC TAPS work?
When electrical energy splits an oxygen molecule (O2), it starts a chemical reaction that results in ozone (O3). That is how Ozone is created.
Our KIC TAPS deliver precise and measured ozone gas through closed self-contained system that produces ozonated water by a patented ozone gas generator and valve system, and a Venturi mixing tube.
Take a look at the recent installations of our Commercial KIC Sensor Antimicrobial Taps.
Number one Infection Control solution
Kona Infection Control Taps can be used across a broad spectrum of businesses and institutions including hospitals, schools, residential aged care facilities, restaurants.
Ozone is the most effective disinfectant on earth. It kills all the germs, food pathogens, E-coli, Listeria, Shigella, Salmonella, Hepatitis A and Legionella and reacts 3,000 times faster than chlorine. It does not leave unwanted chemical residues and it’s being used to treat drinking water across the world. Many facilities in Australia, USA, France, Germany, the UK and other countries use ozonated water as a superior solution to infection control.
Ozone is being used to disinfect water by many international bottled drinks companies. Hospitals use it to sterilise medical wards, and restaurants to clean work surfaces and wash fruits and vegetables before use.
Why invest in KIC TAP installation?
Preventing a problem is always better than treating a problem! With KIC TAP’s ozonated water you can provide new standard of care, chemical FREE, environmentally safe and effective Infection Control 24 hours a day.

Ozonated water protects against viruses
A new type of corona virus has emerged in China and the world is bracing for an impact of a major epidemic.
Since antibiotics are failing to help and have served to create more pathogens, humanity needs alternatives to fight bacteria & viruses.
We can minimize the challenges to our immune system by frequently washing our hands. Alcohol and chemical wipes are not the best choice as these chemicals strip the skin of its natural oils.
Ozone, on the other hand, can treat any infection without any side-effects. What is more, ozonated water keeps the risk of new infection to a minimum when used in handwashing and cleaning surfaces.
Kona Infection Control Antimicrobial Disinfection Tap delivers ozonated water which kills bacteria and viruses within 10 seconds. In a world that is constantly facing new viruses and epidemics, KIC TAP ozone system is a must.

Italy sanctions use of ozone to combat Covid-19
Ozone therapy can be used to treat people who tested positive at Covid-19.
In a letter sent on 24 March to the Scientific Society of Oxygen Ozono Therapy (SIOOT), the Scientific Secretariat of the President of the Higher Institute of Health (ISS) authorizes the use of ozone therapy for the treatment of people who have tested positive to Covid-19.
It is written in the letter that the proposal of the SIOOT protocol for the possible use of Oxygen Ozono Therapy in the treatment of interstitial coronavirus pneumonia has been carefully evaluated by some EXPERTS of the ISS'.
"The actual data available with respect to the proposed indication," the letter continues, "is essentially a demonstration of the effectiveness of ozone in killing the SARS virus in monkey cells, and in the clinical experience of the benefit patients with bronchopneumonia."
Handling the challenges of Norovirus and C. difficile infection
Norovirus infections can have serious health consequences, causing morbidity and mortality, particularly in elderly patients, as well as in young children and people with compromised immune responses.
Early recognition and prompt implementation of infection prevention and control measures are essential for limiting the severity of a norovirus outbreak. Those infection prevention and control measures must address both patients and their healthcare providers.
One of the primary control strategies to interrupt NoV transmission during outbreaks is appropriate hand hygiene. The Kona Ozone tap produces ozonated water that is perfect for infection control and handwashing.
