FAQ, What is Electrostatic Disinfection and Hypochlorous Acid? Greenville SC
What is electrolyzed water?
Electrolyzed water is an all natural solution that is produced using just tap water, salts, and electricity. When using food grade table salt as an additive, our systems can generate a near neutral electrolyzed water (pH 5-7) composed mostly of stable hypochlorous acid (HOCl), a powerful oxidant and antimicrobial.
How effective is electrolyzed water as an antimicrobial?
Electrolyzed water, when generated from food grade table salt, is one of the most powerful sanitizers on the market. Electrolyzed water can be 100x more effective than chlorine bleach against bacteria, bacterial spores, viruses, and fungi. There are over 300 published research articles demonstrating it's effectiveness.
How effective against microbial pathogens?
Electrolyzed water's microbial killing power is contributed to its high oxidation potential (800 mV to 1,000 mV). Our electrolyzed water, when generated from food grade table salt, is composed 90% of stable hypochlorous acid (HOCl). HOCl is electrically neutral allowing for it to easily penetrate bacterial cell walls and viral protein coats and envelopes. Through oxidation. It destroys DNA, RNA, and proteins necessary for bacterial and viral survival and replication.
How safe is electrolyzed water?
Electrolyzed water is an all natural sanitizer created with just tap water, salt, and electricity. Electrolyzed water is non-toxic, non-hazardous, and non-irritant.
Can it be used directly on food as a no-rinse sanitizer?
Yes, electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid has been approved by the FDA for use as a no-rinse sanitizer on food contact surfaces and directly on food. It is also considered organic.
Does it require a Hazardous use permit?
No, it does not require a hazardous use permit.
Does it require safety gear by users?
No, it does not require any safety gear such as eye protection or gloves. It is non-toxic, non-hazardous, and non-irritant.
