On-Site and On-Demand
ECOLOXTECH systems are compact and easy to install. Systems are designed to generate Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water on-site and on-demand from an additive made yourself with just table salt and water.
What is Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water?
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid (HOCl), a neutral-to-acidic electrolyzed water. HOCl has been studied for over 100 years and it is an undeniable fact that it is a more powerful oxidant than chlorine bleach. Only within the last 30 years have we been able to generate solutions of near 100% HOCl in such a stable form. HOCl kills bacteria, bacterial spores, and viruses 100 times more effectively than chlorine bleach.
How does it work?
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is a powerful oxidant (800 to 1000 mV) that can kill microbial pathogens immediately upon contact by damaging cell walls or inactivate the pathogen by entering and disrupting proteins, lipids, and DNA.
Has it been researched?
In the last 30 years we have collected over 300 published research articles supporting the use of Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water. Nearly every common bacterial pathogen has been studied such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Vibrio, Staphylococcus, MRSA, spore forming bacteria, and many common viruses (including Norovirus) and fungi. To learn more please visit our research page and search by microbe or industry to find applicable research.
What about regulation from FDA, USDA, and EPA?
We have pages dedicated to the regulation of electrolyzed water as it pertains to the FDA, USDA, and EPA. Please visit our pages for more information. In regards to healthcare sanitation, see our page for the CDC.
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water (EOW) is an eco-friendly sanitizer that is 100% safe and non-toxic. It can be used to replace all the chemicals used in schools for cleaning and sanitation. Schools have many shared contact surfaces that can be contaminated with bacteria and viruses spread by skin flora and respiratory droplets. Common bacteria that contaminate contact surfaces include bacteria such as staphylococcus and streptococcus and viruses such as Adenovirus, Influenza, and Norovirus.
Not only can EOW kill the most common microbial pathogens spread from skin flora and respiratory droplets, but it is effective against the most common foodborne pathogens as well. EOW can inactivate foodborne pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria, and E. coli. EOW is 100% safe on food and can be used for routine sanitation of school kitchens, preparation areas, food serving areas, and eating areas.
EOW is generated on-site and on-demand. The only ingredients needed are salt, water, and electricity. Concentrated chemicals require purchasing, transporting, storing, and preparation. Preparation of toxic concentrated chemicals can be a safety hazard for employees as they are respiratory and skin irritants. EOW is 100% safe for employees. It does not require any special handling. It is non-irritant and does not require gloves or masks.
Application by Direct Application, Spraying, and Fogging
EOW can be applied using many different methods. Not only can it be applied directly with rags and mops, but it can also be applied broadly using pressure sprayers and foggers. Pressure sprayers can be used to sanitize floors and hard surfaces. Classrooms, gyms, and other large common areas can be sanitized and deodorized using fogging.
Effective Against Microbial Pathogens
Not only is electrolyzed sanitation water safe and all-natural, but it is more effective than the chemicals currently being used.
