WHY HYPOCHLOROUS ACID?
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI) is a highly potent oxidizing agent and will bind to the cell membrane of a bacteria, fungus, or virus and destroy the membrane, thus killing the cell. Studies with HOCl have shown that it is highly effective against resistant strains of bacteria and has been shown to be 70-80 times more effective than bleach in cleaning and disinfecting.

The “Quick Kill” Hypochlorous Generator processes electrolyzed water through electrolysis. This is where salt (NaCl) in the brine is electrically separated into its two main ions: Sodium (Na) and Chlorine (Cl). Those two ions are then mixed into two separate streams of fresh water thus making two very useful solutions; Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl), a strong disinfecting solution and Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH), which contains and carries away impurities eliminating residue from the Hypochlorous acid. The “Quick Kill” system is PH neutral and field adjustable.
Hypochlorous Acid (HOCI) is a highly potent oxidizing agent and will easily bind to the cell membrane of a bacteria, fungus, or virus and destroy the membrane, thus killing the cell. Studies with HOCl have shown that it is highly effective against resistant strains of bacteria and viruses such as C-Diff, MRSA HIV, TB, VRE. It effectively and efficiently kills human corona virus in seconds and has been shown to be 80-100 times more effective than liquid bleach in disinfecting.
Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) is a PH basic solution that acts as an effective degreaser, surface and glass cleaner, carpet shampoo, vegetable wash and all-around cleaning solution. NaOH is commonly found as the only active ingredient in many of today’s commercial cleaners. As a byproduct of HOCI generation, it may be reserved or put to drain.
HOCl can be used in fogging and spraying applications. Because it is economical to produce, it can also be used to mop floors.
Yes – See EPA website: “List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2”
Yes – EPA registered as EPA LIST D & LIST N
No – The agents that cause odors and residue are in the affluent of the process. These agents are disposed of down the drain. The affluent is EPA safe and does not require special processing.
Yes – Simple web searches will bring up multiple pages proving efficacy. Organizations such as The Lancet, CDC, NIH, and others provide this information.
Yes – Some users have completely replaced purchased chemicals with our Hypochlorous Acid “Quick Kill” system for spraying or fogging. The benefits are better disinfection and a sustainable self-made supply of product.
Yes – HOCl is non-toxic. Burn units in hospitals use it for wound care and some grocers mist their displayed produce with Hypochlorous Acid.
No – The byproduct of manufacturing HOCl is Sodium Hydroxide. Most systems combine the 2 agents. We separate the sodium hydroxide and dispose of it.
After initial investment of the system, expenses including salt, water & electricity results in a production cost of 1.2 cents per gallon! If the system is used to replace conventional chemicals, ROI can be recognized in fewer than 2 years.
Approximately 3-5 (40lb) bags of pool/spa grade salt per year.
System requirements will vary. Units produce between 5.28 and 79.25 gallons per hour.
