EWCO Water Disinfection
The EWCO 1200 Electrolyzer can disinfect water on-site and on-demand from just salt, water, and electricity.
How much water can it disinfect?
Each system can generate enough free available chlorine in the form of hypochlorous acid
to disinfect 200 Liters of water per minute. The systems can be stacked to disinfect any volume of water
How does it work?
The EWCO 1200 Electrolyzer generates a mixed oxidant solution primarily composed of hypochlorous acid
) but also other powerful oxidants such as ozone and chlorine dioxide.
Hypochlorous acid is a powerful oxidant that is stable in solution that can kill microbial pathogens immediately upon contact by damaging cell walls and disrupting internal 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 for disinfection. Nearly every common bacteria

What about EPA regulation?
Because electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid
is a free chlorine molecule, it falls under the Safe Water Drinking Act (42 U.S.C. 300f et seq. 1974) which allows for a free chlorine concentration of up to 4 ppm.
Cooling towers provide ideal environments for microbial pathogens such as Legionella to grow. Legionella can easily grow in cooling tower water, especially if algae and scale are present.
Legionella is dispersed with aerosolized drift or with the evaporate and may also enter the air-conditioning system if there is a break between the ducts of the cooling tower and evaporative condenser.
Inhalation of small particles of contaminated water (aerosols) is a common method of spread of Legionella. The Legionella microbes reach the lungs and then produce disease.
The EWCO 1200 Electrolyzer can maintain water disinfection by recirculating the water to generate an electrolyzed water (hypochlorous acid
). Electrolyzed water, also called superoxidized water, is a mixed oxidant
solution primarily composed of hypochlorous acid
. By recirculating through the electrolyzer, the cooling tower water can be maintained with a free chlorine concentration of 4 ppm.
The EWCO 1200 Electrolyzer is a compact system that uses patented electrolysis cells to generate a stable molecule of hypochlorous acid
with just salt, water, and electricity. The system can disinfect
up to 200 liters of water a minute using as little electricity as that of four standard light bulbs.
