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
has been studied

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.
Industrial Water Disinfection
EWCO Electrolyzers can be used to disinfect water for any industrial use application. Whether it be for drinking water, food processing, manufacturing, or waste water recovery, the EWCO 1200
Electrolyzer can be stacked to meet any volume need.
Electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid
eliminates common microbial contaminants:
- Caliciviruses (including Norovirus)
- Campylobacter jejuni
- Enterovirus (including polioviruses, coxsakieviruses, and echoviruses)
- Escherichia coli (O157)
- Helicobacter pylori
- Hepatitis A
- Legionella pneumophilia
- Mycobacterium avium
- Salmonella enterica
- Shigella sonnei
