On-Site and On-Demand
EWCO 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
), 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.
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
, spore forming bacteria
viruses (including Norovirus)

Produce and Processing Plant Sanitation
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water (EOW), or electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid
, is a safe and effective antimicrobial on fruits and vegetables. Electrolyzed water has demonstrated in numerous studies to be highly
effective for inactivating E. coli O157:H7
, Salmonella enteritidis, Listeria monocytogenes, and spore-forming bacteria. EOW is a no-rinse sanitizer. No post-rinse with potable water is required.
EOW leaves no harmful residues, does not alter taste, does not leave an odor, and does not cause discoloration of produce. EWCO satisfies the demand for implementing safer and more natural food products.
Electrolyzed Water in Produce Washers
EOW is ideal for replacing the water used in produce washers. There are no limitations to the capacity that can be produced. For large produce washers,
the EWCO 1200 can produce 30 ton of electrolyzed water (hypochlorous acid
) per day. The systems can also be stacked to meet any produce washer need.
Electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid
is a powerful oxidant that is stable in solution. When saturating produce contaminated with microbial pathogens, hypochlorous acid
the pathogens by damaging their cell walls and disrupting their internal proteins, lipids, and DNA.
Greenhouse Growers and Sanitizing Hydroponic Channels
For greenhouse growers, electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid
can be used to clean and disinfect hydroponic channels and eradicate biofilm in irrigation systems.
Adding low concentrations to irrigation water can control buildup of bioflim and reduce bacteria at the roots of plants.
Pressure Spraying and Fogging
When cleaning and sanitizing contact surfaces, tools, equipment or large open areas, EOW can be appied via pressure sprayers or foggers. Hypochlorous acid is approved by the EPA for use on food contact surfaces at concentrations as high as 200 ppm.
EOW is highly effective at inactivating microbial pathogens when making contact in liquid form.
Eliminating Chemicals and Employee Safety
EWCO electrolyzers eliminate the need for purchasing, transporting, storing, and preparing of toxic concentrated chemicals. Processing
plants can switch to an environmentally friendly technology while saving time, space, and money. Electrolyzed water composed of
is 100 times more effective than sodium hypochlorite yet requires no protective gear or safety equipment
and is non-toxic, non-irritant, and eco-friendly. EWCO offers an environmentally sound alternative to concentrated toxic chemicals and
satisfies the demand for implementing safer and more natural food products.
