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 (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?

Research Publications

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.

Zoo Sanitation

Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water (EOW) is safe, non-toxic, and eco-friendly. It can replace all chemical sanitizers used in zoos. It is a powerful oxidant that can elminate microbial pathogens but eventually converts back to is natural form which is just water and salt. EOW is safe on animals as it is non-irritant and gentle on skin and eyes. It is the ideal sanitizer for replacing chlorine bleach and can effectively sanitize living environments for zoo animals.

Safe and Natural Zoo Sanitation

Employee Safety

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 using Spraying, Dosing, Misting, and Fogging,

EOW can be applied using many different methods. Pressure sprayers can be used to sanitize equipment and hard surfaces. EOW can be dosed into fountains and pools to disinfect and help maintain sanitation from biofilm and algae. Large spaces can be sanitized and deodorized using misting and 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.

  • 100 times more biocidal than chlorine bleach
  • Effective against most G+ and G- bacteria
  • Effective against VRE, MRSA, and MRSE
  • Effective against Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  • Effective against HIV, HBV, HCV, and CMV
  • No high temperatures are necessary
  • Most effective between 50-86 ºF (10-30 ºC)
  • Does not cause irritation, safe on eyes and skin
  • No protective gear is required

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 (HOCl) 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?

Research Publications

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 as well as viruses and fungi. To learn more please visit our research page and search by microbe to find applicable research.

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.

Water Disinfection

Water disinfection by electrochemical activation is not only more effective than conventional methods of water disinfection, but it is less expensive and environmentally friendly.

The conventional methods, which have seen extensive use over the last 100 years, include chlorine gas and chlorine solutions of sodium hypochlorite (bleach). Despite the vast amount of experience gained over the years, these methods have disadvantages, including the cost of the chemicals and the large investment required for protection and safety equipment.

Electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid 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. Water Disinfection

Electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid eliminates common microbial contaminants:

  • Adenovirus
  • 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
