Most biological disinfectants, such as benzalkonium chloride or chlorhexidine di-gluconate-based solutions, have proven to be less effective in the fight against the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus, or endemic human coronaviruses (HCoV). 22 studies, comparing anti-viral disinfectants, revealed that alternative disinfectants, such as hypochlorous acid-based solutions, can effectively inactivate those viruses in under a minute. Having an in-house electrolyzed water machine enables businesses to produce unlimited quantities of such disinfectants.
Wide-scale Real World Applications
HOCL is a proven disinfectant that offers significantly higher protection, against viruses, bacteria, and germs, compared to many other forms of traditional sanitizers. And that’s why, HOCL-based cleaning and disinfection protocols are increasingly adopted for real-world applications.
As part of an enhanced hygiene procedures, many segments of the economy have instituted vigorous personal sanitization protocols. These include areas where many individuals congregate, and there’s a significantly higher risk of virus or bacterial transmissions. They may include:
- Eateries and diners
- Gyms and pools
- Food and produce manufacturing plants
- Movie theatres and sports venues
- Hospitals, hospices, and senior care centers
At 100- to 200 PPM concentrate, Hocl-based disinfectants are proven highly predictable and efficacious in disabling germs and viruses on the hand and other areas of the body. Better yet, because it is non-irritant, the unlimited supply of antimicrobial handwash produced by an on-premises hocl generator machine poses no risk of skin rash or breakouts for school-age kids or vulnerable seniors.
Research indicates that germs, bacteria, and viruses, including the coronavirus “…can persist on inanimate surfaces like metal, glass or plastic for up to 9 days…”. This fact heightens the risk of surface-to-human, and subsequently human-to-human transmissions, triggering mass outbreaks. Experts recommend rigorous surface disinfection is the best way to prevent such outbreaks.
Some places, where surface-to-human transmissions may subsequently lead to higher incidents of human-to-human contagion, include:
- Hotels, restaurants, bars, and take-out kitchens
- Parks and recreation places
- Cruise Ships, Trains and Airliners
- Assisted living homes
Large-scale disinfecting and sanitization of these areas may either be extremely challenging, or might be cost-prohibitive to implement. And there’s where an in-house electrolyzed water machine is most effective. Research, on the effects of various surface disinfection protocols shows that surfaces, cleaned and disinfected using an HOCI fogger, had significantly lower bacterial counts compared with those cleaned and sanitized using quaternary ammonium compounds.
SANITIZATION IN MEDICAL PRACTICES
One of the most prolific uses of sanitizers are medical practitioners. These settings heighten the infection risks because, not only are patients vulnerable to the effects of infection they carry, but they also risk getting infected by staff, visitors, and other patients – and vice versa. Research confirms that disinfection, using electrolyzed water, is far more potent that compared with sanitizers based on sodium hypochlorite and chlorhexidine.
Areas, such as:
- Walk-in clinics
- First-aid stations on cruise liners, recreational boats, fairs, and exhibition centers
- Nursing stations in manufacturing plants, ad industrial complexes
can significantly benefit from having an in-house hocl generator machine that produces safe, non-irritant disinfectant in unlimited quantities.
No Rocket Science
There’s no rocket science behind electrolyzed water. Although the HOCL generator uses cutting-edge technology, the science behind is simple: Water + Salt + Electricity = Highly potent Disinfectant! These devices are convenient to install and extremely cost-effective to operate. That’s why they are now the number-one disinfection and sanitization method of choice.
