Greenhouse and Produce Sanitation Solved

SKU: E-240S

The EcoloxTech 240 Sanitizer is a compact, low-maintenance, single stream system that generates hypochlorous acid (HOCl) in solution through the electrolysis of salt and water. The system uses patented electrolysis cells that are unique in that they generate a stable HOCl molecule that is electrically neutral and with high oxidation potential (>800 mV), contributing to its effectiveness against microbial pathogens. Because it uses non-membrane electroysis, there are no hazardous alkaline residuals, as produced by nearly all competing systems.

Regulatory Agencies

FDA

EcoloxTech has obtained a Food Contact Notification (FCN) 1811 from the FDA for using electrolyzed water as an antimicrobial agent in an aqueous solution in the production and preparation of whole or cut meat and poultry; processed and preformed meat and poultry; fish and seafood; fruits and vegetables; and shell eggs. A potable water rinse is not required after use. For more details, click hereto view the letter from the FDA.

On June 9, 2014, the National Organic Program (NOP) published a policy memorandum (PM 14-3) on the status of electrolyzed water under the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic regulations at 7 CFR Part 205. Following the release of PM 14-3, stakeholders provided additional technical and regulatory information on electrolyzed water to the NOP. Chlorine materials are allowed to be used in organic production and handling. The National Organic Program (NOP) Handbook includes guidance (NOP 5026) The Use of Chlorine Materials in Organic Production and Handling. This guidance clarifies the allowable uses of chlorine products under the USDA organic regulations. Chlorine materials are included on the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances (National List). In water, chlorine materials such as calcium and sodium hypochlorite form an equilibrium of related chlorine species, including hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and hypochlorite (ClO- ). Similar chlorine species are formed in the generation of electrolyzed water. Accordingly, the NOP considers hypochlorous acid generated by electrolyzed water to be an allowable type of chlorine material.

Hypochlorous Acid: Click Here

Hypochlorous Acid may be applied to food-contact surfaces in public eating places, dairy-processing equipment, and food-processing equipment and utensils. When ready for use, the end-use concentration of all hypochlorous acid chemicals in the solution is not to exceed 200 ppm determined as total available chlorine.

Excerpt from CDC

The microbicidal activity of chlorine is attributed largely to undissociated hypochlorous acid (HOCl).

The microbicidal activity of a new disinfectant, “superoxidized water,” has been examined The concept of electrolyzing saline to create a disinfectant or antiseptics is appealing because the basic materials of saline and electricity are inexpensive and the end product (i.e., water) does not damage the environment. The main products of this water are hypochlorous acid (e.g., at a concentration of about 144 mg/L) and chlorine. As with any germicide, the antimicrobial activity of superoxidized water is strongly affected by the concentration of the active ingredient (available free chlorine) 536. One manufacturer generates the disinfectant at the point of use by passing a saline solution over coated titanium electrodes at 9 amps. The product generated has a pH of 5.0-6.5 and an oxidation-reduction potential (redox) of >950 mV. Although superoxidized water is intended to be generated fresh at the point of use, when tested under clean conditions the disinfectant was effective within 5 minutes when 48 hours old.

In October 2002, the FDA cleared superoxidized water as a high-level disinfectant (FDA, personal communication, September 18, 2002).

“Superoxidized water” has been tested against bacteria, mycobacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores. Freshly generated superoxidized water is rapidly effective (<2 minutes) in achieving a 5-log10 reduction of pathogenic microorganisms (i.e., M. tuberculosis, M. chelonae, poliovirus, HIV, multidrugresistant S. aureus, E. coli, Candida albicans, Enterococcus faecalis, P. aeruginosa) in the absence of organic loading. However, the biocidal activity of this disinfectant decreased substantially in the presence of organic material (e.g., 5% horse serum) 537, 549, 550. No bacteria or viruses were detected on artificially contaminated endoscopes after a 5-minute exposure to superoxidized water 551 and HBV-DNA was not detected from any endoscope experimentally contaminated with HBV-positive mixed sera after a disinfectant exposure time of 7 minutes.
