Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant
What is Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution
Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant is electrolytically generated Pure Electrolyzed Water (HOCI). HOCI 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. HOCI kills bacteria, bacterial spores, and viruses 100 times more effectively than chlorine bleach.
How does it work?
Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution is a powerful oxidant (800 to 1200 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.
Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution has been Approved by the ESMA for no-rinse sanitation of Meat and seafood.
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 E.coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Vibrio,
Staphylococcus, MRSA, spore forming bacteria, and many common viruses (including Norovirus) and fungi.
What about regulation from ESMA,?
We have pages dedicated to the regulation of Pure Electrolyzed Water as it pertains to the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA). Please visit our pages for more information.
Fish & Seafood Plant Sanitation
Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution is an ideal antimicrobial for fish and seafood processors. Proper sanitation of the food processing environment is paramount to keeping the initial microbial load to a minimum. Our product can control microbial load and has the added benefits of being non-toxic, non-hazardous, and non-irritant. As an antimicrobial, it can replace nearly all chemical sanitizers. it is also highly biocidal yet leaves no chemical residues or chemical odors. No potable water post-rinse is required. Also, satisfies the demand for implementing safer and more natural food products.
Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution has many applications in fish and seafood processing:
Fish & Seafood Harvest
Seafood contamination occurs naturally from the environment where fish are harvested. Microbial pathogens and spoilage organisms can expediate the decomposition of fish. By placing fresh catches into electrolyzed sanitation water, microbial organisms can be kept at low levels, keeping the catch fresh and prolonging the shelf-life.
Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution is all natural and safe. It can be used to generate sanitized ice for storing fish and seafood.
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is a safe and effective antimicrobial for food contact surfaces and equipment. No post-rinse with potable water is required.
Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution can be used to sanitize contact surfaces, floors, and bathrooms. It can replace chemical sanitizers such as quats, peroxide, and bleach. It does not cause discoloration as seen with chlorine bleach.
Direct Sanitation of Fish & Seafood
When fish are filleted, deboned, packaged and frozen, before distribution, exposure of the fish to water constitutes one of the critical steps that must be optimally controlled in order to prevent the introduction of pathogens. The water used in the processing of fish needs to be clean with minimal levels of spoilage organisms and free of pathogens. Cross contamination may occur during food processing where bacteria are transferred from raw fish and/or contaminated surfaces to hygienically safe fish and seafood. Sanitizing seafood with EOW helps prevent cross contamination and satisfies the demand for implementing safer and more natural food sanitation without adversely affecting food quality. There are no chemical residues, no odors, and no changes in taste or color. No post-rinse is required.
Sanitized Ice for Transport and Storage
Sanitized ice can be generated with Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution. Sanitized ice can be used in the transport and storage of seafood to maintain freshness. Sanitize ice made with Pure Electrolyzed Water halts the growth of microbial organisms.
Pressure Spraying and Fogging
When cleaning and sanitizing contact surfaces, tools, equipment or large open areas, Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution can be appied via pressure sprayers or foggers. The active molecule in Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution is hypochlorous acid, a powerful oxidant that is stable in solution. Hypochlorous acid is approved by the ESMA for use on food contact surfaces at concentrations as high as 200 ppm. Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution is highly effective at inactivating microbial pathogens when making contact in liquid form.
Eliminating Chemicals and Employee Safety
Ecolyte+ 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 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.
Ecolyte+ Water Disinfection
The Ecolyte+ 1200 Electrolyzer can disinfect water on-site and on-demand from just salt, water, and electricity.
Electrolytically generated Pure Electrolyzed Water is 100 times more effective at disinfecting process water than chlorine bleach and no post-rinse is required. Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant Solution is ESMA Approved for use in process water for fish and seafood.
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 Ecolyte+ generates a mixed oxidant solution primarily composed of Pure Electrolyzed Water (HOCl) but also other powerful oxidants such as ozone and chlorine dioxide. Pure Electrolyzed Water 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 Pure Electrolyzed Water for disinfection. Nearly every common bacteria has been studied as well as viruses and fungi.
What about EPA regulation?
Because electrolytically generated Pure Electrolyzed Water 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.
Electrolytically generated Pure Electrolyzed Water does not leave any residuals or odors and does not alter taste or color of fish and seafood.
Ecolyte+ electrolyzers generate a powerful mixed oxidant solution that inactivate microbial pathogens by damaging their cell walls and disrupting their internal proteins, lipids, and DNA. To learn more please visit our research page.
Inactivating Microbial Contaminants
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.
Pure Electrolyzed Water composed of mixed oxidants and 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.
Ecolyte+ electrolyzers eliminate the need for purchasing, transporting, storing, and preparing of toxic concentrated chemicals and can meet all the water disinfection needs of a processing plant by on-site generation. Fish and seafood processors can switch to an environmentally friendly technology while saving time, space, and money.
