Ecolyte Meat & Seafood Disinfectant


Ecolyte+ Water Disinfection

The Ecolyte+ 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 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.

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.

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.

Electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid eliminates common microbial contaminants:

  • Adenovirus
  • Aeromonas
  • Caliciviruses (including Norovirus)
  • Campylobacter jejuni
  • Enterovirus (including polioviruses, coxsakieviruses, and echoviruses)
  • Escherichia coli (O157)
  • Helicobacter pylori
  • Hepatitis A
  • Legionella pneumophilia
  • Listeria monocytogenes
  • Mycobacterium avium
  • Plesiomonas
  • Salmonella enterica
  • Shigella sonnei
  • Vibrio species

What about EPA regulation?

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.

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.

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 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.
