HOCl is particularly effective against all known pathogens. Disinfection tests have confirmed the disinfection capabilities of electrolyzed water produced through the electrolysis of a solution of sodium chloride and conditioned water when a membrane is positioned between two electrodes. One of the main products is known as Hypochlorous acid which is about 50 times more effective a sanitizer than hypochlorite.
The use of HOCL water simultaneously with UV light from UV light emitting LEDs effectively neutralizes, sanitizes and sterilizes the air eliminating transmission of pathogens affecting the health of plants and humans. Even by itself direct UV Irradiation is a well-established and highly effective at killing bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
Crowded spaces and increasing global travel leads to potential epidemics like MERS in Korea and middle east and Ebola in Africa. Diseases can be spread by aerosols expelled from the mouth and nose, and expiratory aerosols contain microorganisms the may remain airborne for extended periods. Diseases such as Influenza, MERS and SARS are a concern because they demonstrate that pathogens with unpredictable contagion and lethality may emerge suddenly. Ebola can be transmitted through airborne saliva particles, as well as direct contact. Removal and sterilization of pathogens from the air will reduce infection and transmission risks.
Key to the effectiveness of this product is the ability to mist or spray using ionizing electrostatic foggers and sprayers and irrigation nozzles that allow complete penetration into and around all surfaces equipment as well as walls and all surfaces.
