On-Site and On-Demand
EWCO systems are compact and easy to install. Systems are designed to generate Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water on-site and on-demand from an additive made yourself with just table salt and water.
What is Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water?
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid
), a neutral-to-acidic electrolyzed water. HOCl
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.
kills bacteria, bacterial spores, and viruses 100 times more effectively than chlorine bleach.
How does it work?
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is a powerful oxidant (800 to 1000 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.
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
, spore forming bacteria
viruses (including Norovirus)

What about regulation from FDA, USDA, and EPA?
We have pages dedicated to the regulation of electrolyzed water as it pertains to the

Surgery Center Sanitation
Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water (EOW) is an ideal antimicrobial for surgery centers because it is safe, all-natural, and effective.
EOW does not cause skin or respiratory irritation and satisfies the demand for implementing safer and more natural alternatives to toxic chemicals.
EOW is a solution of mixed oxidants of which the primary oxidant is eletrolytically generated hypochlorous acid
), an antimicrobial that has been recognized by the CDC in their guidelines for disinfection and sterilization.
Being that hypochlorous acid
is a strong oxidant that is stable in solution, it can be applied through many applications, either directly, through spray bottles, or fogging.
EOW can be used to sanitize all contact surfaces in a surgery center including patient beds, chairs, medical equipment and instruments, nursing stations, surgery rooms, floors, and bathrooms.
EOW can replace chemicals such as chlorine bleach and quatenary ammoniums (Quats).
Not only is electrolyzed sanitation water safe and all-natural, but it is more effective than the chemicals currently being used.
- 100 times more biocidal than chlorine bleach
- Effective against G+ and G- bacteria
