Electrolyzed Water approved in CIP cleaning

ATLANTA, Sept. 15 , 2009

EAU Technologies Inc., a leading provider of electrolyzed water for high-volume, business-to-business applications, announced today that the company has completed a trial with a leading international beverage bottling company enabling the approval of the use of electrolyzed water technology as a sanitation process for CIP (Clean-in-Place) applications. EAU’s Electrolyzed Water  is an effective, environmentally friendly solution for Clean-in-Place (CIP) applications for industrial use. CIP applications are used in the food industry to clean stationary equipment during a product changeover and system start-up.

EAU began the extensive trial last fall with the goal of demonstrating that an ambient temperature solution, EAU’s Electrolyzed Water, is an effective sanitation process for CIP applications. As part of the test, Electrolyzed Water was used to clean and sanitize filling equipment and in product changeover applications. The rigorous and methodical testing included verification of cleaning efficacy, effectiveness for eliminating taste carryover, environmental safety, as well as financial enhancement with regards to improved CIP times and potential water and energy savings.

Electrolyzed Water is created by combining salt and potable water with an electrical charge. EAU generators create two streams of Electrolyzed Water. Alkaline Water (AW)/Catholyte is an effective cleaning fluid used as a replacement for caustic surfactants and cleaners. Acidic Electrolyzed Water (AEW)/Anolyte  is stabilized, non-toxic, acidic water effective at killing pathogens during the sanitation process. The active ingredient in EAW is Hypochlorous Acid, one of the same chemicals a human body creates to fight off sickness.

Results showed Electrolyzed Water was able to maintain, and in some cases improve, current cleaning and sanitizing efficacy, minimizing the use of commercial chemicals while complying with microbiological integrity and sensory testing requirements. Testing also identified water and energy consumption savings and time savings which reduced bottling production line down-time.

“We strongly believe that EAU’s non-toxic, ambient temperature Electrolyzed Water can effectively replace the current CIP process eliminating the need for harsh chemicals and large quantities of hot water,” said Wade Bradley, CEO of EAU Technologies. “The trials confirmed our expectations that Electrolyzed Water has excellent antimicrobial efficacy, creating a cleaner, safer work environment, while identifying cost savings through lower water usage, reduced energy costs and time savings.”

With the efficacy testing completed, EAU Technologies is now exploring opportunities to utilize its Electrolyzed Water technology within the CIP arena.

EAU Technologies, Inc.  is a supplier of Electrolyzed Water Technology and other complementary technologies with applications in diverse industries. EAU’s water-based and non-toxic solutions (at application concentration, the solutions are non-toxic to humans and live animals) may replace many of the traditional methods now used to clean, disinfect and nourish in large industries such as agriculture and food processing. EAU has solutions for existing bacteria, virus and mold proliferation threats. EAU continues to add innovative and efficacious products that offer a systemic approach to pathogen elimination in food processing plants and related industries, thereby producing safer foods while protecting the environment through “Green Technology.” EAU has developed patent pending systems that are being used on dairies to process drinking water for dairy herds. Studies and trials are showing promising results at improving animal digestion which shows signs of improved animal health and production. EAU uses terms like “green”, “natural”, “non-toxic” and “organic” based on our NAMSA studies that show no toxicity or cytotoxicity at levels as high as 70 ppm of HOCl. Electrolytically generated HOCl has been shown to be up to 80 times more effective at disinfecting than typically used Chlorine, depending on the type of organism and the amount present. EAU uses only water, food grade electrolytes and electricity to create all of its solutions. The active ingredients in the solutions EAU creates through electrolysis are GRAS (generally regarded as safe) approved and/or safe around humans and animals at suggested application levels.
