HOCL is synonymous with infection control


Compared to hypochlorite ions (OCL-), hypochlorous acid (HOCL) kills microorganisms faster and is 50-100 times more effective.

HOCL is the effective disinfection agent

Rather than think of the 5.25% chemical concentration of bleach, think of it as 94.75% water.  When diluted, bleach becomes 99.998% water with only 0.002% (20 ppm) chemical concentration.

AX-525 with 0.0525% HOCL has 525 ppm HOCL

AX-275 with 0.0275% HOCL has 275 ppm HOCL

BLEACH with <0.0002% HOCL has <20 ppm HOCL

The disinfecting level of hypochlorous acid (HOCL) in AquaoxTM AX-275 “electrolyzed water” -Øis capable of killing bacteria (cidal activity) 50 to 100 times that of household bleach –Øaddresses the growing resistance to chemical terminal cleaning agents -Øis an efficient disinfecting adjunct to standard terminal cleaning … and -Øoptimizes infection prevention in hospital environments.

As a disinfectant, hypochlorous acid (HOCL), is much stronger and more reactive than hypochlorite ions (OCL-) because hypochlorous acid (HOCL) splits into hydrochloric acid (HCl) and an oxygen atom – also a powerful disinfectant.

The electrically neutral hypochlorous acid (HOCL) ion easily penetrates pathogenic microorganism cell walls, slime layers and other microorganism protective layers to make the cells die or suffer from reproductive failures.

Conversely, the pathogenic microorganism cell wall is negatively charged by nature … and thus repulses negativelycharged hypochlorite ions (OCL-).

Hypochlorous Acid

Guarantees Optimal Disinfection

At 6.5 pH, AQUAOX™ produces hypochlorous acid (HOCL) that is 90% Free Available Chlorine (FAC) and only 10% hypochlorite ion (OCL-), which does not gas off in the form of chlorine (CL2).

Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) combines with the oxidizing power of oxygen to optimize the disinfection properties of chlorine (CL2) in water (H2O).

Compressed air is used to electrostatically spray/ disperse micro-droplets of HOCL (and Oxygen) at precisely the optimum pH level for disinfection (6.0-6.5).

When comparing the disinfecting power of bleach to Aquaox AX-275 (275 ppm HOCL), the Aquaox solution is far more effective than undiluted bleach (12 pH), which has 52,500-60,000 ppm, but <20 ppm (0.0002% HOCL) of Free Available Chlorine (FAC) … or no disinfecting power.

FACT:  To improve cleaning and disinfecting capability, Aquaox’s proprietary Electrochemical Activated Water generation system introduces nanobubbles into the electrolyzed solution to greatly increase bioactivity, area-to-volume surface ratio and decrease the viscosity and surface tension.  Nanobubbles further explain why Aquaox electrolyzed solutions are actually 80-300 times more effective than 200 ppm diluted bleach.

When bottled, Aquaox nanobubbles stay submerged, with no off-gassing, for at least 24 months.

Bleach is toxic, corrosive, irritates skin/eyes/respiratory, destroys metal, burns holes in and discolors clothing.

Aquaox solutions do none of these.

THE STATEMENT:  The general public fears hospitalization and contracting superbugs.  It is completely reasonable to assure room disinfection to the best of our current technological availabilities.

THE QUESTION:  Do you want bleach (or even ‘green’ chemicals) in your face … or do you prefer odorless, safe and healthy Aquaox solutions that are highly effective disinfecting solutions and revert to ordinary water for safe discharge into the environment?

Given the choice, would your employees, customers, members, patients, students, athletes choose to have chemicals in their environment?  The socially conscious decision is yours.

Adding Aquaox’s proprietary ADJUNCT disinfecting step within the Hospital protocol is effective, cost-efficient, quick, safe and actually reduces training time, labor hours and room turnover time for (all) patient care rooms . . . with the significant bonus of substantially improving patient satisfaction scores.

Be ahead of the curve; adopt the Aquaox Infection Control SystemTM to move your organization into a competitive advantage.
