Cleaning Industry Uses for ECAS Chemistry

Cleaning Industry

Lower Chemical Cost

Eliminate your expensive chemical deliveries with an ECAS Generator installed right in your facility. The monthly equipment rental fee will likely be significantly lower than you are paying for chemicals on a monthly basis. Made fresh onsite.

Common uses for the cleaner and sanitizer/disinfectant solutions in the industry can be found in our Frequently Asked Questions.

Simple, Less Toxic and Green

The  cleaner and sanitizer/disinfectant solutions are dispensed ready to use. Just press a button. No mixing needed. Friendly to Humans and the Earth.

Interesting fact: The very same hypochlorous chemistry is produced naturally in our own bodies; it’s actually hypochlorous acid that our white blood cells use to fight infection.

The solutions are very effective yet less irritating and biodegradable. This is due to the saltwater electrolysis method of producing the solutions which are made on-site and ready to use. Harsh chemical stabilizers commonly used for transport of chemicals are not needed. Specifically for the  sanitizer/disinfectant with its hypochlorous chemistry, humans and animals are very tolerant. The pH is a near neutral 6.5.


Testimonial: Five years and 40,000+ patrons a week took its toll on the carpet in the main entry to our Rec Center. Every cleaning just meant more soil left unextracted and a dingier appearance. Nothing worked; extractors, bonnets, steam cleanings, heavy duty spotters . . . The catholyte changed everything and made believers of us all! The ECAS has already paid for itself by extending the life of the carpet. Thanks for two great products from one machine! See the Results

About the Chemistry

Saltwater Biocides equipment generates Hypochlorous Acid sanitizer/disinfectant from an On-Site Pesticidal Device with an EPA Establishment Number of 88942-WA-001.

Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl):

  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • E. coli O157:H7
  • Salmonella Enteritidis
  • Salmonella Typhimurium
  • Listeria monocytogenes
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  • Campylobacter jejuni
  • Swine Influenza Virus: H1N1

Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH):

Sodium hydroxide is used as an industrial cleaning agent where it is often called “caustic”. It can dissolve grease, oils, fats and protein-based deposits. A sodium hydroxide soak solution is used as a powerful degreaser on stainless steel and glass bakeware. It is dispensed at 12pH for cleaning/degreasing or at 10.5pH for carpet cleaning.
