FAQ

the most popular questions

Q: What is ECEwaters?

A: ECE stands for Electro-Chemical Energized. It is also known as ECA (Electro-Chemical Activation).

ECA is a patented technology first invented in Russia and has been under development for over 40 years.
The activation process uses water, salt and electricity and produces a potent and natural disinfectant and detergent.

Q: How does ECEwaters work?

A: Microbes, like other living things need a stable energy supply to survive. ECA destabilises and elevates the electrical charge (Oxidation Reduction Potential or ORP) of the water and creates an environment in which microbes cannot survive.
The energy difference between ECA (+900) water and tap water (+200mV) will kill 1 million E.coli in 30 seconds.

Q: How effective is ECEwaters on microbes?

A: Aside from effective control of common food spoilage organisms ECA is equally effective against 99,99999999% of dangerous human pathogens which include but are not limited to: Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp and E. coli 0157. Further studies on Bacillus spores, Clostridia, Vibrio cholera and Hepatitis viruses etc. have achieved equivalent results.

Q: Where and how is ECEwaters used?

A: ECE is universally effective and presents an unchallenged safety profile, it can be applied in all food and beverage environments as well as a water treatment remedy.

Ongoing research, started in the 1970’s has refined a variety of critical application methods in support of good manufacturing practice.

Q: Will ECAwaters control biofilm?

A: Yes. Biofilm is universally recognized as the primary source of process recontamination. By using continuous dosing, ECA’s unstable micro-electrical charge removes established biofilm and prevents regrowth.

ECA can be applied during food production and as such guarantees safe, continuous disinfection of the process and product.

Q: ECEwaters works the same as the Human Immune System?

A: When the body comes under attack from invading bacteria and viruses, the immune system immediately responds. The body sends increased numbers of a specific white blood cell called a Neutrophil straight to the invasion site.

Once activated, these cells produce large amounts of a mixed oxidant solution which is effective in eliminating invading microbes and pathogens.

The oxidant produced by the white blood cells Hypochlorous acid or (HOCl) is amongst the most potent natural disinfectants. It is non-toxic to humans, and is highly effective as an antimicrobial agent with rapid action.

HOCl is generated under specific electro-chemical conditions using a combination of water, salt (NaCl) and electricity. By using our specialized hygiene generators ECEwaters are able to produce HOCl of the highest quality and efficacy, liter after liter. HOCI is extremely effective at eliminating all pathogens and food spoilage microbes including spores.
