Sanitation of breweries


When brewing, one of the most important things a brewer have to do is assure the equipment and facility they are using is as sterile as possible. Nothing is more devastating than having to scrap an entire batch because bacteria and microbes have spoiled a batch.
Throughout the history of brewing, a variety of chemicals and processes is being used to mitigate the exposure of contaminants. Many of those chemicals that are being used are caustic, and downright dangerous if not handled correctly. Residuals may taint the brew and change color, taste, and even stability. Ecolox has the answer. Ecolox is a sanitizer that you make on demand.

Ecolox or Neutral Electrolyzed Water is the result of a process known as electrolysis. Although it seems remarkable, it is fairly simple chemistry. Tap water is passed into a chamber that contains multiple chambers some with a positive electrical, the others with a negative charge. The total charge is between is very low.

Chloride ions are migrated into the positively charged chambers as sodium ions are migrated into the chamber with the negative charge. In the positively charged chamber, chloride ions, which are naturally negatively charged, are attracted to the positive charge and are converted to HOCl or hypochlorous acid at a pH between 6 and 7.

In the negatively charged chamber, sodium ions, which are naturally positively charged, are attracted to the negative charge and are converted into sodium hydroxide at a pH of between 11.5 and 12.5. The hypochlorous acid is a powerful sanitizer; the sodium hydroxide is a grease cutter and detergent.

The Ecolox technology converts ordinary tap water into a very efficient disinfectant with mild cleaning properties.  the solution is a disinfectant and cleaner known as hypochlorous acid which has been clinically proven to be 200% more powerful at 80 ppm than chlorine bleach at 300 ppm.

The most interesting part of this technology is you make it on-site, when and where you need it for only fraction of the price of chlorine.

We would be happy to talk to you about this innovation and how it can save you and your organization time, money, and frustration.
