Hypochlorous acid is the key active compound in PCT’s disinfectant product. As this powerful fluid gains attention across industries for its surprising effectiveness against some of today’s most concerning pathogens, including C. diff, MRSA, and different norovirus strains, more and more environmental services departments are switching to hypochlorous acid (HOCl) from more toxic, chemical-based alternatives.
HOCl is a compound that occurs naturally in the human body, and is a key component of the immune system’s defense against disease. The process of water electrolysis, which applies an electrical charge to a solution of water and sodium chloride, produces a catholyte solution (containing HOCl) and an anolyte solution, which is effective as a sanitizing agent. The catholyte solution uses free active chlorine and its unique properties to quickly attack and kill pathogens on hard, nonporous surfaces. Using PCT’s on site generator to produce these fluids maximizes their value and accessibility.
