Strongly Acidic “DENKAISUI” Electrolyzed Water Generator

What is the Strongly Acidic “DENKAISUI” Electrolyzed Water ?
It is a strong acid solution made from ordinary tap water and a specific amount of salt, generated on the principle of electrolysis. Electrolysis is a process in which a chemical component dissolved in water is decomposed into constituents when an electric current is passed through the electrodes (i.e. conductors at the end of the circuit) placed in the water. Then, constituents gather separately at either of the electrodes. A diaphragm is placed in the electrolytic cylinder, so that strong acid water is generated on the anode side and strong alkali water on the cathode side. The Strongly Acidic “DENKAISUI” Electrolyzed Water has the following three major characteristics, which complement one another to achieve effective cleansing.

1) Very low pH
The pH value is very low (below 2.7), and the water exhibits high efficiency against strong acids.
2) High oxidation reduction potential
High oxidation reduction potential (+1000mV to +1200mV) prevents microbes from growing.
3) Appropriate dissolved chlorine
It safely contains chlorine (10 to 60ppm), to work effectively to give microbes a fetal blow.

Wide Antibacterial Spectrum
The antibacterial spectrum is wide, and the water is effective against various bacteria including MRSA, spores, fungi, acid-fast bacteria and viruses, making it an ideal disinfectant for various applications.

Regulatory approvals
The Strongly Acidic “DENKAISUI” Electrolyzed Water has a wide range of application. As a means to prevent nosocomial infection, it is effectively used to clean hands, to eliminate bacteria from medical instruments and to clean floors, walls and furniture. It ensures effective bacteria elimination and safety in cleaning dialyzers with much less nursing time. It calls much attention as disinfectant water for cleansing endoscopes, too.
Model OXILYZER OCEAN CL has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). OXILYZER's primary model OXM-01A meets with the regulatory approval of Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare as a medical device under the pharmaceutical affairs law (Approval No. : 20900BZZ00375000)

High Safety
Unlike other chemicals, this water does not create insensible bacillus. The special electrodes do not generate ozone-depending emissions. No chlorine remains in the water after chemical reaction with organic compounds.

Friendly to a Human Body
Although this water is strongly acidic, it does not cause chapped hands. So, it can be safely used for disinfecting hands and fingers

Low Running Cost
Costing 0.6Japanese Yen only per liter by feeding a little of salt and tap water.
