Overview: Hypochlorous acid generator is a device that produces sterilizing and disinfecting solution. It uses sodium chloride and/or hydrochloric acid solution as raw materials, and electrolyzes sodium chloride and/or hydrochloric acid solution in an electrolytic cell with or without a diaphragm to produce an acidic aqueous solution (pH 5.0-6.5) with hypochlorous acid as the main sterilizing component.

Name: Chinese Name: Hypochlorous Acid Generator (Slightly Acidic Electrolyzed Water Generator) English Name: Szenerator of Slightly Acidic Electrolyzed Water

Equipment Features: The hypochlorous acid generator uses sodium chloride and/or hydrochloric acid solution as raw materials, automatically proportions the raw materials in the electrolytic cell, and produces hypochlorous acid water by electrolysis.

The hypochlorous acid water obtained by electrolysis through the hypochlorous acid generator has the advantages of high bactericidal rate, wide bactericidal spectrum, and safety and environmental protection.

The equipment has high utilization rate of raw materials, high current efficiency in the electrolysis process, large production of hypochlorous acid, low energy consumption, and low comprehensive production cost.

Working Principle: Low-concentration hydrochloric acid and/or sodium chloride solution are added to softened water. After electrolysis in an electrolytic cell with or without a diaphragm, an acidic aqueous solution with hypochlorous acid as the main sterilizing component (pH 5.0~6.5) is generated.

The principle of hypochlorous acid generator is to add a proper amount of low-concentration hydrochloric acid and/or sodium chloride solution into an electrolytic cell with or without a diaphragm. Through electrolysis, chlorine gas and H+ are generated at the anode. H+ dissolves in water to form acidity with a pH value of 5.0~6.5. Chlorine gas reacts with water to generate hydrochloric acid and hypochlorous acid (HCIO), while hydrogen gas is generated at the cathode.

Reaction Equations:

Cl-→1/2Cl2 + e-

Cl2 + H2O ⇆ HCIO + H+ + Cl-

H++e-→1/2H2

Applications:

Suitable for disinfection of hands, skin, and mucous membranes. Disinfection of tableware, food processing equipment, livestock and poultry farms, and fruits and vegetables. Disinfection of general object surfaces and environmental surfaces, and disinfection of textile items. Disinfection of dental unit waterlines, pet sterilization and deodorization, garbage deodorization, etc. Other application areas are determined according to product manuals and product hygiene safety assessment reports.

The market of hypochlorous acid generators in China has a certain development history. In recent years, the industry has been in a stage of rapid development, especially with the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. the hypochlorous acid generator industry has experienced a concentrated explosive growth trend. It has gradually formed a competitive pattern with domestic brands as the mainstay and foreign brands as the supplement. Domestic consumers have gradually established brand awareness and recognition of hypochlorous acid generators, and have gradually formed the current almost industry-recognized national top ten brands of hypochlorous acid generators. Now let's reveal the current national top ten brands of hypochlorous acid generators:
