Safety Data Sheets
Hydrolyte® is a member of a family of dilute mixtures of oxychlorine compounds that is produced from weak salt water in the anode chamber of the Hydrolyte® electrolytic cell.
Hydrolyte® from Salt Water
The Hydrolyte® electrolytic cell has been specifically engineered to utilize a technology known as electro-chemical activation to convert a 3 g/l (0.3%) to 7 g/l (0.7%) aqueous solution of sodium chloride into an effective disinfectant and sanitizer.
Sea water typically contains 27 g/l (2.7%) of sodium chloride and a typical IV drip administered in a hospital is about 9 g/l (0.9%), so the concentration of sodium chloride in the “brine” used to produce Hydrolyte® may be classified as a weak aqueous solution of sodium chloride.
Composition of Hydrolyte®
Hydrolyte® produce from 7 g/l sodium chloride solution contains 99.3% water, with the remaining 0.7% of the solution being sodium chloride salt. Because Hydrolyte® equipment is designed to be able to precisely control the pH of the Hydrolyte® produced, Hydrolyte® generated at 6.5 pH contains free available chlorine mostly (92%) in the form of hypochlorous acid. Hydrolyte® achieves its efficacy against unwanted microorganisms with as little .046% hypochlorous acid.
Efficacy of Hydrolyte®
Hydrolyte® has been proven effective against a broad range of bacteria, mycobacterium and viruses. It is highly effective against Clostridium difficile. The method of killing unwanted microorganisms is accomplished through the physical destruction of the cell structure, bursting the cell’s membrane and disrupting the cell’s DNA. This type of lethal cell action does not allow the microorganisms to become “adaptive” to Hydrolyte® or form resistant strains which can survive treatment.
