Using Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) in poultry operations, including broiler houses, slaughterhouses, chillers, and other processing areas, brings numerous benefits that can significantly improve both the efficiency and safety of these environments

HOCL is a powerful disinfectant known for its efficacy in killing bacteria, viruses, and fungi, making it an ideal choice for the rigorous demands of poultry production and processing


Effective Pathogen Control


HOCL is highly effective at eliminating a wide range of pathogens, including Salmonella, Listeria, and E. coli, which are of particular concern in poultry operations

Its ability to rapidly disinfect surfaces and equipment helps insignificantly reducing the risk of cross-contamination and infection spread.


Safety for Animals and Workers


Unlike many chemical disinfectants that can pose health risks to both animals and humans, HOCL is non-toxic and safe to use around workers and livestock

It doesn’t produce harmful residues or fumes, ensuring a safer environment for everyone involved in the operation


Environmentally Friendly


HOCL breaks down into simple, non-toxic components (salt and water), making it an environmentally responsible choice

This characteristic is especially important in agricultural operations, where runoff and waste management are key environmental concerns


Enhances Product Quality and Shelf Life


By effectively reducing microbial loads on poultry products, HOCL helps in enhancing the overall quality and safety of the meat

This not only meets regulatory standards but can also extend the shelf life of poultry products, providing a direct benefit to both producers and consumers



Cost-Effective and Efficient


HOCL can be generated on-site using electrolyzed water systems, which can be more cost-effective than purchasing and storing traditional


Additionally, HOCL solutions are effective at lowerconcentrations and require shorter contact times,increasing operational efficiency.


Versatility in Application


HOCL can be used in various stages of poultry production and processing, from disinfecting drinking water for birds to sanitizing equipment and surfaces in processing areas

Its versatility also extends to different application methods, such as fogging, spraying, or direct application, allowing for comprehensive and efficient disinfection routines.


Reduces Antibiotic Use


By effectively controlling pathogens in the poultry environment, HOCL helps in reducing the need for antibiotics, which is a significant benefit in the context of antibiotic resistance concerns

This aligns with consumer demand for more naturally raised poultry and can be a strong marketing point.


Improves Air Quality


When used in broiler houses and other poultry facilities, HOCL can help in reducing odors and improving air quality.


This not only creates a more pleasant and healthier work environment but also contributes to better living conditions for the poultry, which can positively impact their growth and health.


EcoloxTech HOCL 200 is an EPA-Registered Disinfectant with Registration number 101112-1





In past trials, HOCL improved food conversion ratios, increased flock weight, and reduced mortality, showcasing its efficacy in enhancing overall poultry production efficiency.

Incorporating HOCL into poultry operations offers a wide array of benefits, from enhancing biosecurity and product quality to ensuring environmental sustainability and operational efficiency.

Its safety profile, combined with its effectiveness against pathogens, makes HOCL an invaluable tool in modern poultry production and processing
