Fish industry


Food safety is one of the highest concern to food producers and consumers but the number of reported cases of food poisoning is on the increase despite enforced regulations and sophisticated management systems.

Escalating microbial resistance to chemical biocides used in processing plants and a growing demand for higher volumes of products for a burgeoning world population have dramatically impacted manufacturers and their quality assurance strategies.

The use of AQUAOX™ ECA generated Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) offers food producers a safe, cost effective alternative to current cleaning and sanitation products. HOCL is a productivity and profitability enhancing quality assurance tool for the optimization of food processing plants.


        The fish processing industry constantly strives to reduce contamination from bacteria, spores, viruses, fungi, yeast and mould.

        EW can be used for the following applications:

        • Disinfection of production areas
        • Decontamination/Disinfection of process water. 
        • Cleaning-In-Place (CIP), of process plant and equipment, including pots, tanks, centrifuges, pumps, piping, filters, filler heads, pasteurizers and general surfaces.
        • Food preparation, eliminate microbial contamination


        Benefits to the Fish Processing Industry

        • EW is safe to use as a final pre-process rinse.
        • Improved Cleaning-In-Place (CIP) of the food-processing environment.
        • EW eliminates all known bacteria, fungi, yeasts, viruses, moulds and spores.
        • Increased shelf life of products.
        • Process hygiene management is greatly improved.
        • Decontamination and sanitation procedures without harsh chemicals.
        • EW can be applied in the form of liquid, fog or ice.
        • Containing only activated and ionized constituents of water and salt

          On board Norðborg KG 689 they are using ECA-water for automated cleaning of filletting machines, conveyor belts and other surfaces on the factory deck. Captain Jón Rasmussen is very pleased with their ECA-system that has been running for more than 1 year now. Learn more about Captain Rasmussen’s experiences with ECA-water in this short accompanying video.

          We have experienced several surprising advantages regarding food safety and increased quality of our product since we started implementing ECA water.

          Disinfectant: Originally we bought the MOW2 for blood water treatment after working with salmon leftovers from the aquaculture. This to prevent the spreading of disease (ISA etc.) when the left over water is released back into the ocean.
          Environment: The mixed oxidized water clearly is a “greener” solution with no impact on the environment. The MOW2 steps in the place of traditional chlorine products like Sodium Hypochlorite. Basically you exchange the chemistry, that
          has bad impact on both local environment and post a hazard for the personnel handling the chemistry, to something you produce “in situ” from two abundant resources – namely normal salt and water.
