EcoActiv Disinfectant



ECOACTIV formulations an EPA-registered based microbial agent that is used for institutional and industrial sanitization and disinfection. It has applications for food contact surfaces and equipment, beverage plant equipment, in food processing and packing plants and at eating establishments. This product is a acid sanitizer recommended for use on precleaned surfaces such as equipment, pipelines, tanks, vats, fillers, evaporators, conveyor belts, pasteurizers and aseptic equipment in dairies, breweries, wineries, beverage and food processing/packing plants, egg processing/packing equipment surfaces, and eating establishments. This product is effective as a sanitizer when solution has demonstrated greater than a 99.999% reduction of survivors after a 30 second exposure period in the AOAC Germicidal and Detergent Sanitizing Action of Disinfectants study



This product, as received or diluted, may be added continuously to the feed water system, between system sanitizing episodes, to aid in minimizing the regrowth/ accumulation of biological matter.

This product disinfects as it cleans in one operation. This product can be used to disinfect floors, walls and other hard non-porous surfaces such as tables, chairs, countertops, bathroom fixtures, sinks, bed frames, doors, shelves, racks, carts, refrigerators, coolers, glazed tile, linoleum, vinyl, non-porous glazed porcelain, glazed ceramic, plastic (such as polypropylene and polyethylene), stainless steel, glass, aluminum, non-porous baked enamel, chrome, laminated or painted surfaces or sealed stone. This product should not be used on marble or brass surfaces.

The product can be applied as a spray, wash, rinse or post-disinfection fog and may be used on food contact surfaces in contact The different concentrations are used in chemical synthesis, bleaching, sanitization, disinfection and sterilization across a variety of industries, including food and beverage, environmental remediation, industrial cleaning and sanitization, and oil and gas production. EPA-registered disinfectant products that meet the requirements for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

ECOACTIV formulations are registered for use as a sanitizer, disinfectant and sterilant by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and as an antimicrobial agent by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.


How does ECOACTEV disinfection work?

ECOACTIV as a disinfectant oxidizes the outer cell membranes of microorganisms. The oxidation mechanism consists of electron transfer. When a stronger oxidant is used, the electrons are transferred to the microorganism much faster, causing the microorganism to be deactivated rapidly.

ECOACTIV can be applied for the deactivation of a large variety of pathogenic microorganisms. It also deactivates viruses and spores. ECOACTIV activity is hardly influenced by organic compounds that are present in the water.
However, pH and temperature do influence ECOACTIV activity
