How is hypochlorous acid used in beverage and dairy manufacturing?


Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) can generate sterile water for dairy and beverage manufacturing. HOCl is used to disinfect bottles. HOCl can dislodge biofilm and disinfect pipes in clean-in-place systems. It can be applied via hoses to clean equipment and sanitize work areas. Employees can step into foot bathes and be misted by HOCl when entering a processing facility.
