How is hypochlorous acid used in the meat and livestock industry?


Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is safe on animals and has many applications for livestock and meat processing. Hypochlorous acid can be applied to living areas to maintain clean and sanitized environments. HOCl can be dosed into the water for sterile drinking water. HOCl is used for sanitizing raw carcusses as a no-rinse sanitizer for processing. HOCl can be applied via hoses or foggers to broadly sanitize large areas. Employees can step into foot bathes and be misted by HOCl when entering a processing facility.
