How is hypochlorous acid used on cruise ships?


Hypochlorous acid has many useful applications on a cruise ship. HOCl can be used in the kitchen as a no-rinse sanitizer for produce, meat, poultry, and seafood. HOCl can be used as a sanitizer on food contact surfaces and for general sanitation replacing quats and peroxide based chemicals. It can be applied via foggers or misters to broadly disinfect rooms and large common areas. HOCl can be used to clean and disinfect the ship for prevention and control of Norovirus outbreaks. HOCl can be used as an antimicrobial hand wash via dispensers throughout the ship. HOCl can replace chlorine for generating potable water and for pool treatment.
