How is ESOL applied - Bridge biotechnology

We manufacture ESOL generators and you, the customer, have complete control over the production and application of the ESOL product.

This is not to say we give you the machine and leave you to work it out;

Effective biocidal action of any given active agent is reliant on:

  • Concentration
  • Exposure time
  • Composition of the contact surface (with rough and/or absorbent surfaces requiring a longer contact time)
  • Presence of organic loading

It is important to utilise a delivery mechanism that will maximise the antimicrobial potential of ESOL.

Due the the plethora of problems that ESOL can solve, calls for various solutions for the application of ESOL.

Problem: Post harvest fruit and vegetable spoilage

application method: Fogging / misting

Environmental decontamination is used where food production is carried out. During manufacture, food can be exposed to microbiological cross-contamination from surfaces and the air, which may give rise to food spoilage.

Aerosol delivery technology utilises solid particles or liquid droplets suspended in a gas (i.e., ESOL droplets carried in air), in contrast to vapours, in which the substance itself is in the gas phase.

For environmental decontamination applications within habitable spaces, certain biocides are too toxic (e.g., phenolics and glutaraldehyde) or flammable (e.g., alcohols) or have the potential to leave unwanted residues on surfaces (e.g., iodophors). ESOL has none of these drawbacks and is safe enough to be used on food for human consumption and livestock.

Home and business hygiene

application method: direct

ESOL replaces all home and business cleaners
Bleach, antibacterial sprays and cleaners are used in day to day life. They are powerful and longer lasting than ever before but this comes with a price:
These strong cleaners are harmful to our health and the environment.
We are killing germs but we are also killing our planet.
ESOL is produced by a generator using salt, water and electricity.  ESOL is as a liquid, therefore the simplest method of application is to use the ESOL in an 'open-bucket' form.  Dipping a cloth in pure ESOL and wiping down surfaces is a simple way of utilising ESOL's highly disinfecting properties.  ESOL can also be used in a spray bottle as you would use any antibacterial / cleaning product.

There are no safety concerns when using ESOL, allowing you to handle the solution when fully concentrated.

What germs can ESOL kill?

Problem: Preservation food during transport

Application method: freezing

Ice has been used to preserve foodstuff for centuries

ESOL is produced as a liquid and keeps its biocidal properties for longer when kept at cold temperatures compared to a hot temperatures. Freezing ESOL is an excellent way of utilising and maintaining the disinfection properties of ESOL

Using frozen ESOL maximises not only this cold effect but brings the added antimicrobial effect of ESOL once the ice begins to melt.

Freezing ESOL for food transportation

Problem: Large area disinfection

application method: spraying

  • Livestock buildings
  • Medical areas
  • Hospital quarantine
  • Food preparation areas

These and other large area's require thorough disinfection. Spraying ESOL allows coverage and application over a large area

The method is generally more affordable than misting and can be done by hand.

There is also the option of spraying under high pressure if required which has the added benefit of removing large pieces of debris by force.

Do you have a question about ESOL application? 

    Do you have a problem that you think ESOL can solve but the application methods don't quite fit your criteria?
