What Does On-Site Generation Mean?
March 01, 2021 Leave a Comment
We get excited when consumers ask us about on-site generation. On-site generation is a technology that allows consumers to create their cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting products in their homes or their business.
A Little Bit of History
In 1839, a pioneering scientist named Michael Faraday discovered the groundbreaking technological phenomena of electrolysis. This is the technology GenEon uses to allow users to produce an electrically charged mixture of water and proprietary minerals known as "electrolyzed water" on-demand (on-site generation). Our one-step, multipurpose products offer safe and sustainable cleaning, sanitizing, and degreasing solutions for consumers. Our on-site production technology offers a competitive advantage in terms of product efficiency, eco-friendliness, cost savings, safety and simplicity.
GenEon Takes On-Site Generation Technology Serious
Every aspect of our products benefit customers. Our products have been tested at nationally recognized labs following AOAC protocol. GLP procedures confirm that GenEon's solution kills 99.999% of common germs in some cases in as little as 30 seconds. The pathogens we have tested include, but are not limited to, the human coronavirus, listeria, MRSA, Staph, VRE, Pseudomonas, norovirus, H1N1, Salmonella, and E.coli O157:H7 bacteria.
In addition to the high-powered disinfectant properties of our products, they are also safe for virtually all surfaces and people, pets, and plants. Historically, people in need of cleaning and sanitizing products, unfortunately, purchase costly toxic chemicals to use in places where they worked, lived, and played. Our on-site generation technology changes that.
Our innovative technology offers ideal alternatives that address these unavoidable problems to provide customers with the next generation of cleaning and sanitizing solutions. While advancements in "greener" chemical technologies, cheaper dispensers, and color-coded liquids have helped, they have not eliminated the conventional hurdles of cost, risk, and impracticality associated with traditional cleaning systems. GenEon solutions allow customers to produce their own cleaning products on-site while eliminating the problems related to conventional methods such as messiness, complexity, and toxicity.
The GenEon On-Site Generation Process
The process is called electrochemical activation (ECA). Here's how it works.
One of the natural minerals that GenEon uses as a catalyst is a salt. Salt is a compound comprised of sodium and chloride. Sodium ions are positively charged, and chloride ions are negatively charged.
GenEon Onsite Generators expose these ions to a low electrical charge. The positive side of the charge electrochemically converts the chloride ion (Cl) to hypochlorous acid (HOCl), which is a powerful sanitizer. The negative side of the charge electrochemically converts the sodium ion (Na) into sodium hydroxide (NaOH), which is a cleaning compound commonly found in soaps and detergents.
Unlike many other OSG systems, GenEon's system is a "Blended Stream System" that uses both versions in the same solution. The hypochlorous solution is represented as Free Available Chlorine (FAC) that has 80-200 times the sanitizing power of chlorine bleach. Since it is produced at a near-neutral pH, it won't bleach out furniture or clothes. This is called electrolyzed water for cleaning, and GenEon is the leader in on-site generation of electrolyzed water.
Savings and No Need to Store Harmful Chemicals
What's exciting about OSG is the savings in yearly cleaning and sanitizing costs. Many businesses in our portfolio are schools, where budgets are always a concern. We've heard many Testimonials
from these schools about how much money they've saved. Another great thing about using on-site generation is that it virtually eliminates the need to store harmful chemical-based products in your building.
Our products are made using our advanced on-site generation technology like our Instaflow
, a compact high-volume Electro-Chemical Activation Technology for making cleaning, degreasing, and sanitizing solutions on-demand. Or our Trio Rx
that makes an EPA registered broad-spectrum disinfectant. The best part is, this on-site generation technology can easily be integrated into your current janitorial process. On-site generation is easy, compact, and capable of working in many different environments.
As a part of our complete cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting solution, we offer advanced delivery technology like our Mist
that allows you to apply our on-site generated cleaners, sanitizers, and disinfectants efficiently to wide-open spaces or those often-overlooked places that are hard to reach.
