The Next Generation Oxidation Technology
The technology of disinfection and oxidation has not advanced in more than thirty years. Conventional treatment protocols for municipal water and waste water treatment are not able to eliminate biologic growth in filtration systems, on ultraviolet systems, nor within distribution systems. Despite the use of highly toxic and carcinogenic chemicals in produce processing facilities, product loss due to bacteria and mold ranges from 15% to 20% of harvested product. Conventional water treatments induce metabolic deficiencies in poultry, porcine and bovine farms. Parasites, bacteria and viruses are mostly responsible for the mortality in poultry, porcine and bovine farms. In food processing facilities, cross contamination of bacteria and airborne viruses are addressed with fifty year old toxic technologies. Chemical applications are not able to address the biologic and chemical contaminants in many industrial waste streams.
The Product Idea: KeyLate Solutions LLC has improved the technology of disinfection and oxidation by mimicking nature. Nature utilizes a variety of “reactive oxygen species” (ROS) and utilizing specific minerals and metals to aid in the distribution of ROS and act as catalysts for ROS reactions against microbes and organic contaminants. Nature utilizes a variety of “reactive oxygen species” (ROS) and utilizing specific minerals and metals to aid in the distribution of ROS and act as catalysts for ROS reactions against microbes and organic contaminants. KL-AOP advances disinfection technology by translating what nature does into simple to use liquid formulations. The result is a disinfection ability, for the management of viruses, bacteria, molds and biofilm that is more than twelve times that of conventional chlorine treatments, it far exceeds peroxides and it provides a residual protection that ozone is not capable of.
An Environmentally Safe & Effective Alternative
- More than 12 time the reactivity of chlorine
- Delivers oxidation energy controlled and measured by ORP
- Free Oxygen radical generation
- Kills pathogens/microbes
- Detoxifies organics
- Residual is Not Toxic: Oxygen and mineral monoxides
- By-products are None-Toxic
- May be considered as “ozone” in a bottle.
In comparative lab and field Tests, KL-AOP out-performed:
|35% Peroxide||Peroxide + Ammonia Chloride||Peracetic acid||Peroxyacetic acid|
|27% Peroxide||Isopropyl Alcohol||K/Na Hydroxide||Chlorine Dioxide|
|Ammonia Chloride||Quaternary Ammonia||Glycol ether||Ethyl Alcohol|
|Sodium Hypochlorite||Calcium Hypochlorite||Formaldehyde||Glutaraldehyde|
One of the most critical concerns in today’s world, is the control of organic contaminants, and pathogen populations, in our water supply, distribution systems and waste streams. This concern applies not only to human environments, but also to animal, and agricultural environments.
Ozone is one of the most effective methods of protecting against pathogen contamination in the environment. Ozone is a natural form of unstable oxygen (O3 rather than O2). Ozone releases the extra oxygen atom, in the form of a “free radical”. These free radicals act somewhat like an unguided missile; hitting the organic target (contaminant, or pathogen), and destroying the target. This free radical function is very different from that usually found in the use of such products like chlorine. Ozone does not poison, it actually destroys the target. The “target” cannot become immune to this free radical action.
The use of “mechanically generated” Ozone has existed since 1860, for the control of pathogens in potable water systems. For over one hundred and thirty years we have attempted to prefect an inexpensive method of generating Ozone, by mechanical means. Unfortunately, Ozone still remains an expensive capital investment for the average user in need of environmental control and improvement.
KL-AOP was developed to act as a liquid form of free radical oxygen; just as Ozone generates free radical oxygen. KL-AOP requires no expensive capital investment; only a simple injection into the water stream to be treated; or KL-AOP may be sprayed onto hard surfaces. This application enables the user to control the spread of pathogens, and/or organics in water or on surfaces (bacterial slime, algae, fungus, etc.).
The only residual after the application of KL-AOP, in the water, or on surfaces, is atomic oxygen and GRAS (generally recognized as safe) mineral oxides. No chemicals, or harmful residuals are left to be a concern.
KL-AOP is a unique mixture of minerals and oxygen in liquid form. When KL-AOP comes in contact with pathogens or organic contaminants, it releases nascent oxygen. This “release as needed” property of KL-AOP offers a strong down stream residual to continue disinfecting.
What is Nascent Oxygen?
Oxygen, as it occurs naturally, is a compound of two atoms of oxygen. Nascent Oxygen refers to making available a single atom of oxygen.
Why Nascent Oxygen?
It provides the highest efficiency of oxidation. Oxidation is an aggressive reaction that dramatically changes the physical properties of a target compound.
Of the many elements that will cause oxidation reactions, nascent oxygen is the most aggressive agent and gives the added bonus of not producing toxic byproducts.
For pathogen control, the amount of nascent oxygen necessary to kill pathogens is much less than other oxidants or disinfectants. (Examples of Bench Test Results)
Effectiveness, Safety, ease of use, multiple uses and improved health of the work environment makes KL-AOP stand out. In citrus processing facilities, formaldehyde is not only expensive to utilize as per EPA regulations, but the facility must be shut down for 3-4 days. KL-AOP, as a fumigant, the treated room is curtained off for 2-3 hours then placed back in operation.
In food processing facilities, bacterial cross contamination is a paramount problem. Ammonia products, which are conventional to this industry, are not only insufficient, but have to be removed from surfaces after application. With KL-AOP, once it is sprayed on a surface, it does not need to be washed off because the KL-AOP residues are GRAS.
The injection of KL-AOP into a waste stream is simple, more effective than ozone and is safer to use.
