  Introducing ROX® Water. The green solution that REALLY works!

  Cleaning and sanitising chemicals are not only costly, but are harsh on both your skin and the
  environment. Harsh chemicals often need rinsing after use, wasting water. Floors become super
  slippery from leftover soap residue when they get wet. Bacteria on food dramatically reduces it’s
  shelf life.

  ROX® Water will save you money by reducing your dependency on chemicals, is non
  hazardous, non toxic and won’t irritate. ROX® Water provides many opportunities to recycle and
  reduce water wastage, and there is no need to rinse. ROX® Water uses no soap, just salt, water
  and electricity. ROX® Water will improve the way your food looks and keeps by killing bacteria.

  And yes, it really does work. It isn’t a fad. It has been independently tested. It has lots of fans:

       “After microbiological trials, ROX® has arrived at Hungry Jack’s. It’s efficacy as a
      sanitiser is well proven, and when combined with it’s cost effectiveness, ease of use
      and it’s obvious environmental benefits, ROX® is the way of the future.”
      Trevor Aspinall, National Purchasing Manager, Hungry Jack’s

       “We soon realised the benefits in food safety, hygiene, environment and operating
      costs. The question will not be, ‘Why did you install an electrolysed water system?’, but
      ‘Why didn’t you install one?’. ROX® has a place in all the new kitchens we design.”
      Tim Smallwood, Managing Director, Food Consultants Australia

  ROX® Water is as good as it sounds. You’ll save money and create a healthier environment.
  And all this from a system the size of a briefcase, that can provide up to 3,600lt of sanitiser and
  cleaner per day, from just salt and water. Have a look at the attached information sheets
  (including what AgriQuality found in their testing of ROX® Water).

          What Does Sanitation
          Management Involve?

Using electrolysed water production equipment (ROX Water)
  greatly changes daily sanitation management practices.

 Washing and disinfecting of cooking utensils and surfaces
    and sterilisation of foodstuffs is vastly simplified.

 Electrolysed water is highly effective against microbes, the
   main cause of food poisoning, and acts to prevent both
           primary and secondary contamination.

Paired with an accurate grasp of the routes of contamination,
    use of electrolysed water production systems offers an
efficient means of providing effective sanitation management.

Cleaning in the Kitchen and
    Bathroom is Easy

   Using electrolysed water (ROX Water) makes your daily
     cleaning regime quicker, easier, cheaper and safer.

  Alkaline electrolysed water (cleaning water) is capable of
     dissolving proteins and emulsifying oils and fats.

    Used in a 50-50 mix with the acidic electrolysed water
(sanitising water), the cleaning water becomes more versatile,
  turning a time consuming 2-step cleaning and disinfecting
               process into a fast 1-step process.

The 50-50 mix also helps suppress odours caused by bacteria
 proliferation, making it ideal for all your bathroom surfaces.

Excerpts from: Executive Summary
Electrolyzed Water (ROX Water) has many varied uses in the food preparation and handling
An acidic solution is shown to be a very effective sanitising agent under many different
An alkaline solution is shown to be a very useful cleaning agent.
As both the acidic and alkaline solutions are very dilute, their disposal in waste water systems
presents no environmental problems.
Researchers have proven ROX Water sanitising solution to be a more effective
antimicrobial agent than hypochlorite solutions.
ROX Water is shown to be suitable for sanitising food preparation surfaces, cutting boards
and equipment and spraying on cut fruit and vegetables without leaving a residual taste or
ROX Water is strongly bactericidal against common pathogenic organisms and effective
against spores that are normally resistant to sanitisers. It is fungicidal and is effective against
common food-spoilage organisms, both of bacterial and fungal nature.

Excerpts from: Commercial Applications for ROX Water
Solutions produced by ROX Water are more effective at killing or inactivating bacteria than
solutions prepared from Sodium Hypochlorite in warm water that contain several times the
available chlorine.

A.    Efficacy Against Bacteria in Suspension
      Sanitising solutions produced by ROX Water were able to inactivate cocktails
      containing five different strains each of E coli, Listeria monocytogenes and
      Bacillus cereus, all common food-borne pathogens.
      The E coli and Listeria bacteria were inactivated (an almost one billion-fold reduction in
      the ability of the bacteria to reproduce) within 10 to 30 seconds of the addition of the
      sanitiser solution. A 30-fold reduction in viability after 10 seconds.
      Reported no significant difference between the efficacy of the fresh and the aged
      sanitising solutions (24 hours).

B.    Efficacy against Fungi
      Significantly inhibited or prevented the germination of 22 different fungal species
      following treatment with Electrolyzed sanitising solution. Thin walled species were treated
      for 30 seconds and all were killed, while thicker walled species were treated for two
      minutes and all were significantly inhibited or killed.
      ROX Water quickly kills a variety of fungi.

‘An assessment of scientific research on the properties and uses of Electrolyzed Water and
the ROX Water brand’

C.    Efficacy for Surface Sanitisation
      Noted that 30 sec and 60 sec exposure to the ROX Water acidic solution was highly
      effective in inactivating L monocytogenes in a solution and as a biofilm, with a one
      million-fold reduction in viable organisms in suspension. This was considerably higher
      than the efficacy of a control containing acidified solium hypochlorite solution with a
      similar chlorine concentration tested under the same conditions.
      In the presence of organic matter (sterile filtered chicken serum) treatment first with
      alkaline cleaning solution for 30 seconds, and then with the acidic sanitising solution for
      30 seconds, returned the bactericidal efficacy to near that of the solution without the
      organic chicken serum.
      Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C Virus are effectively cleaned and disinfected by ROX Water
      sanitising solution.
      Rates of detection on general bacteria on the surface of 100% immediately after
      removal, 73% after washing and 0% after disinfection with ROX Water.

D.    Efficacy on Cutting Boards and Food Preparation Equipment
      The sanitising solutions produced by the ROX Water Electrolyzer were effective in
      substantially reducing Enterobacteria aerogenes and Staph. Aureus on several different
      surfaces, including glass, stainless steel, glazed and unglazed ceramic tiles and china.
      Washing of the sanitised surfaces in the ROX sanitising water reduced populations of
      bacteria on the surfaces to negligible amounts.
      No viable bacteria were found in the sanitising water after treatment, while large
      quantities of the bacteria were recovered from the control water.
      Noted a one billion-fold reduction in the number of viable organisms on stainless steel
      containing five strains of Listeria after contact with Electrolyzed sanitising solutions for up
      to 5 minutes.
      None of the E coli or the Listeria were able to be detected in the sanitising solutions after
      immersion of the cutting boards.
      Rinsing the food contact surfaces with this sanitising solution could be a simple
      strategy to reduce cross contamination of food.

E.    Efficacy for Fruit and Vegetable Sanitation
      Evaluated the efficacy of ROX sanitising solutions in killing E coli, salmonella and Listeria
      monocytogenes on the surface of tomatoes. Compared the sanitising solutions with
      water containing 200ppm chlorine and with sterile distilled water as a control. In all
      cases, the ROX Water Electrolyzer sanitiser solutions were at least 1000-fold more
      effective than the water containing 200ppm available chlorine in removing the bacteria
      from the surface of the tomatoes.
      Immersed pears that had been inoculated with fruit rot spores in skin lesions in ROX
      Water and noted that incidence and disease severity were suppressed.
      Concluded that ROX Water is an effective surface sanitiser.

‘An assessment of scientific research on the properties and uses of Electrolyzed Water and
the ROX Water brand’

F.    Efficacy for Hand Washing
      Hand washing with sanitising solution, such as that produced by the ROX Water
      Electrolyzer, was more effective than washing with liquid soap, as effective as
      washing with medicated liquid soap.
      Reported similar efficacy for the sanitising solution and povidine-iodine solution following
      procedures resulting in relatively heavy contamination and relatively light contamination.
      Effective washing could be achieved in a short period of time (10 seconds) with no
      rising of resident bacteria to the surface of the hand following washing.

G.    Efficacy for Meat and Poultry Sanitation
      Spraying Electrolyzed water sanitizing solution on poultry carcasses prior to extended
      refrigeration significantly reduced Salmonella typhimurium found on removal from
      Use of electrolyzed water sanitizing solution was very effective in reducing
      Campylobacter jejuni on poultry and at preventing cross contamination of
      processing environments.
