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.

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. GIBPAT Pty Ltd ABN 75 010 668 649 LUGAMA ACCUTEMP The critical point in ensuring the prevention of food poisoning is ‘interrupting the route of contamination between foods’. Primary Contamination Secondary Contamination This comprises of contamination of This type of contamination arises foods directly from the natural indirectly from utensils and counters environment, such as locations where used in food processing, food foods are produced. This is broadly handlers’ hands and fingers, and other considered as contamination present points of contact. at the time the food is received. Electrolysed water actively prevents contamination Food Poisoning Washing Disinfecting Food is sterilised Contaminants are Acidic electrolysed water with washed away with (sanitising water) is acidic electrolysed water alkaline electrolysed water effective against nearly all (sanitising water). (cleaning water). types of food poisoning. Prevention of Primary Prevention of Secondary Contamination Contamination GIBPAT Pty Ltd ABN 75 010 668 649 LUGAMA ACCUTEMP 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. GIBPAT Pty Ltd ABN 75 010 668 649 LUGAMA ACCUTEMP An assessment of scientific research on the properties and uses of Electrolyzed Water and the ROX Water brand’ Author: Neil Chandler B. Pharm Novic Consulting Pty Ltd April 2007 Excerpts from: Key Findings on Research of ROX Electrolyzed Water • Research shows ROX Water acidic sanitising solution to be a more effective sanitiser than a solution of Sodium Hypochlorite. • ROX Water is also proven to be more effective than Sodium Hypochlorite solutions against sport forming bacteria. • Combination of cleaning with the ROX Water alkaline solution and sanitising with ROX Water acidic sanitising solution is proven to be highly effective in removing organic materials and sanitising food contact surfaces, cutting boards, utensils etc. • ROX Water has met or exceeded standards and has been approved for use by USA FDS, USNSF, USEPA and Japan Ministry of Health. • Conventional treatments to fight pathogens are increasingly ineffective and new interventions are needed. Research concluded that ROX Water is a highly suitable and effective new sanitiser stating it clean, quick and widely effective. • ROX Water has a rapid sanitising action. • ROX Water is produced using just tap water, saline solution and electricity as the only inputs - tests have demonstrated it can save considerable cost when compared to alternatives. • ROX Water is chemical free and can be disposed of in the normal waste system - it is proven to be neutral for the environment, better than potentially damaging alternatives. • Electrolyzed water has been shown to extend shelf life of soft fruit, salad items and vegetables. • Electrolyzed water is effective at sanitising and cleaning surfaces, equipment and utensils, hand washing, meat/poultry processing, aquaculture, water treatment, sanitising medical and dental instruments. GIBPAT Pty Ltd ABN 75 010 668 649 LUGAMA ACCUTEMP ‘An assessment of scientific research on the properties and uses of Electrolyzed Water and the ROX Water brand’ Excerpts from: Executive Summary Electrolyzed Water (ROX Water) has many varied uses in the food preparation and handling industry. An acidic solution is shown to be a very effective sanitising agent under many different conditions. 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 taint. 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. GIBPAT Pty Ltd ABN 75 010 668 649 LUGAMA ACCUTEMP ‘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. GIBPAT Pty Ltd ABN 75 010 668 649 LUGAMA ACCUTEMP ‘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 storage. Use of electrolyzed water sanitizing solution was very effective in reducing Campylobacter jejuni on poultry and at preventing cross contamination of processing environments.
