The Inevitable Future of Cleaning
Packaged cleaning chemicals that largely consist of water,
dyes and fragrances are on their way out. A new breakthrough technology — called
On-Site Generation (OSG) — is rapidly gaining the acceptance and confidence of
OSG technology converts water, electricity and a small
amount of salt into effective cleaning and antimicrobial solutions. It
eliminates the need for many packaged chemicals that have been used for years
to clean education facilities, hospitals, public venues, casinos, retails
stores and other spaces.
How OSG works
Uncomplicated OSG devices, which are relatively low cost and
simple to maintain, are connected to a facility’s tap water supply, drain and
standard electrical outlet. Softened tap water and salt are combined and the
mixture flows into an electrolytic cell. This water electrolysis process
creates two separate streams — a cleaning solution and an antimicrobial
Built-in sensors measure critical output parameters in both
solutions to ensure efficacy. The solutions are then dispensed into spay
bottles, automatic scrubbers, all-surface cleaners and carpet extractors for
your cleaning crews to use.
Instead of a cluttered closet full of multi-colored,
daily-use chemicals, cleaning crews have two simple choices—cleaning solution or
antimicrobial solution. The OSG solutions offer equal or better cleaning
capabilities, without VOCs, dyes, buffers, chelating agents or complicated
dilution processes of conventional packaged chemicals.
