AboutTechnical Info

What is Instant Kill?

Instant Kill is an electrolized water technology that converts softened water into two distinctly different solutions in order to maximize sanitation while eliminating the need for toxic chemicals. Your carts come out of the cart wash ready for use, thus eliminating dwell time and the need for a cart holding area.

What is the active antimicrobial agent in Instant Kill?

The Instant Kill system uses two solutions that replace many cleaners:

  • Sanitizer - Hypoclorous acid, which is the same acid that the human immune system uses to kill pathogens throughout the body. It is a powerful antimicrobial that is effective against bacteria, viruses, yeast, and fungus.
  • Cleaner - Sodium Hydroxide, which is one of the best cleaners of its kind. It converts fats & oils into soap and washes them away, denatures proteins, and releases dirt and organic matter a layer at a time making it an excellent cleaning solution for equipment, tools, floors/carpets and surfaces.

What is Instant Kill Ideal For?

Instant Kill is ideal for pathogen destruction, bio-film removal, degreasing, surface sanitization and more. Our Instant Kill solutions are produced on-site and on-demand for just pennies per gallon and are highly effective and safer for employees and the environment.

How is Instant Kill good for the environment?
  • Very low carbon footprint - no transportation and no container disposal.
  • No surfactants, anti-foaming agents, perfumes or other additives.
  • Rapidly neutralized when recombined in the drain.
  • Saves water - less rinsing due to no residue left behind.
  • Saves energy - effective at ambient temperatures.
