Dairy Facilities


Dairies  can use hypochlorous acid (HOCl) for a multitude of purposes because of its potent antimicrobial properties. HOCl is highly effective in disinfection and sanitation. Here are some common ways your dairy might use HOCl:

  • Surface and equipment disinfection: HOCl can be used to disinfect and sanitize surfaces, equipment, and containers in dairy processing facilities. It helps control the growth of bacteria, molds, and other microorganisms that could contaminate dairy products.
  • Cleaning and sanitation: HOCl can be used as a cleaning agent to remove dirt, debris, and organic matter from surfaces, helping to maintain a hygienic environment in the dairy facility.
  • Water treatment: Dairies may use HOCl to treat water used in various processes, ensuring that the water is free from harmful microorganisms and safe for use in dairy operations.
  • Dairy equipment sterilization: HOCl can be used to sterilize equipment used in dairy processing, such as milk tanks, pipelines, and filling machines, to prevent the transmission of pathogens.
  • Disinfecting udders and teats: In dairy farming, HOCl can be used to disinfect the udders and teats of cows before milking to reduce the risk of bacterial contamination.
  • Hygiene in milking parlors: HOCl can be used to maintain a clean and sanitary environment in milking parlors, reducing the risk of cross-contamination during the milking process.
