Currently, Yamada Machine Tool (Thailand) (hereafter YMTT) is focusing on popularization of the hypochlorous acid solution generation system ViruClear " that strongly disinfects bacteria and viruses with an effective chlorine concentration of 200 ppm in Thailand.

" that strongly disinfects bacteria and viruses with an effective chlorine concentration of 200 ppm in Thailand. SAKURA CROSS CLINIC on the 18th floor of the Emporium Tower, which is directly connected to BTS Phrom Phong Station in Bangkok. We asked Mr. Takeshi Ohara, GM of the clinic, and Mr. Yamada, the president of YMTT, about the effects of hypochlorous acid solution.

▲ YMMT's "ViruClear" system and "ViruClear Water" generated

The combination of alcohol sterilization and hypochlorous acid solution powerfully disinfect everything in the clinic.

In Japan, disinfection using a hypochlorous acid solution in addition to alcohol (ethanol) is widely popular in hospitals and nursing homes. "At our clinic, we use both alcohol and ViruClear Water to disinfect twice an hour in order to give maximum consideration to safety as a medical institution," says GM Mr. Ohara.

What are the seven benefits of using ViruClear Water (hypochlorous acid solution) at the clinic?

① High-quality hypochlorous acid solution that can also be used for disinfecting and cleaning food—very safe
② Can be safely used as a disinfectant for the hands of people who are allergic to alcohol
(* If one is allergic, skin will turn red and become swollen)
③ Little effect of splashes when spray disinfecting hands of children
④ It is safe to use for toys such as building blocks that children play with during waiting times
⑤ Can be used for furniture, lacquer wear, picture book covers, etc. without any worries about causing discoloration or deterioration.
(* If alcohol is applied, the color and ink will come off, etc.)
⑥ Effective against alcohol-resistant bacteria (norovirus, etc.)
⑦ Lower cost than alcohol

▲ Disinfect everything placed in the kids' corner at the clinic

▲ Alcohol hand sanitizer placed at the entrance of the clinic. For short children, ViruClear Water is ideal because if alcohol is used, it splashes easily on their faces.

"A report from the administrative agency under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has demonstrated that hypochlorous acid water is also effective against COVID-19. It has been proven that the virus is inactivated at a rate of more than 99.99% by exposure to hypochlorous acid solution of about 35 ppm for 20 seconds, and it has been proven that inactivation is certainly possible at 200 ppm even against samples with higher viral concentrations*1. From this, it can be seen that corona-virus disinfection can be reliably performed in a very short time with hypochlorous acid solution having a concentration of 100 to 200 ppm for normal usage.

" On the other hand, if alcohol is used, the ethanol solution at a certain concentration or higher has to be firmly volatilized after wetting. In addition, non-envelope viruses such as norovirus and rotavirus cannot be sufficiently inactivated by alcohol.

Compared to commercially available hypochlorous acid solution, which is only about 30 to 35 ppm, the hypochlorous acid solution produced by ViruClear has an effective chlorine concentration of 200 ppm. It is 80 times more capable than a typical kitchen bleach (sodium hypochlorite solution) with the same chlorine concentration, "says President Mr. Yamada. The company aims to enlarge the availability of ViruClear Water so that it can be used everywhere in Thailand.

"I would like to continue using ViruClear Water," says GM Mr. Ohara. If you want to try YMTT's ViruClear Water, why not sign up for a free trial?
