Independent results: Electrically-activated water no better than tap water
November 9, 2010
PLYMOUTH, MN — Nilfisk-Advance has announced the results of independent testing of the performance of electrically-activated water technology on professional floor scrubbers, according to a press release.
The results show that a floor scrubber using electrically-activated water technology did not perform better than when that same floor scrubber used ordinary tap water, the release stated.
"The claim that electrically-activated water acts as a ''powerful cleaning agent/ detergent'' on professional floor scrubbers was not supported in our testing," said Wade Reitmeier, general manager, research and development and product management for Nilfisk-Advance.
"Such claims must be met with careful analysis because our industry relies on credible science to provide products and services. To evaluate the performance of electrically-activated water on floor scrubbers, Nilfisk-Advance worked with several experts to design a comprehensive test procedure using accepted American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards and best industry practices," Reitmeier added.
Nilfisk-Advance retained two independent and internationally accredited labs to test the cleaning performance of today''s current floor scrubbers equipped with electrically-activated water technology, the release noted.
