At the core of the process are the patented diaphragmatic cells that have been designed using innovative and unique technology to effectively deliver electrochemically activated solutions (Anolyte and Catholyte) using a 1-4% water solution of NaCl as initial raw material
The Family of Cells
Unlike other electrolytic cells, a diaphragm separates the Anolyte and Catholyte solutions that are generated respectively at the anode and cathode chambers of the cell, thus preventing the two streams mixing and inter-reacting to form a simple sodium hypochlorite solution, as is the case with other electrolytic cells that are commercially available at this time.
The cells are manufactured with variable Anolyte output capacity ranging from 40L to 4000L per hour of Anolyte out one cell. A combination of cells allows us to manufacture the units with output capacity up to 6000LPH.
In addition to the principal electro-chemical reaction that takes place at the electrodes, the high intensity of the electrical field at the electrode surface imparts a degree of electro-meta-stability to the water and its dissolved salts, increasing its ORP in the order of -800mv and + 1200mv respectively in the two streams.
This meta-stable condition has been found to remain for periods up to 72 hours after treatment and even more, retaining an inherently higher chemical reactivity and activity for this period of time and even longer (when activated solutions are properly stored they remain sporicidal and biocide for up to 6 months and still biocide for up to 12 months). The increased ORP enhances the solubility, dispersive and reactive properties of the water and its dissolved salts by a marked degree and is a significant indicator of biocide potential.
Properties of these solutions depend on electric characteristics of power supply and chemical composition of the treated solutions. The pH level of the solutions synthesised is controlled in the range pH 2.0-13.0, but is adjustable and can be set-up for specific parameters.
