ELECTROLYSED WATER (EW) SYSTEM
Anolyte & Catholyte
Nature's way to sterilise and clean.
Units rage 240L per day to 72,000L per day.
Multi-year service intervals.
A cruise Ship had problems with high bacteria count on board. They installed a conventional disinfection system with UV light and Chlorination of all the fresh water.
After one year of trials with the UV /Chlorination the company found that the reduction of the bacteria count to < 1Cfu/ 100ml was not achieved. They therefore decided to take a new initiative to reduce the bacteria counts.
They ordered the installation of an EW Unit for Anolyte production.
After the unit was installed and only 6 weeks later, the Ship was declared free from bacteria’s.
This equipment is highly suitable for: Hospitals, Food and Beverage Processors.
Reducing costs and increasing peace of mind.
Electrolysed water (electrolyzed water, EW, EOW, ECA, electrolyzed oxidizing water, electro-activated water or electro-chemically activated water solution) is produced by the electrolysis of ordinary tap water containing dissolved sodium chloride.
The electrolysis of such salt solutions produces a solution of hypochlorous acid and sodium hydroxide. The resulting water is a known cleanser and disinfectant / sanitizer.The electrolysis occurs in a specially designed reactor which allows the separation of the cathodic and anodic solutions. In this process, hydrogen gas and hydroxide ions can be produced at the cathode, leading to an alkaline solution that consists essentially of sodium hydroxide.
At the anode, chloride ions can be oxidized to elemental chlorine, which is present in acidic solution and can be corrosive to metals. If the solution near the anode is acidic then it will contain elemental chlorine, if it is alkaline then it will comprise sodium hydroxide. The key to delivering a powerful sanitising agent is to form hypochlorous acid without elemental chlorine - this occurs at around neutral pH. Hypochlorous is a weak acid and an oxidizing agent.
This "acidic electrolyzed water" can be raised in pH by mixing in the desired amount of hydroxide ion solution from the cathode compartment, yielding a solution of Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH). A solution whose pH is 7.3 will contain equal concentrations of hypochlorous acid and hypochlorite ion; reducing the pH will shift the balance toward the hypochlorous acid. At a pH between 5.5 and 6.0 approximately 90% of the ions are in the form of hypochlorous acid.
In that pH range the disinfectant capability of the solution is more effective than regular sodium hypochlorite (household bleach).
ION Air Cleaner
IN-Line HVAC and stand alone Room units
Excellent spore and mould control system. Efficiently removes particles from the air flow.
An air ioniser (or negative ion generator or "Chizhevsky's chandelier") is a device that uses high voltage to ionise (electrically charge) air molecules.
Negative ions, or anions, are particles with one or more extra electrons, conferring a net negative charge to the particle. Cations are positive ions missing one or more electrons, resulting in a net positive charge.
Most commercial air purifiers are designed to generate negative ions. Another type of air ioniser is the electrostatic discharge (ESD) ioniser (balanced ion generator) used to neutralise static charge.
Air ionisers have been used to eliminate the occurrence of air-borne bacterial infections and to reduce static electricity buildup in electronics.

Both EW and ION systems are installed by manufacturer and offer support programs for maintenance.
