Water Treatment

ECA Technology

Electro-Chemical Activation Process – Using common salt and water as main ingredients to produce anolyte (boicida) and Catolyte (washing solutions).? The anolyte has superior sterilizing and disinfectant properties and are more effective in destroying microorganisms and organic molecules than chlorine alone. Organic molecules such as pesticides, tannins and phenols, which are of concern in terms of toxicity, color and off-flavors, are effectively oxidized.

The anolyte is an effective means of eliminating organisms of public health concern (E.Coli, Cholera, Dengue, Typhoid, Paratyphoid, Legionaries etc.) from water, via mosquitoes and sewage systems, while simultaneously destroying organic constituents, which are commonly associated with off flavor and color.

How disinfectant is achieved with envirolyte systemThe key Envirolyte innovation is the interposition of an ion-permeable membrane between the positive and negative electrodes.

Salt, which in solution is in its ionized form (Na+ and Cl-), is exposed to a controlled difference in electrical potential between the cathode and the anode. This potential difference causes the Na+ and Cl- ions to migrate toward the pole of opposite charge.

The specially designed membrane, which separates the two chambers, allows the ions to pass unimpeded.

The net result is an enrichment of chlorine ions in the anode chamber and sodium and hydroxide ions in the cathode chamber.

This creates an Anolyte solution that is primarily chlorine based and a Catholyte solution that is primarily sodium and hydroxide based.

Similarly, water is also ionized extensively and will tend to migrate to the opposite pole as in the reaction below.
