Frequently asked questions

I herewith give some FAQ.

What is Anolyte?

The electrolyte on the anode side of an electrochemical cell that is divided into compartments. Anolyte is commercially available as Neutral Electrolyzed Water (‘NEW’), produced on-site.

What is Electrolyte?

A chemical compound (salt, acid, or base) that dissociates into electrically charged ions when dissolved in a solvent. The resulting electrolyte (or electrolytic) solution is an ionic conductor of electricity. Very often, the so formed solution itself is simply called an “electrolyte.” Also, molten salts and molten salt solutions are often called “electrolyte” when used in electrochemical cells, see ionic liquid. See also solid electrolyte.

What is Anolyte?

Anolyte is an activated solution produced onsite using a process named Electro Chemical Activation (ECA). Anolyte is a very powerful disinfectant against all bacteria, viruses and algae even when it is diluted in water or sprayed in the air.

What is Acidic Anolyte?

Acidic Anolyte can be used wherever there is a need to disinfect or sterilise, in applications where the pH is unimportant and where there is no danger of corrosion. Acidic Anolyte is a strong oxidizing solution with a pH of ~2.0-4.0 and an Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) of >1000 with active chlorine content of about ~50-500 ppm.

What is Neutral Anolyte?

Neutral Anolyte has a pH of ~6.0-7., a content of active chlorine of ~50-500 ppm and an ORP of  >900mV.  It is used wherever pH is important (corrosion) and where possible evaporation of active chlorine cannot be avoided. Neutral Anolyte is very effective against bacteria and viruses and is mostly used to disinfect swimming pools, drinking water or other water sources. Besides Neutral Anolyte is widely used to disinfect / sterilize objects (floors, room, wall, tools, foodstuff, etc.).

What is Catholyte?

Catholyte is a by-product that is also produced onsite. Catholyte have an ORP of ~ -800 to -900mV. Catholyte is alkaline with a pH of ~ 10-13. Catholyte does not have sterilizing properties, but can be used for flocculation (e.g. of heavy metals), coagulation, washing and extraction. Catholyte can be used to wash wounds (instead of using iodine) and wherever there is a need to increase pH level of the water being treated.

What is Alkaline or Acidic Electrolyzed water?

Alkaline Electrolyzed Water and Acidic Electrolyzed Water are produced by the electrolysis of ordinary tap water in the presence of a specific amount of salt, generally sodium chloride.

Acidic Electrolyzed Water is a strong oxidizing solution which has a typical pH range of 3.5 to 8.5 and an oxidation reduction potential (ORP) of +600 to +1200 mV. It also contains Hypochlorous acid which contributes to its bacteriocidal properties. It is primarily used as a disinfectant as it is highly efficacious against bacteria, fungus, mold, spores and other micro-organisms, in very short contact times. It can be applied as liquid, fog or ice. Acidic Electrolyzed Water is also known as: AEW, Anox, Suprox, EO-water, Anostel, Anodox, Acidic Anolyte or A-Anolyte

Alkaline Electrolyzed Water has a typical pH range of 11.2 to 11.4 and an oxidation reduction potential as low as -850 mV. This fraction may have utility as an antioxidant food additive. Alkaline Electrolyzed Water is also known as: AW, Cathox, EO-water or Catholyte

What is Neutral Electrolyzed Water?

Neutral Electrolyzed Water (‘NEW’) is an all-natural, organic, non-toxic, non-irritant, environmentally and ecologically safe sanitizing and disinfecting solution.  It is produced from the electrochemical reaction of simple water, salt and electricity. The applications for this technology are infinite and include any process requiring a sterilizing, disinfecting, cleaning or water purification facility.

‘NEW’ is revolutionizing sanitization and disinfection in the food industry.  Not only does this product provide a ‘Green’ solution to help protect the nation’s food supply, it is in line with the American public’s concern over escalating food product recalls and their growing demand for the industry to move quickly to implement more safe and natural products.

‘NEW’ offers many advantages over traditional chemical technologies, including:

  • safety
  • superior disinfection performance
  • removal of biofilm
  • a more stable, longer-lasting chlorine residual
  • enhanced microflocculation (reduction in turbidity)
  • improved taste and odor
  • oxidation of iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide

Neutral Electrolyzed Water is also known as: NEW, Anox, Suprox, Neutral Anolyte or ANK-Anolyte.
