Electro-Chemical Activation (ECA) is the generation of activated solutions by passing a dilute NaCl solution through an electro-chemical cell, segregating the ions formed and producing two oppositely charged solutions with altered physical and chemical properties. One solution is a very effective sanitizer generically referred to as Anolyte; branded by Trustwater as Ecasol™. The second solution is a detergent generically called Catholyte, and branded by Trustwater as Aversol™.
Electro-chemical Activation (ECA) is the generation of activated solutions by passing a dilute NaCl solution through a Flow-through Electrolytic Module (FEM), segregating the ions formed and producing two oppositely charged solutions with altered physical and chemical properties. Electro-chemical Activation changes the state of the salt solution from a stable to a metastable state. The positively charged anolyte solution, known as Ecasol™, has a redox value in excess of 600 mV, is pH neutral and consists of a mixture of unstable mixed oxidants (mainly hypochlorous acid) in a physically excited state that is capable of penetrating biofilms and is highly microbicidal. The negatively charged catholyte solution, known as Aversol™ has detergent properties, a pH as high as 13.5, a redox value of -600 mV and consists predominantly of sodium hydroxide in an excited state. These active ion species are short lived with a half-life of usually less than 48 hours, and as such produces on-site, on-demand.
