What is Electro Chemical Activation (ECA Technology)
The Electro Chemical Activation process, better known as ECA is not a new technology.
Dating back to the 70’s, this technology was invented and used in Russia primarily in the mining industry for drill lubrication.
In later years, greater benefits of the technology, particularly the Anolyte (disinfectant) solution became understood and then used in Russian hospitals for disinfection.
Envirolyte international saw many opportunities for the technology and under license, developed various applications for the use of this technology in the food, beverage and dentistry fields.
ECA’s Anolyte and Catholyte solutions are created by mixing pure, readily available food grade salt with softened water, thereafter passing it through patented reactors, located inside the ECA device cabinets, which are the core of the ECA device.
Once inside the reactor cells, the mild salt water is activated by way on an electrical charge and two distinct solutions are produced:
- Anolyte which is used as a disinfectant
- Catholyte which is used as a detergent
Envirolyte Egypt sells and installs ElecroChemical Activation hygiene management units for wide range of applications.
ECA Technology is a replacement for traditional disinfection and chemical cleaning processes.
How Electro Chemical Activation (ECA) Works
Electro Chemical Activation better known as ECA is a scientific process that mimics the body's own natural process. The following explains how the ECA process actually works.
When the body comes under attack from invading bacteria and viruses, the body's immune system immediately responds by sending increased numbers of a specific white blood cell called a Neutrophil to the invasion site. Once activated, these cells produce substantial quantities of a mixed oxidant solution which is highly effective in eliminating all invading microbes and pathogens. The oxidant that the white blood cells produce is acknowledged to be amongst the most potent natural disinfectants, yet it remains non-toxic to humans, and is highly effective as an antimicrobial agent with rapid action. It is called Hypochlorous acid or HOCl.
HOCl is generated under highly specific electrochemical conditions using a combination of water, salt (NaCl) and electricity. By utilising the specially designed and highly controlled production systems Radical Waters is able to consistently and repeatedly produce HOCl of the highest quality and efficacy, litre after litre.
HOCI is extremely effective at eliminating all pathogens and food spoilage microbes including spores.
