What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis, also known as electrolyzed water treatment, is a process where tap water travels through a unit with multiple compartments that each consists of either negative or positive electrical charges.
Each compartment contains a membrane that allows only chloride or sodium to pass through.
The chloride is passed through the positively charged compartments while the sodium is passed through the negative charged compartments.
The chloride ions are turned into HOCl or hypochlorous acid and the sodium ions are turned into sodium hydroxide.
HOCl has very strong sanitizing properties as it will kill off harmful pathogens, while sodium hydroxide has very good cleaning properties as it eliminates dirt and grease.
Electrolyzed water is mostly used in the healthcare, hospitality and food processing industries.
Ensure water is safe to use in high risk conditions by eliminating disease causing pathogens.
What are the benefits of Electrolysis?
Electrolysed water is non toxic and can be used in places where chemicals are restricted or prohibited. I can help prevent diseases in livestock, bio-film on water and is not harmful to plants and vegetation.
Could Electrolyzed Water Benefit Your Operation?
Electrolyzed water technology systems are becoming popular around the world to disinfect, sterilize, and purify water in a variety of settings.
By safely administering electricity to a saltwater solution contained in a chamber, the patented technology changes the chemical composition of the water, becoming a chemical-free sanitizing substance. Electrolyzed water technology systems can be used in households, farms, the oil and gas industry, food, health and public service areas.
For example, Electorlyzed water techonolgy systems have been used to sterilize dairy equipment and stalls, and can be used to treat a range of bacterial and viral conditions including mastitis, scours, foot rot, ringworm, respiratory infection, and foot and mouth disease; all the while boosting resistance to infectious disease and promoting recovery.
Marketing the same technology in other parts of the world, Ecatech calculates 19 per cent increased milk production, 42 per cent animal weight gain, 50 – 80 percent decreased animal mortality rate, 50 per cent reduced medical costs, as well as over 6 per cent increased egg production and 5 – 6 gram egg mass increase.
They also measure 99.9 per cent reduction of Listeria, Salmonella and E.coli when the electrolyzed water solutions are used.
Plant life also thrives with treatments of the bioactive solution, with farmers using it to increase crop yield, disinfect grain, preserve silage, pest control, and prolonging the shelf life of fruits and vegetables.
Harmless to humans, land or marine animals, and the environment, electrolyzed water has also been found a cost effective green alternative in the oil industry. Solutions are used to stimulate production, treat wells, to eliminate corrosion in pipelines and storage tanks, and used as a cleaning solution for drill bits or tools on site.
It is hard to believe that one technology could have so many uses, but versatility seems to be one of the major benefits of Electrolyzed water technology systems.
