None! they are produced using your water, 0.5-1.0% of Salt (NaCl or KCl ) and a little electricity.
The units produce three basic liquids: Neutral Anolyte, Acidic Anolyte, and Catholyte.
The Anolytes are guaranteed to remove and destroy 99.99% of Fungi,spores, bio-film bacteria and Viruses The Catholyte is an efficient mild cleaning agent.
Yes! Anolyte is a very good de-odouriser, and efficiently breaks down organicloads, enhancing digestion in effluent systems. It is very good at oxidising H2S, Hydrogen Sulphide, which is fermentation odour and an acidifier which is a major cause of corrosion, concrete cancer and worker ill health.
Neutral Anolyte is an activated mix of Acidic Anolyte and Catholyte. It holds a pH of around 7 and can replace toxic chemical formulatiobns, Easy, safe handling. Below HSNO thresholds.
Acidic Anolyte holds a pH value around 2 ad can replace toxic chemical agents where an acid agent was previously used. For quicker micro-kill ONLY when needed. Guaranteed to yield better results and more effective than chemicals. Common belief is that Acidic Anolyte is more efficient than Neutral Anolyte. This is not always true, and can cause significant collateral damage.
Catholyte is a caustic Soda equivalent. It holds a pH around 12-13 and can replace chemical agents more efficiently and at less cost than any chemical formulation. With Catholyte, processes like CIP can be accomplished using cold water (not all applications) yield the same results as using Caustic in warm water. (Traditional Caustic production is available but not recommended, conflicts with out 'No chemical' philosophy.)
Anolytes consist of 99.96% water, 0.26% salt and 0.05% Hypochlorous Acid & Hypochlorite Ion. The Envirolyte Units contain one (or more) special electrolytic cells that activate the water with an electrical charge. The concentrate lof liquid holds around 800 - 1200 mV of charge (ORP), Depending on wether it is made as an acidic or Neutral Anolyte.
The titanium electrodes in the cells are coated with a special alloy that enables the cells to endure extremely high voltage induction. Other electrolytic cells on the market will only manage a voltage of around 8 Volts, and their lifetimes is around 6-8 months. the sacrificial degradation of these other cells is to be accurately determined, whereas Envirolyte cells voltage is 4 fold, degree of inclusion, in worst case process malfunction, has been accurately calculated and stated in our most stringent and audited approval document.
The cells are expected to have a lifetime of 5 years- used at 10 hours per day - after which the cells need to be replaced or alternatively the cells can be reconditioned as a preventative maintenance item prior to excessive component wear and tear, hydraulic erosion is a completely normal expectation over time.
It depends on the unit. We have units that produce from 300 litres per 10 hour Day up to 36000 Litres per day. Of course smaller units can be banked in series, to achieve any Practical engineering design optimisation format.The solutions are diluted to various ratios to desired outcome in various applications. as example only, to treat natural raw water to potable can require as little as 1 litre Anolyte to 1000 litres of raw water.
All the units are for their intended use. Prices are estimated for Australasia to range from 20,000 to $ 200,000. Depending on the scale of application. Once the unit is installed the only running costs are water, salt and electricity - e.g EL 6000 - litres/ day cost approx $18.50/ day to run.
No ! Anolyte has deployed products in a very wide range of Industries for some time now. If you don’t see any examples of white papers concerning your site, on our site or International links, please contact us for more information. This is a friendly challenge for us. There are not many industries where bad chemicals or other toxic by-product cannot be minimised or complimented, to reduce consumption.
In some cases , this is dependant on logistics and affect on solution during possible transport delays, Please consult us as , this is a changing situation as sub distributors and regional manufacture rolls out.
It depends on the application. Envirolyte, however considers 4% dosing of the liquid in concentrate form to be an adequate industrial sanitiser or post harvest wash. In drinking water normally 1/1000 (depending on contamination) is more than enough to remove all bacteria and bio-film and meet drinking water quality regulations, determined by FAC residual after cleaning. It is initially determined by organic loading or contamination of raw water.
