Production of Electrolyzed Aqua-Solutions
The process of generating Activated Electrolyzed Aqua Solutions involves nothing but Electricity, Water and Salt [NaCl] in producing Anolyte [Acidic Oxidant] and Catholyte [Alkaline Anti-Oxidant] solutions which act as a powerful Micro-Biocide, a Catalyst, a Detergent, a Redox Agent and other types of activated water with many diverse applications.
Envirolyte Electrolytic Reactors [Electrolyzers] are used in the Electro-Chemical Activation [ECA] process that begins by injecting a Diluted Aqua-Saline Solution [Brine] into the Feed Water.
Electro-Chemically Activated Solutions are produced through Unipolar Electro-Chemical Exposure in which micro-volumes of liquid are passed through the High Voltage Electrical Field of a Double Electric Layer near the surface of the electrodes in a Special Diaphragmatic Cell which is the key component of the Envirolyte system.

When Direct Current [DC] electricity flows through water a chemical reaction takes place on the electrodes, with a change in the chemical composition of the water near the Anode and Cathode.
The design of the Electrolytic Reactor generates a Uniform High-Intensity DC Electrical Field through which the Feed Water must pass.
The objective is to subject the entire volume of Feed Water to the electrical field at the highest possible intensity with maximum chemical exposure and minimum heat emission.
The water activation that occurs at the Anode & Cathode terminals results in the creation of solutions whose properties including pH, Oxidation Reduction Potential [ORP] and physical form lie outside the range that can be achieved by conventional chemical means.
The design engineering of the Electrolytic Reactor is difficult since the maximum intensity of the Electro-Physical Effect only occurs in close proximity to the electrode surface in an Electric Double Layer [EDL] where the electric field intensity reaches hundreds of thousands of Volts per Centimeter.
Since the EDL is very thin – about 0.1mm in weak solutions and much thinner in concentrated solutions – the Electrolytic Reactor must be designed to insure maximum treatment of the micro-volumes of water as they pass in close proximity to the Anode and Cathode.
The electrochemical activation causes water to transform into a metastable (activated) state characterized by unusual values of Chemical and Physical Properties – including the Oxidation Reduction Potential [ORP] connected with the activity of electrons in water, Electrical Conductivity, pH, Other Parameters and Properties.
