ECA Technology is the term used for Electrical Chemical Activation processes that produce powerful but entirely safe disinfectants and biocides using only the simple inputs of ordinary water and salt passed across a patented electrochemical cell.
How does ECA Technology work?
• The ECA Technology units utilise a patented electrolyser (cell) to electrically activate a combined solution of standard tap water and common salt (NaCl).
• Each chamber has an electrode, one positive and one negative.
• DC current is introduced to the process and Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) of unequivocal quality and efficacy is produced.
• The strength of the solution can be controlled by changing the device’s current.
Two key solutions are produced that have unrivalled cleaning properties, namely:
ANOLYTE solution: Eco-Lyte (A) and Eco-Lyte (NTL) – used as a disinfectant which eliminates all types of bacteria, micro-bacteria, viruses, fungi, spores and microbial toxins.
CATHOLYTE solution: Eco-Lyte (DG) – has increased dissolvent, extract and adsorption chemical properties and is mainly used as a degreaser/detergent.
This process replicates exactly what the human body does as a natural phenomenon by producing white blood cells (Neutrophil), which, once activated, produce a mixed oxidant solution which is highly effective at dealing with areas in the body that are being invaded by bacteria, a virus or other pathogen.
A “Green Solution“
The world is becoming increasing aware that the majority of traditional and chemical based disinfectants have significant downsides – they are expensive, toxic, energy intensive and are not completely effective in combating all forms of micro-organisms especially pathogens that cause infection and illness to their hosts. The consequences in terms of cost to personal health, budgets and public liability increases and the cost to the environment escalates.
ECA Technology represents the most environmentally sensitive biocide technology available which is totally effective in eliminating all forms of micro-organisms either in water supplies or on work surfaces and materials. The inputs of water and salt are naturally occurring and sustainable products while the output biocide is pH neutral, non-toxic and non-hazardous to all macro-organisms while being totally effective against all bacteria, viruses, cysts, protozoa and algae with no mutation or resistance. The technology allows for the biocides to be produced easily, cheaply and efficiently on-site, which combined with the sustainable properties of the inputs gives it a very small carbon footprint.
Electro Chemical Activation is a completely “Green” water based technology that replaces the use of outdated chemicals in the cleaning industry, in the food and beverage production and distribution process, hospitals, bottling industry, farming, and the service industries (hotel / restaurants, etc.), to name just a few. The ECA process produces two Eco-Lyte products (steriliser and degreaser) that can replace your regular chemicals, and which are safe, effective, sustainable, and do no harm to people or the environment.
