What is ElectroChemical Activation (ECA) Technology?
ElectroChemical Activation is the process of passing a dilute saline solution (0.05-0.5%) through a special electrolytic device, the design of which permits the harnessing of two distinct and opposite (by means of activity) streams of activated solutions (with electron-donor and electron-acceptor properties). Since its early discovery, ECA technology has gone through years of development. Key to the entire process is the Flow-through Electrolytic Cell (or module), commonly called the FEM. There are products on the market which use earlier versions of FEM technology, but there are drawbacks to be found with these. We offer you systems with the very latest and most effective versions of this technology.
How is our technology used?
Our generators create a colorless, odorless and aqueous solution using on-site, point-of-use electrolysis of diluted brine. Electrochemically activated solution is produced by applying a short-term (0.3 – 0.6 sec) mild electrical charge (5-9A @ 8 - 12 volts) to a dilute brine solution (less then1% salt) as it passes through a flow-through electrolytic module (FEM), a 10” by 1” diameter tubular device that converts the brine into a stream of reactive oxidants. A key benefit of our technology is that the oxidant composition can be precisely controlled over a wide pH range. For personnel decontamination, skin contact requires a near neutral pH. At neutral pH (pH 7), the primary oxidant in our technology is the metastable compound hypochlorous acid. This acid, though safe to skin, eyes and wounds, is a powerful oxidant and the most effective biocidal agent of all the chlorine based disinfectants.
Why use ECA rather than traditional technologies using ready-to-use chemical agents?
Our technology is a rapid-acting, broad spectrum antimircobial solution. It is odorless, non-toxic, non-irritant, non-allergenic and environmentally friendly. Our product offers the following benefits over traditional ready-to-use chemical methods:
What are researchers saying?
Joellen Feirtag, an associate professor at the Department of Food Science and Nutrition at the University of Minnesota, has been experimenting with the water-based electrochemical activation system. Feirtag states, "The results we're seeing are phenomenal. It's killing all bacteria and viruses. It even kills avian flu and anthrax spores."
