How is Disinfecting Achieved with VIROLYZE

An aqueous solution of NaCl, electrochemically activated in our unit, a powerful, non-toxic, non-hazardous disinfectant called Anolyte is the main disinfecting agent in any EWDS.


Anolyte is a colorless transparent liquid with a slight chlorine smell. It contains various mixed oxidants predominantly hypochlorous acid, which give Anolyte highly bactericidal and sporicidal activity.


Anolyte parameters are as follows:

  • pH from 2.0 to 8.5 

  • concentration (general) of active chlorine 100-6000 mg/l 

  • very high oxidant activity with low (hundreds of parts of percentage) concentrations of working substances that don't harm chemical and other vital characteristics of the treated water and don't form any toxic compounds.

Electrochemistry is the part of science which deals with the interrelationship of electrical currents, or voltages, and chemical reactions, and with the mutual conversion of chemical and electrical energy.


Electrolyzed Water (EW) Technology is based on a new, previously unknown law of anomalous changes of reaction and catalytic abilities of aqueous solutions subjected to electrochemical unipolar (either anodic or cathode) treatment. EW is necessarily associated with alteration of its chemical composition, acidity and (or) alkalinity within a wide range. 


That is why EW application makes it possible:

  • to exclude from routine technological processes the regulation of solution properties with costly reagents; 

  • to improve the quality of the treated substances; 

  • to reduce the number and duration of technological operations; 

  • to decrease their labor-consuming nature; 

  • to facilitate and simplify processes of water and sewage purification.


Unlike well-known electrochemical reactions, in the processes of electrochemical activation, initial substances are diluted aqua-saline (brine) solution and mains water. The eventual EW products are not concentrated chemical substances but activated (Anolyte and Catholyte) solutions: low mineralized liquids in a metastable state, manifesting increased chemical activity. Synthesis of electrochemically activated solutions is only possible when unipolar electrochemical exposure is combined with the treatment of as many as micro volumes of liquid in high voltage electric field of a double electric layer near the electrode's surface.


The above-stated Conditions of producing activated solutions can be realized only in special diaphragmatic cells (round or square), which are the key elements of every ECO unit.


The EW solutions produced by our units (Anolyte and Catholyte) are channeled through canals and chambers and separated by the membranes. This unique patented process allows for more even distribution of electrolyte (brine solution) within the volumes of the chambers and reduces the risk of the formation of stagnant zones when flow rates of electrolytes are high. The construction of the diaphragmatic cells also allows highly effective evacuation of products of electrochemical and chemical reactions from the chambers.
