Manufacturing by ECALIT process
AnolinDES, AnolinAIR and AnolinTW are manufactured using the protected ECALIT process. This ensures that the pH value of the solutions remains stable, as well as a shelf life of the products for up to two years.
ECALIT stands for Electrochemical Activation Low Ion Transfer and is a highly developed process of electrochemical activation. Developed by the microbiologist Dr. Kurt Kaehn and the chemical engineer Alexey Gaas, this process has enabled membrane cell electrolysis to make great progress and has been subject to continuous further development for several years.
The (weak) current produced by a ceramic membrane is distributed 1:1 to the sodium and chloride ions, producing an anodic solution with a high redox potential with small amounts of saline. This produces the active ingredient sodium hypochlorite, which consists of water and pure salt and is responsible for the excellent effect against bacteria, viruses and fungi.
The so-called redox potential, also known as redox voltage, is a physical measurand expressed in millivolts (mV) and can be used as an indicator parameter for assessing the progress of a disinfection measure. A high redox potential interferes with the metabolic processes of many microorganisms and thus plays a major role in killing many bacteria or deactivating many viruses. However, the redox potential should be in a range greater than or equal to 200 mV and less than 1000mV, otherwise a hazardous substance with increased chlorate levels will be formed, which in turn is dangerous.
Thus, thanks to the protected ECALIT process, no hazardous substances are produced during the manufacture of the active ingredient sodium hypochlorite. For this reason, no special safety precautions are required either in the production or in the use of Anolin products.
