The Ecas4 Reactor - Safe, ecological, water sanitisation and surface disinfection systems

Our patented technology produces a highly effective, genuinely pH neutral, electro‑chemically active, metastable disinfectant without the use of toxic chemicals.

Ecas4-Anolyte production is entirely automatised by means of an electrolytic procedure. The Ecas4 apparatus is based on the Membrane Electrolytic Reactor system with four chambers.

The Ecas4 systems fully comply with European legislation, including DVGW requirements and are currently installed and in use at a number of facilities in Europe.

Models:

WDS40

40 L/hr of Ecas4‑Anolyte

WDS80

80 L/hr of Ecas4‑Anolyte

WDS160

160 L/hr of Ecas4‑Anolyte

Worldwide Patented Four Chamber Cell System

The Ecas4-Anolyte solution has a high redox power and is genuinely pH neutral and non‑corroding due to our unique patented 4-chamber system.

The Ecas4 apparatus is based on the Membrane Electrolytic Reactor system with four chambers (Patents - PCT/IT 2006 000 829 and PCT/EP 2009 065 077). The reactor features allow the typical synthesis of a neutral Anolyte (with a pH close to 7) characterized by an ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) of about 850-900 mV, a chloride content of around 0.35% and an active chlorine content of about 350 mg/l.

The Ecas4 technological advantage

  • Ecas4-Anolyte is pH neutral and is therefore non-corrosive
  • Using Ecas4 avoids the need to prepare and store dangerous chemicals
  • 'Instantaneous & 'residual' effects
  • Disinfects against: E-coli, Coliforms, Pseudomonas, Enterococcus, Staphylococcus, Clostridium, Legionella, Biofilm
  • Removes existing biofilm from hot water mains pipes
  • Approved bactericidal activity according to EN1276 and EN3697 of minimum log 5
  • Environmentally friendly and non-toxic
  • Improvement of COD, BOD and AOX values in wastewater derived by disinfection with Ecas4-Anolyte
  • Fully complies with European legislation, including DVGW requirement (DVGW - German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water)
  • Costs savings as thermal-shock treatment of pipes is not required
  • Labour savings in industrial surface and machinery disinfection
  • No chemical purchases are required
  • No special safety equipment or protocols required as Ecas4 is non-toxic
  • Customised design – water treatment systems can be individually designed according to client requirements
  • Remote control capability – once installed within new or existing water networks, the Ecas4 water treatment system can be remotely controlled
  • Water treated remains potable

How Ecas4-Anolyte compares to other purification and disinfection systems

Common disinfection methods do not offer long-lasting protection because they are not capable of eliminating the habitat of both Legionella bacteria and other dangerous pathogenic agents, namely the biofilm. This is an ever present risk in piping systems. The Ecas4-Anolyte disinfection system measures and injects a minimal dose of Ecas4-Anolyte disinfecting agent into the water pipes. Suitable for hot, warm and cold water.
