The Ecas4 Booster - Efficient and non-toxic water disinfection and food sanitisation systems

In line with its mission of continuous improvement within the Health and Hygiene Engineering sector, Ecas4 has recently developed an electrochemical reactor, the Ecas4 Booster.

The Ecas4 Booster can be installed in-line within processes of water disinfection and/or processes of food sanitation through the contact with a biocide solution

This electrochemical reactor operates by converting the chlorides present in the water to be treated into active chlorine. The chlorides needed may be already present in the incoming water (this is e.g. the case of most groundwater in areas not far from the sea) or they may be properly added, by dosing a small amount of brine obtained from sodium chloride or potassium chloride (the latter is particularly indicated when the water is then used for irrigation, because plants do not normally tolerate elevated levels of sodium).
