SAFE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVE
Aquacode™ helps industry, agriculture and public institutions to increase the productivity and quality of life of humans and animals by offering machines that produce disinfectant against bacteria, viruses, spores and mold at low cost and without the use of chemicals.
About electrolysis machines (ECA)
ECA works in the same way as the human immune system.
When the body is attacked by invading bacteria and viruses, the immune system responds immediately by sending neutrophils (white blood cells) to the invasion.
Neutrophils are one of the body's main defenses against bacteria and, when activated, produce large amounts of a mixed oxidant solution that is effective in eliminating invading microbes and pathogens.
This weak acid, which occurs naturally in the human body, is called hypochlorous acid (HOCI) and is a potent disinfectant. It is non-toxic to humans and is very effective as a fast-acting antimicrobial. Hypochlorous acid is widely recognized as one of the most effective known biocides.
In detail, the system consists of an electrolytic cell containing two electrodes, a cathode and an anode, separated by a membrane.
An aqueous solution consisting of filtered and soft water and, depending on the application, sodium chloride (NaCl, salt) is injected into the cell. Using electricity with predefined and controlled current and voltage values, the cell produces an electrically activated fluid:
Anolyte, with high disinfection effect that can be used in various applications.
Disinfectant without alcoho
Aqua4power™ - produced from Aquacode™ machines is a water-based product which, unlike alcohol and chlorhexidine, is not toxic to the body. The active substance hypochlorous acid eliminates viruses up to 99.9% in 30 seconds. Also as effective as hand alcohol and alcohol but is much gentler on the skin.
HOCl is a naturally occurring substance that is produced in our white blood cells to fight bacteria and inflammation after an infection. HOCl provides a unique power to eradicate dangerous organisms without damaging our cells. HOCl is one of the only agents that can heal our wounds while being lethal to almost all known dangerous bacteria and viruses that threaten our health.

Brew and Beverage Industry
Aquacode™ disinfectant generators have a number of applications in this industry. They include disinfecting water
supply, tunnel pasteurizers, bottle wash and cleaning of conveyor and transport systems.The use of an Aquacode™ generator can result in significant savings as it allowsprocesses to be run at lower temperatures and the water to be recycled.
Cooling Towers and Ponds
Anolyte produced by our onsite generators effectively controls Legionella and other bacteria maintaining a safe
and healthy environment. The powerful disinfecting solution also destroys biofilm yet is no more corrosive
than tap water.
Waste Water Treatment
The addition of anolyte to waste water can reduce bacterial count to safe levels without contaminating the environment.
Food and Dairy Industry
Due to its non-toxicity anolyte is approved for use in the food industry for disinfection in a wide range of areas including preparation surfaces, pipes, transport systems and packaging.
Bacterial contamination of meat is an ever present problem. Aquacode can help with its powerful anolyte solution ideally
suited to surface cleaning of preparation areas, packing cases and transport systems yet without the problems associated
with traditional chlorine based chemicals.
Anolyte has been shown to be highly effective in destroying bacteria such as Vibrio and E.coli making a safer
product for consumers.
Misting or spraying glasshouses with anolyte gives effective bacterial and algal control. Disinfection of irrigation water.
Better vegetation and vegetables growth. Better resistance to weeds, smuts, fungi various parasites and diseases.
Better quality of the products.Crop increase without additional use of fertilizers.
Onsite anolyte generators can ensure a safe swimming environment without the unpleasant smell or eye stinging
effects of traditional chlorine based treatments. It is also safer for staff as they do not have to handle potentially
Anolyte is approved for use as a disinfecting agent for drinking water making it safe for consumption without the unpleasant smell and taste associated with conventional chlorine based water treatment.
Hotels and Public Facilities
Legionella is a major health problem in facilities with a large water system where parts are not often used such as hotel
rooms in low season. The unused areas can result in the build-up of Legionella and other health endangering bacteria
within the water system. The addition of an anolyte generator to the water system can prevent this without costly high

ELECTROLYZED OXIDIZING WATER OR IONIZED WATER SOLUTION
Aquacode™ Electrolyzed Water (EW, EOW or EO, also known as electrolyzed oxidizing water or ionyzed water solution) technology is the process of passing ordinary water or a diluted saline solution through a specially designed electrolytic cell in order to modify its functional properties without adding reagents. Aquacode™ solutions (anolyte and catholyte) have the demonstrated ability to:
Destroy microorganisms such as botrytis fungus, salmonella, e-coli, listeria and anthrax spores;
Purify water; and
Clean and Degrease.
Aquacode™ designs, markets, assembles and sells equipment that can produce two basic types of fluids:
1. Anolyte solutions are strong oxidizing solutions with a pH range of 2.5 – 8.5 and an Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) of +600 to +1200 mV. Anolyte can potentially be used as a broad spectrum germicidal agent to kill all types of microorganisms including viruses, fungi and bacteria.
2. Catholyte solutions are antioxidizing, mild alkaline solutions with a pH range of 10.5 to 12.0 and ORP of –600 to –900 mV. Catholyte solutions can potentially be used as degreasers or detergents.
Based on extensive research, both anolyte and catholyte solutions:
Are environmentally friendly
Are non-toxic to both humans and animals
Do not require special handling
Are powerful biocides
Can be safely disposed of in sewage systems
Can be used at all stages of disinfection and cleaning
At recommended concentrations, do not bleach surfaces or materials
Can be applied in liquid, ice or aerosol (fog) form
Yield by-products that are non-toxic, environmentally friendly and leave no synthetic chemical residue
Can be generated on-site, thus eliminating handling and storage of chemicals
Can be produced on-site from tap water and salt in required quantities and concentrations of active ingredients, pH and salinity (mineralization)
Anolyte contains among other things Hypochlorous Acid that is a highly potent bactericide. Bacteria such as Escherichia coli when exposed to Hypochlorous Acid lose viability in less than 100ms. Escherichia coli is a major cause of food and water-borne infections in humans.
In addition to killing bacteria anolyte is effective in breaking down Biofilms which protect the bacteria from the action of the hypochlorous acid.
As a hard-surface disinfectant anolyte application on a daily basis for more than a decade has demonstrated that microorganisms do not develop immunity to anolyte over time. This makes it possible to apply Aquacode equipment in a number of areas directly related to personal health and safety.
MORE ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE
The heart of Aquacode's technology is our cylindrical cell which is the only product on the market with a double cooling electrode system: anode and cathode electrode cooled.
Unlike other electrolytic cells, a membrane separates the Anolyte and the Catholyte solutions generated at the respective anode and cathode chambers of the cell. This prevents the two streams from mixing and forms a simple sodium hypochlorite solution, as is the case with many other commercially available electrolytic cells. Our cells are modular and can be disassembled if needed.
The technology contains components built in a unique way. Unlike other cylindrical coaxial cells, which are the most common today, our cell has been optimized, designed and developed with a special anode geometry that has enabled the integration of a double electrode (anode-cathode) cooling system.
Similar electrolysers have been known in the past, but it was not until the late 1970s that EW technology was developed by the Russian Institute of Medical and Scientific Research. Earlier models of EW products were sold throughout the former Soviet Union, generally for water disinfection and for hospital sterilization.
The invention used by Aquacode makes it possible to significantly expand its commercial applications and in this respect gives Aquacode ™ an undeniable advantage over existing competitors. Our cell is a membrane cell that is ion-permeable and separates fluid but also allows ion exchange due to porosity structures.
Aquacode cells are manufactured with varying production volumes.
Everything from 5L / h to 1200L / h anolyte per cell.
Combination of cells makes it possible to manufacture Aquacode units with higher capacity.
The anolyte can either be dosed directly into your system,
or alternatively to an accumulator tank if required
dosage varies. With the help of a sensor-controlled dosing pump, the dosing is adapted to the biological load in your system.
Requirements for our systems : access to salt, water and electricity.
The generators can be controlled by PLC with one
easy-to-use HMI (Human Machine interface) that allows the end user to precisely control the pH of the Anolyte and the correct dosage for a particular application.
The average cost to produce 1000 liters of anolyte in a European and North American country is about 3 EUR.
This makes the liquid a very cost-effective alternative to many chemicals used today.
