About Anolyte and Catholyte
The Anolyte solution and Catholyte solution are the two distinct by products of the Electro Chemical Activation ( ECA Technology ) process. Basically the Anolyte solution is a disinfectant and the Catholyte is a detergent. These two solutions are used extensively by the Radical Waters clients in several different applications ranging from disinfection to cleaning in both an economical and an environmentally friendly manner.

The Anolyte solution is:
Anolyte at a neutral pH, is a mixed oxidant solution which includes hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and has a high Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) of approximately > + 900mV. The Anolyte solution can be manipulated according to specific application requirements and combinations of the solutions may be generated where a combined detergent and disinfectant effect is required.
The Catholyte solution is:
Catholyte, has a very low ORP of approximately < -650mV, and is produced at a pH of approximately 10.8. The Catholyte is a very effective detergent and is very efficient in removing a variety of soils ranging from syrups to fats and oils.
The combination of the reducing ORP in conjunction with the chemical constituents of Catholyte, produce an effective soil mobilising and detergent effect which has been shown to be effective in removing organic residues as well as biological biofilms
