About Anolyte and Catholyte


Anolyte is a natural disinfectant liquid solution. Catholyte is a natural mild liquid detergent

These ECA solutions are the two distinct products of the Radical Waters ElectroChemical Activation (ECA Technology) process.

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.

If you would like to know more about Anolyte and Catholyte or the the ECA Technology process then read on.

The Anolyte solution is:

  • A pH neutral solution (pH between 6.8 and 7.3)
  • A high ORP solution (ORP above +900mV when fresh)
  • A highly effective broad spectrum disinfectant

    Anolyte at a neutral pH is a mixed oxidant solution with the main species being hypochlorous acid (HOCl).

    “Hypochlorous Acid occurs naturally in the human body in response to invading organisms in order to protect the body from harm”

    The Catholyte solution is:

  • An alkaline pH solution (pH between 10.7 and 11.1)
  • A low ORP solution (ORP less than -400mV when fresh, up to +200mV when stored for a few days)
  • A effective detergent and cleaning agent

    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.
