PRESS RELEASE: RADICAL WATERS (PTY) Ltd. SIGNS OEM AGREEMENT WITH ENVIROLYTE INDUSTRIES INTERNATIONAL Ltd. FOR THE BEVERAGE MARKET
Radical Waters (Pty) Ltd, innovators in Electrochemically Activated Water (ECA) solutions and leaders in the ECA CIP beverage industry and its application, have partnered with and signed an OEM agreement with Envirolyte Industries International Ltd. in Tallinn, Estonia.
Radical Waters and Envirolyte have combined their expertise and developed an ECA device specifically for CIP in the beverage industry.
“As corrosion concerns, simplicity and reliability of the ECA device are key concerns of beverage customers, we have created a robust device to achieve optimal efficacy, low salt, reduced residual chlorides, thereby eliminating any concerns of corrosion,” says David Friedland, Managing Director of Radical Waters.
Envirolyte have over a decade of knowledge in manufacturing ECA devices and patented reactor cells for a range of applications, and Radical Waters has developed and patented many applications. Radical Waters has been able to successfully penetrate the beverage market on a global scale, taking advantage of its IP in CIP beverage in various countries.
“We see Radical Waters as a well-established Company, specifically with profound knowledge in the CIP market and its application protocols, having many successful installations with world leading companies in beer and beverage. Our understanding and vision is that by combining our technical strength with the Radical Waters application, sales and marketing expertise, we can create a new synergy for the CIP market and continue to come up with more advanced products that better serve the customer,” states Valeri Ilchenko, CEO of Envirolyte Industries International Ltd.
ECA CIP: THE NEW “N.O.W – Impact, Device” for Beverage CIP:
ECA is familiar in the beverage industry, and known to offer its clients a safe and competitive alternative to traditional CIP chemicals.

While there are many versions of Anolyte available in the market, Radical Waters and Envirolyte have created a highly specific range of ECA solutions that are tailored specifically for the Beverage industry.
This new ECA CIP range falls under the new brand of Radical Waters N.O.W (Neutral Oxidant Water) Impact range of ECA devices.
The N.O.W impact range is currently available in 100, 200 and 300 litres per hour of concentrated Anolyte and Catholyte respectively. Being remarkably simple in design by comparison to previous models, Radical Waters anticipate that the cost of these devices will be reduced by around 30%.

The technical characteristics of the solutions in terms of product efficacy are a competitive 500ppm FAC (Free Available Chlorine) for Anolyte and 1000ppm NaOH for the Catholyte, which is produced on-site and on demand.
In comparison to prior Radical Waters ECA models, as well as other ECA CIP generators currently in the market, customers of the Radical Waters N.O.W Impact beverage hygiene devices, powered by Envirolyte, can look forward to:
- Less moving parts and control functions ensuring greater reliability
- Robust device for long term use
- Separate Anolyte and Catholyte cells with minimal waste
- A Cell life of 5 years expected (RO or soft water and good quality salt must be used), reducing costs
- Greatly improved cell descale frequency
- Remote monitoring that can be included, GSM or Ethernet for reduced maintenance cost
- A simple installation
- Reduced device prices with less capital required, and an increase in ROI and payback
- Greatly reduced energy consumption per kg of FAC produced for reduced running costs
- Simplified, operator user-friendly software
- Easy integration into CIP stations
- Lower Chlorides to meet stringent industry requirements
- Corrosion free device enclosures
ECA offers the Beverage industry and other clients reduced costs through:
- An option to replace toxic chemicals with an environmentally safe pH neutral disinfectant/detergent
- High efficacy killing 99,9% of microorganisms
- Minimal production costs: 1 litre of Anolyte/Catholyte costs less than 0,01 USD to produce
- Good ROI in CIP (Time, Energy and Chemical Savings)
- Removal of storage and handling of chemicals
- Elimination of transport, therefore reducing CO2 emission footprint
- Reduced Labour Liability
“Radical Waters is excited and confident that with this new range of devices available to its customers ECA use in the CIP beverage industry will grow exponentially,” concludes Friedland

Envirolyte have developed a unique group of companies which is focused on the water purification, sterilization and disinfecting industries. The roots of the group have developed through support and application of earlier technology including Electrolyzed Water (EW, EOW or EO, also known as electrolyzed oxidizing water, electro activated water or ionized water solution) in its earliest form. Envirolyte have brought to the above industries earlier experiences which have enabled us to better deliver potential and application of Electrolyzed Water technology to a wide array of industrial and domestic problems on a large scale. This gives us a strong technical edge over our competition and allows us to build a broad range of support services on a national and international basis. Together with dedicated specialist companies we have built channels to market and service clients from the largest major corporate to the smallest domestic household, offering advice on all aspects of water purification, sterilization and disinfecting. www.envirolyte.com
