New Frame Sized ECA Hygiene Generator For Smaller Industrial Applications


May 2018


Radical Waters (Pty) Ltd, innovators in Electrochemically Activated Water (ECA) solutions and leaders in the ECA hygiene generators space, have begun manufacture of a new model of an ECA hygiene generator that is available to the food, beverage, small scale disinfection and hospitality markets.

Due to demand for a smaller fully automated and self-contained sized hygiene generator, Radical Waters designed the N.O.W – Compact Frame (FR)- Hygiene Generator to address the market gap.

The frame generators are ideally suited for applications where a moderate amount of hygiene solutions would be required. The generators are competitively priced, fully automated and built with quality parts offering users on-site and on-demand hygiene solutions.  The ECA solutions generated by the Compact Frame Hygiene generator are dual stream, meaning that the generator produces both Anolyte (Disinfectant) with a FAC of >300ppm, @pH 6.5 and Catholyte (detergent) with ~400ppm NaOH @pH >11.4. The solutions are typically diluted according to the application.

ECA Hygiene generator

Industrial Features:

  • Compact –  requiring minimal floor space and can be easily moved.
  • PLC Controlled with HMI display.
  • Storage tank x 4 (Water, Salt, Anolyte and Catholyte)
  • Plate reactor and low chloride technology – ~36 ppm of Chlorides in final solutions (depending on source water chlorides and dilution applied).
  • Easy to use and requires access to softened or RO water, food grade salt and electricity.
  • Automated –  Designed to switch on and off as solution is depleted from their tanks.

Why Use ECA Instead of Traditional Chemicals?

  • ECA is an Eco-Friendly and an option to replace toxic chemicals with an environmentally safe pH neutral disinfectant/detergent
  • High efficacy in killing various microorganisms
  • Minimal production costs: 1 litre of Anolyte/Catholyte costs less than 0,01 USD to produce
  • Elimination of storage and handling of chemicals
  • Elimination of transport, therefore reducing CO2 emission footprint
  • Reduced Labour Liability

Typical ECA Applications:

  1. Cleaning in Place & Cleaning out of Place
  2. Surface Disinfection (Food and Surfaces)
  3. Ingredient in Sauce Manufacture
  4. Grain Decontamination
  5. Water Treatment

The N.O.W Compact ECA Frame Hygiene Generators are manufactured in the USA and are EPA certified.

The N.O.W Compact range is currently available in 40,60 & 80 litres per hour of concentrated solutions at a ratio of approximately 50%/50% of Anolyte vs Catholyte.
