ANW type of anolyte generators

Envirolyte EL-....ANW or ELA-.....ANW anolyte machines are designed to produce anolyte using lesser amount of salt and energy. About 1,5 g of NaCL and ~ 4 W of energy are required to generate 1 L of anolyte with ~ 500 ppm of FAC which is accordingly 5 and 2,5 times less than in standard ELA machines.

Reduction of salt and energy consumption is critical for such markets like municipal water treatment,health care, industrial applications where high level of sanitation is required with no or very low residue of salts, also applications where risk of corrosion is critical and therefore content of chlorides in the treated water must be reduced to minimum, e.g. cooling towers and cooling water disinfection.

Apart from salt and energy consumption Envirolyte ELA-..... ANW anolyte generators have some distinct differences from our standard ELA or EL type of machines such as:

  • as always pH of ANW anolyte depends on pH of the source water but generally it is pH~7,5.It is standard specification of ANW type of generators but optionally pH can be regulated in the range pH~2,5-7,5.Regulation of pH requires installation of some extra components in ANW machines. Therefore your requirement for pH correction should be specified when ordering;
  • contrary to the standard anolyte generators ANW type of machines do not produce catholyte as a side product in a commercially viable volumes. Flow of catholyte is ~ 0,4% of the total flow specific for a particular machine, it is totally based on water and can be safely disposed to environment. Therefore should your application imply use of catholyte we advise to consider EL or ELA standard anolyte generator or special catholyte generator;

Installation requirements for ANW type of anolyte generators are similar to those of EL or ELA type of machines.
