Commercial FAQ’s

Replicating mother nature’s process, Envirolyte’s diverse range of sanitation solutions can now answer your unanswered questions.

Why is it safe to use?

Envirolyte ANK Neutral Anolyte is made from electrolysed salt and water.  It is non-toxic, and breaks down to these components when returned to the environment.

How does an Envirolyte Unit work?

The unit utilises a patented cell to electrically activate a solution of common salt (NaCl).  There are two chambers within the cell, one positive (anode chamber) and the other negative (cathode chamber), they are separated by a diaphragm. A DC current passes through the solution producing anolyte from the positive chamber and catholyte out of the negative chamber.  The strength of the solutions varies according to the current flowing between the electrodes and gives different values for ORP (oxidation reduction potential), pH (acidity) and FAC (free available chlorine).  Each unit is adjustable if needed and can be customised to suit your requirements.

Anolyte: a pH neutral, fast-acting, non-toxic sanitiser pH 6.8 – 7.2

Catholyte: an alkaline, non-foaming detergent solution pH 11-13

Where can I use it?
