OPERATING PRINCIPLES

LOW-SALINITY HYDROLYSIS AND/OR ELECTROLYSIS

Water is composed of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen (H2O). At its roots, the word ‘hydrolysis’ means decomposition by reaction with water. The process of hydrolysis generates hydrogen and oxygen by means of electricity and water.

When an electric current passes through water, it breaks chemical bonds, the negative charges or oxygen ions emigrate to the positive electrode (anode) and the positively charged hydrogen ions are attracted to the negative electrode (cathode). The following decomposition reaction occurs:

Electrical energy +2 H2O --> 2 H2 + O2

As a result, this produces an extra negative element because there is one more electron (electrical energy) in the combination than there are protons. Now there is a single negatively charged hydroxide, known as a hydroxyl ion (OH-).

Various secondary reactions occur during hydrolysis which also produce ionic species with oxidizing and disinfecting activity, such as ozone (O3), monoatomic oxygen (O1) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).

The circuitry of our electronics transforms the current (220 V, 50 Hz) into a low-voltage, high-amperage direct current. This current is fed to some special titanium electrodes that are surface activated with noble metals, the electrodes are submerged in water as it circulates through a purpose-designed device.

The surfaces of these insoluble electrodes generate a combination of the most powerful oxidizing agents available for water disinfection, dismissing the need for chemical products.

If we incorporate a small amount of salt in the treatment (1 - 2 g of salt per litre of water), whether to cover a lack of conductivity or in order to generate a tangible residual level, the system will also generate a residual level of chlorine via low-salinity electrolysis. The products are generated, act, decompose and are then regenerated. The residual disinfectant produced by electrolysis does not cause any detrimental effects to the eyes, skin or indeed the health of swimmers. There is no need to worry about insufficient salt in the water, as the system would continue to disinfect in hydrolysis mode. Chlorine generated by the electrolysis process destroys organic matter and pathogens in the water, before finally transforming back into sodium chloride (common salt).

ULTRAVIOLET

Ultraviolet radiation at a wavelength of 253.7 nanometres destroys organic matter through a process of photolysis and photo-oxidation.

Thanks to our system’s DOUBLE length casing, the water is exposed to a high dose of UV-C radiation for a longer period.

The casing is made of ABS plastic to prevent accumulations of dirt and resists salt concentrations of up to 10 g of NaCl/L.

UV-C light destroys chloramines and eliminates LEGIONELLA without affecting the water’s physicochemical properties. Low-pressure UV-C lamps manufactured by Phillips have a lifetime of up to 9,000 hours.
