How Is Electrolyzed Water Produced?

R-Water’s electrolyzed water technology is elegant in its simplicity. Tap water is channeled through two series of chambers. One has a positive electrical charge; the other has a negative electrical charge. A saturated saline solution is passed through an intermediate chamber lined with “smart” ion selective transfer membranes. These membranes allow ions to migrate into the electrically charged chambers. The membranes that line the chambers with a positive electrical charge allow only chloride ions to migrate into the chambers. The membranes that line the negatively charged chambers allow only sodium ions to migrate.

Chloride ions are negatively charged in nature. The negative ion is therefore naturally attracted to the positive electrical charge. The electrochemical interaction causes the chloride ion to convert from Cl or chloride to HOCl, or hypochlorous acid. The sodium ion is positively charged in nature and is therefore attracted to the negative electrical charge and is similarly converted from sodium (NA) to NaOH, or sodium hydroxide. The two solutions are produced at the levels specified by the customer and dispensed RTU.
