EWCO electrolyzed water systems utilize single cell technology and are different from almost every other electrolyzer on the market. The EWCO electrolyzers do not contain a
diaphragm (or membrane) but are a single stream system that generates only an anolyte solution. The pH of the generated anolyte solution depends on several
variables such as the pH of the additive, the pH of the flow water, and the amperage settings on the electrolysis cells.
Most other electrolyzed water systems are dual stream systems that contain a diaphragm (or membrane) separating the cathode from the anode. Dual stream systems operate under very high pressures and generate
two solutions, half of which is acidic electrolyzed water (containing hypochlorous acid
) and half of which is alkaline electrolyzed water (containing sodium hydroxide).
There are some electrolyzed water systems that are categorized as single stream but also contain a diaphragm. These systems combine the two electrolytes to generate one solution of pH neutral electrolyzed
water. These systems, like the dual stream systems, operate under very high pressures.
All systems that use membrane technology require frequent maintenance secondary to the high pressures inside the systems that cause the machines to break-down. Electrolyzers manufactured by EWCO do not contain a
diaphragm and are built
with the highest quality components for dependability. There are no high pressures and therefore minimal maintenance is required.
