The name "STEL" Vitold Bakhir introduced for the devices developed by him for producing disinfectant and sterilizing solutions - anolytes, which combined two words "STERILITY" and "ELECTROCHEMISTRY". STEL devices (AKVATRON-05) - a class of devices for electrochemical synthesis of anolyte ANK.
STEL devices are manufactured in accordance with the patents of the Russian Federation No. 2033807, 2038322, 2076847, 2088539, 2155719, 2207983, 2208589, 2322397, 2321681, 2350692.
STEL devices are used for production of highly effective electrochemically activated ecologically clean and pure functional solutions:
- Anolytes (anolyte ANK, anolyte ANK SUPER, anolyte PEROX, anolyte A and many others) - disinfecting, sterilizing and detergent solutions, pharmaceutical substance (remedy);
- Catholytes (Catholyte K, Catholyte Perox and many others) – detergent and extracting solutions.
STEL devices are developed and serially produced with productivity from 10 to 500 l/h of electrochemically activated solutions of all types (acid and neutral anolyte, alkaline and neutral catholyte). Level of its technical perfection is determined by ability of producing activated solutions with possibly lowest mineralization and possibly largest concentration of metastable active substances.
Models of STEL devices
Anolyte ANK –disinfecting and sterilizing solution, produced from initial sodium chloride solution, with neutral pH.
Active substances: chlorine-oxigen and hydroperoxide oxidants.
Field of application: medicine, housing and communal services, industry, agriculture, veterinary, transport.
Objects for disinfection: surfaces, medical instruments and equipment, water, air, food raw materials, food products, plants.
Anolyte PEROX –disinfecting and sterilizing solution with highly pronounced detergent ability with neutral pH.
Active substances: percarbonic acids and hydroperoxide substances.
Field of application: R&D, medicine, housing and communal services, industry, agriculture, veterinary.
Objects for disinfection: medical instruments and equipment, surfaces, water, air, food raw materials, food products, plants.
Solutions: various types of anolytes –disinfecting and sterilizing solutions with different pH depending on technological requirements.
Active substances: percarbonic, perphosphoric and peracetic acids and mixture of electrochemically activated metastable organic and inorganic substances at total mineralization of anolytes no more than 1 g/l.
Fields of application: R&D, public health service, housing and communal services, industry, agriculture, veterinary.
Objects for disinfection: any objects in technological cycles, surfaces, medical instruments and equipment, water, air, food raw materials, food products, plants.
Each STEL device consists of obligatory and essential part of each electrochemical device – flow-through electrochemical diaphragm reactor from MB elements (till 2009 – FEM elements), as well as hydraulic system for supply of initial solution into reactor and getting of electrochemical synthesis products from reactor, power supply.
Classification of STEL devices
|Device model||Type of produced metastable solution||Main active substances of metastable solution||Note|
|STEL-ANK-SUPER||Anolyte ANK SUPER||Chlorine-oxigen and hydroperoxide oxidants||Total content of soluble substances in Anolyte ANK SUPER at oxidants concentration 500 mg/l is no more than 0,5 g/l|
|STEL-ANK-PRO||Anolyte ANK||Chlorine-oxigen and hydroperoxide oxidants||Total content of soluble substances in Anolyte ANK at oxidants concentration 500 mg/l is no more than 1,0 g/l|
|STEL-10N-120-01||Anolyte ANK||Chlorine-oxigen and hydroperoxide oxidants||Total content of soluble substances in Anolyte ANK at oxidants concentration 500 mg/l is no more than 5,0 g/l|
Reduced forms of soluble substances and water
|Total content of soluble substances in initial water (chlorides, sulphates, alkali and alkaline-earth metals carbonates) – no more than 1,0 g/l|
|STEL-PEROX||Anolyte PEROX Catholyte K||Percarbonic acid, peroxocarbonates Reduced forms of soluble substances and water||Total content of soluble substances both ib Anolyte PEROX and Catholyte K is no more than 1,0 g/l|
|STEL-UNIVERSAL||Anolytes A, PEROX, ANPHOS, ALOX-M Catholyte K||Chlorine-oxigen and hydroperoxide oxidants, percarbonic, perphosphoric, peracetic acids. Reduced forms of soluble substances and water||Total content of soluble substances both in anolytes and catholyte is no more than 1 g/l|
Note: STEL-10N-120-01 device belongs to the first generation of STEL devices as against the other STEL devices mentioned in the table, which are the devices of second generation except STEL-ANK-SUPER device. STEL-ANK-SUPER device is the device of last generation, has the best level of salt conversion (98 – 99 %%) and produces anolyte with best parameters.
Many years’ experience of STEL devices and application of electrochemically activated anolyte ANK as disinfecting and sterilizing solution in many hospitals in Russia and abroad showed:
- Efficacy against all pathogenic microorganisms including spores;
- Absence of microorganisms resistance to anolyte;
- Detergent, disinfecting and sterilizing abilities;
- Absence of toxicity thanks to active substances similar to substances produced in macroorganisms under phagocytosis;
- Ecological compatibility and absence of accumulation in the environment;
- Simplicity and conveniences in exploitation;
- Economy and high payback;
