Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

WE CLAIM:

CLAIM 1. An apparatus for obtaining washing and disinfecting solutions by means of electrolysis of a sodium chloride water solution, the apparatus comprising:
a) at least one electrochemical cell which contains vertical coaxial cylindrical and rod electrodes and a diaphragm, each of which are made from material which is nonsoluble during electrolysis; each of the electrodes mounted in dielectric bushings and connected to the poles of a power supply;
b) the diaphragm comprising an ultrafiltration ceramic diaphragm made from a base material of zirconium oxide and installed between the electrodes; the diaphragm separating an inter-electrode space into a negative electrode chamber and a positive electrode chamber;
c) the dielectric bushings comprising a lower bushing and an upper bushing, each having a channel for the treated solution supply into and discharge from the electrode chambers; the channels being connected to a feeding line and a discharge line;
d) a feeding line connected to an inlet of the negative electrode chamber, the feeding line comprising a water line and a sodium chloride dosing line, the feeding line further including a metering pump on the water line for dosing the sodium chloride into the water to be treated;
e) the water line further containing a flow regulator connected to the feeding and discharging adjustments; and f) an outlet of the negative electrode chamber being connected to an inlet of the positive electrode chamber by a special line, the. special line having an adjustment for discharging a part of a degasified processed solution from the negative electrode chamber.
Claim 2. The apparatus as claimed in claim 1 further comprising a catalyst chamber mounted on the special line for providing catalyst.

Claim 3. The apparatus as claimed in claim 1 further comprising the catalyst chamber and/or a flotation chamber wich mounted on the special line after the catalyst chamber.
Claim 4. The apparatus as claimed in claim 3 wherein the flotation chamber is executed as a vertical cylindrical closure volume with a tangential inlet in the it midle part.
Claim 5. The apparatus as claimed in anyone of claims 1 -4 wherein the catalyst chamber contains a mixture of particles of carbon and manganese dioxide.
Claim 6. The apparatus as claimed in anyone of claims 1 -5 wherein the adjustment for discharging a part of the degasified processed solution is executed as a separator with a tangential inlet.
Claim 7. The apparatus as claimed in anyone of claims 1 -6 wherein the adjustments for the feeding and discharging of treated solution are executed as a collectors for parallel joining of two and more cells.
