Electrolysis and contamination

Another factor we must consider is electrolysis, particularly the dissolution of metallic (stainless steel) electrodes at 50-60 Hz, which could contaminate the finished products, and/or contribute to undesirable chemical reactions. Several measures have been taken to circumvent this problem. For example, commercial facilities using frequencies above 100 kHz showed no apparent indications of metal hydrolysis after 3 years (the industry safety standard). Low frequencies such as 50 or 60 Hz power can be used with inert carbon or coated electrodes without causing noticeable dissolution. Some new plastic materials with suitable electrical and mechanical properties can be used for housing the electrodes and for lining the stainless steel pipes through which food products flow.
