Water Treatment

CTi has put substantial resources in R&D, patenting, designing and testing our Cavitation-Electrocoagulation System® for waste water treatment. CTi’s system provides a scalable solution to treat processed water, removes heavy metals, oil and grease, and breaks down hydrocarbon emulsions in mater, toxins and bacteria. CTi’s system achieves all these benefits while also lowering disposal costs and associated liabilities.

Water Recycling – CTi’s Technology to Improve Society’s Capacity for Water Reuse
Turning Water Into Gold

Current regulations and practices for water management are becoming more restrictive and water treatment services are becoming more regulated. The growing needs of man are in turn making it vital that a more long-term solution to cater to the hydrological needs of the increasing population growth is found. Water recycling will be a must, as evidence of shortages across the globe, but a viable technological solution will need to be procured.

Cavitation technology through CTi nanotech is that solution.

The problem with many practices today is that they are for an immediate result, without contemplation of the aftermath. This has led to the wasting of many resources, but none more valuable than water. One example is the fracking industry, where there are millions of barrels of water wasted every day, with wells ever-growing wider and deeper. The wastewater produced in processes such as these possesses the extreme potential to have the script re-written—utilizing and reusing the precious resource of water. From treating water produced by mining outfits to turning wastewater into a resource to areas in society that could utilize the remediated water—CTi nanotech can help start to quench global water shortages.

Taking the Waste out of Waste Water

The effectiveness of water disinfection by direct electrolysis is several times higher compared to chemical methods. Direct electrolysis of water helps to remove chromaticity, hydrogen sulfide, ammonium of the source water. Direct electrolysis destroys chloramines, converting them into nitrogen and salt.

Disinfection of water by direct electrolysis is a kind of oxidative treatment of water but is fundamentally different from the common methods of disinfection in that the oxidizers are made from the water itself, and are not introduced from the outside and, having fulfilled its function, go back to the previous state.

Chlorine, which is necessary to prevent secondary bacterial contamination of water in distribution networks, is activated from natural mineral salts in water passing through the electrolyzer and instantly dissolves in it.

The difference between “direct electrolysis” and “production and accumulation of sodium hypochlorite” is that the use of special electrodes makes it possible to produce ozone and hydrogen peroxide from water.

During direct electrolysis, when the source water passes through the electrolyzer, oxidizers such as oxygen, ozone, hydrogen peroxide, sodium hypochlorite are synthesized, instantly showing their oxidative properties.

The process uses high quality industrial mixed metal oxides (MMOs) anodes for both oxygen and chlorine evolution to address needed quality of water and the specific needs of the customers

Cavitation and Water Purification system is Capable of Removing the Following:

  • – heavy metals
  • – Fats
  • – Oil
  • – Grease
  • – Complex organics
  • – Bacteria
  • – Viruses and cysts
  • – Suspended and colloidal solids

CTI maximizes the reuse of resource materials, slashes transportation and disposal costs, and mitigates the associated liabilities. What is more, operating costs can be dramatically reduced. The decrease in produced sludge can reach 60% when compared to conventional chemical treatment methods. Cavitation is an engine that is highly efficient and can help energize a paradigm shift that needs to take place in water management.

Benefits of Cavitation and water electrolysis

The simultaneous action of hydrodynamic cavitation, nano bubbles aeration and Electrooxidation formed in situ provide a unique synergistic effect that results in a highly efficient purification process.

Cavitation with nano bubble aeration, and water electrolysis is the most effective technologies for the treatment of waters containing soluble organic compounds, can directly and indirectly oxidize small organic pollutants.

Let’s break down the benefits of cavitation in water treatment by category:


  • – Low power requirements
  • – Low capital and maintenance costs
  • – Minimal operator attention
  • – Mitigated expenses with no chemical additions
  • – Fewer materials and material replacements needed
  • – Consistent and reliable results


  • – Naturally recycles water
  • – Less wasted resources
  • – Less harmful chemicals in the environment
  • – Tolerance to a wide variation in the waste stream, leading to less discharge

Wine & Spirits

CTi’s technology accelerates the aging process of wine and spirits by altering the composition and molecular structure of esters found in alcohol. Moreover, our technology also reduces harmful chemicals and toxins naturally found in alcoholic beverages which enhances the taste and has shown to alleviate the “hangover” effect.

Removing the Headache from Wine Consumption

CTi has developed a patented method for obtaining desirable molecular changes in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages by subjecting those beverages to flow-through advanced hydrodynamic cavitation. This scientific process changes the molecular profile of beverages, enhancing the benefits and mitigating the pitfalls associated with alcohol consumption.


There is a fine line between the completion of the wine aging process and when the wine starts to decline. There is no precise criteria other than taste sensation and aroma that are both employed to determine whether the aging is complete, and when the wine starts to decline. Following the “peak period”, or the window of time when the wine has reached its pinnacle quality state—the process of declining or deterioration begins, resulting in a loss of qualitative wine properties.

In the commercial wine industry, antioxidants and food additives are introduced to prevent oxidation and preserve the wines’ flavor and color. The sulfur dioxide, sodium, and potassium bisulfites, ascorbic acid, and/or other preservatives that are placed in wine to serve this purpose only exacerbate the negative effects that are the aftermath of wine consumption.

An Improved Alternative

Hydrodynamic cavitation-assisted wine aging treatment significantly improves color, palatability, mellowness, and bouquet—achievements that occur in minutes, rather than years, as seen in oak barrel aging. This accelerates the wine to its peak, where the wine exhibits stability and has achieved its preferred state for consumption.

CTi’s proprietary cavitation approach is an expedited conversion that resembles wine that was subjected to traditional oak barrel maturation. By applying optimized levels of both pressure and temperature to the beverage using flow-through hydrodynamic cavitation, the process alters the molecular composition of wine and accelerates the conversion of ingredients to obtain superior homogeny. The complete cavitation-assisted wine aging results in a smoother taste and reduced adverse after-effects.

Ultimately this also means an extended peak period as well as shelf life, and a superior mouth-feel, flavor, bouquet, color, and body—all while preserving the wines’ flavor and color without the harmful chemical extensions.

Cost Savings and Equipment Longevity

The optimized usage of a flow-through hydrodynamic reactor lowers equipment, handling, and energy costs by accelerating the production of a consumable beverage. Equipment costs are drastically slashed as expensive oak barrels, prone to biological contaminations, are no longer required. Although wood may be included in the downstream processing to cause desirable changes in the taste, it is actually not necessary.

As they say, time is money, and the cavitation process of wine aging can be carried out almost instantaneously. Moreover, the expedient aging and maturation negate costs related to storage and warehousing space over extended periods of time. Because the conventional aging method is no longer required, there is no longer a need for residence containers for processing as is with conventional barrel aging.

CTi’s technology accelerates the aging process of wine and, furthermore spirits, by altering the composition and molecular structure of esters found in alcohol. The technology reduces harmful chemicals and toxins naturally found in alcoholic beverages, all while enhancing the taste and alleviating the “hangover” effect. The clinical proof is there—CTi’s breakthrough technology was used on gin that won a Double Gold Medal at the 2011 World Spirits Competition in San Francisco and produced the highest-rated American vodka at the 2011 Ultimate Spirits Challenge in New York.

Vegetable Oil Refining

CTi has successfully developed a disruptive new technology; the CTi Nano Reactor System® and Nano Neutralization® Process to address the needs of the edible vegetable oil refining industry. Our patented technology offers unparalleled performance by increasing oil yield, lowering operating costs, significantly reducing chemical consumption, improving oil quality, reducing environmental impact and CO2 foot print.

The demand for the edible vegetable oil industry has historically grown at over 5% per year, even during periods of global economic instability. Vegetable oil refineries process a variety of different types of oil including soybean oil, palm oil, grapeseed oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil, olive oil, and cottonseed oil. The caveat with the edible vegetable oil industry is the fact that although the market is evergreen in its consistency, its technology remains stagnant and its methods of refining the oil itself are extremely antiquated.

Edible Vegetable oil refineries worldwide are required to remove impurities and volatile components from many different types of oil before they go to market. This is important for several reasons, with the first and foremost being that the oil is intended for consumption, so it must be safe.

Important metrics that follow include improved shelf-life and mitigated cost for refinement. What the industry needs now is the capacity to optimize its refining processes and mitigate the chemicals needed to treat and purify the oil.

Enter CTi’s Nano Reactor® technology for edible vegetable oil refining

The Results are Clear

When using a Nano Reactor®, the output of edible vegetable oil increases at the minimum of 0.2%. Volatile components that negatively affect oil’s taste, odor, and capacity for longevity are diminished by deodorization that happens naturally through cavitation. Rather than employing traditional methods through a steam injection under a high vacuum and increased temperature, processes can be modified to incorporate the use of CTi’s flow-through systems.
CTi’s proprietary procedure facilitates the expansion of forward-thinking innovations for the refinement of edible vegetable oil, including water degumming, bleaching, and deodorization. Pumping the mixture of oil and water through a hydrodynamic Nano Reactor® maximizes the symbiotic blending of water and oil, and substantially cuts the costs of oil refineries to do what is necessary for their product to be delivered to the market.

Overall, edible vegetable oil refinement can evolve with the times through cavitation, and with CTi’s Nano Reactor® technology, it can be launched into a more equitable and sustainable future.
