Place where innovations meet with customers` needs
In addition to the supply of our products, we are specialised for target individual solutions with a wide range of applications. Arhel provides its partners with custom made devices, necessary for the realization of complex products and services. We cover the areas of application of advanced tools in industrial production, research laboratories, as well as in the field of biotechnology and the environment.

Today, we meet all over with a need for increased energy efficiency of processes, reduced water use and resources and prevention of production of wastes. Similar requirements are also encountered in research laboratories.In Arhel, we have developed several exciting solutions in these areas. They allow testing of a larger number of samples in a short time, with less water consumption, chemicals and energy, or the execution of tests, which require specific solutions for power supply and signal detection. Among the most important products, we can name:
Electrolytic cells represent advanced electro-chemical technology solution for treatment of water. We have introduced them for the degradation of persistent compounds and removal of metal ions. Their operation is based on the electrochemical oxidation processes, where no addition of chemicals for their degradation is needed. The operation is based on the formation of short-lived but highly reactive hydroxyl radicals (•HO) produced by electricity. Hydroxyl radicals (•HO) are capable of oxidative degradation and mineralisation of pollutants and elimination of dangerous bacteria. For the formation of hydroxyl radicals, a variety of anode materials are used, such as graphite, platinum, and metal-doped materials. As an anode material with the highest potential of formation of hydroxyl ions, a boron-doped diamond anode (BDDA) is being used. BDDA are very stable and, therefore, safe for processing of drinking water. We developed the solution within the project LIFE PharmDegrade.
For the implementation of complex analytical procedures, non-standard measuring instruments with analogue and digital real-time data processing are needed. We have prepared a number of solutions for various clients at home and abroad.
To be able to understand the complex events in the aquatic environment, we have developed a portable measuring suitcase. It is equipped with probes for sensing the physical, chemical and biological parameters in the aquatic environment. The set of measuring probes can be adjusted according to the environmental conditions and monitoring needs.
An innovation represents a probe equipped with fluorescent sensors for the detection of plant pigments (chlorophyll a and phycocyanin) in natural aquatic environments, enabling the evaluation of cyanobacteria and other phytoplankton populations. Integration of probes into a mobile device enables to obtain continuous temporal and spatial information on the status of the water body, which is not possible by classic approaches of collecting of water samples.
Demonstration of the solution in the natural environment was carried out within the framework of the project LIFE Stop CyanoBloom.
Arhel is a specialised engineering company in the field of a wide range of products that require the installation of mechatronic assemblies.
Our clients are companies in the field of measurements, telecommunications, security, as well as research institutions who need individual components or integrated product with built-in mechatronic assembly. A typical example of a complex combination of electronic and mechanical components has been a development and manufacture of safety suitcase for money transfer. The microcontroller system controls the multilevel opening of the drawer, alarms set, sound activation, smoke and pyrotechnic protection systems through RFID and electrical locks.
