Water activated by electrical discharge plasma is of interest from the viewpoint of its application in food production; therefore, its properties are discussed in the literature [1]. The current status of research on electrical discharge plasma was considered in [2].

Radiation of pulsed electrical discharge plasma has a strong chemical effect on water [3, 4]. In [3, 4] and in this study, pulsed electrical discharge occurred between electrodes located at a considerable distance (30 mm) from the water surface. There is no directed gas flow from the discharge cavity to the object being treated. Therefore, the products formed in the plasma could not directly contact with water. But relatively long-lived products (nitrogen oxides NO and \({\text{NO}}_{2}^{\centerdot }\)
