The effectiveness of batch ionizers
Batch ionizers have been known since 1931.
They are the initial and easiest way to gain electrolytically activated water.
The producers have not yet received a design prize. Functionality lies at the forefront. These devices cost a third of what a decent flow through ionizer would cost you.
They consist of an electrolysis cell with a cathode chamber (1) and an anode chamber (2), which are separated by a diaphragm membrane.
The chambers are filled manually with filtered water (4).
A DC power supply feeds electricity for electrolysis which is controlled with operating buttons and a timer.
The pictured AQUAVOLTA® BTM 3000 has a capacity of 2 x 2 liters. In one operation (30 - 90 minutes depending on the water hardness) 2 liters of alkaline activated water can be produced.
This is then filled automatically into the 2 liter storage container (5). At the same time 2 liters of acidic residual water are produced.
When operating the device one has to determine the timing for the desired pH value of 9 - 9,5. This is specific to the source water and cannot be predicted exactly.
As a rule of thumb one can specify:
- soft water with a hardness up to dH 9: ca. 30 minutes
- medium hard water with hardness dH 10 - 15: ca. 45 minutes
- hard water dH 16 - 20: ca. 60 minutes
- very hard water dH 21 - 25: ca. 75 minutes
- extremely hard over dH 25: 90 minutes or more
These hardness measurements (°dH) are the German hardness degrees which you are able to get from your local water supplier. 1o dH corresponds to 0.1783 mmol/l. and 1.78 °fH (French hardness degree).
