Technology Of Flow Through Ionizers

Analysing the electrolysis cell's chamber


You see on the left a simplified picture of what happens in the chamber of a simple diaphragm electrolysis cell to the dissolved anions and cations:
depending on the charge they will separately distribute themselves to the chambers.

The laid out decomposition voltage of the direct current breaks down the water molecules, so that on the right hydrogen and OHions occur.
On the left oxygen and H+ ions form and bond with H2O molecules to immediately make H3O+ ions.

With the 2 chamber system stagnant water is treated.

Warning: Depending on the necessary duration can water reach its boiling point.

With a flow through ionizer (left) is flowing water electrolyzed.
So that the flow of 1-2 liters/minute is reached successfully, is the water jet from the pre filter system dispersed onto various cells. Nowadays you typically get 3 cells with 2 chambers each.
Subsequently the alkaline, as well as the acidic water is brought together and flows out of the device from both of the outlets.


The advantages of having multiple cells in a flow through ionizer is, first of all, the much faster gain of activated water and, secondly, compared to batch ionizers, they are under pressure. The hydrogen and oxygen gained from electrolysis cannot escape. The solubility of these gases increases when under higher pressure.

Also the water temperature hardly increases with the flow rate of less than 1 minute/liter which further improves the solubility.
Also, chilled drinking water is generally preferred. There are also flow through ionizers with a built-in cooling compressor.

About Karl Heinz Asenbaum

The Munich-based journalist has been working on the topic of "alkaline activated water" since 2004. For 12 years he worked closely with the alternative physician Dr. Walter Irlacher, with whom he wrote two successful books: "Service Manual for Humans” (Service Handbuch Mensch) (2006) and "Drink Yourself Alkaline” (Trink Dich basisch) (2008,2011). Since 2014 he has been contributing his knowledge and experience to Aquacentrum and giving lectures worldwide. “Electro-activated Water", the world's most comprehensive book on the subject, was published in 2016. View all faqs by Karl Heinz Asenbaum
