Colloidal Silver(CS) is produced by an electrolysis
process. The making of colloidal silver requires 2 silver electrodes
to be placed in a glass container of water and the appropriate electric
current applied. The vast majority of CS generators being offered today
use batteries in a series wired arrangement which supply DC voltage and
current. With battery voltage potential applied, the water acts as a conductive
medium as tiny particles of silver sinter off one of the silver electrodes
and go into the water. Ideally, the silver particles should remain suspended
in the water as a colloid solution due to the positive electric
charge on each silver particle which allows the particles to repel
each other and remain suspended.
Many individuals advertising CS generators for sale are making claims
of superior or unique generator design, but in reality most of them are
assembling a standard, series battery design generator based on
ideas freely provided by physicist Dr Bob Beck at lectures given at alternative
health expos throughout the United States from 1993-98.
Standard CS generators will indeed produce colloidal silver,
however, the standard generator design has a flaw. It produces an undesirable
phenomena called current runaway, especially when used in conjunction
with a production method which calls for a pinch of table salt to be added to
the water or allows the use of non distilled water (tap water, well water, spring water, bottled water, etc). The use of table salt or
non distilled water will allow the positive charged silver particle coming off the silver wire to combine with negatively charged ions in the water and result in a salt precipitate of that union. For example, the silver can combine with chlorine ions in the water and produce silver chloride, a white salt precipitate. When the silver particle unites with oxygen in the water, it produces silver oxide, a black or gray looking precipitate. In addition, the use of non distilled water can produce
yet other silver salts due to the silver particles combining with
minerals found in the water. We can avoid these undesirable byproducts by always using distilled water when making colloidal silver.When using a standard generator design, however, the CS solution will sometimes
appear black or gray in color and can produce puddles of silver
float to the top of the solution even when distilled water is used
and the pinch of salt is avoided. Why? Because of current runaway.
Educate-Yourself modified the standard generator design based on the
work of scientist/inventor Merlin D. Wolf. Merlin had suggested
important CS generator circuit design improvements which allows the user
to produce an extremely high quality grade of colloidal silver without
undesirable byproducts mentioned above. In addition, Merlin has worked
out a better production protocol that further enhances the quality
and quantity of CS produced, even for first time users.
Merlin's design improvements include a method of limiting the current
in such a way as to prevent current runaway. A few CS generator
makers have attempted to address the problem of current runaway by limiting
the current, however, the circuit design chosen by these manufacturers
has also resulted in lowering the applied voltage dramatically.
The problem with lowering the applied voltage is that it takes much more
time (3 hours instead of 30minutes) to
produce a given concentration of colloidal silver using this type of
voltage limiting generator.
The Merlin Wolf design improvements incorporated into the Deluxe
Colloidal Silver Generator will maintain full applied voltage
while simultaneously limiting the current. This prevents current
runaway from occurring. By using the Deluxe Generator in conjunction
with the 5 pages of step-by-step instructions provided with the generator,
the first time user canproduce a finer quality colloidal
silver than the extremely expensive CS sold in health food stores. Colloidal
silver produced with our Deluxe Colloidal Silver Generator has demonstrated
a shelf life of over 13 years (CS I made in 1997) without the need for stabilizers (see photo on right). Many
brands of colloidal silver sold in health food stores would have a shelf
life of only a few weeks without the addition of stabilizers.
Stabilizers, however, should be avoided.
There are 2 versions of the Deluxe Generator available. The DC version
only uses batteries and can be taken anywhere to make CS on the spot. The
AC/DC version has both batteries and an AC transformer power supply
that allows the generator to be plugged into a wall outlet if you don't
want to use the batteries or run low on battery energy. The physical description
of the generators are as follows:
The DC Deluxe Model Colloidal Silver Generator (battery power only) is housed in
a bone color plastic box measuring 2.75" x 4.6" x 1.5", and runs
on three nine volt batteries. It has two LEDs, two switches, one set of
6 inch silver electrodes, a jack for the silver electrodes, one incandescent
grain-of-wheat bulb, as well as an additional circuit design that distinguishes
it from generators sold by others. This special circuit controls current
'runaway' while maintaining the voltage at an optimum level, a benefit
not offered by others who advertise current limiting generator designs.
This design greatly reduces the need to clean the electrodes while simultaneously
providing a more "foolproof" production method that guarantees an excellent
batch of colloidal silver the first time, and every time. The set of 6
inch silver electrodes provided with the generator are molded and bonded
to a rubberized 6' cord and terminated with a 3.5 mm plug. This unit is
available as a premium gift for a donation of $133 plus $6 Priority shipping w/ Delivery confirmation = $139within the USA shipping. Outsie USA Priority shipping is $133 + Priority shipping = total)
** Free Japanese Mini Timer now included with every Colloidal Silver Generator (while supplies last)**
The Mini Timer is used to time the two minute intervals between polarity reversals. You set the timer for 2 minutes and hit the start button, Whe it arrives at 00:00, it beeps loudly and then resets automatically to two minutes. A strong neodymium magnet embedded in the back will adhere to any convenient metal surface such as a refrigerator or range hood..This timer will count up (or down) to 99 minutes and 59 seconds and is really convenient for all types of timer applications.
The DCDeluxe Model Generator with AC adapter offers all the features of the DC Deluxe model with the addition of an internal conversion power supply, an AC input jack, and an AC transformer which allows for operation from a wall outlet. This option saves on batteries as well as offers you the opportunity to make colloidal silver even when you run out of battery power. A useful option to consider if finances permit. A set of 6 inch, 14 gauge silver electrrodes, a plastic electrodes cleaner pad, a Free Mini Timer, and 5 pages of crystal clear instructions are included with each generator. Offered as a premium gift for a donation of $163. (If ordering three or more,you can earn an additional 10% donation reduction at $147 per unit *).
* Any combination of three or more generators is OK to take advantage of reduced donationoffer.
Obtaining extra replacement silver electrodes with your generator
is recommended. See the Products
page from our web site for a description of the various lengths and thickness
of silver electrodes available. You can learn much more about the attributes and usage of colloidal silver
