Utilizing Copper/Silver Ionization
The LiquiTech® system is comprised of a control unit and a flow cell. Each flow cell contains sacrificial copper/silver electrodes. As water passes through the flow cell, a direct current is applied across the electrodes to stimulate the controlled release of ions. The rate at which the ions are release is automatically maintained by a solid-state, microprocessor-based control unit that is reliable and easy to operate.
Closed Loop Proportional Control
The ion emissions of the LiquiTech® ionization process are cationic, surface-active and a potent biocide. The disinfection action is attributable to the positively charged copper and silver ions which form electrostatic bonds with negatively charged sites on microorganism cell walls. These electrostatic bonds create stresses that lead to distorted cell wall permeability, reducing the normal intake of life sustaining nutrients. This action, coupled with protein denaturation, leads to cell lysis and death. The accurate dose-rate control system maintains precise ion levels, providing residual protection and prevention of recontamination. It is this residual protection that makes the LiquiTech® system superior to all other disinfection methods.
