Copper Silver Ionization

What is Copper Silver Ionization?

Copper silver ionization is a non-chemical water treatment technology regarded as the most clinically effective prevention and remediation solution for Legionella, the bacteria responsible for Legionnaires' disease (Legionellosis). During this treatment, ions are systematically introduced into the water using a byproduct-free method to rid plumbing infrastructure of Legionella bacteria and other waterborne pathogens.

Why Copper Silver Ionization?

Copper silver ionization is the most effective technology for systemic disinfection of Legionella in potable water systems. In field evaluations, this technology has yielded the best results over a wide range of water conditions and temperatures, and is backed by more than 100 independent research studies. CSI introduces disinfectant ions to travel throughout the plumbing infrastructure and attack Legionella living downstream, embedded in various parts of the plumbing distribution system. CSI does not require consumables that are unsafe for handling. The ions introduced into the water supply are safe for human consumption and will not cause damage to the plumbing environment.

HOW DOES COPPER SILVER IONIZATION WORK?

The ions produced by the ionization process are cationic, surface-active, and a potent biocide. The treatment action is attributable to the positively charged copper and silver ions forming electrostatic bonds with negatively charged sites on microorganism cell walls. These electrostatic bonds create stresses that lead to distorted cell wall permeability, disrupting the intake of life-sustaining nutrients, and ultimately leading to cell lysis. Bacteria are killed, rather than merely suppressed as is the case with alternative Legionella treatment methods. The accurate dose-rate control system maintains precise ion levels, providing residual protection and prevention of recontamination.

 
Features and Benefits of Copper Silver Ionization
  • Safe and non-toxic

    No hazardous handling concerns, and will not harm your pipes or environment.

  • Low consumable cost

    No expensive and hazardous chemicals to store or handle.

  • Turnkey maintenance

    Based on unique facility needs and requirements.

  • Validated eradication

    EPA-registered solution for killing Legionella in drinking water with both the federal and state EPA in all 50 states.

  • Effective solution

    It can take less than 48 hours to eradicate Legionella. With CSI, pathogens are killed rather than suppressed like with most chemical solutions.

  • Remote monitoring

    Supervisory control, real-time system diagnostics, and alarm notification.

Copper silver ionization is the safest and most environmentally friendly solution to your water safety needs.

This method is non-corrosive yet effectively cuts through the biofilm without damaging the distribution system. The efficacy of copper silver ionization is not dependent on water temperature, therefore making it effective throughout an entire water system. Copper silver ionization does not involve any disinfection byproducts and has a longer lasting local affectivity than most other disinfectants because it remains in the water for a long period of time. Copper silver ionization does not require consumables that are unsafe for handling. The ions introduced into the water supply are safe for human consumption and will not cause damage to the plumbing environment.
Be proactive about prevention by letting the innovative copper silver ionization method help you create safe, secure, and clean environments that accommodate to your unique needs.
