Copper Silver Ionization
What is Copper Silver Ionization?
Why Copper Silver Ionization?
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.
- 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.
