the lower the current the smaller the particle size.
If such were the case, then one would suppose that a single 9 volt battery would produce smaller particles than three 9 volt batteries and would also produce smaller particles that the home units with 27 volts and up. Just the opposite is true. One of the best ones I know about is a 48 volt unit which also produces more true colloidal content than other units. Likewise, the two commercial products which have been tested to have far and away the smallest particle sizes are produced with very, very high voltage - though they do not use basic electrolysis.
Have you tested for PPM?
I am not saying that your setup does not produce quality colloidal/ionic silver, but there are a lot of people who know electronics and make colloidal silver generators - and what you are doing goes against the grain of most of them.
if you raise the voltage then by basic physics V=IR
ohms law then i=v/r so must get huge currents flowing through the water generating large chunks of the silver hence the weird yellow and golden colors and also cause electrolysis
what these people are doing is generating high voltage and them limiting the current.they always talk about limiting the current with a resistor in series.
A FAVORITE ONE is :- 3 x 9 VOLTS = 27 VOLTS AND THEN USING A RESISTOR TO LIMIT THE CURRENT.
IT IS LIKE GIVING SOMEONE STILTS TO MAKE THEM TALLER AND THEN CUTTING THEIR LEGS OFF.
which is really, really stupid.
1000 volts divided by 100000 ohms =0.01 amps.
100 volts divided 10000 ohms = 0.01 amps.
or 10 volts divided by 1000 ohms = 0.01 amps.
same current every time.
so it is really retarded to generate a high voltage and them limit the current when you get the same current flow with a lower voltage.
coulombs law states it is CURRENT which generates the CS/electrolysis rate.
Voltage is simply the pressure to push a required a amount of current thru a resistive medium.
Look at the tap in your kitchen.what causes water tocome out? PRESSURE.
is pressure any good to you?
NO ! you use water to drinkwith,bath with,wash with....
of course you need a large voltage if have huge silver plates many square metres in size are if you are producing cs on a industrial scale and need large currents.
in this case you do need high currents and the current density would be low due to the large surface are of the many electrodes in parallel.
we are talking about domestic production of a cs generator which can be cobbled together from a garden solar light by AVERAGE JOE in 5 minutes.
AVERAGE JOE IN THE HOUSE.
It is true that as you go up to 10 PPM and beyond you can get golden colors from larger particles. However, color in and of itself is not an absolute indicator of particle size, since you can also get colors from ultra small particles. The products with the very smallest measured particles of silver are kind of amber/tea colored. The owner of one of the companies is an MIT grad who worked for NASA - literally a "rocket scientist". You would have thought that he would have figured out that a cheap, low voltage setup would have been best instead of investing over half a million dollars in designing and setting up his productions method. The owner of the second company has decades of experience working electricity, especially with high voltage generators. I have personally seen his hundreds of thousands of dollars production facility and have also seen the measured particle sizes of both products. Nothing else comes close.
well buy it from him then.
the intention was to get everyone to make their own quickly and simply and cheaply but like a bunch of jealous school yard bullies sitting on their fat asses in front of a pc WHO INSTEAD OF SAYING THANK YOU THAT IS A GREAT IDEA we should all try that all you want to do is argue with me about voltages,particle size,nasa and rocket scientists.none of you can even remember the title of the post.too much alzheimers here.
so here it is:-
YOU ARE ALL TOTALLY CORRECT AND I AM TOTALLY WRONG.
Jealous of you? Fellow, I have never even heard of you.
Not once have I said or meant to imply that your design did not produce useful silver. Actually I appreciate your taking the time to post the information on how someone can make silver solution as you do.
Offering statements and opinion counter to yours is not an attack on you, but if that gives you problems and this last immature response is an indication of what we can expect from you, then perhaps you and we are all better off if you leave.
the title of the post is?
"Very Simple and Very Cheap Colloidal Silver Maker".
yet you are people bringing in side issues about nasa,1/2 million spent,current density.rocket scientists.
do you really think your average mtv attention span mac muncher gives a hoot about these things?
average joe's eyes glaze over when you mention these things,
he is more interested in watching america next top model or about kim kardashians new boyfriend.
the point was to make this accessible to average joe at very low cost and in 5 minute and you all cloud the issue with irrelevancies.
nasa scientist spend $10 billion on colloidal silver maker.who cares? stupid nasa scientist.
he should have retired and be sipping pina coladas on the beach instead of being a grease monkey as the epa/fda and european union have/are planning to ban its sale. poof goes the investment.
so ya boo sucks to him.
he can spend $10 trillion for all i care.
you go and buy it of him then.
