ORP

Oxidation Reduction Potential – This refers to the ability of a substance to “reduce oxidation.” With regard to water, a high negative ORP indicates an increased ability to draw toxins into it for release.

Electrolysis is the use of an electrical charge to separate compounds and chemically bonded elements. Specifically related to water ionizers, electrolysis is the method by which the H2O molecule is decomposed into its separate elements.
Switched Mode Power Supply – an electronic power supply unit with a switching regulator. The switching regulator rotates power “full on” and “full off” with a variable duty cycle set for the optimal voltage output.
Switched Mode Power Supply – an electronic power supply unit with a switching regulator. The switching regulator rotates power “full on” and “full off” with a variable duty cycle set for the optimal voltage output.

Switched mode power supply is used because it is smaller, light-weight and the variable duty cycle can be set to ensure that the voltage output of the appliance is at the optimal level for the usage at any selected power level.

A form of carbon used in filtration. Activated carbon has been processed to maximize porousness for the purpose of absorption.

Ceramic is an inexpensive material used for filtration because of it’s ability to absorb particles and bacteria.
BioStone filterstypically include tourmaline mineral beads to help “pre-condition” water for ionization.

These filters will have multiple layers which may include  silver impregnated or activated carbon, granular carbon, calcium, ceramic tourmaline and fibers for removal of larger particulates.

Ceramic filtration using 3-types of ceramic:

  • K ceramic has plenty of minerals and makes water stable because this ceramic has been baked from clay fermented by EM. (effective microorganisms found/created naturally for effective cleaning/purification of bad microorganisms)
  • M ceramic keeps the balance of ions. It is anion ceramic (anion ceramic granules are commonly used in filters for air purification and other purification type filters)
  • P ceramic has plenty of inorganic minerals, gives good heat conductivity and dissolves nutrients well to convert into the ingredients for human body to react well. Thus, it improves metabolism of human body. (frequently used in heating elements in things like hair dryers)
