The Natural Mineral Purification System utilizes an advanced electrolytic process which emits small amounts of Copper ions into water systems for the purpose of controlling micro-organisms and algae while avoiding the hazards of high level chemical dosing. From the backyard pool to the process cooling tower, the Natural Mineral Purification System can help save 60-90% on overall water treatment chemical expenditures. The system has a wide range of applications including food processing, marine parks, decorative fountains, cooling towers, breweries, and grey water treatment.
This method of water treatment is environmentally safe, user friendly and cost effective.
The system operates automatically in conjunction with the circulation system of a pool, spa, or cooling tower. A flow cell houses specially formulated virgin Copper alloy electrodes that deplete at
a designated rate into the water that is to be treated. A long term disinfecting residual is then maintained by the system which is not depleted by heat or sunlight. Unlike chlorine, Copper does
not degrade rapidly under those conditions. The electrode emissions created by the Natural Mineral Purification process are surface active, micro-biocidal and a potent algaecide. The disinfecting action is attributable to the positive charged Copper ions which form electrostatic bonds with negatively charged sites on the cell wall of micro organisms.
It has been field and laboratory proven that when mineral purification is used in conjunction with low levels of free chlorine, typically .2-.4 ppm (local health department regulations may vary); there is a synergistic effect (Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Dec. 1989, p. 3045-3050). The maximum synergistic effect was Copper in the presence of .3 ppm free available chlorine. At this dose, 1,000 times more bacteria were killed after 2.5 minutes in the ionized water than the water treated with chlorine alone.
