What plate material do you use in the AquaCure?

This question is often asked by people who do not understand the different types of electrolyzers or the concept of ‘electro-deposition voltage’.

Electro-deposition voltage is the cell voltage limit (for any particular material) where the negative electrode (the cathode) will start to decompose and move to the positive electrode (the anode).  

If an electrolyzer is designed to keep the cell voltage UNDER (less than) the electro-deposition voltage, the electrodes will NEVER decompose.  This is why we can have a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty on the AquaCure.

As for electrolyzer design, there are several things people need to know to properly compare electrolyzer technologies.

First, the difference between ‘flow-through’ and ’tank’ electrolyzers.

Flow-through electrolyzers receive tap water input, treat the water as it ‘flows through’ the inner electrolyzer and splits the output into two streams… Low and high pH.  These electrolyzers do not use an electrolyte to lower the cell voltage so MUST use exotic electrode materials (with high electro-deposition voltages) to mitigate the electrode decomposition.  The Also, this type of electrolyzer puts ALL impurities into the output water streams…  

Further, it turns out that the high pH (alkaline) water being healthy is a myth built on 40 years of miss-understanding and propaganda.  The water WAS HEALTHIER, but not for the reason of pH.  It turns out that the reason the water was healthy was because of the added hydrogen from the cathode.

Experimenters took away the pH, (made the water neutral), but maintained the hydrogen and the health benefits were maintained.

Then they took away the hydrogen and maintained the pH and the health benefits disappeared.  Read more about that here:

Tank electrolyzers generate the hydrogen (and oxygen) with electrodes submerged in a tank of solution.  Generally there are two main types of tank electrolyzers. 

PEM/SPE electrolyzers use a ’solid’ material as the catalyst

PEM has many advantages but has two severe disadvantages.  

First, it tends to have a high cell voltage so (again) requires exotic electrode material and

Second, it cannot make electrically expanded water EXW.

Traditional tank electrolyzers (Faraday design) have a membrane that separates the hydrogen and oxygen gasses, which then exit the electrolyzer from two separate hoses.  This is similar to the PEM design and suffers the same two severe disadvantages.

Brown’s Gas (BG, HHO, HydrOxy) electrolyzers use a more modern technology that keeps the cell voltage low using a catalyst solution and NO internal membrane.  This means they can use stainless steel electrodes instead of exotic and expensive materials like titanium or platinum and the stainless steel plates will not decompose.

Further, in addition to hydrogen, Brown’s Gas electrolyzers create a ’negatively charged plasma form of water (ExW) that give the body ENERGY (bio-available electrons) it needs to HEAL itself… Making Brown’s Gas the gas of choice for therapeutic use.

Finally, BG electrolyzers do NOT allow any impurities to leave the electrolyzer, so the catalyst and anything else stays in the tank (to eventually be rinsed out) leaving only PURE gas output to be used.

After the initial solution of catalyst (usually lye mixed with water) is put into the machine, you ONLY add pure water to top it up because the catalyst stays in the machine.  ONLY the water gets ‘consumed’ by the process.
