Water is the Reservoir of Bacteria:Pathogens Live & Proliferate in Biofilm


What is Copper Silver Ionization?Process that introduces (+) charged copper and silver ions into a water systemIons bond with ( - ) sites on bacterial cell walls and denature proteinsLong term, ionization disperses and destroys biofilms and slimes that harbor Legionella


Benefits of Copper Silver IonizationAbility to penetrate the biofilm on pipe wallsEradicates Legionella in both hot and cold waterCopper Silver Ions have a larger residual effect than most other disinfectants Efficacy does not depend on water temperature Low consumables cost compared to other disinfection modalities Non-corrosive


Components: Flow Cell

The flow cell chamber houses the copper silver alloy electrodes which release ions into the domestic water supply7

Potable water is the most common source of healthcare-associated legionellosisit was not until a copper silver Ionization system was installed that we saw a decline in Legionella numbers-John Marx, MPH, Lead Infection Preventionist & MicrobiologistUniversity of Wisconsin8

Copper Silver Ionization: How It Works

COPPER IONSILVER IONBACTERIAThe copper and silver ions disinfect synergistically. The positively charged copper ion will bond to the negative cell wall of the waterborne bacteria. The silver ion will the deconstruct the DNA of the bacteria causing cell death.10

Target Copper Silver Levels


Components: Microprocessor Controller

The POWER SOURCE to the flow cell Controls the release of the copper and silver ions Closed Loop Proportional Control allowing the system to adjust itself based on water usage to ensure no over or under ionization


Components: Ultrasonic Flow Meter

The ultrasonic flow meter communicates the flow rate to the microprocessor controllerAllows for the system to dose copper silver ions based on water demand at any given time achieving closed loop proportional control which is unique to the LiquiTech system
