How does Suprion work?

1. Earth terminal
2. Primary electrostatic band
3. Converged secondary electrostatic curtain
4. FRP pipe for generating static
5. Electrode pair
6. Case

Suprion employs a unique form of electrolytic action. In a standard electrolytic system the water passing through the device functions as the electrolyte in a voltaic cell, contacting at least two electrodes having different electrochemical potentials. Suprion is unique in that there is no contact between the water and the electrodes. An electrostatic field generated by the flow of water through the device mediates the electrolytic action. Optimum field generation is made possible by a specially formed tough, temperature resistant plastic tube through which the water flows.

Friction between the water and the inner surface of the pipe generates an electrostatic charge around the outer surface of the pipe. The Suprion electrode assembly is immersed in this field, which performs essentially the same function as the liquid electrolyte in a standard system. The positive electrode element absorbs free electrons from the field, resulting in a high concentration of protons around the field. The negative electrode element, on the other hand, releases electrons into the field. The very high potential difference between the electrodes results in a narrowly focused, high density secondary field in the form of an electrostatic curtain through which the water must pass.

In solution, calcium, magnesium and other mineral salts are partly ionized and therefore subject to influence by the electromagnetic and electrostatic energy. Suprion‘s focused secondary electrostatic field causes increased ionization of the soluble content of the water, thereby minimising precipitation and preventing scaling.
