Water ionizers filter water and then ionize it using a process called Two-Chamber Membrane Electrodialysis. LIFE Ionizers begins this process by filtering out harmful components from your water with our built-in dual filter system, which removes chlorine, trihalomethanes, phenols, sediment, odor, taste, and organic waste.
Then the filtered water passes into the electrodialysis chamber which is equipped with platinum-coated titanium plates and ion-permeable membranes. Here, an electrical charge is introduced into the water. This is where the ionization takes place. The water is separated into two streams (acid and alkaline) of ionized water. Alkaline water is created at the negative electrode. Positively charged ions gather at the negative electrode and create alkaline water, which consists of alkaline minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium from the source water, and hydroxyl ions, which give alkaline water it’s antioxidant potential. Negatively charged ions gather at the positive electrode and make acid or oxidized water, which consists mostly of a dilute solution of carbonic acid. The acid water’s high oxidation potential makes it a good sterilizing agent, ideal for washing your hands, cleaning food or kitchen utensils, and treating minor wounds and eczema.
