Colloidal Silver Production / Re: Question about very low currents (from Brazil)

The electrolyte (1 molar sodium carbonate solution) does a few things.

It lowers the resistance of the water so you can get reasonable amounts of current through it.

It prevents silver from plating out on the cathode which is a big problem without it because the electrolysis cell is basically an electroplating cell so without the electrolyte, you're plating all the silver you pull into solution on the cathode and making nothing or nearly nothing other than a silver plated cathode.

It raises the PH of the water into the 8+PH range which is required for the reducing agent to work properly.  Reducing sugars only work in an alkaline environment and a lot of distilled water thats on the shelf absorbs CO2 from the air which lowers the PH (dissolved CO2 is known as carbolic acid).

So in a word, yes, with the electrolyte, things will change for the better. You will be able to get your desired constant current from the very beginning of the run.

Read the articles as has been suggested.

But will the electrolyte change this configuration of the device? or speed up the process which is very slow due to configuration?

SilverTron Notes And Support Questions / Re: I want to buy a generator.
« Last post by Ritap1 on December 20, 2020, 09:45:21 PM »
Hi All,
Is there anyone, in this forum, that could suggest where i can buy a good quality colloidal silver generator. Obviously i know the silvertron is the best but unfortunately for me Im too late to buy this as its no longer in production and i have no rlectronic knowledge to trust myself to make my own.
Thank you for your help.

That's not the problem, the problem seems to be that you aren't using an electrolyte. Study the section on Colloidal Silver production.

Colloidal Silver Production / Question about very low currents (from Brazil)
« Last post by juliano on December 20, 2020, 09:00:43 PM »
I live in Brazil(forgive my machine translator english) and bought a Colloidal Silver generator available here, but at the beginning of production it offers a current of 100-200 µA (that's right micro amp) and goes up until reaching 15 to 20 mA at the end of the process. The seller had told me about it and in practice I observed it.
My question is whether this is normal, whether it is possible to produce good ionic silver with such low starting amps?

Yes, the first sign is a greying of the white of the eyes and the "skin" under the fingernails.

IIRC, one of the first places you would notice argyria is the color of the fingernails.

With properly reduced Colloidal Silver I wouldn't worry. I drank a lot of the stuff, even some ionic silver back when I didn't know better, and never had any issues.

I would not drink it regularly over 6 months however. It's not a supplement, it's a (mild) antibiotic. Use it like one.
99
Yes, thank you so much, because I see many good effects of it.

I have been drinking Ionic Silver Oxide for many years when I first started making Colloidal Silver (not now recommended, though). I never got any symptoms of Argyria, nor do I know of anyone who has, just from drinking Ionic Silver Oxide.

I have also been drinking true Colloidal Silver (the yellow/brown version) for fifteen years, and never had any symptoms of Argyria from this, either. There are two issues with intake of silver salts; the people who get Argyria (very very rare, I only know of three cases in the last twenty-five years) have all done the following:

i) They have drunk large amounts of silver salts such as silver nitrate, silver chloride or silver citrate. They have not been using true Colloidal Silver.

ii) They have not been makers of Colloidal Silver.

iii) They have mainly been trying to make an adverse point about Colloidal Silver and trying to destroy the reputation of Colloidal Silver making and Colloidal Silver itself.

I can't say it will never happen, but I don't know of anyone who has got Argyria from drinking therapeutic quantities of true Colloidal Silver. I hope this reassures you to a large extent.
