Questions about heat plate/stirrer and IONIC silver
« on: March 26, 2020, 10:45:59 AM »

I want to try to make my first colloidal silver batch of 20ppm. I read 1-4 articles however I still have some questions, if you would be able to answer them it would be great!

FROM ARTICLE 2: If using a 1 ounce bullion coin, it should be no more than 15 mA.  These currents can be increased if you have a sufficiently strong stirrer.  The distance between electrodes should be about 1.5 inches (37mm).

1. When using 1OZ silver bar as anode at 15ma or less is it necessary to use heat plate and/or stirrer?
2. When you make colloidal silver the first step is to make ionic silver. At this step do I need to make it in complete dark room?

Thanks in advance!

Stirring is ALWAYS beneficial.
If you don't have a stirrer, judge your current by observing the anode.  If you see 'smoke' falling off the anode, you current is too high.  If the bottom of your flask becomes silvered, your current is too high.

There is an Article which explains what light does to ionic silver.
Avoid direct sunlight and fluorescent lights.
