Platinzed Mesh Anode 1" x 3"
The platinized Titanium mesh anodes comes with a stem are suspended in plating baths with the mesh portion immersed in the electroplating solution. The electroplating process consists of the immersion of an object to be coated in a bath containing an anode. The object itself functions as the cathode
Tiaano manufacturing and supplying different sizes and different shapes with various substrate material (titanium, niobium) of platinised anode for water ionizers. Most good ionizers on the market use electrodes made of platinum plated titanium. The ionizer uses grade 1 titanium (as per ASTM Standard) electrodes to be plated with a good electrical conductor. Titanium will not dissolve in your ionized water as the cheaper metals like stainless steel does. Stainless steel was used for Water Ionizer electrodes in the late 1980's and was found not be a suitable material because they did not last more than a few years.
How does an alkaline water ionizer work?
A water ionizer works on the simple principle of electrolysis. Any type of water ionizer has two electrodes put into a container having two chambers separated by a semi-permeable membrane. The two electrodes - positive and negative, are put into two separate chambers and the current is passed through them. Ionization process takes place on passing of the current through the electrodes. The dissolved minerals get attracted either to the positive or negative electrode, therefore one of the chambers will have acidic water while the other will have alkaline water. The alkaline water is for drinking purpose, whereas the acidic water is for disinfecting or sterilizing purposes.
Anode Side: Platinum Plated Titanium Anode
Positively charged ions gather at the negative electrode to create reduced water, which concentrates available alkaline minerals, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium from the source water. This alkaline ionized water is drawn for drinking and cooking, through the main stainless steel spout.
Cathode Side: Platinum Plated Titanium Cathode
Negatively charged ions gather at the positive electrode to make oxidized water, which concentrates acid minerals such as nitrates, sulfides, chlorides, and fluorides from the source water. This acid ionized water has a myriad of external uses. It is discharged into the sink.
