Colloidal Silver Production / Re: Capping Agent: Trying to understand the meaning
« Last post by Dean on November 12, 2017, 08:58:30 PM »
As long as you shield the silver from direct sunlight it will be ok.  You could use a brown glass bottle if you have one large enough, or paint a mason jar black so it absorbs more heat but blocks the ultraviolet.
I couldn't bear to do that! I love watching it change colour too much ! :o

Heating is not required to make 20 ppm colloidal silver.  So just use your stirrer, and put your Jr on high.
You want a vortex in the water that is at least an inch deep, preferably more.

SilverTron Notes And Support Questions / Confused about when High Setting can be used
« Last post by frosty305 on November 11, 2017, 04:55:06 PM »
This is in regards to making 20ppm colloidal silver.  The Silvertron Jr.  Manual states:
SilverTron Jr. has 2 selectable current settings. Use the High setting
if you have a stirring device to keep the solution well mixed, are
processing using a hot plate at near boiling temperature, or have a large
anode of more than a square inch of surface area, such as a bullion bar

My question is can I make the 20ppm using the high setting with only a Magnetic stirrer or do I also need a heated plate (heat source) ?

many Thanks

I actually remembered that!

I'm using a bar I had in my supply. (I connected a silver wire to it!)

The bar you shipped me is sitting as 'back-up.'

Oh!,  The lead wire should never be put in the water!

I never thought of anode depth as being a variable.

I have been using a bar ~2" long by ~1" wide. BUT 'cooking' with the last two bottles of electrolyte, the bar has been positioned just above the water level. (I noticed the wire connected to the bar was noticeably thinning.)

Previously, the bar would be positioned well below the water level.

Hmmmmm .... thanks for the feedback!

Its not real likely. 
How deep your cathode needs to be in the solution depends on the submerged size of your anode, and the distance between the anode and cathode.  So maybe your anode is not as deep, or has worn down significantly.

The last two times I have made electrolyte solution, I noticed that when the cathode is properly positioned relative to the voltage, the cathode is much deeper in the water than previous occasions. {~1 inch compared to previous ~ 1/4 inch}

I have used the same recipe: 12.4 gm washing soda with enough DW to make 100 mL.

The washing soda is in its original box wrapped in a plastic bag.

Could my problems be because the washing soda is absorbing additional water from the air?

Any ideas?

Thats good advice.  The solubility of ionic silver decreases with lowering temperatures, so ionic should be kept at room temp (20C/68F) or above.

I have found that a warm dark kitchen cupboard is ideal storage for colloidal silver or ISO. Don't put colloidal silver in the fridge or anywhere that it may freeze, such as a basement.
