Behind the Scenes – Testing the Microbubble System
Here I’m using our 10 liter test cube to demonstrate the ability of the EWS system to generate microbubbles. This is a system that I’ve been using to calculate the operating parameters of our commercial units when new feed samples are sent to us. In this case, hydrogen is being produced at the cathode through the reduction of water, and oxygen is being produced at the anode through oxidation. Because I’m also using a donating anode, magnesium hydroxide is produced as well. You can’t see the metal salts, but you can see the enormous amount of gas that is evolved electrochemically. If you have seen high pressure gas diffusion systems, you will know that the gas generation – and therefore the lifting potential – of electrochemical systems is comparatively much higher.
