Q. How do you store Colloidal Silver?

A. Colloidal Silver should be stored in tinted glass bottles in a cool dark cupboard, away from electrical cables. Do not refrigerate.

Q. What water should I use to make Colloidal Silver?

A. To make high grade Colloidal Silver without any other by-products use the highest grade distilled water that you can obtain.
The MProCSG requires High Grade Distilled Water with less that 1ppm of impurities (total dissolved solids) and will not work with any other grades of water. This ensures that the quality of Colloidal Silver that the MProCSG produces is the best. Rowater in South Australia supply high grade distilled water. See other sources of high grade distilled water here.

Q. Can I use salt to speed up the process of making CS?

A. No - Do not use salt.  We want pure Colloidal Silver, salt will only cause the production of unwanted, and possibly dangerous by-products. If you want to speed up the process of Colloidal Silver generation, a small amount of a previous batch of Colloidal Silver can be added to the distilled water as a "starter".Go To Top

Q. Why do deposits form and fall from the electrodes?

A. This is normal and part of the generation process. These deposits (silver oxide) should be regularly cleaned from the electrodes and should be filtered from the Colloidal Silver as it is poured from the beaker into the storage bottle.

Q. How long does it take to make Colloidal Silver?

A. This will vary with the temperature and the concentration required. Some sites on the internet say "One minute to make one part per million". If this were the case it would only take 5 minutes to make 5ppm Colloidal Silver. In practice the actual time would be between about 2 and 5 hours, depending on the water temperature and the water volume, to produce 5-10ppm concentration (500mL). This has been proved by laboratory tests performed on samples of Colloidal Silver made with the MProCSG. The Three Nines Plus CSG machine makes a small glass of Colloidal Silver in about half an hour.

Q. What temperature is the best? Can I heat the water?

A. Through experimentation it has been found that the best temperature range is from 15C to 25C (59F to 77F). The ideal temperature is 20C(68F). If the water temperature is very low it could be heated (in a glass container) to a temperature at the centre of  the above range. When using the MProCSG, if the temperature of the water is very high, the conductivity of the water will increase and the resultant Colloidal Silver concentration will be slightly lower than the optimum. If the temperature is extremely low, the time required to produce the Colloidal Silver will be very long and the concentration will be slightly higher than the optimum.

Q. Should Colloidal Silver be clear or cloudy?

A. Colloidal Silver should never be cloudy. This cloudiness indicates that the "Colloidal Silver" contains bi-products other than silver. This is usually because the water used to produce the Colloidal Silver is not of a high quality. Many generators will accept any water and will therefore produce an unknown (often cloudy and sometimes muddy) quality of Colloidal Silver. The MProCSG will only accept High Grade Distilled Water. If the water is of low quality the unit will immediately indicate that the process is finished and switch itself off.

Q. How should I clean the electrodes and beaker?

A. Some sources suggest to use plastic scouring pads for cleaning the electrodes. This is really too rough and will wear the electrodes excessively- silver is very soft. It has been found that a facial tissue is actually rough enough to clean the silver electrodes. Simply pull each electrode, several times, though a tissue held tightly around the electrode. The cleaning should be performed regularly through the process of generation to keep the electrodes clean and efficient. The MProCSG can be set to beep as it progresses throughout the process of generation. These intervals are ideal times to clean the electrodes.
The beaker which is made from Pyrex can be cleaned using tissues and a plastic scourer if necessary. This should be rinsed using distilled water.

Q. How did the MProCSG come about?

A. The MProCSG was designed, programmed and constructed by Eric Rodda of Kestar Enterprises in Adelaide, South Australia. The units are individually made by hand in his workshop, each one taking hours to produce from loading components onto high class circuit boards to drilling holes in the boxes, programming the microprocessors, printing the handbooks and assembling the other sections of the units.
This all came about after looking into other types for Colloidal Silver generators that were available on the market.

Q. Can I use a stirrer with my MProCSG?

A. Yes, you can. A stirring unit may help the process by reducing the deposits forming on the electrodes. But, Stirring units usually use magnetic stirring devices and it is recommended not to have magnetic objects in the vicinity of Colloidal Silver.

Q. Is your MProCSG unit "Constant Current"?

A. No, the MProCSG does not use a "Constant Current" process. It is current sensing/display and control.
Please read the page on this site about Constant CurrentGo To Top

The Three Nines Plus CSG generator is of the constant current type. Please read the above link referring to constant current.

Q. Why is the Three Nines Plus CSG generator called
         "Three Nines Plus"?

A. Firstly, this generator runs on three 9 Volt batteries and secondly the silver electrodes that are used are .9999+ quality fine silver. So in one case we have three nines and in the other we have four nines, hence Three Nines Plus. The CSG stands for Colloidal Silver Generator.

Q. What makes the Three Nines Plus CSG generator any different
         to any other "3 batteries in a box" generator?

A. The Three Nines Plus CSG incorporates a current limiting/constant current integrated circuit to control the maximum current fed to the electrodes. Other simple "three batteries in a box" unit sometimes have a series LED or "grain of wheat" globe to limit the current. The latter method does not limit the current enough and the resultant colloidal silver is usually of an unknown strength (often too high) and also the particle size is large so that it will not enter the body through the mucus membranes as it should.
Physically the Three Nines Plus CSG generator is built to last. The batteries are held in sturdy metal clips which are mounted on a high quality printed circuit board(PCB) and the battery connections are shrouded to prevent short circuits. The integrated circuit current control is also situated on this PCB. The PCB is then mounted into a strong ABS plastic box. Other units do not tell you what is inside the box.
The Three Nines Plus CSG also incorporates a unique current comparison feature using a switch and an LED together with a reference current circuit, which no other battery operated colloidal silver generator has. Other units may have a light to show that something is happening!
The Three Nines Plus CSG unit is short circuit protected. This means that no damage can occur to any part of the unit if the output connections are shorted together. Other units have warning signs about not shorting the output terminals.
The Three Nines Plus CSG has standard 4mm output sockets so that the silver electrodes can be changed easily or removed for cleaning if required. Other units have complex and easily damaged methods of holding the electrodes. I have tried to repair some of these units for customers.

Q. How long have you been using Colloidal Silver?

A. Since 1998.

Q. Where can I purchase spare silver electrodes?

A. Kestar Enterprises can supply the 10 gauge, 99.99+% quality silver electrodes. The current batch are 99.997% as per the certificate. These can be supplied in standard or custom sizes. ...more

Q. Can I make my own colloidal silver generator?

A. Yes, you can now make your own colloidal silver generator. Kestar Enterprises have just released the circuit (schematic) diagram
for the Three Nines Plus CSG. You can also purchase the MProCSG or the Three Nines Plus CSG and then make the Colloidal Silver yourself.
