How do you store Colloidal
A. Colloidal Silver
should be stored in tinted glass bottles in a cool dark
cupboard, away from electrical cables. Do not
What water should I use to make
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
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".
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.
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.
What temperature is the
best? Can I heat the water?
Through experimentation it has been found that the best
temperature range is from 15ºC
to 25ºC (59ºF
to 77ºF). The ideal
temperature is 20ºC(68ºF).
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.
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.
How did the MProCSG come
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
Can I use a stirrer with my
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
Is your MProCSG unit "Constant
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
The Three Nines Plus CSG generator is of the
constant current type. Please read the above link
referring to constant current.
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.
What makes the Three Nines Plus CSG
generator any different
to any other "3 batteries in a
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
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.
