The Use of Far-Infrared Ceramics for Water Purification

Many homeowners use a variety of ways to purify their water. We all know that even in first world countries, our water contains a lot of elements that we don’t necessarily want to put in our bodies. Unfortunately, unless you purify your own water (which is easy to do), you will be absorbing those unwanted elements into your body. If you’re trying to purify your water, it only makes sense to use a purification system that is as natural as possible, and that’s where the use of far infrared ceramics can be your best bet to drinking pure, clean water.

Infrared rays cannot be detected by the naked human eye, and they are divided into 3 individual groups; near, medium and far. When water is treated by far infrared rays, it is more easily absorbed by the skin, meaning that your skin stays moisturized for longer periods of time than with untreated water. This treated water also hydrates the body more efficiently when consumed. Even plants benefit much more from far infrared treated water than otherwise, as they more easily absorb nutrients using less water to gain even better growth.

Water, by its very nature, absorbs within it some of the every elements it comes into contact with. The water and solids contain charged ions that are like magnets to each other, allowing the impurities to become trapped inside the water molecules and creating clusters. In order to purify the water, the clusters need to be broken apart so that the impurities might be removed.

When people think of ceramics they probably think about plates and other dishes that we frequently use in our day to day lives. You may even have a set of them in your cupboard or use vases made of ceramic. In order to give ceramic it’s hard, durable surface, the product must be heated to a very high temperature, which also gives ceramic its anti-corrosive properties. What you may not have been aware of is that ceramic generates far infrared rays (also known as FIR). Most substances on Earth actually emit their own far infrared rays, however it’s only few materials such as ceramic that emits them in a stable and more predictable manner. There are several different types of ceramics; each generates a different frequency of far infrared ray, and each one removes different types of contaminants from water. Most homeowners will acquire a number of different ceramics and use them in combination to eliminate as many different types of contaminants as possible.

Types of ceramics for water purification (They can all be recharged by soaking the ceramic in EM•1® for 24 hours.):

K-type ceramics emit far infrared rays and enjoy a long life. K-Type Ceramics, 1 pouch
Far Infrared ceramics are generally used in both cooking and bathing, and transfer heat via far infrared radiation.

Kangen ceramics are the ones that you would use for at-home water conditioning.
N type ceramics will go to work removing Nitrogen in the water and are wonderful in aquarium applications.

Our EM•X® Gold Ceramics are fired at an extremely high temperature and include high quality clay from Japan and EM® and EM•X® Gold.

We also offer the option of our 35mm pipes. These emit far infrared rays just as efficiently as the other ceramics over a larger surface areaHomemade ceramic water treatment unit. The pipes help to cluster water molecules and control negative odors. Use these pipes to clean your drinking water, bath water, or for water used around the house in other applications.

Our ceramics emit a high enough frequency (around 30 kilohertz) to remove impurities from the water by cleaving the water molecule cluster. The impurity sticks to the ceramic, not allowing it to leach back into the water before it’s used. Ceramics don’t last forever, although depending on what type you use, some will need to be replaced while others can be recharged and used time and time again. Pores in ceramics get plugged or clogged; the high temperature ones can be cleaned (recharged) by being soaked in the EM•1® for about 24 hours before being put back into use. K type, Kangen, Far Infrared and our 35 mm pipes can all be recharged. Softer or lower temperature ceramics are, unfortunately, not easily N-Type Ceramics, 1 pouchcleaned or recharged, but tend to break and can easily be disposed of in soil. The low temperature ceramics include N and S types.

Use a variety of our ceramics to maintain the health of your family in a variety of applications all over your home.
