A touch of diamond…
A few micrometers thick layer of innumerable small diamond crystals cover the surface of the diamond electrodes and thus make them an outstanding material for electro-chemistry.
Diamonds have the largest known electro-chemical potential window of all electrode materials. The high current efficiency of CVD Boron Doped Diamond Electrodes allows many electro-chemical reactions to take place. Only diamond electrodes with high (almost 100%) current efficiency manage to generate OH radicals directly from water. Through this, a very effective and clean electro-chemical water treatment (disinfection or COD reduction) without the addition of chemicals is possible (Advanced Oxidation Process – AOP).
This enables Boron doped Diamond Electrodes to create OH-radicals (hydroxyl) directly in water without the addition of any chemicals. OH-radicals are the strongest oxidants and they are extremely “aggressive” – reactive to anything organic… (bacteria, virus, dirt, hydrocarbons etc.). This makes them very effective in Water Treatment.

Warm, circulating water is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria – they grow very fast. The aggressive OH-Radical attacks the cell wall of the bacteria/virus and kills it.

The destructive power of OH-radicals eliminate hydro carbon dye and reduce COD very rapidly.
