Legionella & Pathogen Control Copper-Silver Ionization (CSI) Systems

Copper-silver ionization systems are engineered and designed to protect clients and patients in healthcare facilitiesnursing homeshotels, large buildings and schools from Legionella and other bacteria growth in potable and utility water distribution systems. Legionella is the bacteria responsible for Legionnaires’ disease, a severe and deadly form of preventable pneumonia.

How Do You Size a Copper-Silver Ionization System?

CSI systems are sized based on water consumption, temperature, age, chemistry and plumbing design among other factors. You will begin with an engineering site visit and complete a CSI data sheet which identifies the specifics of your facility water system. Our engineers use this information to design the specific system components required to meet the water demands of your facility.

How Do Copper-Silver Ionization Systems Work?

Copper silver ionization is a non-chemical water treatment technology regarded as one of the most clinically effective prevention and remediation solution for Legionella and other bacteria. Positively charged silver and copper ions are systematically introduced into the water using a byproduct-free method to rid plumbing infrastructure of Legionella bacteria and other negatively charged bacteria. Copper ions weaken the bacteria cell walls while silver causes lysis (death). CSI introduces disinfectant ions at doses of approximately 0.1 – 0.8 ppm of copper (Cu2+) and 30 – 80 ppb silver (Ag+) to travel throughout the plumbing infrastructure and attack Legionella in various parts of the plumbing distribution system. Both these ranges are well below EPA maximum allowable levels of 1.3 ppm and 100 ppb respectively.
