PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generators

Through the use of Microcontroller Technology, the production of colloidal silver of optimum concentration and particle size is now possible using the PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator. Tests at the University of Leeds on Aquasilver, the pure form of colloidal silver produced by the PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator has shown that particle size in the range 1-10 nm corresponds to nanometer size groups of atoms. These colloidal silver particles become suspended in distilled water to produce a colloid due to electrostatic charges produced by electrolysis, the safest method of production.

Various methods of production of colloidal silver over the years have shown that the electrical method of using silver electrodes in water produces nano size particles, which become suspended to produce a colloid. Particle size is important, for example particles in the region of one to ten nano-meters in size are active in inhibiting the HIV virus from binding to host cells. PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generators have taken this process to a new level of effectiveness by the use of Microcontroller Technology. This means that the silver electrodes are controlled by software stored in the chip (known by electronic engineers as firmware). Gone are the days of two wires, crocodile clips and rows of batteries.

The PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator technology ensures that only distilled water is used, since the device measures the conductivity of the water before starting production. Some colloidal silver generator devices on the market do not discriminate about what kind of water us used, but this feature is important in the design philosophy of the PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator. This is to ensure that the particles of silver do not combine with dissolved solids to produce silver salts (such as silver chloride). By using pure water and high purity silver electrodes, the production of pure colloidal silver is achieved (known as Aquasilver). In order to measure conductivity, the PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator electrodes are arranged as a measurement ‘cell’, as well as forming part of the electrolysis process. When a voltage is applied between the electrodes, the current flowing depends on the dimensions of the cell, and the conductivity of the liquid. The cell dimensions and the applied voltage are stored as constants in an embedded equation written in C code which forms part of the firmware design.


During the production cycle, the PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator is programmed to reverse the current flow in the silver electrodes according to an algorithm which takes into account the mobility of the silver particles. This ensures that the colloidal silver particles are deposited in sheet like formations in the liquid whose position creates an even distribution. For this reason, the PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator production process is neither constant voltage nor constant current since the time constant determined by the algorithm varies according to concentration and other factors. There are several advantages to this method, one being that stirring becomes unnecessary, and also that the reversal of current flow produces an even wear of the electrodes.

    1. Hello Emma,

      A colloid consisting of metallic particles has negative charges surrounding the particle. However, when ions are released, they are positive.

      Hope that helps,

  1. Hello Nasi,

    Thank you for your interest in the PyraMed.
    There is a patent pending for the PyraMed generator (the CS1) which is
    used in both the KT1 and the MX. The only difference is the power
    supply unit.
    There are more articles for you to read on our sister site and also please take a look at the links
    page on the main site.
    The PyraMed has been selling well for over 5 years, but it is at the
    top end of the market. It is extremely reliable, and yes, there should
    be more reviews.
    You will need to use 500ml of distilled water for each batch, and make
    sure you use steam distilled and not de-ionised water.
    If people prefer to buy inferior products, then that is their business
    – the PyraMed is manufactured to a high standard, and only the best
    components are used.

    Kind regards,

  2. Hi,

    What if I want to make colloidal silver to be used externally, without distilled water, is it possible?

    I use to buy ordinary distilled water (to be used in cars, steaming devices, ironing…), is it distilled enough to pass the test (maximum conductivity allowed)?

    I also use to heat the water before making any colloidal silver, the process gets faster, does it have any consequences over the test to check the water?

    Thank you.

    1. Hello Luis,
      The PyraMed was designed to produce a pure form of colloidal silver (Aquasilver). There are machines out there which can make colloidal silver from tap water or mineral water, but the result is inferior due to contaminants.
      It is best to use steam distilled water as specified in the Quick Start Guide. Often water is sold as ‘pure’ water, but it is not usually steam distilled. Even deionized water can contain organic debris such as bacteria.
      As for temperature, the PyraMed prefers room temp., otherwise, if the production rate is too high, then you will get agglomeration of particles, causing larger particle sizes. To get a faster production rate, use about 50-100 ml from a previous batch to ‘seed’ the water, that will significantly shorten the time.
      Hope that helps, Bob Bows

      1. Hi Bob,

        Thanks for the clarifications, I sent a message but I think it wasn’t seen.

        “The PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator technology ensures that only distilled water is used, since the device measures the conductivity of the water before starting production.”

        yet you said:

        “To get a faster production rate, use about 50-100 ml from a previous batch to ‘seed’ the water, that will significantly shorten the time.”

        So “since the device measures the conductivity of the water” it can’t identify whether is seed or other contaminants in water. Is this correct?

        I’m really interested in PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator but I can’t buy it if it can’t handle “not so distilled” water, not tap water neither best distilled water, I need it to work in between sometimes.


        1. Hi Luis,

          The device measures the conductivity of water, and that depends on the concentration of ions (or charged particle clusters) present. However, it does not discriminate between the types of ions – that would require a much more expensive machine. So you are right to say that any contaminants cannot be distinguished from colloidal silver.
          This is one reason for using pure distilled water – there are no contaminants, so it must be colloidal silver that is measured.
          Some while ago a customer wanted to use the PyraMed in Africa and to use rainwater. For this reason, there is a sub-routine in the PyraMed software that can be activated by fitting a link on the PCB (printed circuit board). The sub-routine shifts the ‘test’ concentration to 100 ppm, so that the PyraMed can start producing colloidal silver despite contaminants.

  3. Please advise if you can easily view and control the generator to produced the required ppm’s in the final solution?

    Do you have to use a separate meter to measure the ppm or is this part of the generator?
