Electro Osmosis to control rising dampness

Electro Osmosis is an environmentally friendly damp course to control rising dampness.

Electro-osmotic flow was first reported in 1807 by Ferdinand Friedrich Reuss in an unpublished lecture before the Physical-Medical Society of Moscow He showed that water could flow through a plug of clay by applying an electric voltage. Also, Electro-osmosis was discovered independently in 1814 by the English chemist Robert Porrett Jr.

The Lectros rising damp control system is based on a scientific understanding of water and has been used in over 200,000* installations. they are using electro-osmosis to reverse the rising damp process using scientific knowledge. Installing a titanium cable which has platinum anodes, around the walls at an appropriate depth and centers for the thickness of the wall, and this can be done from one side up to a 1-metre-thick wall.  Link cables are fitted to bridge doors fireplaces etc. Unprotected (isolated) copper pipes must not come in contact with the cable. Please get in touch with us for an inspection.

A 6v power pack is fitted, and a copper earth rod is fitted into the ground 2 m from the installation which acts as the cathode. The power to the anodes and cathode is balanced by the power pack (which looks like a phone charger), and this uses electro-osmosis to control the rising dampness.
