Notes on Test Results and Scientific Study of
Magnetite Ormus Effect Water (MEOW)
last revision date: 11/03/2019
Results of Some Laboratory Tests
I have performed some laboratory assays of the water treated by the basic MEOW device (after 3 days treatment) and also by the SM-1 device (10 hour treatment) and SM-2 device (10 hour treatment), compared with samples of untreated water employed as a control; all water used was unfiltered and untreated mountain well water with a starting TDS of about 35 ppm. The tests have included the following assays of both control (i.e., untreated) and experimental (treated) samples:
UV-VIS-NIR Spectrophotometric Absorbance Spectra Study
The screen shots shown below for UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometric absorbance were taken on March 22, 2007 and the study compared the absorbance spectra of MEOW treated water (treated for 3 days in a traditional MEOW device, using cardboard construction and containing 10.5 lbs magnetite black sand) versus untreated water. Both the control and experimental sample bottles had been filled at the same time from the same batch of unfiltered mountain well water with a TDS of about 32 ppm, and both were tested after 3 days. The changes in MEOW treated water were significant when compared with the control sample and also differed significantly from absorbance spectra normally seen with water treated only via magnetic means. For the purposes of display on this website, we shall concentrate on the absorbance spectra exhibited by the treated MEOW water in the UV-violet-blue-green range, seen near the left side of the chart. There were a few other changes as well in both absorbance and transmission spectra the VIS and NIR range, but they were of lesser significance and need to be explored further prior to publication.
The screen shots below show first the flatline absorbance spectra for the control sample, followed by the screen shot for the MEOW treated sample. Testing was performed on 3/22/2007; tests were performed twice each time on each of three sets of samples, each drawn from separate control bottles and separate MEOW treated bottles; the results shown below were typical of all runs. For both samples, ignore the sharp vertical peaks at 192 nm and at 647 nm; they are artifacts due to the light source employed. In the screen shot of the absorbance spectra for the MEOW treated water sample, please note the gentle and very significant rise in absorbance from 215 nm to about 520 nm, with a peak at about 300 nm. and a continuation of the curve via a gentle "tail" which continues beyond 380 nm to 550 nm, resulting in a very gentle drop in the slope between about 380 nm and 520 nm.
Screen shots are reproduced below:
The screen shot above from the UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometer operating system shows the absorbance spectra for the control sample, that is, the sample of untreated water drawn from the same batch at the same time as the water to be treated, and stored for three days in a PET water bottle until time of testing. Ignore the sharp vertical peaks at 192 nm and at 647 nm; they are artifacts due to the light source employed. Please note the relatively flat-line spectra at or near an intensity of zero,from 200 nm to 800 nm and beyond.
Interpretation of Absorbance Spectra Exhibited by Sample
The marked change in absorbance spectra for the MEOW treated sample compared to control sample indicates that the water, post-treatment, absorbs more light in the UV, near-UV, violet, blue and green regions of the spectrum than does untreated water. Further testing showed that the exact height and shape of the curve depended to some extent upon the type of source water employed, its TDS, and the spectrum of minerals and trace elements present in the source water, but the curve shown above is quite typical for many spring/well water samples with TDS between 30 and 400 ppm. While absolute and definitive interpretation is totally impossible based upon testing results derived only from such spectrophotometric absorbance tests, these absorbance spectra results, along with results of other tests of material properties (including pH, electrical conductivity, surface tension, capacitance and viscosity) suggest that the water exhibits changes not normally seen with conventional magnetic treatment of water (i.e., the position and shape of the absorbance curve for the MEOW treated sample was different from that typically seen with magnetic treatment), and suggests that the changes may be due to changes in the hydrogen bonding angle of the water molecule and/or in the ionic properties of ionic minerals and trace elements dissolved in the water.
Additional Test Results and Interpretations
In addition to the effects of MEOW water which I sense via intuition and that I observe after having drunk the water for several months, I continue to perform in-house tests on MEOW water compared to untreated water using conventional Western scientific testing and measurement equipment, and, as my budget allows, I will be sending samples of treated and untreated water to independent outside testing labs which are able to run specialized tests for me. I will share results, findings and my interpretations as and when possible here on this webpage.
