History and principles of Electro Osmosis.

  • The affect osmosis has on water (e.g. in living cells) was discovered in the 18th century
  • In the19th century it was discovered that water could be moved by an applied electrical field.
  •  In the 20th century the passive EO system was developed, followed by the active.
  •  Rising damp is caused by, or contributed to by, a negative charge in the wall and a positive charge in the ground.
  •  As water is attracted to the negative charge, moisture migrates into the wall from the ground.
  •  The EO system reverses the charge at the wall ground area reversing the direction of the water migration.

 Unique user and selling points of Electro Osmosis

  • Completely chemical free process.
  •  Process is reversible and can be removed from the property if deemed necessary in the building life.
  •  More economical to install on large section walls, or where drilling is hard.
  •  Quick to install with a competent installer.
  •  Low power consumption.
  •  Durable system that if left will last in excess of the 20 year warranty.
  •  Less bulk and equipment required in the van and at the stores.
  •  Works on virtually all substrates.
  •  Fast start characteristic’s speed the drying out process. 

 Requirements of the system installation

  • Requires a circuit of no less than 10 anodes.
  • The earth rod must be positioned no less that 6ft away from the nearest anode 

 Factors which are operator reliant for good operation

  •  That the anodes are spaced and position in the wall correctly
  •  That the grouting is done sufficiently to provide good electrical contact.
  •  That a good earth is made and is positioned correctly.

 Comparisons to chemical DPC’s

  • Less drilling as the anodes are spaced every 0.8 meters.
  •  Only drilling to 1/3 of the depth of the wall.
  •  No waiting for chemicals to flow and permeate into the wall.
  •  Less bulky equipment.
  •  Rapid drying and effectiveness of the DPC on powering up.
  •  Less intrusive to the building. 
  •  A reversible process so can be removed.
  •  Can be insurance backed guaranteed for 20 years. 

Who should be using Electro Osmosis?

  • Everybody!
  •  The only limitation is small runs or walls or less than 4.5 inches.

Wykamol Group manufacture and supply the Lectros Osmotic Damp Proofing System from their manuacturing facility in Lancashire to countries across the globe.

Its effect is to repel the rising moisture molecules down the walls and harmlessly back into the ground. As long as this tiny positive charge is maintained, the protected walls remain dry and totally free of damp
