The first technology in the Samson Multi-Purpose
Washer's 3D SOUL system is its nanosilver coating.
Even before people knew what
germs were, silver was widely known for its ability to keep water
fresh. Ancient Greeks used silver jugs for their water, and American
pioneers put silver coins in their milk and water to keep them
Germs coming in contact with
silver receive a fatal dose of positively charged ions, which
destroy cell walls and prevent cell division. This property of
silver is currently used in bandages, medical instruments, and
silver-sulfadiazine (a tropical antimicrobial cream).
Nano- is the metric prefix
meaning "one billionth," e.g., "nonometer,"
or one billionth of a meter. The clear nanosilver coating on
the Samson Multi-Purpose Washer contains 1-3 nm thin, pure silver
As water circulates in the
Samson Multi-Purpose Washer, germs removed from the surface of
the item being cleaned, or already present in the water, come
in contact with the nanosilver coating and are destroyed.
The second line of attack against germs, odors, and
contaminants in the Samson Multi-Purpose Washer's 3D SOUL
system is O3, the chemical symbol of ozone, also
know as activated oxygen.
O3 is formed naturally in the earths atmosphere
by lightning and UV rays from the sun. You have probably smelled
O3 in the form of the fresh, clean smell in the air
after a thunderstorm. The electricity or UV ray splits molecular
oxygen, O2, into two atoms of O, which attach themselves
to other O2 molecules, forming O3.
O3 is an unstable gas and decomposes to
elemental oxygen in a short amount of time after generation,
especially in water. Therfore, unlike chlorine, O3 kills germs
and nuetralizes chemicals without harmful remainders or unpleasant
odor in the water. Furthermore, O3 is conservatively estimated to be 10
times more effective than chlorine in destroying viruses and
kills microbes and neutralizes
chemical pollutants through oxidation, the chemical process of
oxygen binding to other molecules. This changes the chemical
properties of the molecule, rendering them inert. In microbes,
this results in the destruction of cell walls and disruption
of cell proliferation.
O3 is FDA-approved for use as an antimicrobial
agent for the treatment, storage, and processing of meat and
poultry. (Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health
and Human Services, 21 CFR Part 173)
On a larger scale, O3
is used at municipal facilities to disinfect and deodorize wastewater.
The Samson Multi-Purpose Washer uses a 30-second cycle for optimum
Radical Sterilization System
Samson Multi-Purpose Washer
uses an advanced Radical Sterilization System. Radical is an
element produced when O3 is resolved and has sterilization effect
strong enough to destroy protoplasm.
Merits of Radical Sterilization
1. No odor specific to O3
2. Oxidation speed is 17 times faster than O3, which causes
no harm to the human body.
3. Fast penetration into protoplasm of germs and fast sterilization.
technology in the Samson Multi-Purpose Washer's 3D SOUL
system is ultrasonic wave cavitation.
Ultrasonic cleaning has been
used commercially in industry, medicine, dentistry, science,
and the jewelry trade for decades for its effectiveness and precision.
The Samson Multi-Purpose Washer is the first product to employ
this technology specifically for homoe use.
Ultrasonic waves are sound
waves above the upper range of human hearing, approximately 20Khz.
Lower frequency ultrasonic waves have a stronger cleaning power,
whereas higher frequency ultrasonic waves clean gently and are
better at removing smaller debris. The Samson Multi-Purpose Washer
generates mid-range ultrasonic waves in the range of 30-50 Khz,
providing powerful, yet gentle, and fine cleaning.
Ultrasonic waves in liquids
cause a phenomenon known as cavitation. Cavitation is the rapid
formation and violent collaspe of micron-sized (1/1,000,000m)
bubbles in a liquid medium. These tiny implosions release tremendous
amounts of energy (temperature up to 10,000° C and up to
10,000 PSI of pressure), providing excellent cleaning power,
as well as killing germs. The microscopic scale of this phenomenon
prevents damage to the underlying material being cleaned, much
like flying sparks produces by cutting metal fail to burn the
skin. The micron scale of cavitation also allows it to clean
affectively in narrow crevices, such as the layers of leafy vegatables
or the space between a gem and its setting
The Samson Multi-Purpose Washer
features sweep frequency technology to wash items evenly regardless
of their location in the washer by varying the frequency of ultrasonic
waves. The turbo mode cycles the power of the waves generated,
alternately blasting away larger particles and delicately cleaning
The combined effects of the
three technologies in the 3D SOUL system result in a cleaning
and disinfecting solution unmatched by any appliance or chemical
