Magnetic Traps
by Barry Carter


We believe that the m-state (ORMUS) materials dissolved in water are superconductors which respond to magnetic fields. We have observed that most water, when swirled in the presence of a magnetic field can be separated into two components; a magnetically responsive component and a non-responsive component. Magnetic traps of various designs have been devised to take advantage of this property in order to concentrate a form of the ORMUS elements.

This concentrate tends to be "oilier" than ordinary water, it also tends to be lighter than ordinary water especially when it is moving in relation to magnetic fields. A more detailed look at this theory can be found in my article "Patterns of Motion"

Trap designs:

There are a number of magnetic trap designs. These designs take advantage of the magnetically induced properties of the ORMUS elements in a variety of different ways.

The Storage Trap was my first attempt at trap design. It is designed to repel the good water downward into the bottom of the trap. It is a good design and probably is capable of concentrating ORMUS more than any of the others but the down side is that it works on a batch basis. It is expensive but fairly easy to build and operate.

The Vortex Trap was my second design and it works quite well but it does not lend itself to unattended operation or indoor use. It was designed to repel the good water into the center of a vortex in horizontal operation. It is cheap and easy to build in its PVC format and quite expensive and difficult to build in its clear acrylic format.

The Static Trap was my third design and it also seems to work well (depending on how it is magnetized) but it was also a batch collector and, for me, required that I crawl under my house to collect the trap water. It was designed to repel the good water horizontally into a pressurized dead space before it runs a magnetic vortex gauntlet.  This trap is moderately difficult to build and quite difficult to install and use.

The Static Trap

The Winter Sink Trap was designed by someone else to be used inside in winter time. It was designed to repel the good water inward and upward for collection out of the center of the top. It is a true levitation trap in that one thinks of levitation as being against the pull of gravity. It also works well for its intended purpose. The Winter Sink Trap is the first multi-stage trap design in this list. The most stunning health improvements reported resulted from drinking Winter Sink Trap water. You can read about these health effects in the Trap Water Diary on the SubtleEnergies web site. This trap is large, heavy, expensive and the most difficult trap to build. If it can be left in place it is quite easy to use.

I designed the Tiny Trap to address a variety of problems inherent in previous trap designs. I wanted a trap which was a true levitation design and which also took advantage of vortex action to move the lighter ORMUS water to the center of the trap. I wanted it to be easy to build from parts which could be purchased off the shelf. (This was a prime consideration in all of my trap designs.) I wanted a trap which had a smooth magnetic field from a single magnetic structure; more like the Storage Trap and unlike all of the other trap designs. (The original inventor of the magnetic trap concept said that the smooth magnetic field was more effective for extracting ORMUS.) I also wanted a trap which was easy to install and use even if it had to be moved after each use.

The Tiny Trap is one of the easiest to build designs but there are a few parts which require power tool modification. It was designed so that the body of the trap can be inverted to reverse the direction of vortex spin. It was also designed so that the polarity of the magnet structure could be easily reversed. This should facilitate experimentation with these two factors. The Tiny Trap can be used in multi-stage designs and my personal trap uses a three stage design (though I am not sure that there is much benefit in using it multi-stage).

The Tiny Trap produces water which is at least as good as the other trap designs. The downside of the Tiny Trap design is that one crucial part for it has become more difficult to obtain since the trap was designed.

None of these traps have had their ORMUS output measured in a scientific way so all of my assessments of relative quality of output are quite subjective.

I have been working on a more sophisticated trap design which would allow water to be trapped from all of the water use of a household without the waste inherent in these other trap designs. I call this the House Trap. This trap design is going to require some fairly sophisticated control mechanisms which are beyond my capabilities right now.

The main body of this trap, however, could easily replace the main body of the Tiny Trap and might produce a better output if a large enough magnet structure was used. This trap body does not require the use of a difficult to obtain part but it does require the use of a table saw for machining. You can see some pictures of the House Trap at:

Please note that the green color of the water was probably from contamination contributed by the pressure tank.
