The Inventor Of The SLACKSTONE II® System

Among the impressive variety of brilliant inventions Reverend Father José Ignacio Martín-Artajo Alvarez, S.J. contributed to science, the SLACKSTONE II® ampoules to prepare Dyalitic Water stand out. A devoted worker, creative by nature and especially concerned for finding solutions to the problems affecting his fellow humans' well being, this true genius, unfairly forgotten by history, excelled in a number of disciplines, especially in engineering and electronics.
 
Born in Madrid on April 13, 1904, early in his childhood he showed a noteworthy disposition for study and research: At the age of 15 he graduated from high school in the Areneros School of Madrid and at 21 earned his degree of Engineer in the I.C.A.I, ranking second in his class. That same year he joined the Company of Jesus. From 1929 to 1932 he studied Philosophy in Granada and Oña. The following years he served as a teacher in the Hogar Español de Lieja. In 1934 he earned his engineering degree in the Superior College of Electrical Engineering of Paris. From 1934 to 1938 he studied theology in Marneff and Valkenburg, where he was ordained priest on June 24 1937. From 1939 to 1971 he held tenure as Professor of Electrical Engineering in the I.C.A.I. During 1945 to 1946 he held tenure as Professor of Electrical Engineering in the Naval Weapons School of the Ministry of the Navy.
 
He lectured in Europe and America. In the United States he was appointed Fellow Member of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and created the American Hispanic Technological Fund (A.H.T.F.) in New York. He was also a Full Member of the Academy of Doctors. His mastery of French, English and German allowed him to introduce advanced techniques in Spanish engineering. He modernized the Electrical Engineering, Materials Resistance, Tool Machinery and Thermal and Hydraulic Machines laboratories, as well as designed and built a new Electrical Machines lab. He also wrote numerous articles and books.
 
His prolific mind did not cease to create new projects. He invented a great number of apparatus and motivated by the painful consequences of the pathologies involved in crystalline bodies, invented the SLACKSTONE II® para preparar Dyalitic Water.
 
This brilliant, intelligent, hard working and charming man, well versed in poetry and humanities, highly gifted in public relations, died in holiness in Alcalá de Henares (Madrid) on December 13, 1984. Everyone who was fortunate to know him acknowledges his exceptional talent.

Author's Note:
 
Until 1988, the SLACKSTONE II® ampoules were sold in boxes of one unit. Since then, they are sold in a newly designed package containing 2 ampoules, which is the reason why it is now called SLACKSTONE II®
