The experimental results on the excitation of the phenomenon of selective drift of solvated ions under the action of an external “asymmetric” electric field on a circulating solution of calcium and magnesium chloride salts in polar liquid dielectric, i.e., in water, are presented. The objective of the experiments was the determination of the features of the effect of the field frequency and field strength amplitude on the phenomenon excitation, and the study of operating characteristics of the experimental device, i.e., the separation cell. The dependences of the efficiency of solvated cation separation on the external field frequency and the phenomenon excitation threshold in the field strength in the separation cell are determined.
