Lime scale buildup in any business’s water pipes and equipment is never a good thing. It can lead to broken pipes, broken equipment, and an increase in operational costs. Most business owners resort to using water softener solutions that involve chemicals, which can become expensive over time, not to mention that they are not environmentally friendly. However, there are innovative options for industrial water treatment.
How Does It Work?
Studies have shown that a magnetic field applied to hard water or water high in gypsum reduces or eliminates the buildup of lime scale in pipes and on machinery. The gypsum particles formed in water that’s been treated in such a way are larger and uniform in nature, unlike those formed in untreated water.
The magnetic treatment changes the mode of the calcium carbonate precipitation so that circular particles are created, rather than branching particles. Due to scale formation involving crystallization and precipitation, these studies show that magnetic water treatment has an effect on the formation of lime scale buildup.
Why Should I Use It?
Using a magnetic field as a way to treat industrial water has many different benefits. For instance, it reduces the amount of downtime for maintenance on water pipes and equipment, and it reduces or even eliminates the amount of chemicals needed to condition the water. All of this saves a company time and money in the long run.
In addition to reducing downtime for maintenance, water treatment involving magnetic fields and oscillating processes reduces corrosion in pipes and on machinery. The oscillating process increases the pH of the recirculating water gently and naturally. This mechanism creates less corrosive water, and prevents harmful biofilm formation that actively attacks metal surfaces.
When the elements of heating and cooling equipment are free of lime scale buildup, they operate much more efficiently. This saves the company money and creates a more environmentally friendly atmosphere. Just a quarter of an inch of lime scale buildup can increase heating or cooling equipment’s energy consumption by 40%.
If there is any existing lime scale buildup in your business’s pipes or on its equipment, it will be removed within weeks using a magnetic oscillating field. The best part is that it will never come back!
Using a magnetic field to prevent lime scale buildup rather than using chemicals allows you to confidently say your company is environmentally friendly. Discharge regulations have made it more difficult to get rid of wastewater when a company uses chemicals to condition it, but with a magnetic solution, a company can confidently say it is complying with environmental regulations.
Magnetic industrial water treatment options are the future of clean, environmentally friendly industrial operations.
