Technical Description for Scalewatcher®

Scalewatcher® is a unique, efficient, energy-saving device designed to eliminate the problems of hard water, while retaining the natural benefits. This is achieved by changing the size of the particles of precipitated compounds, by aiding the ability of crystals to form their shape, and by altering the solubility of compounds within liquid.

Scalewatcher® takes the process of induced ionisation to its ultimate stage. The principles of Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is a science discovered in1832 by famous English physicist and chemist, Michael Faraday that has since been applied to many areas such as the nuclear and metallurgy industries. This science is applied by passing Scalewatcher®'s patented signal through a coil wrapped around the pipe to be treated. The signal consists of a frequency modulated (FM) wave form within the audio frequency (AF) bandwidth. This inaudible sonic frequency signal sets up a dynamic field around and through the coil, pipe and water, and modifies the calcium carbonate crystal nuclei.

Magnetohydrodynamics involves magnetic fields (magneto) and fluids (hydro) that conduct electricity and interact (dynamics).MHD technology is based on a fundamental law of electromagnetism: When a magnetic field and an electric current intersect in a liquid, their repulsive intersection propels the liquid in a direction perpendicular to both the field and the current.

The nuclei upon which the crystals start growing are minute in size and have charged surfaces in their natural condition within the water. When they pass through the field, these naturally charged nuclei encounter considerable forces as the field interacts with them. The field acts at the surfaces of the nuclei and modifies the nature of the electrical charges and this ionisation effect thus alters the growth rate and pattern of the crystals in general and on specific planes.

These crystals are harmless, neutral, heat resistant, and completely stable and will not attach to any surfaces like your pipes and heaters to cause lime deposits. When the crystals reach a size in the range of nano-meters (one billionth the size of a meter) they detach and are carried away by the water flow. These nano-crystals are relatively insoluble, effectively isolating hardness up to 25 grains/gal. (420 mg/L) from the water chemistry.

Scale Reduction

It is this changed size, modified charge and crystalline shape that has the first two beneficial properties for the reduction of scale.

  1. The 2-4 micron sized crystals become non-sticky and will not coagulate or precipitate and form scale in the same way as untreated calcium carbonate nuclei would. This process is so effective that the water has been found to fell and behave like chemically softened water.
  2. The presence of the large crystalline shapes disrupts the equilibrium between the fluid and any existing scale. Smaller particles in general, dissolve more easily, so the larger particles will have reduced the levels of calcite in solution. Hence, existing scale deposited by precipitation will soften and gradually be absorbed into solution and flow out of the system. In areas of still water, e.g. tanks etc., the soft scale would settle to the bottom and could then be removed simply by flushing.

It has been established that the physiochemical process already described is more efficient because the signal energy is dynamically changing. By changing the signal field at high audio frequencies, unique to Scalewatcher®, the energy imparted to the nuclei is considerably accelerated. The crystal intra molecular structure is rapidly broken down and the occurrence causes a fast dissolution of any existing scale forming molecules.

An important property of Scalewatcher® processed water is that the charged crystalline shape growth will remain in that state for up to 7 days. Thus in stored water systems the effect is much longer lasting than other ionisation methods, retarding the reversion back to the smaller nuclei structures that are readily precipitated.

Potability and Water Quality

Typical Scale Build Up

The calcium carbonate remains in the water as soft crystals, not as hard scale therefore water treated with Scalewatcher® should reduce the risk of Gallstones. Minerals which have now been taken out of solution and crystalised to a size greater than 1 micron could, if desirable, be reduced using a quality micron ceramic or stainless steel filter.

The generation of hydrogen peroxide is in minute quantities and readily converts back to water and oxygen. It is widely used as an antiseptic mouth wash, therefore presents no hazard to health. The sodium content and degree of acidity (PH) remain unchanged. The generation of carbon dioxide invigorates the water but is not enough to cause bubbles. If calcium sulphate, which causes scum as opposed to scale, is present, it will also undergo a change. This increases the effectiveness of soap/detergents.

Scalewatcher® is Unique

Stopwaterscalees a patented method of softening water without resorting to chemicals and should not be confused with other devices that have proved to be only partially effective. The fact that Scalewatcher® can be seen to actually de-scale a water system is proof of its effectiveness. The low cost investment quickly reduces energy, maintenance, and repair/replacement costs and will pay for itself many times over during its expected life-span of 20-30 years.Scalewatcher® is your best choice for lime scale removal, lime scale problems.
