Once the ScaleBuster is installed into a water system the hardness (typically, calcium and magnesium) is precipitated into suspension. These particles remain within the flow of the water. When these particles reach the hot parts of the system, the tendency to adhere to surfaces is dramatically reduced. After installation of the ScaleBuster, limestone is mainly present in the form of aragonite, which is a non-adherent crystalline structure contrary to the untreated calcite that can cause deterioration and damage in unprotected systems. It protects the equipment from potential limestone damage with a relatively fast return on investment vs. other the traditional technologies. Acting as a sacrificial anode (zinc), the ScaleBuster also adds corrosion protection.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Extends life expectancy of water systems which might be shortened by corrosion or scale otherwise.
  • Requires no energy, chemicals nor maintenance for operation
  • Allows water re-use, eliminates waste to sewage, and extends the system's lifetime.

The Financial Benefits

  • Savings of around 15% in operational costs, 15% in water
  • Savings of over 80% in chemicals and maintenance.
