Hydropath technology can treat water and kill bacteria and algae without the use of chemical disinfectants. It does this by using an electric charge and the phenomenon of osmosis to force water into bacteria and algae, disrupting their natural functions and bursting them. Bacteria and/or algae that passes through the water conditioner's ring of ferrites becomes charged by the Hydropath signal. This charge forms a hydration layer of pure water around the cell. Osmosis forces water into the bacteria and/or algae, creating osmotic pressure, which ruptures the cell membrane and causes the cell to die.
We may conclude that Hydroflow water disinfection system was very effective in preventing transmission of Bacterial, Parasitic and Mycotic infection in a re-circulated experimental system during 90 days of observation.
The Bernaul power station located in Russia had problems with biofouling and scale deposits forming on the internal steam condenser pipe surfaces. Two 40" HydroFlow units were installed at the input and output lines from one of the two steam condensers. Results were that after 6 months of operation the treated steam condenser was free of scale and biofouling while the untreated condenser was 100% clogged with scale and had a strong odor of organic material decomposition.
Water that is stored in high volume reserve pits that are susceptible to bacteria growth, especially sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) that are anaerobic and must be removed before use due to hydrogen sulfide byproducts that are toxic to humans and corrode steel piping and infrastructure. HydroFlow technology is used to recirculate the water in pits as an alternative to chlorine dioxide (ClO2) which causes iron to precipitate from solution and becomes a host for SRB colonies. HydroFlow provided consistent bacteria neutralization between 88%-97% through recirculation.
Honda manufacturing in Japan experienced suboptimal results from regular chemical treatments and performed a test of Hydropath technology in several areas of their facility, including heat exchangers, cooling towers and oil coolers. The results after 108 days were that scale had not formed and old scale was removed from the use of Hydropath without chemicals. Algae and Legionella pneumophila were controlled. Honda installed several Hydropath units throughout their plant with continued success.
A commercial building operator in Hawaii initiated a four month test of HydroFlow technology for the purpose of evaluating the reduction of chemical use for bacteria, scale and corrosion control in three cooling towers. HydroFlows were installed on the cooling towers after baseline analysis was performed. During the staged test, chemical additives were systematically reduced to provide comparison of operating efficiencies of the HydroFlow units. The result was a return on investment in less than four months and long term savings of more than $1 million in operating costs.
A restaurant ice machine exhibited pink algae and prior to installing a HydroFLOW S38 the right side panel of the ice machine was disinfected for comparison with the untouched left side as a control. Both sides share a common water sump. The HydroFLOW S38 was installed and photographs were taken to document the condition of the algae. After 30 days an inspection revealed that no algae or scale was visible in both the right and left panels. No scale or bacteria have appeared since installation of HydroFLOW.
