HydroFLOW prevents scale from building up in Pipes, Cooling Towers and Water Handling Equipment
The patented HydroFLOW unit induces a sustained 150 kHz frequency into any type of pipe on which it is installed. The Hydropath signal extends in both directions throughout the water stream, using the water as a carrier, and the pulsed frequency forces mineral ions to crystallize into stable “soft scale” (aragonite) when temperature or pressure changes occur.
The suspended crystals cannot attach as lime scale on surfaces of pipes, heating elements or closed loop circulation systems. This non-chemical prevention increases heat transfer efficiency, lowering maintenance costs and reducing chemical usage. Existing scale softens over time, and erodes away leaving a clean surface that is free of scale and biofilm.
Common HydroFLOW applications include high flow water transfer pipes, heat exchangers, boilers, cooling towers, groundwater remediation systems, commercial pools, wells and pumps. Pipe sizes range from 2" to 72" Outside Diameter.
HydroFLOW removes scale and biofilm from industrial, commercial and agricultural sectors; reducing chemical costs, energy expenses and maintenance budgets.
Minerals are dissolved in solution as TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) .
When temperature or pressure change occurs, minerals precipitate out of solutions and accumulate as hard scale in pipes, holding tanks, pumps and on heating elements
Prevention of Limescale
When the Hydropath signal is present, dissolved minerals combine together to form loosely held clusters.
When the clusters precipitate out of solution, the form stable “soft scale” crystals that do not accumulate as hard scale.
When calcite crystals form, they release carbon dioxide which gradually dissolves exiting lime scale deposits.
When the Hydropath signal is present, dissolved minerals combine together to form loosely held clusters. The clusters develop into seed crystals that do not form as hard scale
When the clusters precipitate out of solution, they form stable “soft scale” crystals that do not accumulate as hard scale. Over time the hard scale is softened by the Hydropath signal which is gradually released as soft scale. No new Hard Scale is able to form
