To understand how our technology works let’s first remember some basic facts about water. Water is sometimes referred to as the “universal solvent”. This term is used as water has unique characteristics that allow it to break the bonds of larger more complex compounds. For example, place a small teaspoon of sugar or salt in a glass of water, stir vigorously and it will dissolve easily.
Although the water in your industries & homes is clear, it is not pure. Being a wonderful solvent, water is very receptive and dissolves small amounts of the soluble minerals it comes into contact with in nature. Water contains elements essential for healthy living, including calcium and magnesium.
HARDNESS IN WATER
Hardness in water is caused by Calcium and Magnesium. Conventional water softeners remove the essential Calcium and Magnesium macro minerals from the water supply, by replacing them with Sodium. One of the benefits of the solutions provided by our equipment Nano Catalytic Instant Water Converter (NCIWC) is that they do not remove these essential macro minerals.
While contributing to water hardness, Magnesium does not deposit as scale.
As we all know H2O can exist in various forms; Ice, Water and Steam. Just as water can exist in various forms so can Calcium Carbonate. The three forms of Calcium Carbonate are:
Under certain circumstances (temperature rise or an increase in pH levels), water is forced to discharge Calcium Carbonate. The Calcium Carbonate discharged in this way is Calcite, a hard scale. The discharge will accumulate on the nearest receptive surface, typically metallic.
Aragonite is a form of Calcium Carbonate crystal that, unlike Calcite, prefers to stick to itself and grow attracting more Calcium. It remains suspended in water rather than depositing on metal surfaces.
Vat rite is not found in natural water.
