How Hydropath Technology Prevents Scale from Building-Up in Pipes and Equipment

The HydroFLOW device treats fluids by inducing a robust yet harmless signal of 150kHz throughout plumbing systems made of any material. These electric waves cause mineral ions to form suspended clusters that turn into stable crystals when temperature or pressure changes occur. The suspended crystals will prevent scale from building-up in pipes and on heating elements, thus increasing heat transfer efficiency, lowering maintenance costs and reducing chemical usage. Common applications include plumbing systems, heat exchangers, water heaters, wells and pumps in residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural sectors.

PREVENTION OF LIMESCALE

Without HydroFLOW

Minerals are dissolved in solution as TDS (Total Dissolved Solids).

When temperature or pressure change occurs, minerals precipitate out of solution and accumulate as hard scale in pipes, in holding tanks and on heating elements. 

 

With HydroFLOW

When the Hydropath signal is present, dissolved minerals combine together to form loosely held clusters.

When the clusters precipitate out of solution, they form stable calcite crystals that do not accumulate as hard scale.

 

DISSOLVING EXISTING LIMESCALE

When the Hydropath signal is present, dissolved minerals combine together to form loosely held clusters.

When the clusters precipitate out of solution, they form stable calcite crystals that do not accumulate as hard scale.

 

Since hard scale no longer accumulates,

liquid flowing in the pipe contributes to

the removal of existing scale deposits.

 

THE COST OF SCALE

In water heating and cooling systems, a 1/4" inch of scale results in a 38% loss of efficiency.
