AQUA ANSTAN Electronic scale prevention units
AQUA ANSTAN electronic scale prevention units prevent scale build up and/or remove existing scale. Design life is twenty years which is being exceeded in existing applications. Easy retrofit as installation of the units is non-intrusive. No maintenance required. Can be used in any application where scale fouling occurs. A very successful product which offers a full money back guarantee.
The heart of the AQUA ANSTAN electronic scale prevention units is an alternating digital pulse constantly ranging across a 20 kHz frequency and varying in strength. Only Aqua vantage supplies the full unique system which has a capability not equaled by competitors. Besides the prevention of scale formation, existing scale is also removed. The AQUA ANSTAN Scale prevention units are effective for any form of scaling problem and have been used successfully in various applications from printing to chicken hatcheries, without affecting the minerals in the water.
How it Works
The computer controlled AQUA ANSTAN descaling unit.
Sender/Control Unit sends an electronic "message" to a double coil assembly wrapped around the exterior of the pipe to be treated. The "signal" is within a broad band of specific frequencies covering over 50kHz and powered many times a second. The signal is alternating, thus we have a controlled oscillating magnetic field. The result is Induced Transverse and Electromagnetic and Ultrasonic Frequency Fields which are constantly varying in strength, intensity, frequency and ultra-sonic power.
The Induced Transverse and Electromagnetic Multi-Frequency Field created by the AQUA ANSTAN descaling unit strips the scaling mineral ions off the water molecules, creates sites of nucleation and forces the oppositely charged ions to combine. The result is inert and non-scaling crystals of Calcium Carbonate which simply wash through to waste.
The AQUA ANSTAN descaling unit was fitted on an Anstan Technologies electrode humidifier in the Midrand area in South Africa.
The following illustrations are taken from this site.
This particular site was chosen for its harsh conditions including high demand of humidity as well as high mineral content in the water, which meant that the humidifier required servicing on a weekly basis (Cleaning of the humidifier steam generating boilers (bottles)and humidifier electrodes), the build-up of mineral fouling on the humidifier electrodes caused an increased wear on the humidifier electrodes which resulted in the humidifier electrodes having to be replaced more frequently than normal for an Anstan humidifier.
The AQUA ANSTAN descaling unit was fitted in April 2003. The following illustrations show the result over a period of 24 days.
| ||After 10 days mineral fouling is seen to be disintegrating off the humidifier electrodes exposing metal surfaces not seen before. |
| ||After 14 days mineral fouling attached to the humidifier electrodes is seen to be thinning out. |
| ||After 24 days mineral fouling on the humidifier electrodes is almost eliminated. |
As can be seen the AQUA ANSTAN descaling unit does not only eliminate the buildup of mineral fouling on the humidifier electrodes as guaranteed but also removes existing mineral fouling on the humidifier electrodes.
As a result of fitting the AQUA ANSTAN descaling unit the company has not replaced a humidifier electrode or a steam generating boiler (bottle) in the past 16 months and the humidifier electrode wear and the humidifier steam generating boiler (bottle) damage is virtually nil the estimated life of the humidifier electrode wear and the humidifier steam generating boiler (bottle would be about 4 years or more.
Servicing of the humidifier has been reduced to a simple opening and emptying of the humidifier steam generating boiler (bottle) and removing the small non-adherent flakes once every 1-2 months.
