The High Cost of Corrosion & Scale Fouling

Equipment Damage, Energy Loss, & Increased Maintenance

A pipe’s enemy is Slime, Scale and Rust.  Because of this, the harmful effects such as the deterioration of water quality and production of germs, rust, scale and occurrence of leakage, are generated.  In the end, it is the main reason that ‘Healthy Water’ becomes ‘Dead Water’.

The problem is that existing methods such as chemicals, cleansing and epoxy coating are insufficient to resolve such problems.  There is no alternative except for to replace the pipes.  But it was the situation before the RustScale Ionizer was introduced.

  • Smile : It is the phenomenon which the secreted jelly-like substances with or by inorganic substances are stacking onto inner water pipes.  Multiplying germs by slime is a major reason for deterioration of water quality.
  • Scale : The main components of Scale are Calcium and Magnesium.  Calcium carbonate which is the acicular structure, forms a very rigid crystal, sticking onto Slime and Rust.  Scale prevents the flow of water and can occur in every water pipe.
  • Rust : It is the general term which is a red-coloured corrosion products forming on the surface of metals.  It is the oxidized phenomenon by which Iron ion(Fe2+) encounters water(H2O) and Oxygen(O2).  It will result in leakage due to pipe weakness and corrosion holes in the long term and shorten the lifespan of water pipes.
  • Leakage : It is the phenomenon which iron’s electron is moving fast to oxidize at the particular parts of iron by means of Rust and Scale of water pipes when the potential difference is growing.  The corrosion develops fast as soon as it is oxidized, then water leaks from water pipes.

The formation of scale and corrosion on equipment surfaces restricts water flow, clogs equipment and reduces system efficiency. The results can be costly — increased energy consumption, greater downtime, increased maintenance and reduced equipment life.

Energy Savings

Eliminating scale build up by using RustScale Ionizer, enables boilers, heaters, valves etc to operate at peak efficiency levels, requiring less energy to heat water.

Clears Existing Scale Deposits

The galvanic effect of the RustScale Ionizer provides a reducing effect on corrosion sites.  By precipitating hardness, the treated water becomes less saturated and is therefore able to dissolve old deposits over a period of time.

The time taken will depend on several factors—the thickness of scale deposits and the distance of effected area from the installed RustScale Ionizer.  The volume of water passing through RustScale Ionizer will determine the length of time taken to clean scale and corrosion deposits from the system.  However, once installed, a RustScale Ionizer unit will commence its job immediately provided that a water flow is still possible.
