Application of Industrial Water Treatment IN BOILERS

Scientists have theorized that to be effective, magnetic treatment was only practical in re- circulating systems where the water could pass through the magnetic field numerous times. This is contrary to observed practice where houses, boilers and other single pass applications have been equally as successful. The answer it appears lies in the after magnetic treatment affect on the silica particles.

In cooling towers it has been observed that treatment was equally effective by treating the inlet make up water pipe or the re circulating pipe. The Polish report provides the answer to this question by explaining that the activated silica is capable of adsorbing an abundant amount of dissolved minerals. Thus a small amount of activated silica can neutralize a large amount of calcium. Thus, the periodic introduction of additional activated silica through the make up pipe, serves to keep the mineral neutralization process working until the coagulated silica hydrosol drops out as sludge by the force of gravity. Further, activated silica, along with the improved solvency of the water, serves to pull scale off tower parts and back into the solution to also be neutralized. Thus, the effectiveness of the process, in this circumstance, does not depend on re treating the same water repeatedly through the magnetic field.

In contrast, magnetic water treatment systems houses and in boilers has the same effect but in a different way. Most applications call for two or more magnetic units installed in succession or periodically along the water pipe entering the house or boiler. Thus, technically, the water is passed through the magnetic field more than once. On the MAG-SOL 200 system, for example, the water passes through 5 separate magnetic units. The significant difference in treatment methodology, as clarified by the Polish report, centers on the length of time the water is in the system. Remember, the cooling tower water remains in the process for a considerable time allowing for flocculation and finally coagulation to occur. In a house or boiler, the water passes rather quickly through the structure and the treated water is only able to flocculate.

This is desirable since coagulation and sedimentation, unlike a cooling tower, would be difficult to manage without sediment water filtration.

Boiler Systems

All types of boilers may be equipped with a industrial magnetic water purification system for successful elimination of scale formation and corrosion, without the use of other chemicals for treatment. After magnetic treatment, boiler matter does not, when heated, produce a hard scale on the walls of the boiler or in heating pipes, but rather a loose sludge which settles to the bottom and can easily be removed, or flushed by a simple blow-down without acid treatment.

Even extremely impure grades of water can be used, as there is no tendency towards scaling after the water has passed through the magnetic field.

industrial Magnetic water treatment is already widely used in boilers for all purposes. The advantages over conventional treatment are .that no chemicals are needed and no analysis of the water is required. The labor requirement is severely reduced as compared with the constant attention required by conventional dosing and ion-exchange plants.

The cost-savings advantages of these benefits are probably obvious to anyone familiar with boiler maintenance and should not require detailed delineation here. Different types of boilers and installations will benefit in different areas and to different degrees depending upon their particular circumstances and functions.

Cooling Towers and Condensers

A cooling tower looses water through evaporation (to achieve cooling) and through drift (water droplets carried away by wind and fan). Thus water has to be added to compensate for the loss. Since all cooling water contain dissolved solids, unless previously removed, the evaporation will concentrate these dissolved solids in the cooling systems. High concentrations will result in scale formation in the heat exchanger and in the tower. Heat Exchanger

A heat exchanger is a device that transfers heat between two media, while keeping them physically separated. In a refrigeration system it removes from the compressed refrigerant gas, the heat of compression and the heat absorbed by the refrigerant in the evaporator. The refrigerant is hereby converted back into the liquid phase, so the heat exchanger is properly called a condenser.

Deposits on tubes in a condenser cause a tremendous loss of heat transfer efficiency resulting in inefficient cooling of the refrigerant which in turn causes higher compressor head pressure. Higher head pressure will create a large increase in power consumption. Effect of magclean industrial water filtration system in construction industry

In some cases, during production of cement and other construction materials, there is a deficit of fresh water. Many years' observations and practice show that application of our industrial magnetic water softener systems allows using salty and even seawater. When using magnetized seawater for cement kneading, cement strength increases by 30-40% and the economy on cement becomes 14%. However, application of seawater requires conducting certain procedures in order to eliminate incrustations in water-pipes and water-pump stations. Even though, this problem can be solved by additional installation of magnetic devices in water-supply system.

While transporting concrete mixtures on long distances, its plasticity decreases by 30-40%. This leads to concrete's inability to lay properly and increases energy expenses when electro-mechanical vibrators are used. This technology allows not only to increase concrete's plasticity but, at the same time, allows to increase its resistance to pressure by 15-25% and tensile strength by 30-40%.

Theoretical model of impact of water, treated by magnetic field, on concrete mixing

One of the basic characteristics of magnetically treated water, which has major importance in concrete making, is its pertaining to colloidal particles and solutions. Like ion solution (colloidal cement solution is made with magnetized water), colloidal cement solution will contain colloidal particles, surrounded by a thinner dense layer of water mono-molecules as the number of mono-molecules drops at some regimen of magnetic treatment. Therefore, some reduction of water share in cement mixture is possible.

At the moment of fastening, there is a thinner hydrate layer between cement particles in magnetized water than in non-magnetized. Naturally, this thin layer will quickly react with the surface layer of particles, i.e. it will fasten quicker, but when hydrate layer is depleted, water diffusion inside particles stops due to lack of free water near the surface. At fastening the water, required for further hydration, water is forced out in the sample surface and from there its transfer to particles inside the sample gets very difficult. Due to this reason, cement (made with magnetized water), hardens quicker and gets strength faster on the initial stage. But, then, the speed of its hardening drops abruptly because it becomes difficult for water to reach particles. However, due to such process, porosity of cement rock reduces significantly and the final strength of concrete for compression and tension increases. Also laying of the concrete mixture becomes easier and significantly improves.


Using magnetic water filtration in kneading of cement, results in a significant increase of rock's strength. Influence of magnetic treatment of water (used for kneading of cement), on rock's strength, while it is kept for long periods of time in normal temperature and humidity.
