An eco-friendly water treatment system that fights limestone and corrosion
AQUABION is a water treatment system that fights limestone build-up in your water pipes and appliances. It is a natural and effective solution that replaces the often unsuccessful and repeated chemical treatments which are not only expensive but harmful to the environment…
The principle behind the AQUABION technology
The AQUABION technology is based on the galvanic principle of a sacrificial zinc anode which releases zinc ions when a potential difference (0.70-1Volt) is established between the zinc anode and the AQUABION metal casing.
Depending on the properties of the water, the galvanized element generates a potential difference on the surface of the anode which causes the particles in the water to cluster around the released zinc ion (crystallization core).
As the particles responsible for water hardening agglomerate around this core, more particles are attracted thus increasing the crystallization effect.
The result is a large number of smaller particles in the water which bond to other released products.
These particles provide a larger surface for mechanical erosion of the build-up and the released particles are flushed with the flow water.
The calcite is transformed into aragonite, which significantly reduces the adhesion tendencies of the agglomerates in the pipe system.
