Throughout the years, VKI Technologies noticed that hard water had damaged some of their coffee systems. To counter act the ill effects of scale build up, VKI developed its own water treatment solution.
This system proved so effective that VKI decided to launch the product on the market and here it is, the ScalehammerTM!
ScalehammerTM acts as an effective "lock" against the damage caused by scale in running water. Whether it is used for residential or commercial applications, the ScalehammerTM is effective up to a water hardness degree of 25 grains per gallon or 425 parts per million. It encourages enhanced performances of piping and equipment, therefore helping to increase their lifespan.
Contrary to water softeners, the ScalehammerTM does not add any chemicals or other products, does not alter the taste and retains essential minerals without generating recurring costs.
ScalehammerTM effectively treats household problems caused by hard water by helping to reduce scale deposits in cookware, bathtubs, sinks, toilets
, yellowing of clothes caused by water, consumption of soap, white residue on dishes, etc
ScalehammerTM protects commercial equipment against damages caused by scale build up. It contributes to positively impacts equipment performance, helps decrease maintenance costs, and lowers energy consumption through the reduction of scale deposits.
The unit can be installed in no time requiring neither tools nor technical skills. ScalehammerTM must be installed on the inlet pipe, before the hot water tank. There is no need to cut pipes and no additional space is required.
ScalehammerTM technology is based on magneto hydrodynamics (MHD), a science discovered in the 18th century by Faraday that has since been applied to many areas such as the nuclear and metallurgy industries. Essentially, MHD is the interaction of magnetic fields with conducting fluids.
Using the principles of this science, the ScalehammerTM reproduces magnetic field frequencies and intensities that are perfectly calibrated for dissolving scale build up on pipe walls and preventing scale formation into micro particles.
