Vulcan anti-scale system

The Vulcan Technology

How does electronic scale protection work?

vulcan technology

Vulcan is the eco-friendly water treatment solution – it works without the addition of salt or chemicals. Vulcan works by changing the physical characteristics of the scale crystals. This treatment removes the adhesive qualities of scale. Vulcan sits outside of the water pipes, and does not need to directly touch the water to function.

Vulcan’s computerized micro-chip controls the electronic system and generates the Vulcan-Impulse-Technology. These electronic impulses are transmitted via the two impulse bands, which are wrapped around the pipe. These two bands interact to create an electronic field which alters the liquid calcium crystals in the water.

Scale causes big problems

Scale deposits inside of pipes, on heating elements or on
expensive machinery create many problems:
  • It blocks piping systems
  • It dulls the surfaces
  • It causes mechanical malfunctions
  • It raises your heating costs
  • Scale problems require expensive cleaning
  • Rust accumulation corrodes your pipes
The longer you leave your scale problems untouched,
the more damage the scale will cause to your system.
This could lead to a replacement of the piping system and new equipment.

How can Vulcan fix these problems?

1. Vulcan prevents scale build-up in pipes and appliances

Without the Vulcan- Impulse-Technology water treatment, scale particles quickly stick together and build hard deposits in your pipes and appliances. Our patented technology alters the structure of calcium and magnesium, using the process of electrophoresis. The crystals change into a rod like structure, which makes them smooth and also removes their stickiness. Scale is then noticed as a fine powder, which is easily washed away. Vulcan also stops new deposits from forming. As more rod shaped crystals are created, the advantages of having a scale prevention system become more noticeable.

Vulcan Technology against scale
Vulcan water treatment creates mono-crystals.
When mono-crystals are created, they continue to grow and develop as long as possible in the piping system. The longer the crystal – the longer it takes for them to break apart. Mono-crystals grow fastest in warm water, and therefore last longer. This is why the Vulcan effect continues for approx. two days in cold water and up to seven days in warm water.

2. Vulcan gently sanitizes the piping system

Two processes take place at the same time when hard water isn’t treated:
a. Calcium crystals are extremely adhesive and create deposits by sticking to each other and to the piping system. These deposits product a bi-product known as Carbonic Acid(H2CO3).

b. This carbonic acid breaks down existing scale deposits – this is called the ‘’natural resolving process’’. Over time, the build up of scale occurs much faster than the ‘’natural resolving process’’, therefore, scale deposits grow larger and the diameter of the pipes decrease.

Vulcan Processes

The Vulcan water treatment reverses the speed of the ‘’natural resolving process’’ and the scaling process. The mono-crystals have lost their adhesive properties, therefore, are no longer able to form deposits and slowing down the scaling process. Now, the balance has been changed and the Carbonic Acid is removing the scale faster than it is forming. Over time, the carbonic acid will continue to dissolve the scale and the deposits will be removed from the pipe.

Vulcan Technology
Dissolved scale also reduces rust
When scale deposits form, Iron particles in the water will begin to attach to themselves to this. The scale deposits and Iron particles merge together to form hard, red deposits inside the pipes. When the Vulcan treatment removes the scale, the rust is also removed. This is a gentle process, and these deposits will dissolve slowly into the water and wash away. These are all natural minerals; therefore, the water remains safe to drink.
Vulcan against rust
Reducing scale deposits means that bacteria are reduced as well.
Bacteria breed and form around scale deposits. With the Vulcan treatment the scale deposits are removed, and therefore, so are the bacterial breeding grounds.

3. Vulcan prevents rust damage and perforation

Iron and copper oxidation occurs in all metal pipes that come into contact with hard water. After time, this oxidation can start to corrode the piping system.

Vulcan impulse technology generates an electrophoresis effect and produces a protected metal-carbonate covering on the pipe. Depending upon the pipe’s material, it can consist of copper-carbonate, iron-carbonate or zinc-carbonate which settles over all shiny metal surfaces. This layer protects your pipes from aggressive substances that can cause corrosion.
