In hard water areas, laundry equipment quickly becomes encrusted with limescale, resulting in early renewal and frequent downtime for descaling. Scalewatcher North America, manufacturers of the original, patented and award-winning computerized electronic water-conditioner, Scalewatcher®, now has a wide range of Scalewatcher commercial systems to suit both large and small laundries.
Scalewatcher works by producing a varying electronically applied force field, induced by a coil wrapped around the outside of the pipework, which keeps the minerals in suspension and thus prevents limescale forming. Pipes are kept virtually scale-free and as existing scale is dissolved, boilers and hot water systems become more efficient thereby saving energy.
After Scalewatcher is installed in laundries, water-softening equipment may no longer be needed for addressing hard water problems. Performance remains at the same high level, but without the use of sodium and chemicals. As acidic fluid is no longer present to cause corrosion, pipes and capital equipment have a longer lifespan providing additional savings in maintenance and downtime.
A Scalewatcher commercial system was installed on a two-inch incoming waterline as a replacement for a water softener in a laundry in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The laundry had found that the conventional water softener was bulky, the salt expensive and deliveries unreliable, resulting in the softener being rendered ineffective. This resulted in limescale build up in the hot water heaters, laundry equipment and water-fed appliances and led to complaints from customers. Following the installation of the Scalewatcher system in 2000, all equipment has remained scale free.
Scalewatcher is the simplest and most economic way of preventing limescale. The innovative, technological and environmentally friendly system quickly and effectively dissolves existing limescale and prevents it recurring, returning water systems and appliances to their former efficiency.
Scalewatcher systems are based on continuous research and over 20 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with over 250,000 units sold worldwide. The system has a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty and comes with a full year performance guarantee. Costs include free shipping within the USA
