Fluid Dynamics, with their unmatched pedigree in the field of scale prevention, have been successfully preventing scale (also referred to as limescale) in water systems since 1973. Experience has shown that the Fluid Dynamics catalytic technology is the most effective non chemical scale prevention treatment available. Most recently validated in a US study carried out by Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the GSA (Government Services Administration), their trial confirmed the effectiveness of the Fluid Dynamics scale prevention technology.

With an unmatched pedigree in the field of hard water scale prevention solutions without the use of chemicals or electricity, Fluid Dynamics offers their guaranteed green technology for scale prevention. Our technology has been tested and installed by many of the worlds' leading companies and establishments ( see just a small selection of our clients above on the right ).
Scaling caused by hard water can be a major problem, however, it can be prevented without the use of chemicals or conventional water softeners that can be hazardous and detrimental to the environment.
Scaling can block nozzles and coat pipework. Deposits can also greatly impact the efficiency of boilers and heat exchangers substantially increasing energy and maintenance costs.
In an effort to prevent scale formation expensive water softening equipment or chemicals have been widely used. These methods can cause pollution and are, in many instances, only partially successful in preventing scale formation. Fluid Dynamics offers effective and proven eco-friendly water softener alternatives.
When untreated hard water is used, it soon becomes necessary to remove scale build up. One method to remove scale involves the use of hazardous and expensive acid. In some instances mechanical removal with hammers and chisels becomes necessary.
Since 1973 Fluid Dynamics has offered industrial and, more recently, residential customers totally environmentally friendly solutions that overcome scaling caused by hard water. Using no salt our products do not require maintenance, power or chemicals. The water supply is also continual as no back flushing is required. Our product can be easily fitted to new or existing systems. Following installation, in the majority of cases where prior scale deposition has occurred, the pipework and equipment will descale.
From large 18' diameter industrial cooling tower solutions down to our smallest 3/8' diameter water softener alternative Fluid Dynamics has multiple scale prevention solutions.
Results are guaranteed and we offer a satisfaction guarantee any time during the first year of operation.
The Fluid Dynamics Solution
Now that we've covered Calcium Carbonate, the two forms it can take in natural water and the events that trigger scale deposits, we are able to explain the mechanism behind our successful technology.
As water passes through our product it is subjected to a turbulent interaction with a catalytic core made of a special alloy. The dissimilar metals and the water create a battery effect generating a very small electrical current.
This electric current causes an important change to take place. A percentage of the Calcium and Carbon in the water comes out of solution and goes into suspension forming Calcium Carbonate in the aragonite state.
The microscopic aragonite crystal formations remain suspended in the water and pass harmlessly through the system. Changes in temperature or pH no longer lead to hard scale deposits as Calcium and Carbon that may have been previously deposited as Calcite has already been converted to Aragonite effectively trapping it in suspension.
As the process repeats itself, newly created Aragonite crystal formations are continually produced thus preventing scale deposits. The process also continues to gradually remove any scale that may have accumulated in the past. This is due to the water being under saturated with dissolved calcium and carbon.
