  • Green technology removes scale caused by hard water

    Installation of a Fluid Dynamics Magstream in Thailand's leading Ceramic Manufacturers elminates scale build up from pipeline. Fluid Dynamics installed a Magstream scale preventer in the colloing circuit of a leading ceramic manufacturer in Thailand- Cotto Tiles. Within 6 months nearly all the hard scale that had been deposited by eeh recirculation water had been removed and energy saving and ...

  • Laboratory-scale wetlands remove toxic veterinary drugs from wastewater

    Constructed wetlands can effectively remove veterinary drugs from wastewater, preventing contamination of the environment, research suggests. A recent study has demonstrated that laboratory-scale constructed wetlands were able to remove between 94 and 98% of two commonly used antibiotics from pig farm wastewater. Veterinary drugs are used extensively in livestock rearing and are likely to ...

  • Scale prevention and removal without chemicals - let the customer tell the story!

    We often hear stories from happy customers (quite a few of them suprised at how effective our products are) but this story received last week tells of one customers experience after fitting a catalytic Housetron scale preventer to their home' I installed a Housetron unit on March 17th on my house which is an old building with copper pipes. Although we didn't have much of a hardness problem here ...

  • Scale removal from pipeline results in over 6% energy saving

    Descaling Pipeline saves over 6% in energy costs.In the nine months since Cotto Tiles installed a 6” Diameter Magstream water conditioner on their scaled up pipeline which forms part of the cooling circuit for the ceramic tile moulds,electricity usage has dropped by 6.5%.When Cotto installed a Fluid Dynamics Magstream into the pipework of its cooling circuit there was more than 10mm (1/3”) of ...

  • Small-scale desalination

    A new approach to desalination being developed by researchers at MIT and in Korea could lead to small, portable desalination units that could be powered by solar cells or batteries. As well as removing many contaminants, these units could deliver enough fresh water to supply the needs of a family or small village. The new approach, called ion concentration polarisation, is described in a paper ...


  • Green Technology Colloid-A-Tron removes and prevents existing scale from hard water where chemicals and alternative methods fail

    Fluid Dynamics has completed a 6 month successful trial of removing existing scale and preventing future scale from forming on condenser tubes. The condenser tubes which had been treated by softeners and chemicals had a build up between 2-3 mm thick of scale deposits from hard water. A 4" Colloid-A-Tron or CAT for short was installed on the inlet to one of eight evaporative condensers treating a ...

  • Yet another `Real world´ test of Sialex®Ring`s ability to remove and control `Boiler Scale´

    A particularly difficult "test" was selected. It should be said that in quite a few cases Sialex®Ring is selected when all else fails. However, by demonstrating the products abilities, more companies are exposed to the products capabilities. THe test in this case; a boiler using locally sourced , untreated water from a "hard" water area (hardness expressed as Caco3 = 1,130mg/l.) The ...

  • Hard water scale problem solved

    Fluid Dynamics International has solved a long standing a hard water problem at one of Thailand’s biggest construction industry suppliers, Cotto Tiles. Oil in the system was the cause of scale forming in mould pipes and proposed a solution combining two technologies: Magstream and Colloid-A-Tron. Their prototype MagstreamPlus uses powerful magnets that are encased in poleheads manufactured ...


  • MagCAT solves tough scale problems

    Fluid Dynamics International has launched MagCAT, which uses powerful magnets that are encased in poleheads manufactured out of the same metal that is used for the catalytic core of Fluid Dynamics' Colloid-A-Tron. The calcium carbonate particles which are formed when hard water is heated remain in suspension after this magnetic treatment instead of precipitating as scale on pipework and heat ...


  • Preparing for large-scale solar deployment

    Original story at MIT News Deploying solar power at the scale needed to alleviate climate change will pose serious challenges for today’s electric power system, finds a study performed by researchers at MIT and the Institute for Research and Technology (ITT) at Comillas University in Spain. For example, local power ...

  • Radioactive contaminants removed from water

    A combination of forest by-products and crustacean shells may be the key to removing radioactive materials from drinking water, according to researchers from North Carolina State University. Pawlak and fellow researchers found that the new material, which forms a solid foam, has applications beyond radioactive materials and can also remove salt from sea water. “As we’re ...


  • Pharmaceutical effluent to large-scale MBBR plant

    Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies will design and commission a biological waste water treatment plant to treat all effluents of an existing specialized tablets and capsules pharmaceutical manufacturing site to meet the local stringent water discharge regulation. The core treatment is an AnoxKaldnes MBBR biological treatment. The client, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies ...

  • Removing Marine and Aquatic Debris for Good

    Marine and aquatic debris is one of the most widespread solvable pollution problems, plaguing oceans, rivers and lakes around the globe. DESMI is applying its expert knowledge and lengthy track record in oil spill recovery to tackle the issue. Global-scale problems ‘Marine and aquatic debris or ...

  • US Senate approves scaled-back energy bill

    The U.S. Senate approved a landmark energy bill last Thursday that requires the first increase in vehicle fuel economy standards in more than 30 years. But the bill is far less ambitious than Democrats wanted, as they bowed to pressure from Republicans and the Bush administration and removed a $22 billion tax package that would have cut tax breaks for oil companies and boosted support for ...

  • CO2 removal cannot save the oceans

    Greenhouse-gas emissions from human activities do not only cause rapid warming of the seas, but also ocean acidification at an unprecedented rate. Artificial carbon dioxide removal (CDR) from the atmosphere has been proposed to reduce both risks to marine life. A new study based on computer calculations now shows that this strategy would not work if applied too late. CDR cannot compensate for ...

  • Managing wastewater treatment at the river-basin scale

    The EU Water Framework Directive1 requires policymakers to consider the management of water e.g. in rivers, lakes and streams, at the scale of the river basin, but can wastewater treatment systems be managed at the same scale? To help policymakers answer this question, a team of Spanish researchers have created a method for assessing the integrated operation of wastewater treatment plants in a ...

  • Green Scale Prevention Technology Scores Success at Honda

    Honda in Thailand had a significant problem with scale building up in its pipework. This scale, caused by hard water, had the effect of reducing the diameter of the pipework forcing pumps to pump harder in order to pump the required volume of water through the reduced pipe diameter. The scale acted as an insulator as well reducing the efficiency of heat exchangers in the circuit. Honda decided ...
