  • Non-chemical solutions for hard water scale

    Fluid Dynamics International, UK, has been helping farmers to solve hard water problems. The water supply to Hunter Farms in Tennessee, USA, is very hard (480ppm), and they had serious scaling in their chicken house self-watering system and their cool cells and egg room humidifiers. The drippers that provide drinking water for the chickens needed cleaning or replacement every sixty days and, with ...

  • Small-scale solutions key to water security

    Small-scale water solutions are a key to increasing agricultural productivity in the face of climate change, says water expert David Molden. In 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a dire warning that climate change could halve crop yields in some African countries by 2020. The prediction has since become controversial, with even an ...

  • Effluent stream scaling problem solved...without chemicals

    Effluent stream scaling problem solved and dangerous acid cleaning eliminated.At a major UK facility the combined waste streams from an RO unit, a Water Softener and an Iron Filter cause major scaling problems.Although there was no heat involved because, at times, the waste water was so supersaturated by calcium carbonate “cold water” scaling took place causing transfer pumps to need acid ...

  • 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 ...

  • Reducing Mercury Impacts in Small-Scale Gold Mining

    Despite knowing full well the dangers of mercury, millions of small-scale gold miners across the globe continue to use the metal to separate gold from ore- usually because they have little other choice. The dangerously toxic mercury vapour is often inhaled by the miners and their families, since these activities are usually conducted in their homes, or by the owners of gold shops who will process ...

  • 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 ...
