Designed for “After sales” use and provided as a “Two piece” Ring. These units are installed around the outer circumference of the chosen water pipe.
Sialex®Ring devices are provided in a range sizes suitable for use with water pipe dimension from ½” (DN15) to 28” (DN700) and meet the needs of residential properties as well as the majority of Industrial customers.
With more than 6,000 units delivered worldwide and more than seven years successful history, the Sialex®Ring is a serious option to more traditional “Anti-Scale” and “Anti-Corrosion” devices currently available.
Cost effective, Non Polluting, and easily installed, the next step in the fight against Scale and corrosion control in water.
The SialexProcess, we believe has numerous possibilities to extend beyond fighting “Scaling” and “Corrosion” associated with water.
Other fluids, apart from water, require transportation through pipes, Scaling or leeching of materials from suspension is a common occurrence and cost to many industries.
Corrosion is not limited to corrosion caused by water other fluids can also pose problems. We welcome discussing potential projects with interested parties.
Physics and Chemistry complement each other and help us understand the interaction of materials and the products / by-products produced as a result of these reactions.
Sialex® crosses the boundaries of physics and chemistry; Sialex®, devices employ physics based techniques both in their production as well as the “effects” achieved when employing such devices, to create what can be described as a “chemical” adjustment to materials present in fluids and exposed to the effects of these devices.
The Sialex®, products introduce additional “effects” on the movement of ions or charged “nano-particles” (colloidal) that are present in water. This effect results in a dissociation of the counter-ion charge cloud surrounding the ions or particles. This can allow a chemical reaction to occur that would not occur without the “Ring Effect” being present. It is the benefits of chemistry, without the addition of extra chemicals, which is of interest to Sialex®Ring customers.
The Sialex®Ring, installed around the exterior of the selected water bearing pipe, produces an increase in suspended “nano-particles” or “nucleation seeds” with a higher percentage of aragonite within the water exposed to the device.
Aragonite crystals form “soft” scale deposits that can be easily removed. The affect of the Sialex®Ring increases the number of nucleation seeds generated which in turn will cause more precipitation to take place in water than would otherwise occur. This results in more material moving through the water system than adhering to the sides of the water bearing pipes. These “seed” particles flocculate inside the water systems and form a fine “sludge” which can be easily flushed away as opposed to the more common “hard” scale deposits (calcite) which stick to inner pipe walls, is difficult to remove, and ultimately causes problems.
Another benefit of this technique, noted in residential properties, is less dissolved calcium bicarbonate in hot water circuits. This has the effect of improving lathering and providing other benefits of partially softened water… Easier to clean surfaces, less detergent, “softer” feeling water.
Application of Sialex devices to an older installation assists in the removal of already existing “Old” scale. Water, exposed to the Sialex Ring seeks to re-dissolve any calcium carbonate in contact with it. Over a relatively short period of time, “old” scale will break free from inner surfaces of affected water pipes where it has previously attached, and break down in the plumbing system as smaller particles and sometimes into fine sand-like (aragonite) particles.
There are many suggested scientific explanations proposed to help explain these real world results. Further work is ongoing which will continue to bring further clarity to this technique.
