  • 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 ...


  • Preventing Scaling Caused by Hard Water Improves Productivity

    Water cooled spot welders need very efficient cooling systems to ensure that they operate effectively.  The problem is that very often the water cooling of the welding tips is performed by hard water containing  calcium carbonate   ( limescale)   which can form a scale and that scale in turn acts as an insulator causing inefficient cooling of the tips. A major ...

  • Preventing Scaling Caused by Hard Water on Ships

    UK Based Fluid Dynamics has won a contract to supply three of its Scaletron non chemical scale prevention devices  to the Dogger sea fishery trawler fleet.   Sticking valves caused by calcium carbonate build up can be a major problem .. that is why increasingly engineers who have experienced the benefit of installing a Scaletron on a Marine application are contacting ...

  • 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 ...

  • Acid cleaning of scale caused by hard water eliminated in Peru

    Rico Pollo is a large chicken processing factory in Peru, South America. Feed water for the processing plant has a hardness level of 280 mg/l (ppm). The plant already had a York Ammonia condenser for the refrigeration facility but was continuously having to acid clean the condenser tubes to remove scaling caused by calcium in the water this had damaged them so much it made the condenser ...

  • Air pollution slows growth of coral reefs in the Caribbean

    Periods of slow growth observed in coral reefs in the Caribbean are caused by aerosols in the air from pollution and volcanic activity, recent research suggests. Aerosols cause cooler sea surface temperatures and reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the coral, both of which slow coral growth. Coral reefs are among the world’s most important ecosystems, providing habitats for many marine ...
