ScaleBuster Technology


How It Works

The operation of the patented ION ScaleBuster requires a moving stream of water to enable the hydrodynamic process to work.

  • As water flows through, cavitation within the ION ScaleBuster chamber unit produces violent pressure changes that break up bicarbonate molecules and the dielectric materials produce static effects.
  • The galvanizing action of the ION ScaleBuster causes the breakdown of calcium and magnesium bicarbonates in the solution, (hardness in the water) which precipitate less soluble carbonates.
  • As a result, the treated water becomes less saturated and is able to dissolve existing deposits over time.
  • The combination of these effects is repeated many times. Once the salts are precipitated or removed, this action improves the flow and overall efficacy and efficiency of the piping system.
