The Descal-A-Matic magnetic, non-chemical, environmentally green water treatment units prevent  and/or eliminate hard water scale & corrosion problems in water handling systems. They are applicable to once-through systems as well as to re-circulating systems, including boilers, chillers, cooling towers, fountains, water features, supply lines and more.

How does it work?

Descal-A-Matic is a unique system for treating scale and mineral deposits because the magnetic core of the unit is constructed by placing cylindrical permanent magnets with like magnetic poles forced together into copper tubes. Where the like poles of the magnets come together, magnetic fields are created. The minerals and dissolved solids (hardness) in the water are neutralized when they pass through these magnetic fields, thereby losing their innate ability to attach to heat exchange surfaces and form typical hard scale deposits. This same effect will dissolve and remove existing elements of hard water scale over time This technology, developed over 40 years ago by the Descal-A-Matic Corporation, has been proven repeatedly and is supported by a number of studies. They have been used at the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C.

What are the benefits of Descal-A-Matic?

  • • Initial cost of these units is their ONLY cost
  • • No chemicals to purchase and store
  • • Extends the equipment life of boilers, chillers and cooling towers
  • • Provides significant operating cost savings through the elimination of chemicals, reduced bleed down and wastewater treatment costs
  • • No moving parts – easy to maintain – only need to remove the unit every 12 months for inspection and cleaning
  • • The units last literally forever
  • • Often used instead of conventional salt water softeners
  • • Reduces the surface tension in the water which helps prevent algae and similar growth in water features such as fountains

Ion Generator

The Descal-A-Matic Ion Generator system electronically releases copper and silver ions into the water where they destroy bacteria, algae, legionella and other micro-organisms which are then filtered out. It is used on direct/indirect evaporative cooling equipment, cooling towers, decorative water fountains, swimming pools and spas. The Ion Generator is a proven solution for controlling algae and micro-organisms in water systems, particularly those in fountains, water features and similar settings. The units have been used by NASA for the Apollo missions.

What are the benefits of the Ion Generator?

  • • Pay for themselves by eliminating chemical sanitizers, algaecides and clarifiers etc.
  • • Inexpensive to operate – electrical consumption averages less than 25 cents per month.
  • • Easy to maintain – Periodic oxidizing and checking normal water balance are all that’s needed.

The paybacks are real in money, time savings, better health, and the pleasure of clean pure water.
