Product Comparison

Comparison of Vulcan and Water Softeners
Vulcan is an electronic (capacitive) impulse/pulse based, environmentally friendly water purification system that solves your lime and rust problems. However, there are other units available based on other principles.

Salt-based water softeners (called ion-exchangers) use salt and chemicals to purify water. Their installation is done into the piping system, which should only be done by a professional plumber. They replace minerals (calcium and magnesium ions) with twice as many sodium (salt) ions. Since the calcium and magnesium are removed, the water is softer afterwards. In this way, water softeners significantly increase the sodium content of the water. This, in turn, poses a serious health threat and certainly a threat to the environment.

A waste of money:Regular water softeners are not only expensive to buy, but you will need an expert to install them. After it is put in place, it must be constantly replenished with salt. Never-ending maintenance: The maintenance includes continuous filling with salt, granule washing and inspection of the valves and metering station.

Environmental Legislation

Environment
Water resources are a valuable substance. We need a large amount of freshwater, but only 2.5% of the world’s water is freshwater, and two-thirds of it is frozen in glaciers and ice caps. The use of water softeners contributes to the reduction of clean water available on our planet. Because,
It is important to use environmentally friendly technologies and not to harm the environment.

US government begins banning water softeners
For the reasons mentioned above and because of the great danger to the environment, the US government has started to ban plasticizers.

Comparison of Vulcan and Magnetic Systems

Vulcan is NOT a magnetic system

Vulcan only works with electric pulses. Energy is simply taken from a power plug. We want to stay away from devices that use magnetism to purify water.

Why should you avoid magnetism in water purification?
All magnetic-based physical water purifiers generate electrical pulses by induction. This means that magnetism, along with the water flowing through the pipe, is expected to produce complex electrical pulses, which is sometimes accomplished. However, the following problems cannot be ignored:

Problem with Magnetism: Not all pipe materials can be treated equally well
The magnet does not penetrate very well through the metal, and therefore many dispersants; They want to install their units on plastic pipes. If the installation site is a metal pipe, their advice is to cut a piece of pipe and replace it with a piece of plastic pipe.
We believe this is an unnecessary complication of working with magnetism as it limits the treatment that will only take place on plastic pipes.

The Problem with Magnetism: The magnetism itself
Magnetism is a really powerful force. It is thought to have many positive effects on organisms. However, as everyone knows, magnets attract metallic objects, no matter how small. Again, this poses a major problem when magnets are used on a piping system. This is because the area where electromagnetic cables or permanent magnets are installed is inherently magnetic. Here, all the magnetic particles in the water are firmly attached to the inside of the pipe. This occurs similarly on metal and plastic pipes. Shortly after the inside of the pipe is coated with a metal-dirt-particle-layer, it becomes the ideal breeding ground for bacteria and other undesirable substances. Most manufacturers of magnetic devices therefore recommend turning off the unit and “rapidly draining” the tubing every six months as a solution to the problem.

  • We believe that deposition of a potentially hazardous biolayer by magnetism to treat the piping system is not a smart way to solve the scale problem. At the same time, we know that the need for pipe cleaning can be avoided by flushing or brushing. The answer is to not use magnetism.

The Problem with Magnetism: Speed
The formation of a complex electric pulse field will only occur if the water in the pipe flows at just the right speed (flow rate) under the influence of the magnetic field. If the flow rate is correct then the pulse is produced. However, if the flow rate is not correct (too slow), the pulses are not produced or – worse – the pulses are produced incorrectly.

Commercial and Industrial Applications: Benefits

Facility Management
manage a building, hotel or business; requires constant monitoring of all technical equipment, sanitary stations, open areas and the like. Vulcan helps increase manageability, sustainability and profitability in many areas. Vulcan helps water-fed tools reach their maximum service life and keeps their maintenance to a minimum.

Piping System
a) Reducing limescale deposits in your piping systemVulcan eliminates the sticking power of scale particles so that scale is easily removed from your water in fine powder form.

b) New lime formation is stopped
Vulcan disintegrates already existing deposits. Vulcan carefully dissolves existing scale in the piping system. The limescale build-up process is reversed and the pipes become progressively cleaner. This removal process will not block your pipes or drain as the treated crystals are microscopic in size and are expelled from the water.

c) Corrosion protection
Metal pipes often suffer from pitting corrosion. Electric Vulcan knocks, a metal carbonate protective layer that prevents pitting corrosion
creates.

d) Increased water pressure
Vulcan sterilizes pipes from scale deposits, in which case you can restore the full diameter of a pipe. Water can flow freely again and you will regain normal water pressure.

e) Vulcan minimizes rust
In most cases, whenever you have limescale deposits, you’ll also find rust shortly thereafter. Rust often sets itself up in lime deposits. Because rust oxides are red in color, scale deposits in metal pipes also often appear red later on. When the Vulcan treatment reduces scale, it also removes rust.

f) Vulcan minimizes bacterial growth inside pipes
Thick lime deposits on their rough surfaces are the ideal breeding ground for bacteria. Once the limescale is gone, there are no longer any nesting areas where bacteria can grow.

Technical Tools

water heaters
Vulcan constantly checks for scale build-up in tankless water heaters, reducing the need for ongoing maintenance as the heat exchangers receive less deposits. Your water heater will work much more efficiently again and you will be able to extend the next service maintenance period.

Heating systems regain full performance
When the water is heated in the hot water tank, hard water; always leads to deposits on the heating elements. This layer inevitably results in a large reduction in heat transfer capacity. With Vulcan, deposits are minimized and your heating takes place again at a higher capacity. Service maintenance intervals are extended. As standard, water heating bills will also be significantly reduced.

Solar water heating
Vulcan prevents scale build-up inside the system. Keeps heat exchangers and distribution pipes clean. Also, Vulcan; reduces scale build-up in the collectors,
It protects hot water tanks and vacuum pipes and keeps the system from overheating. There is no longer any need to circulate acids.

Cooling Towers
Vulcan provides a significant reduction in limescale deposits. Flowing water is no longer toxic and bacterial contamination is minimized. With Vulcan, the cooling tower can be operated in higher cycles of lime concentration, minimizing water usage.

Monthly Savings in Large Buildings

  • Pipe and appliances stay cleaner
  • More efficient heating systems
  • Minimized cleaning costs
  • Fewer repairs of equipment
  • No longer need to buy salt for maintenance and water softeners
  • Monthly savings of up to 15-20% on your current costs

Increasing the Efficiency of the Heating System

This; Hard water always causes deposits on the heating elements when heated with a water heater or a tankless water heater. This layer inevitably results in a large reduction in heat transfer capacity. A lime deposit of only 2 mm can result in more than 15% energy loss. The increase in heating time causes a large increase in your power consumption.

Savings in Machine Operations

Operating Costs for Machines
Vulcan improves the performance and efficiency of many water powered machines. Using Vulcan saves you time and money from the day of installation.

Heating and Heat Exchangers

When water is heated, lime; It settles on the heating elements and the heat exchanger. This situation; same as oil, gas, electricity or solar energy technologies. Due to less efficient or hindered heat transfer, the energy loss is very high and the heat transfer coefficient decreases. Vulcan; helps reduce scale build-up and water tanks in the primary and secondary circuit will need less cleaning: tube bundle heat exchangers, spiral tube heat exchangers, plate heat exchangers, damaged heat boilers, etc.

Background Information on Water Heating Systems

Kettle in Private Houses and Buildings
Water temperature legislation in homes or buildings; It states that hot water pipes should not carry water hotter than 64 °C. Any temperature above this point will create the risk of serious skin burns. In addition, the water should be heated to at least 60 °C to control legionella. Therefore: the water is normally heated at 60° -64°C.

a) Standard water heaters: Electric, gas, oil (with a tank) Standard water heaters, a heating element temperature anywhere from 65°C to reach a minimum water temperature of 60°C and a maximum water temperature of 64°C they work with. This; It is heated slowly and economically in a warehouse where it is stored for use. Often, heating element peak temperatures are around 85°C.

b) Instantaneous water heaters: Electricity, gas, oil Instant water heaters do not have a tank. When hot water is requested, they quickly heat the water from cold water to hot water. Cold water needs to be heated within a few seconds as it requires higher heating element temperatures. These instant water heaters; It can operate with heating element temperatures higher than 95 °C.

c) Below 95 °C – Vulcan effect in your kettle
The general rule for water heater systems is this: If the heating element surface temperature is less than 95 °C, you will see very good results with Vulcan water treatment.

d) Above 95 °C – Vulcan effect in your kettle
If the heating element temperature is higher than 95 °C then what does success mean for Vulcan water treatment?

At home: Vulcan water purification can be used to protect a water heater with a heating element temperature above 95 °C, as Vulcan will be effective in all areas throughout your home.
It is totally recommended even when you run it.
What will you see? In a kettle you will usually find that the scale that coats the inner walls of the heater is considerably reduced. Even if some scale shows up on your walls after a few weeks, the scale can be easily wiped off. The heating element will also show less scale as Vulcan reduces this scale to a certain degree, though not as significantly as in all other areas. Water purification with Vulcan protects all areas. However, a heating element operating above 95 °C is the part that will show some calcification. In a factory setting: If you run a large-scale water heating system that needs to be cleaned frequently (eg with a large water tank) by professional services, calcification on its walls will be significantly reduced. In this way, maintenance intervals are reduced. Moreover, the small amount of thin layer deposits that may occur can also be cleaned more easily. Typical experience shows that the use of chemicals can be limited to a minimum or even discontinued. Vulcan water treatment protects all areas. The heating element will show less calcification, but not as much as in other areas. Results; Up to 95 °C is pretty good but if temperatures go above that (eg 130 °C) it will drop a bit.

Cooling Towers

Since lime does not evaporate with water, it quickly accumulates inside the towers and clogs the system. This causes faulty operation and high maintenance costs. Vulcan achieves a significant reduction in limescale deposits. Flowing water is no longer toxic and bacterial contamination is minimized. In addition, with Vulcan, the cooling tower can be operated in higher cycles of lime concentration, minimizing water usage.

Potential for Savings in Machine Operation

Vulcan improves the performance and efficiency of many water powered machines. Using Vulcan saves you time and money starting from the day of installation.

Six Typical Money-Saving Areas

  • Calcification inside the machine is minimized.
  • If additives are used, they are often more effective and last longer.
  • The machine can be run longer before it needs to be put into service again. Usually parts are easier to clean.
  • It requires fewer repairs and less need to replace individual parts.
  • Tanks that carry water or other liquids require less maintenance and cleaning. Most of the time this is much easier and faster. This reduced service time results in less production downtime.
  • Less biofilm and bacterial growth allows for a reduction in control measures and chemicals used to combat it.
