BUFFERING THE WATER AND BINDING ACIDS
Due to the non-separated anode and cathode space, the magnesium oxide formed at the anode combines with the hydroxide up to its low solubility limit and serves as a buffer for the pH value. Free acids can be neutralised by the excess magnesium ion preventing a corrosive low pH and increasing the naturally forming stable layers of the system metals.
System water containing dissolved metal ions as a result of corrosion can be extracted by use of the elector tank. The naturally occurring magnesium hydroxide separates the metal ions from the circulation water with the particle collecting inside the reaction chamber which can then be flushed out. This process helps to improve the overall condition of the circulation water.
In water where dissolved lime is present, the lime can be separated as calcium carbonate by the alkaline environment on the cathode surfaces, whereby a reduction in the overall hardness and an accumulation of lime residues in the elector reaction tank can be observed.
THE CHEMICAL-FREE PROTECTION
By using an elector reaction tank (anti-corrosion device), non-corrosive system water can be achieved strictly without the use of chemical additives. When used in conjunction with demineralised water or water naturally low in mineral & salt content, the circulation water will reach a non corrosive state protecting assets and keeping efficiency high.
No pH stabilisers & No corrosion inhibitors are required, the use of the elector tank makes it possible to constantly improve water quality by removal of dissolved oxygen & increasing pH value to the required limits, passivation of the metals is achieved thanks to naturally occurring oxide layers of the system metals.
