Hard Water Problems ?
What is hard water ?
Hard water is basically water containing a high mineral count. Groundwater often percolates through limestone where it picks up calcium and magnesium deposits.
Drinking water can also contain trace minerals like iron, which gets picked up from the soil, lakes and rivers – even older, corroded plumbing. In some regions, hard water may also contain manganese or aluminum.
Of course, things like calcium, magnesium and iron aren’t necessarily bad for you. In fact, they’re actually beneficial nutrients. However, hard water sediments can also carry potentially harmful bacteria along with them.
Hard water causes multiple problems at home, in agriculture, in commercial and in Industrial applications. Scaling is the biggest and number one problem that hard water causes. 1. Water tastes and smells funny. 2. White stains on very much everything like the taps and toilets to the car windows and glasses. 3. Sticky Hair and a bad showering experience. 4. Skin irritation. 5. Waste of water with other expensive solutions. 6. Clogging pipeline and shower nozzles. 7. Appliances get affected if you have hard water.

Applications of ScaleBreck electronic water conditioner
Water Hardness and associated problems Water hardness is a source of many problems. One important trouble area is the way hardness minerals react with soaps and detergents. Water hardness is sometimes defined as - "the effect of certain elements which combine with soap to form an insoluble material known as curd." The list of elements that possess this property of hardness include iron, copper and manganese, all present normally in relatively small quantities. More common, of course, are calcium and magnesium, which are usually present in significant amounts. Clothes washed with ScaleBreck water are free of troublesome hard water soap curd. For the building maintenance and/or home owners water hardness makes cleaning operations more difficult. In the laundry, hard water leaves soap curd and detergent deposits on fabrics. This dulls colors and gives a grey or yellow appearance to white fabrics. Hard water soap curd also cling to fabric fibers, causing threads to become brittle and shortening the life of the material. Hard water wastes soap and synthetic detergents. Hard water leaves unsightly soap scum rings in the bathtub. Hard water spots and streaks glassware and dishes. Hard water makes bathing more difficult for skin and hair. Hard water builds up scale deposits in all water-using appliances and clogs hot water pipes. Even more important to the unit owner and to his/her entire family, hard water hampers good grooming efforts. Scale is one of the most serious problems caused by hardness mineral deposits. This particular by-product of water hardness puts many water-using appliances out of service. It clogs hot water pipes and can sharply reduce the heating efficiency of a boiler or water heater. When hard water is heated, scale is formed. This is due to • the breakdown of calcium and magnesium bicarbonates • their reversion to the highly insoluble carbonate forms • their precipitation from the water • their concentration on the interior surfaces of the water heater Under certain conditions the deposits can form “sludge”. Both sludge and scale can lead to a sharp reduction in operating efficiency.

Automotive steel / Sheet stock for body panels The extruding of angles, channel stock, and framing is a control of extruding dies and feed rates. The dies are cooled with a “milk” like substance that is a water lubricant mixture. The parts are extruded and then drop press formed. The presses are also cooled. The hydraulic saws are cooled with this water lubricant substance. The ScaleBreck system will control the lime scale deposits on the nozzles, pipes, and pumps. In addition, the ScaleBreck system will help keep the water lubricant mixture well mixed when dispersed into the water. Steel / iron foundry The ScaleBreck system controls lime scale deposits in the cooling water for the cooling of the molds. The production rates are governed by temperature controls. Aluminum foundry Aluminum is much less tolerant of water temperature variations. The cooling process is very critical. The ScaleBreck system will control lime scale deposits in the cooling waters for the cooling of the molds. The production rates are dependent on the temperature controls. Engine plants Engine plants are generally assembly machine shops. The processes include: drop forge, compression sizing, and boring, broaching, milling, grinding, turning and polishing. All of these procedures require coolants, lubricants, and temperature controls. The ScaleBreck system will control lime scale formation in all of these functions while extending the life of the tooling. Machine tool coolants Coolants are a mixture of lubricants and water. These lubricants can become contaminated with bacteria and cause problems in the systems which, in turn, can result in an “off-grade” product. The calcium ions in the water can form lime scale that will clog pipes, spray nozzles, orifices, journals, passage ways, flutes, and other surfaces needing to be both cooled and lubricated. One of the highest costs of this operation is in tooling. The set-up person must tear down the machine and retool on a frequent basis. The ScaleBreck system can cut costs of man hours and tooling while keeping the quality control at a high level of performance. Energy savings With better lubricant action by using the ScaleBreck system, there will be less waste heat to be dissipated and less lime scale on the heat exchange surfaces. This will result in lower coolant pumping costs. Environmental issues Environmental issues and the “going green” movement in the world today is more important of an issue that ever before. ScaleBreck is the ideal environmental product while saving your plant a ton of money at the same time.
Hard water is due to high concentrations of the mineral salts calcium and magnesium that are measured in grains of hardness. When water undergoes temperature or pressure change lime-scale will form on surfaces, which often includes the roots and stems of plants, which is detrimental to your growing operation. Once limescale is formed both the calcium and phosphorus cannot be absorbed by the plant. Filtration and pH adjustments using acid are common ways of controlling limescale. ScaleBreck an electronic water conditioning system has moved to the forefront as a simple, safe means of controlling scale in greenhouse operations with no maintenance and low cost.
