ESF Water Descaler – The ESF Has Taken Over

Made in USAWater Descaler – ESF

Little did we know back in 1996 when we completed testing of a revolutionary new process to prevent hard water scale that it would become the central core of our business.

Our version of a water descaler or scale preventer was named Enviro Scale Free or ESF. Elimination of scale formation and removal of existing scale has numerous benefits including-

  • Reduced water heating energy. A film of scale within a heater acts as an insulation barrier between the source of heat (flame) and water. Over time, the buildup of scale becomes so thick that the heat source is on 2 or 3 times as long increasing energy use by 200% or 300%. Additionally, this excess heat often damages heater tanks and components beyond repair.
  • Better water pressure. Scale build-up within pipes, especially at fittings, restricts flow with a resulting loss in pressure.
  • Lowers water use. With a reduction in pressure, the tendency of people to overcome this by letting the water run longer and ultimately increase water consumption by 25% or more.
  • Water fixtures last longer with fewer repairs. In addition to being unsightly and destructive to plating, scale is abrasive and destroys internal seals.
  • Water using appliances last longer. As with fixtures, hardness scale dramatically impairs the moving parts and seals within items such as dish washers, clothes washers, toilet valves, beverage dispensers and humidifiers.
  • Plant growth is enhanced. The processes within the ESF lowers the surface tension of water enabling a lessor volume of water to penetrate more deeply into a plant improving growth and productivity.

Unlike other water descalers or scale preventers on the market, our ESF was designed to adapt as a stand-alone product or be included within a tank which fostered the development of an additional, extensive line of products including the ESF PLUS, Maxi-Cure and Aquafer. The combined products have undoubtably prevented the waste of TENS OF MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF WATER and eliminated the discharge of MILLIONS OF POUNDS OF CHEMICALS AND SALT into the environment.

As a water descaler or scale preventer, the ESF consists of two distinct processes. The first is a catalytic chamber where a negligible drop in water pressure upsets the carbon dioxide-bicarbonate alkalinity-calcium balance causing molecules of calcium carbonate particles to form. These particles then flow through a flexible, inert catalytic material where the individual particles nucleate into larger entities. The water then enters multiple magnetic fields where a relatively weak voltage is induced by the application of Faraday’s Law equation. The resulting energy acts on the water in different ways. First, it breaks down the zeta potential separating the mildly charged hardness particles causing them to agglomerate into larger more stable, long-life particles. Second the clustering of water molecules around dissolved ions causing ionic radii is canceled and thirdly hydrogen bonded water clusters are reduced. The last two causing the surface tension drop.

  • Farms and ranches
  • Research facilities

The ESF Hard Water Descaler / Scale Preventer is used by many to protect their equipment, as well as many commercial enterprises.

What Does the ESF descaler Do?

Hard water scale blocks nozzles, coats pipework, and significantly decreases the efficiency of boilers and heat exchangers leading to substantially increased energy consumption.

The scale preventer avoids these costly challenges by treating water with a patented system that forms calcium hardness crystals, which pass through a strong magnetic field, which renders them harmless to plumbing fixtures. This produces water that is much easier to clean. In addition, the surface tension of the water is greatly reduced, resulting in a higher quality of water absorption in the human body and plant life.

Commercial Applications of the ESF

ESF Descaler / Scale PreventerThese are just some of the business types that benefit from reducing hard water issues from magnetic water treatment for scale prevention.

  • Landscaping: Scale prevention improves soil percolation and better root propagation by lowering the surface tension of the water.
  • Restaurants: The ESF prevents scale buildup in icemakers, steamers, and coffee makers.
  • Hospitals: Kitchen maintenance is reduced, and protection is provided for autoclaves, steam tables, and laundry equipment.
  • Specialty equipment: The ESF Scale Preventer is used for scale prevention pre-treatment in commercial reverse osmosis systems, car washes, cooling towers, greenhouses, and many more.
