Leaves Your Toilet Sparkling clean Without The Use Of Dangerous Chemicals. Curtails The Growth Of Germs And Fungus Too.
Long Lasting - Thousands Of Flushes!
Enjoy chemical free toilet bowl cleaning and end scrubbing forever. Just drop these incredible cleaning cartridges in the tank and forget about them. Stop toilet tank and bowl stains the safe and easy way. Bowl magnets in this chemical free cartridge prevent unsightly lime and mineral buildup.
They create a magnetic field that causes lime and other minerals to be flushed away instead of staining the bowl.
Is there is a scientific basis to magnetic water conditioning?
Is there independent research backing it up?
The answer is yes, there is, and some summaries of research papers from top US research establishments including NASA and the US Department of Defense are shown below.
The science behind magnetic water conditioning
By Dr. Klaus Kronenberg, Ph.D., from an article reprinted from Aqua Magazine
Hard lime and scale forms where ever tap water evaporates or is heated. While it may not be noticeable for a long time, there are commercial appliances that show a white deposit after only a few days of use. Steam cleaners, for instance, may become inoperable after two weeks due to heavy scale deposits. They have to be washed often with acid in order to avoid filter clogs. Also, dishwashers in restaurants need to be freed from the white scale deposits regularly. In the average residential home, it may take a couple of years until a layer of hard scale reduces the cross section of water pipes significantly. And in swimming pools a rough band of sediment often develops along the waterline, which may require mechanical grinding to be removed.
In many cases where the water has a high iron content, the scale deposits develop brownish tint. They may even acquire a deep brown color, as is often evident in toilet tanks. In dairy operations, fatty substances often mix with the sediment and create "butter stone." In regards to cooling towers, circulating water may mix with algaecides, and the ensuing deposits may be toxic. These examples indicate that lime scale may contain more then calcium carbonate. Other minerals dissolved in the water solidify, as well, and can produce unsightly or even dangerous substances.
Scientific research into magnetic water treatment
“Examination to Determine the Physical or Chemical Differences Between Untreated and Magnetically Treated Water” by Schmutzer, M.A., and Hull, G.W.
The UNITED STATES TESTING CENTER INC., performed a test to determine the effectiveness of magnetic water treatment in preventing boiler scale build-up. Upon subjection of the residual salts from both the treated and nontreated samples to x-ray distraction examination, a distinctive difference in the crystalline structure of the deposited residues was noted. The two samples were found to have the same chemical constituents but the x-ray distraction analysis indicates that the dominant crystal species in the untreated sample is calcium sulfate and calcium silicate, while in the treated sample the dominate species is a calcium carbonate and calcium sulfate (non corrosive elements). The samples are therefore physically different.
“Magnetic Treatment of Water” by Hibben, Stuart G.
The Advanced Research Agency of the Department of Defense sponsored research in magnetic treatment of water reporting that the fact generally agreed upon is that a magnetic field reduces the kinetics of crystallization processes and the freedom of movement of charged particles. This limitation of the motion of particles in the field results in an increase in the number of collisions and the formation of crystallization centers. Magnetic treatment is effective if the liquid is passed through the flux of a magnet having a sufficiently field and magnetic gradient, providing that the temperature of the liquid is not too high.
“Comparing Corrosion Rates of Steel Corrosion Inhibitors” by Kuivinen, David E., . Lewis Research Center, Cleveland.
NASA (The National Aeronautics and Space Administration), tested magnetically treated water against chemically treated water for corrosion rates of steel corrosion coupons placed in the two water systems. Reported results were excellent with corrosion rates of 1 to 50 mils per year using chemical inhibitors, with 4 mils per year considered to be acceptable, while corrosion rates of 0.0 mils per year were recorded for magnetic treatment of the water.
