is costly because of the energy losses caused by it. It has been reported
that the heat transfer coefficient is reduced 8.0 % by a scale thickness
of only 0.01 inch(0.0254cm) and by 38.0% for a scale thickness of
only 0.1 inch(0.254cm).
For silica scale, the heat transfer coefficient is reduced 88.0
% and 95.0 % for these same thickness.
Chemical treatment has been the principle method used in treating
to prevent and remove scale. However, it is very expensive in time
and money, and in the past few years has fallen into disfavor because
of the ecological pollution problems associated with it. In addition,
the effectiveness of chemical treatment is question-able as evidenced
by the very large costs for the periodic cleaning in systems that
are treated chemically, supposedly, to prevent scale formation;
and by the damage that improper chemical treatment often causes.
The damage occurs primarily because effective chemical treatment
requires continuous accurate monitoring by professional personnel.
Whereas, in most cases the treatment is done by personnel with absolutely
no training in chemistry, who use the theory of simply "The
more, the better or prescribing twice as much will be twice as good."
This philosophy, as one can well imagine, produces disasterous results
many times by actually causing scale formation from the chemicals
Despite of all those proven results of Magnetic Water Treatment
system(ACE-MAG), still unable to figuring out exact number or amount
of scale prevention, removal or cost savings as data expected to
be obtained is all variable depending upon the nature of conditions
under which this unit is operated on.
Nevertheless, it is good enough on improving operational conditions
by reducing scale deposits to the great extent. For instance, if
you are forced to stop operation for cleaning once in a three-month,
you may be allowed to do it once in a six-month time by using ACE-MAG,
and that period could be extended as time goes on. Accordingly you
may be able to see less amount of chemical consumptions. In an environment
where scale build-up is unavoidable, cost savings and improvement
in efficiency could be well achieved with ACE-MAG.
For those who are troubled with more serious and heavier scale problem,
ACE-MAG could be the best option. In this regard, we are looking
forward to entering into area of sea water production lines in the
