1. What different results does the ED2000
from magnetic products?
The ED2000 uses a square wave current to set up an oscillating electric
field within the solenoid that we have formed on the condenser or heat exchanger
supply line. As the charged mineral ions come into contact they collide and
precipitate into sub-micron crystals. These crystals grow into larger crystals
and will not adhere to the condenser tubes. This collision and subsequent
precipitation is caused by the oscillating electric field forcing the charged
mineral ions to constantly change direction (the positive ions align themselves
with the direction of the electric field and the negative ions in the opposite
direction), collide and come out of solution.
The magnetic systems attempt to create the same agitation. They use a
north/south polarity and are completely dependent upon velocity (Lorenz Force)
to cause the collision and subsequent agitation. High velocity is very important
to the success of the magnetic systems and may pose a challenge to successful
treatment because in many cases, the velocity is not great enough to cause the
It is well know that the magnetic systems also attract magnetite in the fluid
and scaling of the magnetite is formed locally at the installation site. In time
this may cause failure because of the reduction of the flow rate in these types
2. Does the ED2000 oscillating electric field
through cast iron pipes to the fluid 100% effectively?
Yes. The ED2000 system is effective on both ferrous and non-ferrous pipes.
Most applications of the ED2000 are on ferrous pipes, where the treatment
has worked 100%.
3. Do large motors or pumps negatively impact the
No, they do not negatively impact the performance of the ED2000 system
It is best to install a coil downstream from the pump and before each heat
transfer site. If there is fouling present in the pump (not usually the case in
conventional cooling systems) we would install a coil on both the suction and
discharge sides of the pump.
4. Does the ED2000 molecular agitation 100%
effective at turbulent-flow fluid?
5. Except providing power, does the ED2000 panel
have another function?
There is an alarm light indicator and a power indicator light.
6. Has a limit been set to flow-speed while using
There is a minimum velocity required for the fluid to pass through the
solenoid coil but there is no maximum. The minimum is 0.3 m/s or 1
7. Does flow velocity impact
There is no maximum flow velocity. The technology is limited when there is
very little flow and a high heat flux such as a domestic hot water heater. The heat exchangers
in small water systems such as vending machines and diesel engines are not a concern as there is good flow
and a much lower heat flux (Btu’s/cm).
8. How will the ED2000 treatment affect existing water
The treatment will not affect the biocides or inhibitors currently being
used. The process creates a mechanical agitation of the mineral ions by using an
oscillating electric field to cause precipitation. A different precipitation
would also occur if you introduced heat, pH change, or a pressure change. Sub
micron size crystals are formed at the solenoid coil. The crystals will grow as they move
downstream. In recirculating systems they will settle as sludge at the lowest
point and then can be rinsed out.
