Tested by the British Good Housekeeping institute
Tested by the British Good Housekeeping institute for the British edition of Good Housekeeping. The report reads, "If you have ever thought of using a water softener, try the new breed of electronic descalers that eliminate scale and prevent build-up. During testing we noted a softening of the scale around the tap within days, and began flaking off after three weeks. The water also felt silkier, but not soapy or slippery. It also tasted better."

Each Scalewatcher unit comes ready for installation, all hardware included. Installation is non-invasive, with no re-plumbing or cutting of pipes required. Scalewatcher is available in custom sizes, power ratings and configurations, including industrial, clean room, weather-proof, explosion-proof solar powered and remote sensing and measuring of output signal (optional). Units are resistant to vapors, moisture and impact. Stainless steel enclosures are optional.

Modest Power Consumption
Temperatures: Scalewatcher can be specified for any temperature range. Safety: There is no electrical contact between the unit and the fluid system or pipe. Low voltage output. Units are insulated to prevent electrical shock. Pipe materials: Scalewatcher units are designed to operated with any pipe material, including (but not limited to) PVC, copper, stainless steel and glass. Pipe dimensions: ¾” to 50 inches in diameter Flow rates: The patented frequency modulation of the signal of the Scalewatcher units is designed to handle flow rates of all residential, commercial and typical processing and industrial equipment.


4 International Patents

In 1988 Jan P. de Baat Doelman, founder of B&D Ingenieursburo BV., was awarded 4 international patents for his work in the development of Scalewatcher. Using modern integrated circuitry and signal processing, Scalewatcher utilizes properties of electro-physics to prevent and eradicate scale buildup from water-borne calcium carbonate. A complex frequency-modulated waveform. creates a nucleation effect, induced by physical means, which temporarily increases the solubility of the minerals in the liquid and changes the shape and size of calcium carbonate crystals, so that they lose their adhesive properties. Installation simply requires coiling the signal cable around the water main and connected to a 110V power source. Just turn it on, and leave it alone.

Scalewatcher’s patented technology has over 18 years of successfull applications throughout Europe, Asia S. and N. America,
Including the following: Georgia Pacific / Boise Cascade / Smith Kline Beecham / Upjohn / Starbucks / Goodyear
Schlumberger / City of San Francisco Nestle / Frito-Lay Inc./ Quaker Oats / Sara Lee City of Cleveland / Luke AFB /d Ford Motor Co.
General Motors / John Deere / John Hancock Ctr., Chicago / Holiday Inns / DuPont
Excellence in every Scalewatcher sold is our promise.
