Anti-Scale and Biofilm Prevention System

The scale and biofilm prevention system is very versatile and accurate to prevent the build-up of hardness scale (due to high concentrations of Calcium and Magnesium ions) and bio-film in various water reticulation systems.

These systems include

  • Irrigation
  • Boiler and Cooling
  • Household use
  • Municipal water
  • Borehole water

System Capacity

This system can treat as little as 2000/d. It can be adjusted to treat any volume of water, because the dosing pumps and meters used can be selected for the specific need.

Furthermore, it can be used to dose different chemicals, insecticides, plant nutrients and more.

Running Cost

In comparison to traditionally water softener treatment systems for such large volumes of water per day, the anti-scale dosing unit has a much lower maintenance cost per month with an excellent effectiveness capacity. 

Working Mechanism

The system makes use of a water meter that is connected to chemical dosing pumps. These pumps are set to the required dosing regime as required by the specific type of water and its intended use.

The meter activates the dosing pumps with every 10L that passes the meter. This pulse can be adjusted according to every specific need (e.g. one pulse every 100L).

The Scale and Biofilm prevention system is ideal to combat hard water problems in Boilers, coolers, irrigation, hotels, large guest houses and chalets. With biofilm dosing added to it as a second stage, harmful bacteria will also be eliminated where needed. 

Scale Prevention Chemical

The chemical used SB1400 is designed to exchange Sodium ions for Calcium and/or Magnesium ions.

The chemical reaction is very stable, it prevents the Calcium and/or Magnesium ions from precipitating in the reticulation systems.

The SB1400 also helps to remove build-up of scale formed previously. Dosing requirements range from 4 – 8mg/l.

Biofilm Prevention

A chlorine based product is used to keep the system free of bacteria and pathogens.

The growth of algae in the system will also be prevented, keeping the system clean and open.

Dosing requirements range from 10 – 20mg/l, depending on the water chlorine demand.
