Chemical Free Self-Cleaning Electrolytic Scale Remover (Tiaano ElSr-SC) – System Operation

o   The treatment system must operate using the electrolysis principle with the electro chemical reactor, consisting electrolyzer of anode and cathodes.  Water to flow through the reactor between the cathode and anode, continuously for electrical current to flow and cause the dissociation of the salts in the water into ions, should also precipitate all scale forming ions, not just magnesium and calcium but other ions that are susceptible to dropping out of the liquid at high pH viz., Silica, Ferum, Manganese etc. 

o   The cations are attracted to the cathode, while the anions are attracted to the anodes. Anodes of the reactor is to be made of titanium with the proprietary platinum group precious metal bonding on the surface. Anodes can resists to high electrical current and do not dissolve in water.

o   The cations include among others the calcium, which is the scale builder in the water.  This calcium combines with carbonates present in the water and “controlled scale” is attracted by the cathode.  The qualities of this controlled scale prevent it from adhering firmly to the cathode, thus allowing for its scraping and flushing.

o   An alkaline environment (pH > 9.5) is created in cathode surface of the reactor by electro chemistry. As a result of this, crystallized calcium and scale deposits and precipitates in cathode. Also, this highly alkaline environment does not permit any micro-organism to survive. 

o   The pH level in the water system does NOT change. The pH levels of the water in the reaction tank's water inlet and water outlet are the same.

o   Next to the anodes, up to 30% of the chlorides that are naturally present in the water, are transformed to free chlorine or hypochlorite (OCl-).  In the electrolysis process, radical oxygen, ozone and hydrogen peroxide are also being produced. Chlorine combined with the ozone and oxygen provides sufficient reduction of microbes to maintain and control bacteria and algae in the cooling tower and further contribute to the disinfection of water inside the reaction tank.

o   The scraper brush and drain valve in the Electrolytic Scale Removal System reactor reaction tank should remove the precipitated scale and other sediments and pollutants from water in the tank, which prevents a breeding ground for the development or proliferation of micro-organisms. Removal of scale deposits is fully automatic and can take place several times a day according to the feed water quality.


Since the Legionella bacteria is being created under conditions of stagnant water, sediment, scale deposits, and corrosive areas, it was found that in most cases it is being prevented while using the Electrochemical Treatment Electrolytic Scale Removal System helps prevent growth of thebacteria.  The Electrolytic Scale Removal System to be capable of working in a maximum temperature of ~ 50ºC.
