NextTM Scale Stop
No, NextTM Scale Stop simply starts off a catalytic process of creating micro crystals of scale, which then continue to attract calcium and magnesium ions, preventing them attaching to pipework, metals etc, as they travel through your water system. No chemicals are added to the water and the media does not leach into the water.
No. NextTM Scale Stop does not add or remove anything from the water. The healthy minerals remain in the water but do not form scale on pipework or critical components with the plant, building etc.
Once installed, NextTM Scale Stop costs nothing to run and the bead media is simply changed every 3 years. When compared to a traditional salt water softener, the NextTM Scale Stop system typically saves thousands of pounds per year in running costs in reduced water consumption, reduced water waste, reduced staff and maintenance requirements as well as there is no salt requirement.
Yes, for a minimum of a few weeks.
NextTM Scale Stop is manufactured in the USA.
No. Just like UV, Quantum Disinfection needs primary filtration to work properly, otherwise the charged sites can become clogged. It is disinfection media, not filtration media.
No. Quantum DisinfectionTM does not leach anything in the water. All of the bactericidal action happens because of a catalytic surface action.
Yes. Quantum DisinfectionTM media is component certified to NSF 42, meaning it does not leach anything into the water.
Quantum DisinfectionTM needs a packed bed to ensure water contact.
Yes. Quantum DisinfectionTM technology has been rigorously tested and posted excellent results by reputable laboratories. All of these results are available upon request by interested companies.
Quantum DisinfectionTM works across a broad spectrum of flows and water sources. To date, the media has been tested in gravity based purifiers and at flows up to 100 lpm with success.
No. Quantum DisinfectionTM is more like UV. Is it not a filter and its purpose is not to filter the water, but rather to disinfect the water.
Quantum DisinfectionTM can be applied in multiple industries, but our most popular application is potable water. Typically, Quantum Disinfection™ is applied after primary filtration, just before the water delivery to ensure disinfection just before use. Other industry uses have included surface water, cooling towers, cooling oils, waste water and emergency drinking water disinfection, greenhouse and irrigation water supplies.
The warrantied life is up to 740,000 litres.
