There are many different technologies that many different manufacturers use to try and create the elusive non-adhering lime. However, Zinc has always been the prefered. The BIG problem has always been fouling. Our patent is there to stop the fouling from happening.
The Aquabion uses a galvanic and electrolytic solution which is combined with our patented self-cleaning agitators. This means that the tiny amounts of zinc ions that are released react with the calcite ions to create non-adhering lime.
Domestic and industrial users get the same technology and are built to the same standard. For some reason, this is a USP (Unique Selling Point).
We think you should ensure your chosen solution meets the following criteria:
Zinc sacrificial anode functions as a galvanic element, in order to turn the aggressive limescale into neutral, non-adhering lime.
What is different with Aquabion is that it operates without electricity, chemicals or magnets. The agitators up and downstream agitate the water causing the self-cleaning function of the units themselves. Aquabion is not perfect but will efficiently stop 95% of limescale from hard damaging deposits.
