Vulcan References and Studies

Eco-friendly Vulcan systems

Vulcan systems are global leaders in HFAEF water treatment systems against limescale and rust with installations in every industry sector. Suitable from the smallest 15mm pipe to the largest industrials with unlimited flow up to 1meter diameter pipes.

The effectiveness of the physical water treatment has not only been proven by users but that there are also theoretical and practical physical-chemical proofs. View PDF here →

This test showed that a tendency to form lime deposits is reduced considerably by the Vulcan V5000 water treatment device. View PDF here →

Paper 1: The present study investigated the feasibility of RF electrical fields in mitigating CaCO3 fouling in cooling water. Three different voltages and two frequencies were used for the RF electric fields produced directly in water with varying cold-side velocity. Artificial hard water was used. Fouling resistances for the PWT- treated cases decreased by 34–88% from the values for no-treatment cases . View PDF here →

Paper 4: Induction of a Radio-Frequency Alternating Electric Field (RFAEF) in water at a specific range of frequency and antenna voltage, along with its distinct sinewave waveform, changes the way minerals precipitate, minimizing hard-lime scale by producing instead a non-adherent mineral powder in the bulk water. Moreover, the unsaturated solution that is created, along with enhanced carbon dioxide production, dissolves gradually the existing scale in plumbing tubes. Furthermore, the RFAEF inductance device demon- strates a major improvement over other pulsed-power systems, proving this electronic antifouling technique suitable for both hard and soft waters, as well as for large-scale applications. View PDF here →

Recent Projects

Vulcan descaler for Food Factory

Vulcan descaler for Food Factory

Vulcan effect on the boilers: The boiler had been non-stopping running for more than 1 year, and a small layer of 0.5mm scale was found. After 2 months with Vulcan, the scale can be removed by a finger easily.

Vulcan effect in pipes and sterilisers: Scale has been accumulated for 15 years, it was not cleaned before installing Vulcan. After 3 months with Vulcan, we already see the scale coming out.

Vulcan Descaler for Berger Condiminium

At the last general assembly, a study was requested on the quality of water with a high limestone content and on possible measures to reduce scaling.
The Vulcan system was installed on June 18. The users were contacted on 19 August. Residential users reported positive results and the Vulcan Systems were installed to treat the whole residential block of apartments.

Vulcan Descaler for InterContinental Hotel – Kumming

Vulcan Descaler was installed to gently solve the scaling problems of the entire kitchen water system: the reduced water volume, the increased water pressure, the clogging of the dishwasher outlet, the scaling of the steamer, the low heating efficiency, the increased maintenance and the reduced overall efficiency.
After a 2 month period the scale has been completely turned into powder, so there is no need to open it for cleaning, just by operating the regular drainage function, it can keep the hot water tank clean and free of scale. Due to the good results, the cooperation will also be carried out in the hotel‘s hot water supply system and central air conditioning system.

Vulcan Descaler for Maternity Home

The system was installed on our main source of water supply in the main water supply to the building. Before installing VULCAN, we treated the scale with water softeners, which required large amounts of salt, cleaning and maintenance.
– For dishwashing systems, hot water for showers and washing machines we used salt softeners.
– Drinking water boilers and kettles in the wards required weekly cleaning with tartaric acids.
– Shower heads needed frequent treatment to remove scale deposits.

After installing the VULCAN system:
– We have stopped consuming acids to clean the drinking water containers. They can now be cleaned by hand.
– Water softeners have been taken out of operation and no more salt is used!
– The dishwashers are clean!
– The shower heads < After a period of cleaning all the pipes > do not need cleaning and no replacement is
required.

Savings:
– In cleaning materials, filters, maintenance time, and not needing to stop the use of facilities just for the sake of cleaning the water systems.
– Financial savings: the price of a VULCAN system is covered within a reasonably short period of time.

Vulcan descaler for Nestle Ice-cream

The ice cream factory of Nestlé Kiryat Malachi selected Vulcan descaler for the hot water tank and for the CIP (cleaning-in-place machines). Nestle were encountering very hard scale problems that needed constant acid cleaning treatment. Due to the excellent results from Vulcan systems running for 3 years, additional Vulcan descaler unts were were introduced to solve the scale problems from the hot water piping in the CIP system. Without Vulcan, the hot water pipe was blocked and the production had to be stopped to replace it. The Vulcan S10 descaler was installed on the supply pipe and solved the problem. After installation the container looks shiny and clean inside and outside. The filters at the entrance also stay clean. No more extra treatment has been required since then.

Vulcan descaler for Tiakang Offices

Vulcan descaler for Office Building

There are 4 heat exchanger systems in the building, which have to be treated. For the business purpose, the hot water supply can not be interrupted. 4 sets of Vulcan S10 were installed to gently clean the heat exchangers and the whole piping system without stopping the machines.

Vulcan Installation
The black tanks are heat exchanger systems. The heat exchangers have been running for a long time, thus, the efficiency has been reduced because of limescale. Therefore, 3 sets of Vulcan were installed at the water inlet of each heat exchanger.

Another Vulcan S10 was also installed at the water inlet of the heat exchanger. The advantage of Vulcan: no chemical, no need to stop hot water supply.

Vulcan descaler for Acacia Davo Hotel

Acacia Hotel Davao provides 260 guest rooms and 9 spacious event spaces.

Our company was very pleased with the Vulcan results installed on our main condenser line and main hot water line in Acacia Hotel Manila.
Although there were a few conflicts that happened last May, the problems have been solved gradually until November when the approach temperature was back to normal at 3-6 °C due to the instructions you have given and a few more regular cleanings.
Also, this year’s summer season in the Philippines, the temperature reached its hottest record at 37 °C here in Manila, however, due to the improved and cleaned A/C system, we haven’t got any problem with it.

With those positive results, our head office has decided to install another unit in our next hotel, located at Davao City. The A/C system design was the same as ours, with 16-inch pipe.

Be’er Sheva Grand Mall – Vulcan Descaler

Vulcan descaler for the Be’er Sheva Grand Mall

The Be’er Sheva Grand Mall is the largest shopping mall in the southern region of Israel, located in Be’er Sheva – the capital of the Negev. It features 220 stores.

The Vulcan S250 was installed on the roof. The temperature at this time was 38 – 40 °C. In winter, it is rainy and the wrap should be sealed to IP-68. Vulcan impulse bands were well wrapped and the Vulcan unit was in the outdoor water proof box.

Each cooling tower has 2 heat exchangers.
The difference in pressure increased between the inlet and outlet of the heat exchanger, which showed a developing blockage. The heat exchangers had lost in work capacity every month due to the multiplicity of scale and rust.
5 months after installation, there are no scale issues in any cooling tower heat exchanger systems.
Due to the excellent results, more Vulcan will be installed for the rest of the company’s facilities in Israel.
The differences are clear:
 – The pressure difference is lower between the exit and the inlet of the heat exchanger in the right tower.
 – The water coming out of the heat exchanger is colder in the right tower.
Since Vulcan descalers were installed, the regular chemical cleaning process has been stopped.

Due to the successful installation, performance and results of the Vulcan Descaler systems will now be installed at other sites that the group manages and operates.
