Heating and Heat Exchangers
When water is heated with oil, gas, electric or solar heating technologies scale settles on the heating elements and heat exchangers. The loss of energy due to the less efficient or blocked heat transfer is tremendous and the heat transmission coefficient decreases. Vulcan helps to reduce the scaling, and water tanks in the primary and secondary circuit will need less cleaning. The frequency of cleaning periods can be extended. Effective on all types of exchangers: tube bundle heat exchangers, spiral tube heat exchangers, plate heat exchangers, ripped recuperators, etc.
Solar water heating
Using a solar powered water heater is a smart green alternative to traditional heating methods. Vulcan prevents scale build-up in the system. It keeps the heat exchangers and distributor pipes clean. Furthermore, Vulcan reduces scale build-up in collectors, it protects hot water tanks and vacuum tubes and keeps the system from over-heating. There is no more need to circulate acids.

Cooling towers
As scale does not evaporate with water, it quickly accumulates in the towers and clogs up the system. This causes malfunctioning and high expenses for maintenance. Vulcan achieves a significant reduction of scale deposits. Bleed water is no longer toxic and bacterial contamination is minimized. In addition, with Vulcan, the cooling tower can be operated at higher cycles of scale concentration, minimizing water usage.

Grease traps
All businesses in the food processing industry, kitchens, restaurant, carwashes and many other companies need to operate a grease separator. The grease that is collected on top forms less clusters which makes it easier to pump it off. Vulcan also prevents the remaining water from scaling in the tank and pipes, and valves and pumps stay cleaner.

Ice Machines
Processing water to become ice consumes high amounts of energy. The ice cube's quality largely depends on the water quality which is improved by Vulcan just before the ice-making process.

Reverse Osmosis (RO)-systems
When Vulcan is installed before a RO-system it helps in two ways:
1. As calcium-crystals are smoother after the Vulcan- treatment, this reduces deposits on the sensitive RO-filter membranes. The RO-system runs longer and more effectively.
2. The permeate (leftover water) is difficult to handle as it has a particularly high degree of water hardness after filtration. Here, Vulcan helps that the permeate can be better handled and prevents it from causing damage further down the drain.

Vulcan and water softeners

In production and industrial settings, you may need a softener when there is no (zero) tolerance for any calcium in the water. However, in numerous cases, you can eliminate your softener and replace it with a Vulcan system. If you need to operate a softener, Vulcan can be installed as an addition which helps the softener's performance:

a. Vulcan replaces water softeners

Vulcan is the eco-friendly alternative to regular salt-based water softeners. The salt that is added to the water is polluting the environment and is not recommended for young children or older people to drink. The old system can usually easily be put out of use by simply bypassing it.


b. Vulcan as an addition to water softeners

Vulcan is the eco-friendly alternative to regular salt-based water softeners. However, if you want to keep the softener running due to special reasons, you can save large sums of money when using Vulcan as an aid. The use of Vulcan will decrease the amount of salt that you need to add. This cuts down costs for salt, maintenance intervals will be extended, less malfunctioning in the backwash valves etc.
