Vulcan Benefits for Commercial and Industrial Applications
Managing a building, hotel or business demands constant observation of all technical equipment, sanitary stations, outdoor areas, etc. Vulcan helps to improve manageability, sustainability and profitability in many areas. Vulcan helps water-fed appliances to reach their maximum life expectancy and keeps their maintenance to a minimum.
Vulcan Benefits for the piping system
Reduction of Scale Deposits
Vulcan takes away the adhesive power of scale particles so that scale is simply washed away with your water as a fine powder. New scale-formation is prevented.
Vulcan dismantles existing deposits
Vulcan carefully dissolves already existing deposits in the piping system. The scale build-up process is reversed and the pipes gradually become clean again. This take-out process will not block up your pipes or drain because the treated crystals are microscopic in size and wash away in the water.
Metal pipes often suffer from pitting corrosion. The electric Vulcan impulses generate a metal-carbonate protective layer that prevents pitting corrosion.
Increased Water Pressure
Vulcan sanitizes the pipes from scale deposits and can even restore a pipe’s full diameter. Water can flow freely again and you regain normal water pressure.
Vulcan minimizes rust
In most cases whenever there are scale deposits you will find rust shortly thereafter. The rust typically imbeds itself n the scale deposits. Because rust oxides are red, the scale deposits in metal pipes then often appear red in color. too. When the Vulcan-treatment reduces scale, it also takes away rust with it.
Vulcan minimizes bacterial growth in pipes
Thick scale deposits with their uneven surfaces are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Once the scale is gone, there are no more nesting areas where bacteria can grow.
Vulcan controls scale build-up in tankless water heaters permanently and reduces maintenance as heat exchangers get fewer deposits. Your water heater will work much more efficiently once again, and you can extend the time to your next service maintenance. Typically, the water heating bills will be substantially reduced.
How scale is killing water heaters.
Heating systems regain full performance
When water is heated in a hot water tank or with a tank-less water heater the hard water always leads to thick deposits on the heating elements. This layer inevitably causes a great reduction in the capability of the heat to transfer. With Vulcan, deposits are minimized and your heating performs at a much higher capacity again.
Vulcan and water softeners
In production and industrial settings, you may need a softener where there is no tolerance (zero tolerance) for any calcium in the water. Vulcan can then improve the performance of the softener. However, in numerous cases, you can get rid of your softener and replace it with a Vulcan system.
a) Vulcan replaces water softeners
Vulcan is the eco-friendly alternative to traditional salt-based water softeners. The salt that is distributed into water when using salt-softeners is polluting the environment and is not recommended for young children or older people. The old softener system can 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. This cuts down costs of salt, maintenance intervals will be extended and there is less malfunctioning in the backwash valves, etc.
Solar Water Heating
Vulcan prevents scale build-up in the system. It keeps 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.

Vulcan significantly reduces scale deposits. Bleed water is no longer toxic and bacterial contamination is minimized. With Vulcan, the cooling tower can be operated at higher cycles of scale concentration which minimizes water usage.

Reverse Osmosis Filters
When Vulcan is installed before a RO-system it helps in two ways:
1.) The filter membranes last longer and work more effectively as deposits on the sensitive membranes are minimized.
2.) Vulcan helps that the particularly hard permeate water (leftover water) can be handled easier and causes no damage further down the drain.
Hotels / Restaurants / Kitchens
Dishwashers operate with less detergent and less additives. The use of dishwasher detergent can be reduced by up to 25%. Typical spotting on dishware is reduced or no longer apparent.
Reverse Osmosis Filters
Reverse osmosis filters for your tap drinking water last longer. Water filters and RO-membranes will work more efficiently and the permeate is easier to handle.
Vulcan improves the handling of grease separators in two ways: The grease that is collected on top forms less clusters and is more homogeneous which makes it easier to pump it into an external tank. The Vulcan-treatment also prevents the remaining water from scaling in the tank; pipes, valves and pumps stay cleaner.

Ice machines build less deposits in their production which keeps the machine running more reliable. All ice-cream machines as well as ice cube or crushed ice production face similar problems.

Laundry and Washing Machines
Cleaning is more effective as Vulcan-treated water lathers noticeably more. The same amount of detergent will give you better cleaning results. You can often reduce the amount of washing detergents in your daily use or stay away from very aggressive agents. Furthermore, Vulcan extends the life of the machine’s heating element.
Shinier, smoother surfaces in the bathroom again on baths, sinks, fixtures, shower heads, etc. You will quickly notice that scale is still visible but acts like a fine ‘dust’ which can be removed easily with a damp cloth. Notably less cleaning agents are needed and the use of harsh detergents can now be avoided. This saves many hours when cleaning the rooms.
Garden irrigation with sprinklers becomes more reliable as the nozzles stay free of scale longer. Vulcan-treated water can be absorbed and processed better by plants. As there are less scale spots on the leaves your plants take up water and rain water better and look healthier.
Mineral rich drinking water
Vulcan does not interfere with the natural composition of drinking water. Important minerals remain in the water for a healthy diet. Especially young children and elderly people benefit from the healthy calcium and magnesium content that naturally is found in tap water.
Water tastes and smells better and gives food and beverages its natural flavor
Vulcan keeps the natural taste of water as it does not change its chemical composition. This gives you the best tasting water possible. Vulcan cleans the piping system once again and therefore cleans it from rust particles. Rust is gone and can no longer add any unwanted flavor any more.
Spas, swimming pools and jacuzzis
Vulcan makes pool cleaning much easier: scale on the water line is looser and easier to wipe off. Pool covers and tiles on the floor or walls will show less hard scale stains. Vulcan reduces deposits in the pipes and valves. The sensitive circulation pumps last longer, sand filter need less changing and you can cut down on chlorine tablets.
The combination of water, circulating air and pressure in a hot tub tremendously enhances scale build-up. Vulcan makes the cleaning of the tub easier. Vulcan reduces deposits in the pipes and valves. Covers and and tiles on the floor or walls will show less hard scale stains.
Spa Treatment Areas & Wellness
Shower heads stay clean longer. Soap and detergent use can be cut back by up to 25%. The water will feel as if it is “softer”. Generally, soap will lather up more. Skin will feel smoother and hair will be much more manageable because the scale particles no longer makes it so frizzy.
