MagnetoHydroDynamics is the study of the effects of magnetic energy on fluids!
An environmentally safe alternative to salt-based water softners!

What is it?
Scientist call it MagnetoHydroDynamics. This rather impressive sounding word is the study of the effects of magnetic energy on fluids. Michael Faraday discovered that water flowing past a conductive material will generate a weak electrical charge. This discovery, that was made over 120 years ago, is the basis that we use today when treating water and other fluids with magnetism. There are many principles at work in the phenomenon of MHD. Some of them we understand, while there are many others that we do not yet have answers to. Read the U.S. Department of Energy Technology Alert # DOE/EE-0162

The Basics
Water is one part oxygen and two parts hydrogen. These three atoms are bonded together by what is called a covalence bond. That means that the oxygen atom shares two of it's electrons with the hydrogen atoms, one electron with each hydrogen atom. This structure forms what is called a dipole molecule. This means that the molecule has a slight opposite charge on each end. Water is called the universal solvent because it will, dissolve nearly all inorganic substances and many organic substances. Water solvency is due in large part to the dipole molecule structure.

What Does It All Mean?
As the water flows through the earth it is affected by the earth's natural magnetic field. The flowing water will dissolve and draw itself the mineral salts from the earth. These salts consist mainly of calcium and magnesium. The problem occurs most noticeably when we heat the water. As the water is heated it expands and the dissolved minerals crystallize on the surface of elements that are used to heat the water. Scale build up is the result of this crystallization process. The energy loss of trying to heat water through scale is substantial. A one-half inch thick layer of scale will retard heat transfer by up to 70%.

What Can Magnetics Do?
In 1973 the U.S. Government identified a means of controlling the build-up of scale. A study done for the Air Force concluded that magnetized water will not form scale on heating surfaces. Properly designed and installed magnetic units will prevent the formation of costly scale build-up.

How Does It Work?
The kinetic energy to make it all happen comes from the motion of the water flowing through the magnetic field. As the water flows past the magnets, the molecules are aligned into a uniformed directional field. Water regains it's solvency and will not allow the minerals to form hard crystals of scale. Further, the water will actually re-dissolve existing scale back into solution.

The Effects On Water

*Imparts a charge to the water as it passes through the magnetic field
*Causes calcium to be retained in solution rather than plating on surfaces
*Reduces the odor and taste of sulfur in most cases
*Does not add anything to the water or take anything out
*Eliminates scale buildup "A note about Iron" (A New Window Will Open)
*Reduce the amount of chemicals needed in pools and spas

Why Should I use MCS…?
Scale and corrosion is a major challenge facing home owners, business and industry today. The heat-inhibiting problem of scale build-up costs billions of dollars each year. Chemical treatment is both expensive and environmentally questionable. Corrosion, algae and bacteria compound the problem. MCS units can help. MCS inhibits scale build-up in new pipes and, over time, removes scale from existing pipes, boilers, ice machines and other water using equipment.

Why is MCS the best product on the market?
Quality Control, we use the best materials available and the highest grade of magnets. Our research has developed the most effective product sold today and all units are checked prior to packaging to insure Zero defects in the field.

How Does MCS Work…?
Magnetic Water Treatment units are based upon Faraday's Law of Induction. When water passes through a sufficiently strong and properly configured magnetic field an electron excitation occurs in water, causing naturally occurring crystals in the fluid to precipitate out in a low density snowflake-like form (Aragonite) rather than the hard crystal lime- stone (Calcite) form normally associated with scale in pipes and heat exchangers.

Why do I need multiple units?
There are many factors that are critical to the performance of magnetic water treatment products. One factor is energy imparted to the water. MCS uses the most powerful ceramic magnets available. They focus their energy into the pipe which creates a long field for the water to pass through. This power, coupled with longer contact time of the water to the magnetic energy, equates to the most effective product available.

Will the product remove the minerals from the water?
No. The minerals that are in the water are good for your health. The problem is that they are bad for your plumbing MCS products will keep the minerals in solution so that they do not accumulate in your plumbing Or on your water heater element.

How will the MCS system save me money?
The U.S. Bureau of Standards reports that just 3/8" of scale build-up requires 55% more energy. That means an additional $247 more a year for that same hot water.

What About The Cost…?
The initial cost of the MCS system is less than 1/2 of most water softeners and since there is no additional cost for energy, maintenance or chemicals the system will soon pay for it self.

Can I Install Them Myself...?
Yes. You can install them. It's simple! See installation instructions.
