MagnetoHydroDynamics is the principle behind Magnetic Water Conditioning!

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.

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
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.
