In its basic configuration, it is fitted with two magnetic rings, one for cold water inlet and another to the heater’s hot water outlet. The right system for your house can be selected here, depending on the size of your home and kind of water hardness.
You may also want to install (as recommended by our experts) North Pole (-) charging VITALIZER® on the inlet of cold drinking water pipe under the kitchen sink for an augmenting, more alkaline and oxidizing effect on your body along with better tasting water.
Install the “VITALIZER®” along with ”RWE-S” system to get healthy, more efficient and cost-effective water in your home.
Salt-free Water For Your Home
Water naturally processed through MAGNETIZER® contains healthy minerals that do not form scale in pipes anymore. It is most suitable for humans, animals, and plants in homes. Read about the unlimited benefits below.
Reduced Levels Of Iron
With the high content of iron in the water, its toxin level becomes high, causing ill health if used in drinking and bathing but several tests have proven that MAGNETIZER® lowers the iron content in the water to a considerable extent. It has been, however, observed that if the iron content is very high, then the iron filter must be installed first and later MAGNETIZER® must be re-installed. directly after the filter.
Better Tasting Water
Users worldwide affirm that they have better tasting water which becomes odor-free and smells pleasanter after using MAGNETIZER®. The system generates de-gasification that quashes sulfur and chlorine odors which are either eradicated or diminished.
With the use of MAGNETIZER®, water is softened with which the skin is more hydrated and hair becomes silky and manageable. Lathering of soap is easier as no chemicals are involved in softening the water so no slippery fee. Bathing with this conditioned water is healthier and it eliminates usage of excessive hand creams, shampoos, and lotions due to extra hydration.
The Efficient Household
There is a lesser requirement of detergents and clothes softeners while laundry gets cleaner, whiter, and non-soapy. Filter efficiency boosts up as toxic particulates are broken down by MAGNETIZER® and there is no carbonate clogging that makes a cleaner filter.
Kitchens And Bathrooms
Your kitchen and bathroom sinks, tubs, fixtures, and toilets are stained with hard water scaling giving you a tough time with cleanups, but with MAGNETIZER® at your rescue, you can diminish the scaling which is dissolved and eliminated by it. Acid stains are also eliminated from your kitchen and bathrooms leaving them shiny and sparkling.
The Cost of Not Having Magnetizer
The cost of hard water scale: you are being robbed of hundreds of dollars every year on your water heating bills and about thousands on the home water radiator heating system due to hard water scaling, coating, and insulating inside the heater or boiler.
According to a report by the US government, consumers can save up to 48% of energy bills by eliminating 3/8th of an inch (9.5 mm) of scale deposits. In this way, a family of four can save about $750.00 every year by removing pipe choking scaling of minerals.
As reported by the US Department of Interior, half-inch (13 mm) scaling on the heating coil, boilerplate or baseboard radiators lead to a loss in energy efficiency, and 60% more fuel is required to heat up in presence of scaling.
The problem of scaling causes an extra expense of $750.00* to an average family every year in wasted energy required to heat their water, but the MAGNETIZER® system can help you get rid of all these problems by organically dissolving the scaling and neutralizing the water corrosion
The approximate replacement cost: Water Heater: $300.00-$600.00, Heater Element: $75.00, Faucet Set: $90.00, Entire Plumbing System: $2,000.00-$4,000.00, Washing Machine Dishwasher: $360.00
MAGNETIZER® also prevents toxins and chemical build-up in the system and the appliances and pipes last long without any maintenance along with less energy usage by providing savings in money and fuel.
1. Provides a green and healthy environment by improving water quality naturally – no salt or chemicals are needed to have the better behavior and taste of water.
2. Removes existing scale build-up, stops corrosion and metal pitting in pipes, plumbing, armature, faucets, showerheads, toilets, washing machines, dishwashers, kettles, etc., and prevents new scale to build up.
3. Eliminates the need for salt-based softeners that release unhealthy sodium into your water.
4. Saves hundreds of dollars on water heating, with reduced gas or electric bills due to lack of scale-induced Heat Transfer Loss and better pump work as now magnetized water has a lowered surface tension.
5. Prolongs the life of appliances like hot water tanks, boilers, washing machines, dishwashers, coffee machines, teapots, ice makers, etc.
6. Protects house investment and its resale value due to the quality of its plumbing, bacteria inhibition, or the natural softness of water.
7. Lowers water’s surface tension – saves water, improves its behavior, efficiency, and flow with the increased water pressure.
8. Water contains healthy minerals (Ca, Mg) that are not incrusting inside of pipes anymore, but rather flowing now out while suspended in water.
9. Neutralizes (stabilizes) pH of water making it more pleasant to use.
10. Water is “wetter” and lathers better with no slippery residue and feel.
11. Fully oxygenates water – making it better for human, animal, and plant use.
12. Water tastes and smells better, due to suppressed sulfur odor, full oxygenation, and stabilized pH.
13. Kills bacteria and algae (in the US this may increase the home’s resale value due to EPA bacteria regulations regarding coliform count reduction).
14. Reduces iron (Fe) content and its concentration present in the residue drops rapidly.
14. Reduces household cleaning and maintenance.
15. Reduces the use of surfactants, detergents, and soaps.
16. Skin is softer and less dry with fewer hand creams needed due to better-hydrated skin with reported savings in skincare products.
17. Hair is silkier and softer with fewer shampoos and conditioners used.
18. Naturally softer water makes clothes come cleaner, softer (not stiff anymore) and last longer with fewer laundry detergents used.
19. Works very well with filters, prolonging their lifespan, due to the lowered surface tension of the water passing through, breaking up of particles, and extended regeneration cycle (Note: it does not filter or purify water, but very well complements filters)
20. In reverse osmosis (RO) equipment reduces processing time and effort required to force the water molecule through a membrane, hence the energy-saving and protection of the RO membrane against larger dirt particles.
21. Can be easily transferred from an old house or apartment to a new one.
22. Life-Time Power Warranty – whenever magnets lose their power we shall exchange them for new ones free of charge.
23. No service maintenance or expense to operate.
24. It’s easy to install by snapping on water pipes, strapped only by plastic ties (no need to use tools or make any modifications).
25. MAGNETIZER® is a one-time investment for a lifetime of benefits.
The Best Companion For Any Filter or RO System
Magnetizer® is not a filter or RO system in itself, but if used with filters or RO equipment it extends their regeneration cycle i.e. enhances the life of the filter with reduced calcification and fewer dirt particles. It also shortens the time and effort of processing water when passed through the RO membrane due to the lowered water surface tension. It augments the work of filters and the RO systems protecting them for a lifetime.
With Magnetizer® fitted in your filters and RO units, you get fresh and softened water that is free of salt, chemicals, and iron. As a result, you get savings in energy and money, better health notwithstanding.
How Can Magnetizer Help The Reverse Osmosis System, We Have One In Our Home?
We Already Have A Water Softener. Can Magnetizer Help?
How It Works?
When the water molecules pass through the powerful and highly focused magnetic field, they get polarized and carry a positive charge. The structure of the water molecule then changes resulting in softer water with dissolved minerals. It keeps your water-based appliances and plumbing in top-class condition with no more scaling and acid stains.
MAGNETIZER® system works by energizing and organizing clustered and scattered water molecules by treating them with a powerful mono-polar ionic charge that is greater than the one in plumbing or minerals.
Water molecules are thus polarized and get atomized under pressure and further rehydrate the solidified minerals and soften the water by lowering its surface tension. It also stabilizes the pH level and suppresses sulfur and chlorine smell.
There are several other benefits like it dissolves and eliminates the mineral buildup of calcium, magnesium, etc., from pipes and equipment and protects them from scaling, metallic corrosion, etc. Chlorine usage is reduced in swimming pools and MAGNETIZER® inhibits the formation of algae and anaerobic bacteria. You will get a lifetime of benefits with water conditioned in a natural, chemical-free, and salt-free manner which is more oxygenated, healthier, and softer.
MAGNETIZER® technology perfects the entire physical water state and softens the water without any use of chemicals and the slippery feel of water treated with chemicals. Nothing is added or subtracted to water and the minerals remain in the water in suspended forms which are beneficial for the health of people, pets, and plants as people using MAGNETIZER® testify that skin is softer than before due to more hydration and plants are growing faster in homes.

Before & After
The MAGNETIZER® bactericide application is far ahead of what the other devices on the market can offer.
This translates into selecting our technology as the “go-to” solution for improved water quality needs. This appreciation is no surprise to us as we have already sold over ten thousand home water energizer “RWE-S” systems to Japan, not exactly for water softening purposes, as Japanese water is naturally soft, but for bactericide application which home and apartments owners in Japan are sensitive about.
Michael Phelp’s Master Spa in a proprietary configuration—with MAGNETIZER® being an integral part of—is sold in selected markets as a 100% bacteria-free spa with no need for any chemicals.
There are several other instances in which bactericide effects have been noticed in cooling towers and water treatment plants.
Cited below is a testimonial from a large pharmaceutical company’s subsidiary in Europe about the usage of MAGNETIZER® technology in medicine production plants to prevent bacteria growth effectively.

Testimonial: about Magnetizer installation in the station of ion softeners on raw water and after anion exchangers.
Introduction: We use a considerable amount of water passing through ion exchangers for production of medicine. In water directed for usage, apart from chemical parameters, a number of bacteria contained in it is very important. Quality requirements demand to maintain the [bacteria] colony amount below 1000. Through the trial, we have come to a conclusion that the mentioned amount can be maintained only if we rinse the pipes after ion exchangers two times weekly with a sub-chloride solution, as well as if we limit the work of ion exchangers to 72 hours (successive regeneration of ion columns also annihilates bacteria). During rinsing the work of those columns is stopped for 1.5-2 hours, whereas such a downtime creates production problems.
Changes occurring after Magnetizer installation: on 11.22.2001 several rings of Magnetizer, pieces were installed in two places in the sector of production of water softened by ion exchangers according to directions of the company Mundimex Magyarorszag Kft. Upon trials, we were looking for the best place to work for Magnetizers.
Due to complicated character of the system after the third trial, we succeeded to find it. The advantage of this device is without a doubt that it can be installed without the necessity to modify the installation, only through snapping to the outside of the pipe.
Before the installation and subsequently after it, we carefully measured daily the amount of growth of bacteria colony. The results confirmed expectations – there was the reduction by 80-90% of bacteria colonies.
We also lowered by half and subsequently totally eliminated the amount of sub-chloride used to disinfect installations. Despite this, we still have been able to maintain the biological cleanliness of the water. After tallying results at the end of February 2002 we purchased these devices and since that time we are continuously using them.

Magnetizer vs. Traditional Water Softening Methods
MAGNETIZER® is far more beneficial than the traditional methods of softening water as they are chemical based, salt or power using, whereas MAGNETIZER® is an ecologically sustainable, monopolar, natural, healthy, and organic method of softening water. Comparative differences between the traditional chemical, ionic exchange/salt-based, and RO water softening methods vs. the Magnetizer’s ecologically sustainable, natural, magnetic, mono-polar way are presented in the table below.
|Chemical||Ion Exchange||Reverse Osmosis or Ultrafiltrations||The Magnetizer Technology|
|Chemical additives are used to control pH, thermal capacity, corrosion, etc. They are expensive||Salt based water softeners utilize the ionic exchange of the Sodium in salt (NaCl) for the Calcium (CaCO3), or other mineral, in the water (NaCl + CaCO3 = CaCl + NaCO3).||Involves forcing untreated water through a membrane that selectively filters certain constituents out off the fluid.||Nothing is added to the fluid - it works by rearranging the molecules already present in the fluid and additives are unnecessary.|
|System requires constant monitoring & maintenance to assure proper conditioning.||While soft water is produced, a considerable expense is incurred (price of softener, salt supplies, replacement of the ionized bed, the softener's average life of 7 years, health risks).||The system requires very high pressure because the membrane used as the filter medium is essentially non-porous.||No power required - permanent magnets supply "free" effective energy. No power supplies to burn out.|
|Chemicals may be hazardous to employees or environment whenever processes fluids are flushed /spilled.||Sodium must be added to the water in place of the mineral that is removed ("salt-ion exchange").|
The mineral deposits slowly damage the system.
|In areas that have high mineral or salt content, the membranes must be flushed frequently (and replaced often).||No continuing maintenance required after the installation and no recharging or further attention is needed following the initial techniques and/or the Stabilization Period.|
|May incur unwanted pressure drop increasing energy requirements.||The sodium released into the softened water is corrosive (the corrosion due to scale has been replaced with corrosion due to sodium - an undesirable trade-off).|
Health & environmental hazard due to hypertensive effect of sodium on human body (the delicate electrolytic balance of sodium/potassium ions is unsettled) and danger of sodium toxification to the area ground water (in increasing areas the communities, doctors, hospitals and rest homes prohibit salt-ion exchange systems).
|This always requires downtime and a major usage (loss) of water. R/O units typically waste half of the processed water.||A "snap-on" design, unlike the other solutions that are "inline" and become part of the system is removable (and portable) allowing risk free testing & installation.|
*Magnetizer® tests have shown a 90% reduction of SAR (Sodium Adsorption Ratio) in saline water (click).
Selection Of The Proper Magnetizer Water System For Your Home
The efficacy of Magnetizer® “RWE-S” is calculated in accordance with the size of a house and the hardness present in water. A bigger house with extremely hard water conditions requires the installation of extra units mounted at a distance of 1 inch from each other.
Below is the rule of thumb for the proper selection of the Magnetizer® systems:
If a home is < 2,500 sq. ft. (<230 m2) then 1 unit of RWE-S is required.
This means that there are two rings required for cold water inlet and hot water outlet of heater/boiler.
If a home is 2,500-5,000 sq. ft. (230-460 m2) then there is the requirement of 1 unit of RWE-S + 1 unit of RWE-1.
It requires a total of three rings in which 2 rings are placed 1 inch apart on the cold water inlet and one on the hot water outlet of the heater or boiler.
If a home is > 5,000 sq. ft. (>460 m2) then 2 units of RWE-S are required.
This means a total of four rings: two rings placed 1 inch apart on the cold water inlet and two rings placed 1 inch apart on the hot water outlet.
If your home is located in a hard water area that has a hardness of >10 grains ppm then you require double RWE quantity to attain the effective outcomes.
How To Install Magnetizer
Flushing Requirement & The Stabilization Period
Stabilization is the procedure of eradicating all the deposits and lime-scale from inside of your water pipes, appliances, and other fixtures. When Magnetizer® “RWE-S” water conditioner is installed in your home, then it is a must to open all your taps whether hot or cold in showers, bathtubs, sinks or toilets for around 10-15 minutes once in a week for three weeks. Your stabilization period will be accelerated by this flushing procedure and you will get lifetime advantages of having naturally conditioned soft water that will be permanent. In addition, your water heater needs to be flushed by opening the valve at the bottom to allow the water to run until it’s clear. This is required to be done at an interval of two to three weeks until the water running out is completely clear. In case your water heater is less than a year old then flushing is not necessary. You can contact your local plumber about any queries regarding flushing of water.
Stabilization Period enables you to enjoy the lifetime benefits of permanent, naturally conditioned, softer water quicker. During the flushing cycle, some sediment may be deposited in the bathtub. It may vary from every place, from instant one which is five to ten minutes after the “RWE-S” placement to two weeks which can even extend to thirty days. In industries, stabilization can take up to three months.
Frequently Asked Questions
The answers provided in this section may help in your decision making process. Our intention has been to raise your awareness about Magnetizer. If a time comes that you decide to make this one time investment, Magnetizer will start immediately working for you 24/7 for the lifetime of your property, equipment or vehicle.
WE ALREADY HAVE A WATER SOFTENER. CAN MAGNETIZER HELP?
Definitely, the Magnetizer® will help as the surface tension of water is reduced and when something will be added to the magnetized fluid, it will mix and dissolve more promptly. If you already have a water softener installed the magnetized water enhances the efficiency of this softener by augmenting the net ion charge and therefore a better chemical reaction takes place in the normal exchange of ions. With the increase in efficiency, your water softening system will require less salt with Magnetizer® as it is known to reduce the consumption of salt by more than 50 percent. However, the softener is not essential with Magnetizer® as one of our distributors got softeners removed in Hotel’s coffee machines by Magnetizer® “RWE-S” system. With this change, the customers complimented the management about how they served the best coffee in town. Kindly scroll down for Water Test Data here for additional information.
|ASTB/CRIPPEN LABORATORIES, INC., New Castle, DE|
|The Magnetizer system was attached to a breaker that contained magnesium and calcium in water solutions. It was determined by the authorities at ASTB labs that the ion X-changer and filter removed around 90 percent of magnesium and calcium. The Magnetizer unit provided 99 percent removal efficiency of the magnesium and calcium dissolved in water.|
HOW CAN A MAGNETIZER HELP THE REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM, WE HAVE ONE IN OUR HOME?
The Reverse Osmosis system or the RO is a system that provides ultra-filtration, which is why the water with high mineral content clogs the membrane with crystals of mineral. However, magnetized water prevents the formation of crystals so placing the Magnetizer® system on the feed of the Reverse Osmosis unit will prevent the clogging of the filtration membrane and this will eventually reduce the time wasted in flushing the clogged membrane of the filter. Additionally, the advantages of treating water with Magnetizer® are dual as it reduces carbonate pore structure buildup and reduces the number of water clusters present in a non-chemical group of water molecules. With the reduction in the number of water molecules in the cluster is a considerable reduction in surface tension of water from 71 dynes per sq. cm. to 62 dynes per sq. cm. With a reduction in the surface tension of water, less effort required is required to thrust the water molecule through the membrane of the filter leading to energy efficiency. Mundistore has a Magnetizer® “TUBS” system that has been bought by thousands of homes in the United States who purchase water purification tanks ranging from $2 to $3K like filtration steel tank systems, decontamination tanks, RO filter tanks, etc. Magnetizer TUBES are a vital companion to your filters that treat water naturally in a chemically free manner and condition it to protect your expensive filtration units by fighting against lime-scale, metal pitting, corrosion and bacteria.
WHAT DOES A MAGNETIZER DO?
Magnetizer reduces the surface tension of water and makes hard water behave like soft one. With its usage, you will get cleaner laundry, dishes, cars, etc. With the reduced surface tension you will get a better effect in rinsing that reduces spotting on drying. This patented hard softener restricts lime-scale deposits and corrosion by magnetic treatment and hard minerals are suspended in water throughout the water lines of your home. The conditioned and magnetized water is safe and healthier for plants, lawns, and gardens as it enhances their growth with additional minerals reduces the usage of fertilizers and conserves water.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Molecules in water are chaotic, randomly, and naturally placed along with minerals that form scaling. When these molecules enter the magnetic field they are placed haphazardly, but when they pass through the field, they get charged and realigned. This field is greater in charge as compared to that of minerals and plumbing which reduces the surface tension and creates a soft water effect. Magnetizer® causes a unique and patented non-linear polarization which affects the water instantly unlike other magnetic systems. This is the key constituent of our success with proven outcomes.
WHAT MAKES THE MAGNETIZER SYSTEM UNIQUE?
Magnetizer® system is unique because it uses a monopolar technique, which is patented and guarantees best results while the strength of the magnets is subordinate (click here for visual confirmation). It consists of the best ceramic alloy magnetic piles that have been fabricated originally by NASA and have a unique design that is formulated to center all the magnetic energy on the pipes and the fluid. Some basic principles are vital in creating the efficacious design and solicitation of the magnetic treatment of water.
1. Uniform Exit Pole Imprinting due to monopolar treatment.
2. The configuration of magnets yielding the required strength of the magnetic field (flux power).
3. Properly focused energy field and the right polarity.
4. Larger Surface Contact Zone (Contact Time) of the applied magnetic field when compared with other bi-polar magnetic systems.
5. The ideal location system placement—the installation know-how—to account for turbulence, the distance of travel, pipe composition, flow rate, mineral composition, temperature, etc.
HOW CAN YOU TELL THE MAGNETIZER IS WORKING?
- Aerators on faucets will not clog
- Keeps deposits from forming on dishwasher and toilets
- Chlorine smell will be decreased – the chlorine stays in solution longer – people who are strongly affected by chlorine smell are no longer affected after installing Magnetizer
- Balances pH to 7
- Water may taste better because of a change in pH
- Algae that traditionally build in hot water tank and back of the toilet is eliminated. Even fish tanks will stay cleaner longer (make sure your water is filtered if using for a fish tank).
- There will be more sodding and less soap, detergents, and shampoo that needs to be used
- The hot water tank will last longer, plumbing, dishwasher, etc., will last longer
- Excellent for gardens – shortens crop cycle so garden yields more in less time
- Makes your hair shiny
- Lower surface tension – means it penetrates clothing better and releases stains more effectively
DOES IT WORK ON ANY TYPE OF PIPE?
It works on most PVC or PEX pipes and copper. It does not work out of the box on braided stainless steel/galvanized steel pipes. There is a special setup needed, which needs to be applied. Call for details.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
This product is an investment that lasts a lifetime. You will enjoy its power and service for many, many years as there will be no need for replacement and hence you save a lot.
WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED “STABILIZATION PERIOD”?
Stabilization is the process of removing all the existing scale from inside of water pipes, fixtures, and appliances. It is required that after installing the Magnetizer® home “RWE” System, you open all your taps (hot & cold) at all sinks, showers, and bathtubs while flushing the toilets for a period of 10-15 minutes once a week for the first three weeks. This flushing technique will accelerate the Stabilization Period enabling you to enjoy the lifetime benefits of permanent, naturally conditioned, softer water quicker. During the flushing cycle, some sediment may be deposited in the bathtub.
The stabilization Period in homes may vary, from immediate (5-10 minutes after opening taps upon Magnetizer® installation) to two weeks and even thirty days. In industrial applications, this can take up to three months.
In the engine fuel-air-coolant treatment by Magnetizer®, the Stabilization Period is the amount of time it takes to dissolve the carbon/varnish build-up and magnetically saturate all the steel parts between fuel units and the combustion chamber. It is factory-recommended time allowed to saturate metal parts magnetically, clean the internal parts of carbon varnish, allowing the engine to show greater than the normal amplitude of savings. The economy may initially fluctuate as the carbon and varnish are naturally eliminated during the Stabilization Period. After stabilization, the engine will run smoother and start easier. The Stabilization Period lasts approximately 30 days or 1,600 miles. The economy/performance will increase over that period resulting in higher efficiency. In gasoline engines, the Magnetizer® Engine Fuel Saving Systems provide engines with “HIGH-TEST” performance while using Lower Octane Gas, thereby creating even greater savings.
WHAT KIND OF MAINTENANCE DOES IT REQUIRE?
The USP of this product is that it does not require any maintenance. It contains ceramic permanent magnets originally engineered by NASA, that do not lose their power or degrade with time. Hence, we give you a lifetime guarantee of this product and if there arises any need for replacement, we should replace them for free if they lose power in normal working conditions.
IS MAGNETIZER DIFFICULT TO INSTALL?
Magnetizer® is an easy-peasy process. It requires no tools and can be as easy as tying a shoelace. Also, the best part about it is, it is portable.
DOES MAGNETIZER SOFTEN WATER?
Softening mainly refers to replacing the most essential minerals in the water with sodium (which doctors warn can be harmful to health), replacing those minerals by using special filters. These two methods can be problematic as they cause pollution, health risks and most importantly wastage of water. Magnetizer has its own distinct and non-chemical way of softening water. With the reduced surface tension of water after magnetization (same metric you will find with chemical softeners), Magnetizer® creates soft water behavior. The difference between soft water and hard water is crystallization, which causes scaling in hard water. When Magnetizer is used to convert the water, the nucleating effect of scaling (crystallization) is reversed. This leads to lower surface tension (a characteristic of chemically soft water), as well as that of Magnetizer®. Magnetizer softens water (shows lowered dynes per sq. inch), just like its chemical counterparts. See more on this subject here.
WILL IT REMOVE MINERALS FROM THE WATER?
There are no minerals removed while using Magnetizer which is what makes it healthy for people, plants, and animals. By keeping the minerals in the solution, the magnetic scale control systems will not let the minerals accumulate in plumbing systems and at heat change locations. Limescale develops when the minerals in hard water precipitate out of solution as the water is heated and form hard crystals called Calcite. When water is passed through a properly designed and applied magnetic field, the physical nature of water and calcium molecules change, to formless dense crystals called Aragonite. Since this carbonate mineral is very light, it remains suspended in the water flow until it passes out of the plumbing system. This prevents new scale formation and removes the existing scale over time. In closed systems (industrial boilers) the Aragonite slush descaled by Magnetizer® has to be physically removed from the equipment.
WILL MAGNETIZER AFFECT THE PH OF A FLUID?
Magnetizer affects the PH of fluid in the way you want it to, which means it stabilizes the PH. Magnetic influence results in making fluids configured and ionized such that the H+ and OH- ions move towards parity forcibly. This happens as they are placed in close physical proximity to other molecules that are able to accept these ions into their structures. The neutralization process is what it works on. Converting the acidic fluid into alkaline and alkaline into acidic by accelerating the general iconic content, is what is termed as neutralization. Additionally, this unique ionic activity buffers the pH, actually reducing the wide variations found in fluids.
CAN IT REDUCE CORROSION?
Yes. And this happens in two distinct ways.
1. Magnetic influence neutralizes and buffers the liquid.
2. Dissimilar metals create electrical charges that alter equipment surfaces.
Magnetizer® water softener eliminates scale formation and hence any scale-related electrolytic corrosion. This type of corrosion is caused by the adherence and subsequent electrochemical reaction, of scale to a surface. To alter the structure of the scale-forming minerals, these magnets magnetize any liquid which flows past them disrupting their natural bond. This disruption leads to an alteration in the structure. The contaminants (such as calcium carbonate) remain suspended in water until it flows out through your plumbing system, hence reducing corrosion.
CAN MAGNETIZER SYSTEMS HAVE A BENEFICIAL EFFECT ON PROCESS FLUIDS THAT ARE PRESENTLY CONDITIONED WITH CHEMICAL ADDITIVES?
With the Magnetizer process fluids mix more readily with conditioners because of their low surface tension. They tend to exhibit more wet behavior and this uniform bonding improves the mixture. This utilizes chemicals more effectively. Briefly, the magnetic influence increases the fluid’s affinity for the conditioner – reducing the conditioner’s normal precipitation from the fluid and, as a result, the same conditioner works longer and as a result, is less expensive.
CAN ANYTHING ADVERSELY AFFECT MAGNETIZED FLUID?
A negative impact on magnetized fluid can be caused if there is a strong physical disturbance. As the molecules are tied into a rigid configuration forcibly by the magnets if a pump impeller causes any turbulence, the water meter or the disturbance will make the magnetized fluid lose its orientation and qualities. This is what is known as vibrational depolarization. For this reason, we always install our systems after such disturbances; for example, after the water meter on a straight piece of pipe, and on the hot water tank outlet pipe after any elbows. Sometimes we recommend increasing the magnetic boost using additional units mounted side by side. Similarly, magnetized fluids that lie dormant for a long period of time will eventually lose their induced orientation. Water treated by Magnetizer® retains its magnetized state through up to 200 feet of pipe, depending on pipe OD and the systems used. The magnetic effect lasts for up to 48 hours in stored water treated by Magnetizer® magnets. Since most households use their water system regularly, they can be assured of a constant supply of properly conditioned water treated with Magnetizer® magnets.
DOES HEAT AFFECT A MAGNETIZED FLUID?
A magnetized fluid is not affected by heat but interestingly by the process of heating. Currents during the process and physical movements of fluids such as water coming to a boil cause disorientation to the desired magnetic effect. This is the main reason why our systems are installed on the outlet pipe from the water heater and not the inlet pipe.
HOW MAGNETIZER COMPARES TO ELECTROMAGNETS?
Magnetizer® has been scientifically designed to use its strong, focused, unipolar field to penetrate any pipe, PVC / glass included, and not perpendicular to it, on its surface, as electromagnets work with PVC or glass. In general, plastic does not conduct electricity. It has no free electrons. All the electrons are tightly bound to the atoms. That’s why plastic is inert. Although there are conductive plastics (special polymers), PVC is not one of them, and even if it conducts electricity it does not nearly as well as copper. PVC has the addition of plasticizers, of which most widely used being phthalates. In this form, it is not conductive and is used for example for insulation on wires, electrical cables, etc. Also plastic has the potential to collect the static charge on its surface (a possibly hazardous situation). So not only PVC does not conduct electricity, but all the electromagnetic charge travels over the surface, not through the body of the plastic pipe. That’s why at the water technology show in Marseille, France (“Hydrotop”) our distributor has made side-to-side comparisons and electromagnets did not work both on plastic (PVC) and glass pipes, whereas Magnetizer® was performing very well. For more information please click here.
IS THERE ANY SCIENCE BEHIND THE MAGNETIZER?
The roots behind the Magnetizer go way back almost as much as 120 years ago when Michael Faraday (click here) discovered that a weak charge is generated even when water flows past a conductive material. This study of dynamics of electrically conducting fluids is called Magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD). MHD is a physical water treatment using advanced magnetic technology for neutralizing the limescale caused by Calcium Carbonate in hard water. This theory is the basis that we use today when treating water and other fluids with magnetism. Magnetizer has this science behind it and this is the principle on which it works. More explanation and complexities of MHD can be explored on Wikipedia.
