The Electronic Anti-Scale System
12 reasons why Vulcan is a good alternative to water softeners
|Vulcan clearly stands out with its quality and performance. Please compare Vulcan as the alternative to softeners by matching some quality indicators:|
|German 24 Volt Impulse-Technology (capacitive): The water is treated with electric impulses that control scale in an eco-friendly “green” way. It is an electric system that is not magnetic-based.|
|Vulcan works on a frequency range between 3-32 kHz with different frequency peaks (wobbling distribution). The secret to the right performance of physical water treatment lies in the composition of these impulses. CWT has developed and fine-tuned them for over 30 years.|
|Vulcan uses customized isolated copper impulse bands. How the impulses are transferred into the water is crucial. The design of the bands increases the surface area that transports the impulses. This improves transmission by up to 40%.|
|The original acrylic cast is unique to the Vulcan product line. It offers maximum protection against water, heat, dirt, coldness, humidity and keeps all parts secure and sealed in place.|
|Vulcan comes with external UL and TÜV-approved electronic switching adaptors. They operate with a very low power consumption of 100-240V and equalize possible power instability.|
|Vulcan is not magnetic-based. Therefore, it operates 100% independent of the velocity (water flow rate) in the pipe and constantly provides reliable impulses that guarantee the right output at all times.|
|Material-matching programs for different materials: Vulcan treats any pipe material. No need to buy a different product for metal, PVC, plastic etc. any more.|
|The automatic memory program keeps Vulcan running correctly. In case of the unlikely event of a power failure Vulcan automatically resets back to the last program once power is regained.|
|Vulcan holds numerous certifications by renowned international institutions: the German TÜV, the German CE, the UL-approval for switching adaptors etc.|
|Vulcan requires very little electrical power as it is very economical. The units operate with 1.75 to max. 3.25 Watt. The running costs are approx. $US 3-7 (~3-6 EUR) per year.|
|Made-in-Germany: Vulcan is a German quality product that has been manufactured by the family-run Christiani Wassertechnik GmbH, Berlin since 1989.|
|10-year international warranty is granted for all Vulcan units. Due to the special acrylic protection these units keep on running with a life expectancy of over 30 years.|

The Vulcan information video
|In this video you will see how the Vulcan technology works and why it is in comparison to water softeners an eco-friendly solution against scale problems.|
Vulcan - The eco-friendly
alternative to softeners
|In Vulcan impulses treat the water as it flows by. It is important to submit the right impulse strength everywhere in the pipe so that all the water is treated correctly. The impulse should neither be too week nor to strong. In order to provide the exact right impulse strength for your pipe, Vulcan comes in several sizes according to the pipe diameter.
How to choose the right product sizePlease check the pipe diameter in the area where you want to install Vulcan.
The maximum water capacity by hour is the amount that a pipe in a certain size can carry in one hour. Most of the times you will not use such high amounts of water. However, in certain peak times, this may be your hourly usage.

The do-it-yourself product
|Vulcan is especially designed so that the installation does not need to be done by a specialized plumber. You can easily install Vulcan in approx. 10-15 minutes. The installation does not require any tools and there is no need to cut the pipe.|
Notes on the installation
All these different installations are possible because the treatment impulses extend over several meters to either
side of the pipes.
Installation instructions for the Private Line
|In comparison to softeners Vulcan don't need any maintenance.|
Installation instructions for Commercial and
|1||Put the two band holders through the fixing holes at the bottom of the electronic device. Now place the device onto the pipe. Use the band holders to latch the device to the pipe.|
|2||Plug one of the impulse bands into the bottom impulse band in-jack and latch it to the pipe using another band holder.|
|3||Wind the impulse bands around the pipe producing a coil. Make sure you wind the band tightly to the pipe and place the windings close to each other.|
|4||Latch the end of the band to the pipe using another band holder. Now plug another impulse band into the in-jack on the opposite side and repeat the procedure.|
|5||Plug another impulse band into the next impulse band in-jack and, according to the device type, repeat steps 2 - 4 until all impulse bands are in use. All impulse bands must be wound tightly around the pipe and fastened with band holders.|
|6||Connect the power supply unit with an electrical outlet and plug the connector into the upper right in-jack of the device.|
|7||Now adjust your Vulcan on the side sensors according to your pipe diameter to optimally treat your water.|
