Vulcan Benefits for Commercial and Industrial Applications
Managing a building, hotel or business demands constant observation of the technical equipment, sanitary stations, outdoor areas, and much more. 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.
Benefits with Vulcan for the piping system
Reduction of limescale built-up
Vulcan takes away the adhesive power of limescale particles so that limescale is simply washed away with your water as a fine powder. New limescale-formation is prevented.
Vulcan reduces existing limescale deposits
Vulcan dissolves already existing deposits in the piping system. The limescale build-up process is reversed and the pipes become cleaner again. This take-out process will not block up your pipes or drain because the treated crystals are microscopic in size and are washed away with the water.
Protection against corrosion
Metal pipes often has pitting corrosion. The Vulcan impulses generate a metal-carbonate protective layer that prevents pitting corrosion.
Vulcan increases water pressure
Vulcan reduces limescale deposits in the pipes and can even restore a pipe’s full diameter. Water can flow freely again and you regain normal water pressure.
Vulcan reduces rust
In most cases whenever there is limescale you will also find rust shortly thereafter. The rust typically imbeds itself in the limescale. Rust oxides are red, so limescale deposits in metal pipes then often appear red in color too. When the Vulcan-treatment reduces limescale, it also reduces rust with it.
Vulcan reduces bacterial growth
Thick limescale deposits with their uneven surfaces are a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. If the limescale is reduced, there are no more nesting areas where bacteria can grow, so also bacteria is reduced.
Vulcan reduces limescale 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.

Heating systems regain full performance
When water is heated in a hot water tank or a tankless water heater, hard water always leads to thick deposits on the heating elements. This layer 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.
In productions and industrial settings you may need a water softener where there is no tolerance (zero tolerance) for any calcium in the water. Vulcan can improve the performance of the water softener. In a lot of cases you can get rid of your water softener and replace it with Vulcan.
a) Vulcan replaces water softeners
Vulcan is the eco-friendly alternative to a traditional salt-based water softener. 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 water softener system can easily be put out of use by simply bypassing it.
b) Vulcan as an addition to a water softener
If you want to keep the water softener running due to a special reason, you can save a lot 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 limescale build-up in the solar system. It keeps heat exchangers and distributor pipes longer clean. Vulcan reduces limescale build-up in collectors, it protects hot water tanks and vacuum tubes, and keeps the system free from over-heating. There is no more need to circulate acids.
Vulcan Solar Information
Vulcan reduces limescale deposits at cooling towers. Bleed water is no longer toxic and bacterial contamination is reduced. With Vulcan the cooling tower can be operated at higher cycles of limescale concentration which minimizes water usage.

Reverse osmosis filters
When Vulcan is installed before an RO-system it helps in two ways:
1.) The RO 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 forms less clusters and is more homogeneous which makes it easier to pump it into an external tank. The Vulcan treatment 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.
Cleaner and smoother surfaces in the bathroom again on baths, sinks, fixtures, shower heads, etc. You will quickly notice that limescale 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 clean longer. Vulcan treated water can be absorbed and processed better by plants. As there are less limescale 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 older people benefit from the healthy calcium and magnesium content that naturally is found in tap water.
Water tastes and smells better
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 & jacuzzis
Vulcan makes pool cleaning easier: Limescale on the water line is looser and easier to wipe off. Pool covers and tiles on the floor or walls will show less hard limescale 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.
Vulcan for swimming pools
The combination of water, circulating air and pressure in a hot tub tremendously enhances limescale build-up. Vulcan makes the cleaning of the jacuzzy easier. Vulcan reduces deposits in the pipes and valves. Covers and and tiles on the floor or walls will show less hard limescale stains.
Vulcan for jacuzzies
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 limescale particles no longer makes it so frizzy.
