Vulcan is the salt-free alternative to water softeners. Vulcan is an eco-friendly water treatment system that protects your piping system and appliances against scale deposits and rust - no use of any salt or chemicals. The Vulcan reference book shows a selection of installations and studies of the Vulcan water treatment.

Experimental demonstration of function: The effect was verified in a heat exchanger arrangement using two identical testing units. Water was withdrawn from the water pipes simultaneously upstream and downstream of the device to be tested and calcium precipitation forced in the heat echangers. As lime deposits increase, the flow of water decreases. The more water flows through the experimental arrangement, the smaller tendency there if for the water to form scale on pipes and container walls. The test was carried out on the basis of the practice-related water withdrawal of a four-person household with the additional regular withdrawal of five litres of water at half hourly intervals for a total of six weeks. This test showed that the tendency to form lime deposits is reduced considerably by the “Vulcan 5000” water-treatment device. In addition, the effect continues for some days after “Vulcan 5000” has been switched off. Seemingly, the effect is not only limited to a certain part of the pipe, but also passed into the water flowing nearby sections of the pipe.
