MAGNETIC LIMESCALE PREVENTING DEVICES


INTRODUCTION AND OPERATING MANUAL

This manual contains information about Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing devices, their as-
sembly and usage rules.

In order to benefit from devices effectively, the assembly and usage rules are have to be obeyed.

1) Definition
Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices function changing the crystal structure of lime (calcium
carbonate) in the water with helping the magnetic field produced by the magnets inside the de-
vice.

Calcite crystal of lime (calcium carbonate) sticks on the internal wall of devices and installations.

The calcite crystals are changed to the aragonite crystal that is carrying with water, soft and also
noncohesive by Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices . Therefore, it prevents lime in the
installation and devices.

2) FEATURES

2.1) General Features


Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices are manufactured with flanged (from 2to 40)
and with screwed (from 1/2to 1 1/2)

Akua have 8 types of geared screwed devices,, 1/2, 3/4S, 3/4K, 3/4B, 3/4Y, 1, 1 1/4 and 1
1/2 and also have 22 types of flanged devices from 2 to 40

All of the Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices are manufactured by using AISI304 qual-
ity Stainless steel body and fixing component and also covered with the polyethylene sheath.

Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices can be operated in four different temperature val-
ues, 90C, 180C, 250C and 800C

Depends on the usage temperature of devices, different types of magnet used. Magnets are manu-
factured from the allays of, neodyum iron boron (NdFeB) or samarium Cobalt (SmCo) or Alu-
minum Nickel Cobalt (AlNiCo) that have 14.000 to 14.500 Gauss magnetic flux density. All the
magnets outer surface is covered with zinc, nickel or epoxide.

3) General Rules
Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices are manufactured with flanged (from 2to 40)
and with screwed (from 1/2to 1 1/2)

Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices can be assembled in any direction (water inlet/
output) and position (horizontal/vertical). Besides this, due to 1/2, 3/4S, 3/4K and 3/4B devices
have male and female screw thread. female screwed side should be installed faced to water inlet;
male screwed side faced to water outlet.

Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices are manufactured to connect pipes which have
only the same nominal diameters with devices. If necessary, devices can be connected with one
below or one above diameter pipe by using reduction components. In this situation, you have to
be discussed with Akua Foreign Trade Limited Company about montages because The Company
isnt responsible for low performance that occurs from wrong montage.

Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices release without any accessories (sleeve coupling,
clamping sleeve, nipple, gasket, contrary flange, etc.) on it. Such kind of assembly components
have to supply by user. Assembly of device is in users responsibility.

It is necessary that Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices are assembled to a proper point
to pipe. Detailed information about assembly of the devices is given next chapters. Paying atten-
tion to information in these chapters is important.

During the assembly of devices, the users shouldnt use overpower. If devices screw thread, flange
has damage or in any other reason occurs due to overpower is evaluated as outside the scope of
warranty.

Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices are work efficiently till the temperature shown on
the devices. If the temperature of the water higher than the temperature shown on the device, ef-
ficiency of the device start to drop.

Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices must be assembled to pipes which have no valves,
corners, water meter, etc. on it near the device for 20 cm. In brief, There should be a straight part of
pipe length of which is minimum 20 cm before and after the device assembled.

Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices transfers the magnetic effect to the minerals within the
water due to fact that water is conductive. In this respect, the magnetic effect will always occur as
long as water flows in it. When the flow of water is cutten, magnetic effect will conserve itself for
approximately 24 hours. Whenever flow is started again, magnetic field occurs again and lime is
solved.

Devices that assembled to buildings inlet waterline protects open water circuits like sinks, toilets,
baths etc. But for the closed water circuits like heaters, boilers, and autoclave machines etc. anoth-
er device should be assembled. Because water is periodically transferred to depots or containers.

Heavy Metals like Ferrous, Cadmium Cobalt, Chromium, etc and Silisium have harmful effects
on the performance of magnetic lime prevention devices. Device can be operated effectively with
water which contains heavy metal and Silisium but before magnetic lime prevention device there
should be a Magnetic Heavy Metal Trap device exists.

Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices work without maintenance or repair.
4) Assembly of devices to pipes

4.1) Screwed Devices


Akua Magnetic Lime Scale Preventing Devices are used by connecting devices to pipes. From
this point of, on the pipes that devices will be assembled, the total length of devices and assembly
components must be cut from the
related pipe.

Devices which have 1/2, 3/4K


and 3/4B nominal diameters
have male and female screw
connections, devices which have
3/4Y, 1, 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 nomi-
nal diameters have only male
screw connections.

Assembly of devices which have 1/2, 3/4K and 3/4B nominal diameters are shown in the pic-
ture below. In order to assemble, two units of 3/4 sleeve coupling and one 3/4 nipple must use.

Assembly of devices which have 3/4Y, 1, 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 nominal diameters are shown in the
picture below. In order to assemble, four units of 3/4 sleeve coupling and two units of 3/4 nipple
must use.

Attention: Above the picture there is only one side connection detailed in-
formation given. The connection must be done the same as for the other side!
4.2) Flanged Devices
