For years, water softeners have been virtually the only means of treating hard water.
Other alternatives including magnets, electro-
magnets, RF devices and catalysts have been available but few have proven to be effective.
Next ScaleStop™ is not a water softener, but it has all the advantages of a water softener without the disadvantages and the water feels and acts like soft water. The Next ScaleStop™ is more economical and has other benefits that a water softener does not have. Salt softeners have many limitations in commercial and industrial applications which are well recognised and understood. Next ScaleStop™ can provide the protection needed without the restrictions associated with salt softener systems.
- Extremely efficient – 5 seconds contact time regardless of hardness level. Conventional Ion Exchange resin requires 90 seconds.
- No salt or other regenerants required.
- No water waste from backwashing.
- No brine discharge. Can be used in areas where conventional water softeners are banned.
- Long lasting media-not consumed by the reactions.
- Unique “Template Assisted Crystallization” (TAC) technology induces the formation of microscopic calcium crystals which effectively isolate hardness from the water chemistry.
- No control valve or electricity required.
- Media can be used in both conventional mineral tanks or POU cartridge form.
- Media operates in upflow condition.
next-ScaleStop™ has proven itself in a variety of applications as an alternative to ion exchange softening or other conventional water treatment methods. The maintenance-free characteristics make it especially suited for Foodservice and Commercial applications where equipment maintenance is often overlooked. next-ScaleStop™ is a great alternative for residential use, especially in areas with brine discharge restrictions or where brackish water makes it impossible to operate a conventional softener.
