AQUABION corrosion- and limescale protection - maintenance-free - without use of chemicals

Limescale and corrosion are the number one pipe enemies.

You want to avoid limescale or corrosion in your drinking water or cooling water system? Are you looking for an environmentally friendly and cost-effective protection system for your pipelines? Ideally maintenance-free with reliable, well proven function? Then AQUABION is the perfect solution for you. Based on our patented zinc sacrificial anode technology, AQUABION is now used by more than 500,000 users throughout Europe.

The problem - limescale and corrosion

Limescale and corrosion in pipes can cause pipe bursts and pressure drops. The necessary maintenance and cleaning of heat exchangers, pumps or production plants causes time and costs, in extreme cases a new investment is necessary. Furthermore, there are increased energy costs, e.g. for hot water preparation or pumping.

In addition, there are often corrosion and hygiene problems in the line inventory and the connected peripherals.

The use of conventional descaling systems (ion exchangers) and chemical dosing systems to solve these problems is expensive and maintenance intensive.

The solution - AQUABION zinc sacrificial anode technology

With the certified, tested and effective technology there is no limescale and rust anymore.

  • Protection of pipelines, heat exchangers, pumps, etc.
  • Without the use of chemicals, salt, magnets or electricity
  • Protects efficiently against limescale
  • Increases the flow rate
  • Stops inside-corrosion within a few weeks
  • Maintenance-free

This is how AQUABION works

The functioning of the AQUABION is based on the galvanic principle in conjunction with a zinc sacrificial anode. The formation of a galvanic element releases zinc ions in the aquabion, which form seed crystals with dissolved carbon dioxide in the circulating water. Lime accumulates on them, resulting in significantly larger calcium crystals.

Thus, calcites, which are responsible for lime residues in pipelines, become converted into Aragonite. The size and needle-like structure of the Aragonite causes the lime to become neutral to adhesion and it removes already existing limecales and rust. In addition, a passivating protective layer is formed on the inner side of the pipe, which effectively prevents corrosion.

For drinking water quality, an average service life of 6-8 years is assumed, depending on the water quality (pH value, hardness, etc.) and the flow rate. The replacement unit is available at a 50% discount on return of the old unit to Rabmer, which becomes fully recycled.
