Pugh Micromet® Scale Reducer

PRINCIPLE:

According to the region where we stay, the distribution or well water contain different concentrations of mineral substances causing scale.
The presence of scale in water does not affect health. However, a too high concentration (hardness) can result in obstructed pipes and the deterioration of household appliances and sanitary installations.

The Pugh Micromet scale reducer doses a small quantity of food phosphate into the cold water supply without modifying its calcium and magnesium content. Unlike a water softener, a Pugh Micromet device has no impact on the hardness of your water.

Way of working

This active ingredient in the scale reducer works as a crystallisation or corrosion inhibitor. The content of phosphate left in the water is negligible in comparison with the concentration in daily food preparations.
After treatment by the scale reducer, the water can be heated up to 85°C without causing formation of hard scale.
A sludge may form beyond 85°C but has no adhesion and can be easily eliminated.

Benefits

  • This process has no influence on taste or odour of the water.
  • Efficient against scale, ferrous water or corrosion.
  • Less scale decreases the energy consumption and saves, of course, money.
  • No extra water en electricity consumption.

Pugh Micromet® Cartridge

The active ingredient is a food polyphosphate, dissolving very slowly in the water.
This process does not modify the calcium and magnesium content.
The treated water has no influence on its taste or odour.

The action of the crystals prevents scale formation, protects against corrosion and eliminates the problems caused by ferrous water.

Our cartridges are available in 2 sizes (Type 30 and Type 70/150/150B) and need to replaced every six months to guarantee the full efficiency of the Pugh Micromet® devices.
