TWT Patented Deposit ControlTechnologically Advanced Method for Water & Fluid Management Providing Comprehensive End-To-End Treatment & Conditioning (chemical-free)

TWT Patented Deposit Control System
The basic component in the TWT systems is the deposit controller. It is comprised of a microprocessor, solenoid coil wrap and/or a reaction chamber. The microprocessor is a patented controller that functions like a small computer to relay a continuous electrical power supply to the solenoid coil and/or reaction chamber. The reaction chamber is plumbed into the main water in-take line and/or just b e f o re each piece of vital processing equipment, and provides a factory-wrapped wire coil forming a solenoid. The solenoid conveys the triangular wave signal at the appropriate power level (as allowed by the model chosen) to the water passing through the chamber. This signal constantly changes the polarity, freq u e n c y, and amplitude of the current entering the water. This triangular w ave tre a tment produces several benefits. It increases the capability of the water to hydrate scale ions and other colloidal particles. In effect, the surface charge of the hyd rogen molecules is enhanced and the water is made wetter. T h i s h yd r a t e d water can dissolve unwanted particles, s u s p e n d them in solution, and a l l ow them to be easily fi l t e red out or flushed from the system. Ac c o rd i n g l y, the mineral and biological particles that cause scale, deposits, and corrosion are d i s s o l ved and washed away. This means that the breeding environments for bacteria, such as bio-film and corrosion, are eliminated. The agitation created in the reaction chamber also disrupts the conditions essential for the normal reproduction of bacteria and they die, thus allowing them to be harmlessly flushed out of the sy s t e m .

TWT Reaction Chamber:
The TWT Reaction Chamber is part of the patented TWT Deposit Control Technology,the function of which is to control scale and bio-film in the plumbing infrastructure, fixtures, and water-fed appliances found in the facility being treated. The Reaction Chamber provides a chamber through which the water flows and is exposed to the triangular wave signal that lies at the heart of the deposit control technology. As the fluid passes through, it is treated and then carries that treatment downstream, to condition the rest of the plumbing system, non-chemically and reliably. To use in conjunction with the TWT Deposit Control Systems when required, Triangular Wave Technologies, Inc. has developed a line of factory-wrapped wire Reaction Chambers to address magnetic pipe environments. Typically, wire coil cannot be installed on any magnetic pipe, such as steel, galvanized steel, ductile iron, or cast iron. If a coil is applied to such a pipe, the pipe becomes a shield and prevents the wave energy from entering the fluid path. The TWT Reaction Chambers solve this problem by providing an easily installed section of non-magnetic pipe to provide the proper pipe material for the Deposit Control System to work as designed. The TWT Reaction Chambers are fully sealed, protecting their two layers of factory-wrapped coil. The PVC, Stainless St e e l and the Industrial Reaction Chamber systems are designed and manufactured to meet the highest quality specifications.

Copper Pipe Signal Enhancer:
Copper pipes, although acceptable, are one of the more difficult of materials to work with. To overcome this...
TWT has developed its Copper Pipe Signal Enhancer. This unit is placed between the Deposit Controller and the solenoid coil on the copper pipe. The function of the signal enhancer is to provide a proper impedance match and to ensure maximum energy transfer between the controller and the solenoid, which, in turn, ensures enhanced treatment of the fluid. Magnetic pipe materials such as steel, galvanized steel, iron, ductile iron or cast iron become shields and prevent the proper energy transfer to the fluid path. For magnetic pipe applications we offer a full line of factory wrapped wire coil Reaction Chambers. TWT products are designed to provide comprehensive solutions to water and fluid management problems. The Copper Pipe Signal En h a n c e r and its equivalent for the magnetic pipe environment, TWT Reaction Chambers, offer the answer to limited signal penetration, ensuring optimal results. The copper signal enhancer is a passive signal / impedance matching circuit. This device provides a power boost to the conditioning signal in copper pipes. Special Note: Copper pipe signal enhancers are to be used on copper pipes only.

Ionizationfor bacteria, algae, fungus control in Pools, Spas, HVAC
IonGuard Purification System:
The IonGuard Purification System is an electrolytic copper /silver ion generator. The system units contain specially cast copper/silver alloy electrodes. These electrodes are mounted in a housing designed for easy access ( HVAC & Pool Environments). The IonGuard Purification System purifies water through a p rocess called ionization. This process utilizes a low voltage direct current [DC] to place precise and minute amounts of copper and silver ions into water systems. Copper ions kill algae and silver ions kill bacteria (integrate with TWT deposit control technology for enhanced results).

Ultraviolet Disinfection/Purificationhigh intensity bacteria control for potable water, waste water, food service, sanitary, pharmaceutical applications and anywhere the need for safe water required.

Ultraviolet Disinfection/Purification Systems:
The UV disinfection technology used in the system to provide safe, potable drinking water, free of disease-causing pathogens. As water passes through the UV ch a m b e r, UV light will attack and render harmless any bacterial, viral or spore contamination p resent in the treated water. High intensity UV light destroys these contaminats with a 99.9% kill rate The output water is thus disinfected and offers exceptionally high quality for human consumption.

Ozone Disinfection
The Ozonator is a natural, safe way to purify water in many different applications. It eliminates the need for chemicals which can be irritating to people and costly to budget. The Ozonator converts Oxygen (O2 ) into (O3) by the action of the corona discharge system. Ozone is then injected into the water where it destroys viruses, bacteria and many other microorganisms. taste, odor and color disappear and iron oxide, hydrogen sulphide, lignite and tannin are precipitated out, leaving your water pure and clean.

Filtration SystemsCommercial Industrial Residential
Filters are designed to trap various kinds of debris, dirt and organic particles that will otherwise enter your equipment and/or plumbing system, restrict your water flow and create a breeding ground for bacteria. Filtration is the first line of defense for residential, commercial, industrial facilities, where the source of water may be ponds, wells, streams or other water sources that have high exposure to contamination from airborne pollutants, surface run-off, agricultural or industrial waste or similar dangers. The first step in achieving clean water is to install a filtration device that effectively removes particulate matter and similar debris. Filtration is an important step in water treatment, especially for water intended for human consumption. Filtration systems provide a bacteriostatic environment and are designed to remove, volatile organic chemicals, hydrogen sulfide and sulfur, herbicides, pesticides, chemical fertilizer residues, trihalomethanes and many other pollutants.

Chemical-Free Iron Removal Systems -for 12 to 50 ppm iron.
The Rust-Erase iron filter system is designed to effectively eliminate rust from your water supply economically and thoroughly. No more unsightly rust stains in the toilet, tub and sink., the laundry will be cleaner, too! The Rust-Erase Iron Filter works automatically. Every drop of water coming through the line is filtered to remove rust and other particles. The pre-set timer periodically activates the back-wash mechanism which keeps the filter medium fresh and effective for many years. Media is good for approximately 3 - 5 years or more depending on water conditions.

Effects of iron and manganese in water When exposed to air, dissolved iron or manganese reacts with oxygen and is converted by oxidation to a colored, solid material that settles out of the water. Iron changes to white, then yellow and finally to a reddish-brown color. Manganese forms a black residue. High concentrations of these sediments cause reddish-brown or black stains on laundry and facility fixtures. Another result of iron and manganese in water is the presence of harmless bacteria in soil, shallow groundwater supplies and some surface water that secrete large amounts of red-brown (iron) or black-brown (manganese) slime that stain toilet tanks.

HydroBlend Combined with TWT An Enhanced Hot Water Solution
HydroBlend is a unique composition blended to exhibit enhanced lime-scale (calcium carbonate) prevention and corrosion control. Combined with Triangular Wave Technology it is superior in the treatment of scaling caused by hard water minerals. Plus it helps to control staining caused by the precipitation of iron and manganese. The most important advantage in using HydroBlend with TWT is that HydroBlend is not affected by high t e m p e r a t u res, retaining its full ability end-to-end. This provides the greatest amount of scale prevention available.

TWT Operating Principals:

The TWT System utilizes a principal of molecular agitation to neutralize the dissolved calcium that causes hardness and lime scaling. Molecular agitation uses resonant energy forces, which develop on charged particles moving through an electrical impulse induction field, to change the molecular surface energy states of dissolved minerals.

Dissolved mineral surface energy states, a quantum function, determine the subsequent precipitated crystalline structures created. In this case, the doubly positive ionic calcium is treated so that neutral aragonite crystal instead of lime-scale crystal precipitation results.

The signal from the TWT system circuitry flows to a solenoid coil (reaction chamber) wound around the pipe being treated. This coil develops the frequency modulated electrical impulse induction field that immediately neutralizes the hardness, or functionally softens the water. The field penetrates the piping to its center, with the modulation component acting on the passing water and dissolved mineral molecules.

TWT The Competitive Edge

How TWT Deposit Controller and Reaction Chamber System Work:

Using modern integrated circuitry and signal processing techniques, the patented TWT Deposit Control Technology works by producing a complex frequency-modulated waveform. This creates a deionizing effect, induced by physical means, which increases the solubility of the minerals, and colloids in the liquid and changes the shape, size and texture of the calcium carbonate crystals. By this reaction, the minerals, colloids and crystals lose their adhesive properties and remain in suspension in the liquid. Pre-existing scale is taken back into solution and removed in the same way. The effects are immediate and long lasting downstream.

Hard water is the most commonly reported water quality problem by consumers in the U.S., found in over 85 percent of the country. Over 60% of the earths water is groundwater, which picks up minerals, rocks and soil, including calcium and magnesium contaminants that make water hard.

Some telltale signs that water may be hard:

  • Clogged pipes and/or appliances may be due to hard water.
  • Mineral deposits can form in coffee makers, shower drains, pipes and plumbing equipment.
  • Consumers may notice a film build-up on shower tiles, bathtubs, or even themselves, which can cause dry skin and dull, limp hair.
  • Heating bills are increased, because the hard water forms an insulated shell between the heating element and the water to be heated. Heated hard water causes scale.

The Triangular wave System represents a significant breakthrough in electromagnetic technology. The triangular wave has made possible the use of electromagnetic technology in applications of all sizes, from residential to large commercial and industrial applications. An advanced system for controlling scale and bio-fouling, it is applicable with once-through and recirculating HVAC, heating and process cooling systems, as well as agricultural, industrial processing, wastewater, and other fluid-based systems.

The electronic deposit control technology uses a signal coil wrapped around a pipe in the plumbing system being treated. The signal coil produces an extremely small time-varying magnetic field inside the pipe, the resulting induced, oscillating electric field provides the necessary molecular agitation for chemical-free scale prevention and removal.

This state-of-the art electronic deposit controller provides continual scale and bio-film control in fluid systems resulting in reduced maintenance and more efficient operation. The Triangular Wave System utilizes unique and proprietary treatment and designprocesses.

  • Polarity changes from positive to negative many thousands of times per second.
  • Frequency varies, the range of frequencies is wide enough to affect the water and the materials in the water.
  • Amplitude varies, this means that the water molecules and the materials in the water are being subjected to a wide range of field forces.
The entire Triangular Wave Signal is repeated 30 times each second. When the current reaches the solenoid, a constantly changing electro-magnetic field is formed. That field induces a constantly changing voltage in the fluid. This process ensures proper fluid treatment results and increased operational efficiency. The Triangular Wave Deposit Control System uses a Current Source as the drive circuit to the pipe solenoid. A Current Source is the most reliable and strongest conditioning signal over a wide frequency range. Most waters have qualities that vary over time. Higher total dissolved solid concentration will cause greater impedance in the system. The TWT system, with a Current Source generator is able to sense the increased impedance and maintain the strong conditioning.
  • One time cost vs. recurring monthly chemicals= better profit margin
  • Labor costs for maintaining the systems will be reduced
  • Costs to replace corroded parts like heat exchanger tube bundles, etc. will be reduced.
  • Less downtime for equipment repairs and maintenance = increased production
  • Increased heat transfer from non-scaled tube surfaces=significant energy savings

When the TWT systems are properly installed the effects of the Triangularwave Technology treatment last downstream enhancing water quality, and improve operating efficiency and life cycle of equipment. Triangularwave Technologies systems use technologically advanced methods to restore and maintain a clean, corrosion - free delivery system in an environmentally safe and chemical - free manner... The result is clean pipes, tubing and equipment with no bio-film and reduced bacterial contamination.

The build-up of scale deposits is a common and costly industrial problem. The higher costs of maintaining and cleaning fluid-fed equipment can be attributed to the continuous cleaning of scaled surfaces or to the increased energy and operating costs due to the poor conductivity of the fluid pipe. For example, with every 1/4" of scale, 40% more energy will be needed to heat the water.

Moreover, scale deposits narrow the inner diameter of piping, increasing the amount of energy required to pump the water through the system.
