magnetic water treatment

Strong neodymium magnets are often used in Magnetic Water Treatment to prevent or reduce scale formation with hard water. Does this really work? Is it fact or myth? K&J reviews the available information and experiments a bit on this controversial subject.

Hard water has a high mineral content, usually consisting of mostly calcium and magnesium. In fact, the measure of water hardness is expressed in various units that express how much calcium carbonate is in a given volume of water. Units include ppm (parts per million), gpg (grains per gallon), or mg/L (milligrams per liter).

Hard water isnt necessarily bad for you, but it can pose problems with the plumbing in your home. It can form hard deposits of calcium called scale, affecting faucets, shower-heads, dishwashers, and heating elements of water heaters. This can reduce water flow, heating efficiency, and leave spots on dishes. It can also require more soap to get good suds.

Conventional water softeners work with an ion-exchange process, where the calcium and magnesium in the water are replaced by sodium. This technology is proven, works consistently and does make water softer. It does reduce scale in your plumbing. You can find water softeners at your local hardware or home improvement store.

This is one of those topics where a quick search on the Internet provides wildly varying results. There isn't much clear information about magnetic water treatment, and some sites say it doesn't work. There is a great deal of mis-information that seems to either make false claims or appear to be scientifically bogus, further complicating the search.

Magnetic Water Treatment directs water to pass through a strong magnetic field. By placing two strong neodymium magnets on either side of the incoming pipe, all the water passes through a strong, uniform magnetic field.

Magnetic water treatment does not remove any calcium from the water. Technically, it is still just as hard as before it passed through the magnets. It claims to change the structure of the deposits that form, making them tend to be less apt to stick to surfaces.

Perhaps the biggest reason is that the results are hard to measure. With conventional, salt-based water softening, its easy to measure the amount of calcium dissolved in the water. Simply measure the calcium content before and after the treatment. If youve got less calcium in there after treatment, you know its working!

We have read heard a lot of anecdotal evidence about how well magnetic water treatment works. Still, no amount of stories equate to scientific evidence. Some of us here at K&J Magnetics use magnets on our water source at home, some dont. Are there any scientific publications that can help?

If you search for magnetic water treatment, you will quickly find references to work by Klaus Kronenberg, and claims made in Experimental evidence for the effects of magnetic fields on moving water, published in IEEE Transactions on Magnetics in September 1985. Claims include:

Unfortunately, many who refer to his work also make some pretty wild claims, putting the reliability of these results into question. We haven't read his paper, but references online just list his opinion on the matter. Is there a more reputable source on the subject?

The Wikipedia article on Magnetic Water Treatment points to a paper by J.M.D. Coey and Stephen Cass. Magnetic water treatment appeared in the Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials #209 back in 2000.

Professor J. M. D Coey edited an early, important text on rare-earth magnets, Rare-Earth Iron Permanent Magnets. More recently he authored Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, a graduate level textbook about magnetism. Thats a large percentage of the magnet textbooks we own!

They tested MWT by passing water through a magnetic field of 1000 Gauss (0.1 T). The samples were then heated in open beakers, forming scale when the water evaporated. The scale was inspected by X-ray diffraction (which can reveal what its made of) and an electron microscope (to view the structure).

The results confirm earlier claims that there are two different types of calcium deposits made: calcite and aragonite. They are both made of the same stuff (calcium), but form in different structures. The small beads of calcite tend to make hard scale that clings well to surfaces. Aragonite forms in longer shapes which are less prone to form hard scale, and keep moving along with the water. The electron microscope shots are pretty clear!

Did the magnetically treated water form less scale in this test? No, not really. We saw about the same amount of scale. Of course, we were heating open containers, allowing the water to evaporate. This isnt really comparable to whats going on inside a water heater. The interesting result is that the scale in the two samples did seem different in how well it stuck to the aluminum heater.

We ran our finger across the evaporated deposits and didnt get any calcium on our finger with the untreated water. One rub across the magnetically treated water yielded a bunch of white calcium stuck to our finger. Some of the deposited calcium did not stick to the heater quite as well as the untreated water deposits. Does this mean that some of the calcium was less sticky? Sure. Could this be indicative of a higher aragonite percentage? Maybe.

We would like to see a test rig that might simulate a water heater. Run two systems, one with and one without magnetic water treatment. Its a long-term test, but the results would surely be interesting.

The test setup we used had a field strength of just over 3,000 gauss in the water pipe. The paper we referred to said that only a 1,000 gauss field was used. What strength is required? Were not sure, but here is a list of a few suggested sizes arranged by the size of common US pipes.

In each case, a pair of magnets is arranged on either side of the incoming water pipe. They are oriented so that they are attracting towards each other, which makes a strong, uniform field within the pipe. Some means of fastening the magnets is required to hold them in position, preventing them from falling off the pipe or slamming together.

Mechanisms of magnetic field (MF) effects are discussed.The effects are considered to be due to ion mechanism or surface mechanism.MF gradient is more important for the effects than the strength of field itself.Changes in the in the inter- and intra-cluster hydrogen bonds of water occur.Dynamically ordered liquid like oxyanion polymers allow explain the MF effects.

Understanding of magnetic field (MF) effects observed during and after its action on water and aqueous solutions is still a controversial issue although the effects have been reported for at least half of century. The purpose of this paper was a brief review of the literature which deals with the magnetic force treatment effects. However, it is especially focused on the latest approaches, published mostly in the last decade which have developed our understanding of the mechanisms accompanying the field action. Generally, the changes in water structure via hydrogen bonding changes, as well as in intraclusters and between interclusters were taken into account, but the most remarkable progress was achieved in 2012 by Coey who applied the non-classical theory of nucleation mechanism of the formation of dynamically ordered liquid like oxyanion polymers (DOLLOP) to explain the magnetic field action. His criterion for the magnetic field effect to occur was experimentally verified. It was also proved that the gradient of the magnetic field is more important than the magnetic field strength itself. Some interesting approaches explaining an enhanced evaporation rate of water by MF are also discussed. More experimental results are needed for further verification of the DOLLOP theory to achieve a more profound understanding of the MF effects.

A water molecule consists of one oxygen and two hydrogens. Thus: H2O. Simply put, the oxygen act as a negative, while each hydrogen acts as a positive. Water molecules do not travel alone. They form clusters with other water molecules by the attraction of a positive hydrogen of one molecule to the negative oxygen of another. Water molecule clusters come in many sizes, depending on the number of water molecules involved.

In the case of water that has not been magnetically structured, the water molecule clusters are generally comprised of many water molecules that are loosely attracted. This loose and chaotic form of attraction allows for toxins and pollutants to travel inside the water molecule cluster. As these water molecule clusters pass by the cell membrane, many of them are sloughed off because they are too large or because of the toxins contained, which the plant is programmed to reject.The smaller of these chaotic clusters will enter the cell, some carrying toxins with them. It requires a great deal of unstructured water to hydrate a plant.

Magnetic field, when applied to normal water, restructures the water molecules into very small water molecule clusters, each made up of six symmetrically organized molecules. This miniscule cluster is recognized by the cell as "bio-friendly" due to its hexagonal structure and because the toxins cannot travel within the cluster, and easily enters the passageways in plant and animal cell membranes. The result provides maximum, healthy hydration with less water.

Magnetic field further breaks down minerals into smaller particles making them more bio-available to the plant cells. The bottom line results are dramatic: maximum hydration of healthy water with greater uptake of minerals results in greater yields, larger and better end product, earlier maturation, longer shelf life, and healthier plants. It allows a reduction of amount of water needed, fertilizer and pesticides.

Since the magnetic structuring breaks all minerals into smaller particles, salt in the soil is broken down by the structured water, causing it to sink deep into the soil, away from plant roots, and wash away. The desalinization happens quickly over a season, creating much healthier plants, greater yields, and better final product.

The Omni Enviro H2O ENERGIZER is a simple flange containing powerful, specific inductance magnet tubes that restructure the water and minerals passing through them into a more fulfilling and productive bio-available form.

At Omni Enviro, our starting point for good water means it actually enters the cellular structure of the plant or animal. Water that doesnt hydrate, isnt good water as far as were concerned. After all, the number one reason for illness in all living things world-wide is dehydration.

Since hydration is the basis for cellular health and vigor, then thats our starting point. (We add a lot of other benefits that make good water the best water, but well get to that in a minute.)

Heres the hard part to swallow: A lot of sweet tasting, soft, bottled water doesnt hydrate very well. Even if you can see through it. Thats because many of the water molecule clusters are too large to enter the cellular structure of the plant or animal.

But when water is processed through the hydrodynamic magnets of the Omni system, the oversized water molecule clusters are broken down into miniscule units, with only six water molecules in each cluster. That incredibly small size is completely bioavailable to the cellular structure, able to easily enter the cells and more fully hydrate. If the idea of water being broken down into clusters of six water molecules seems foreign to you, just look at a snowflake, the basic unit of frozen water. How many legs does a snowflake have? Six.

Now, back to hydration. Full hydration balances typical negative elements that might be hiding out in the cells, making them nonfactors in terms of negative influence. Full hydration in plants creates healthier, more robust plants that produce greater yields and require less water, since every drop of Omni water hydration is capable of entering cells. In humans, full hydration means a boost in the immune system because of the speedier, more efficient delivery of nutrients and removal of toxins from those cells. It degasses chlorine, chloramine, and fluoride, making them non-interactive with the body. For all living things, this water breaks down minerals into smaller units and holds them in suspension, so they more effectively enter the cells.

Examples of plant health: Omni water increased the yield on a test plot of spinach by 35%; provided 100 more boxes of sweet corn per acre (27% increase); produced increases of broccoli by 21%, lettuce by 24%, and 606 more melons per acre.

But Omni water gets even better than just good. It wont allow scalingand even removes scaling. It washes salts away from the root structure of the plant. It balances pH. And much more. The benefits go on and on. The bottom line? We deliver healthier, hydrating water.

In the breakthrough work by John Burke and Kaj Halberg in the book Seed of Knowledge, Stone of Plenty Understanding the Lost Technology of the Ancient Megalith-Builders, we see that by placing corn seeds in the center of the paramagnetic stones at Stonehenge, the resulting crop grew 20-40% larger than the crop whose seeds were not placed in the center of Stonehenge. It was this concept that we arrived to the conclusion that restoring magnetism was the key to increased life force in all organic matter.

In keeping with the ancient tradition of harnessing magnetic energy. Fractal Water utilizes the very finest magnetics for your Imploder. Our magnets are then wrapped in 10 gauge steel to shield and harness the energy of the magnets, and focus the field towards the center, and directed towards the water. Since only 300 gauss of flux escapes through the steel, the opposite side is much stronger, essentially creating a mono-polar effect.

During this process of passing water through a high magnetic flux density field the molecules in the water, begin to sort themselves, or self organize, in the field of the magnets. Its this structuring of the molecules which makes the water more bioavailable to the plants. This is called redox potential, its a measurement of how much water a plant can soak up.

Centripetal spin in the vortex combines with centripetal flux from super-magnets to produce water molecules stable as more micro cluster.. meaning smaller and more spun. This creates absorption, and solubility. Watch as the Super water soaks into the soil visibly faster in your potted plants. See the example below.

The analysis of the data collected during the study suggests that the effects of magnetic treatment varied with plant type and the type of irrigation water used, and there were statistically significant increases in plant yield and water productivity (kg of fresh or dry produce per kL of water used). In particular, the magnetic treatment of recycled water and 3000 ppm saline water respectively increased celery yield by 12% and 23% and water productivity by 12% and 24%. For snow peas, there were 7.8%, 5.9% and 6.0% increases in pod yield with magnetically treated potable water, recycled water and 1000 ppm saline water, respectively. The water productivity of snow peas increased by 12%, 7.5% and 13% respectively for magnetically treated potable water, recycled water and 1000 ppm saline water.

Reminder- the international research is clear: magnetic water treatment DOES work. Our Super Imploder- at 3000 gauss! per magnet over the large surface area of 8 coherently directed magnets conjugating right into the water flow- IS THE WORLDS MOST POWERFUL MAGNETIC WATER TREATMENT DEVICE.

Abstract Observable changes of water by magnetic fields have been investigated in an attempt to contribute to the knowledge of the structure of liquid water. The crystallization mode of the waters mineral content was found to change from a dendritic, substrate-bound solidification habit to the form of separate disc-shaped crystals after the water had moved through a number of magnetic fields. The former scarcity of crystallization nucleii in the water had been turned into an abundance of nucleation centers in the water. The reduction of the number of the substrate-bound crystals has been used as a quantitative measure of the magnetic effect. A mechanism is suggested assuming that resonance between the time sequence of the magnetic fields and the internal vibratory frequency of the water complexes results in the fracture of some of the complexes. Thereby, the formerly encased foreign particles are released and provide the nucleii for the formation of disc-shaped crystals throughout the volume of the water. Further studies are urged in view of the staggering potential benefits for many water users, such as prevention of hard lime scale build-up, increased effectivity of chemical additions to water for softening, fertilizing, feeding, and cleaning purposes.
