Calmat® is a physical water treatment system that does NOT use chemicals or salt. It does not change the chemical mixture of the water. Instead, it changes the physical characteristics of the scale crystals in a way that the scale particles lose their adhesive power. calmat does not need to have direct contact with the water and sits outside of the pipe.

It treats the water with electric impulses which are generated in the electronic unit and are controlled by a computerized micro-chip. The signal-frequencies are transmitted via the calmat-impulse-cables that are wrapped around the pipe. The cables interact as pairs and form a frequency-field that changes the crystals in the water as it flows by.

Scale causes many problems.

  • Blocked piping systems
  • Dull surfaces and malfunctioning machinery
  • High costs for heating
  • High expenses for cleaning
  • Rust accumulation in the pipe that leads to corrosion
  • Bacterial growth in drinking water carrying pipe

How does Calmat solve all these problems?

Calmat stops scaling in pipes and appliances

Without the calmat water treatment, the scale particles in the water form sticky crystals that then build solid deposits. The patented calmat-Impulse-Technology modifies the crystallization of calcium and magnesium using the natural process of electrophoresis. The crystals become smoother and rod-shaped and can no longer attach to each other. Scale is now washed away in the water as a fine powder. The formation of new deposits is stopped. The more rod-shaped crystals that are created, the stronger the positive effect of scale-prevention.

Scale is removed faster than it forms.

The natural surplus of carbonic acid dissolves the scale from the scale. Gradually and carefully, the deposits in the pipes will be removed.

The removal of scale = the removal of rust

As soon as scale deposits have built up, iron particles imbed into it. Thus, the scale and the rust blend into one material that are seen as red-colored deposits in the pipe. When the calmat-treatment dismantles the scale, it simultaniously removes all rust with it. Clearing out the deposits is a gentle process where scale is brough back into solution and washed out in the water as as : calcium, magnesium and iron. It is absolutely save to drink as these are all healthy minerals.

Removal of scale deposits = removal of bacteria

We know that scale acts as a breeding ground for bacteria and other unwanted substances. As soon as calmat is installed and the scale is cleaned away, the bacteria breeding ground disappears. This way, bacterial contamination is greatly reduced or even fully removed.

Calmat protects against rust damage and perforation

Copper and/or iron oxidation occurs in all metal pipes through contact with calciferous (hard) water. These oxides seriously affect the pipe surfaces and may lead to corrosion. The calmat-impulse-technology generates an electrophoresis-effect which produces a protective metal-carbonate layer. According to the material of the pipe, this layer consists of copper-carbonate, iron-carbonate or zinc-carbonate and settles on all shiny metal surfaces. It protects the pipe from aggressive substances which could lead to corrosion.
