Fernox Electrolytic Scale Reducer
Fernox Electrolytic Scale Reducer at PlumbNation is an in-line scale reducer from Fernox which prevents the build up of scale using electrolytic principles.ÂThe Fernox Electrolytic Scale Reducer is not a water softener but it induces coagulation whilst the water hardness remains unchanged.
The Fernox Electrolytic Scale Reducer works in the same way as a small battery, where the copper body (cathode) and the internal zinc (anode) are connected via mains water (electrolyte) to alter structure of the hardness salts. The effect is to enable the hardness salts to cluster together rather than attach to the heat exchanger and pipe work in a central heating system. Limescale deposits are more common where heat is generated and can have lasting damaging effects on the efficiency and life of the boiler. The Fernox Electrolytic Scale Reducer benefits a range of appliances including kettles, taps showers and boiler.
The Fernox Electrolytic Scale Reducers has a service life of between two and ten years (subject to local water hardness) after which time, the effectiveness of the anode will diminish and the water conditions will deteriorate. Once this occurs, it is necessary to replace the scale reducer.
