The Anti-Scaler(TM) is a device which optimizes the performance of industrial water-cooled heat exchangers by preventing the build-up of mineral scale inside the heat exchanger. The Anti-Scaler is non-magnetic and non-invasive and does not require the cooling water piping to be cut. It is attached to the cooling water line prior to its entering the heat exchanger. The device is available as a "ready-to-install" kit, requiring only a standard 110 or 220V power source.
