newterra ScaleBuster® - ISB® (Ion ScaleBuster®)

newterra, ScaleBuster, ISB, Ion ScaleBuster

newterra's proprietary patented ScaleBuster®, also known as ISB® (Ion ScaleBuster®), technology has been utilized for environmentally friendly, water conditioning by the residential, commercial and industrial markets for more than 18 years (Since 1994). The technology has been used by some of the world's largest commercial and industrial companies to treat lime-scale, corrosion, and other water challenges. Over 100,000 units have been sold worldwide.

The Problem

Scale and general corrosion form on equipment surfaces and restrict water flow, clog systems and reduce system efficiency resulting in costly equipment down time and increased maintenance costs. Using chemicals to treat these conditions results in high chemical disposal costs, pollution of the environment and related health and safety issues.

Scale & Fouling
Degrades performance thus increasing energy and water usage

Reduces equipment life and increases capital spending

How It Works

The ISB® ScaleBuster® both inhibits scale and corrosion from forming and removes pre-existing scale already attached to internal equipment surfaces improving heat exchange performance and resulting in:

•Reduced Operating Costs.
•Increased Equipment Lifespan.
•Reduced Chemical Usage.
•Improved Health and Safety

The Solution

newterra, ScaleBuster, ISB, Ion ScaleBusterThe basic and primary function of the ScaleBuster® as a physical water conditioner is to inhibit and reduce scale and corrosion in general pipe-work, heating and plumbing equipment, appliances and processing equipment. The patented, electrostatic device operates without electrical power and has no moving components. The electrostatic device uses the dielectric characteristics of the special plastics and metallic materials of its construction combined with the hydraulic conditions present during operation to force the precipitation of solid crystals in the water. This reduces the likelihood of scale and corrosion from forming and conditions the water to absorb scale already attached to internal equipment surfaces.

The range of applications to which ScaleBuster® can be used is extensive. Experience since 1994 with this technology shows that the fundamental requirements vary depending on water systems, system layout and equipment to be protected. The newterra, ScaleBuster, ISB, Ion ScaleBusterrequirements will also vary depending on whether the product is for new construction or refurbishment of an existing system. newterra has established a family of products to cover the range of installations from individual appliance protection and building usage through to large heavy industrial process applications.
