A.No running cost is required.
NMR Pipetector does not require any maintenance or running costs. There is no need of filters or chemicals, and the product itself is maintenance-free throughout its lifespan.
A.If you have an average water cunsumption for a residence, the device will be effective within a few weeks to a month from its installation.
For buildings that have average water consumption for family house (200 to 300 liter per day), NMR Pipetector can reduce level of iron content in a couple of weeks to a month. In case amount of water consumption is small, it may take 3 to 6 months from installation at the latest.
A.Not at all. It's completely harmless.
NMR Pipetector does not affect our health. The NMR phenomenon applied to the device has been used for hospital's MRI equipment for its high safety. Since NMr Pipetector generates extremely weak electromagnetic waves, the device does not harm a person with a pacemaker.
A.No it's not.
NMR Pipetector utilizies free electrons in water, i.e. hydrated electrons, to reduce internal red rust to black rust, so it is not a magnetic device. Please click here for details.
A.There are special rare metals contained in NMR Pipetector that emit a specific length of electromagnetic waves by themselves. NMR Pipetector is therefore completely stand-alone and thus requires no battery or external power supply.
NMR Pipetector reduces red rust to black rust, using free electrons in water. Please check here for more details.
A.Approximately 6 to 7 hours.
*Reference: a test result regarding bacteria reduction, and a test result in respect of NMR Pipetector installed on an elevated water tank inlet pipe.
When water passes through a pipe fitted with the device, water clusters are broken into smaller pieces, being treated by the phenomenon of nuclear magnetic resonance, which occurres on hydrogen nucleui. This phenomenon lasts for six to seven hours, and water clusters do not recombine during the hours. That is when the hydrated electrons are relocated from inside the affected water clusters to their outer surface in a water flow. The electrons prevent formation of internal red rust, water discoloration and extend lifespan of pipes as well as maintan the activated state of water.
A.There is no difference by pipe material as long as problems regarding corrosion stem from internal red rust.
NMR Pipetector is basically effective on any metallic pipes, such as galvanized steel, vinyl chloride-lined, stainless steel, polyethylene-lined steel, copper, etc. Red rust is reduced to back rust throughout piping.
A.Its effectiveness is measured by comparing iron contents in water before and after installation.
The are two methods; one is to take water samples, and the other is to test water with filters. Please click here for details of the procedures.
A. The device supplies free electrons to red rust in pipes.
NMR Pipetector reduces red rust to black rust by using free electorns of water. Please click here for detail mechanism.
A.Red rust and black rust are completely different as substance.
Red rust dissolves in water and corrodes iron while black rust is a solid substance that does not dissolve in water and has 1/10 of cubic volume compared with that of red rust. By reducing red rust to black rust in piping, water discoloration and clogging due to red rust improve, and pipes also gain strength. Please check here for more details.
A.NMR Pipetector can prevent oxidation and deterioration damage on copper.
Copper pipes are oxidized in the same mechanism as iron, so NMR Pipetector can prevent oxidation and deterioration damage in copper pipes. However, stable copper oxide cannot be reduced like red rust in iron pipes since it has no activity in reduction.
A.For issues regarding calcium scales, please see Non Scalor.
For issues regarding calcium scales, please refer to our another product, an anti-calcium scale device Non Scalor. It is also effective to scales that adhere inside heat exchangers. Non Scalor will be more effective when it is used together with NMR Pipetector.
