Extend the lifespan of your equipment and reduce maintenance by choosing innovative and sustainable water treatment.

Lime deposits and corrosion in industrial plants

The more modern your facility, the more complex the plumbing and systems that are used.

Whether limescale problems, burst pipes, or premature wear from corrosion, the impact on entire production from suboptimal water management should not be underestimated.

Untreated water will cause higher energy consumption of heat-carrying equipment or premature wear of machines and their parts.

Unplanned disruptions or expensive maintenance work can paralyze an entire plant and cause immense downtime costs. 

Water treatment can reduce your operating costs

Modern limescale converters can have direct positive effects on your production.


Your equipment can operate more smoothly and trouble-free. The treated water increases the protection of your equipment against lime deposits. The result: less calcification, less wear, fewer pipe bursts.


Every millimetre of lime on your heat-transferring equipment increases your energy costs by up to 10%. With treated water, you reduce them. The environment is also happy about this.


Your company takes another step towards environmental protection. With the right system, you can reduce the use of chemicals in water treatment and actively contribute to environmental and water protection.


Thanks to the clever design of the limescale transformer, it cleans itself. Once installed, the devices work up to 10 years, depending on the water quality. And that entirely without maintenance.

AQUABION® limescale converter
for industrial applications

The sophisticated AQUABION® limescale converter offer you the above advantages and can be used for: 

Renowned industrial companies worldwide rely on AQUABION® limescale converter. Developed and produced in Germany and patented in Germany, some EPC countries as well as in other important industrialised countries of the world and protected by trademark law as an EU trademark, IR trademark and as a national trademark in other important industrialised countries of the world, the function of the AQUABION® limescale converter is essentially based on the electrogalvanic principle. The innovative design of the system makes it maintenance and chemical-free.

Operating principle

The core consists of a high purity sacrificial anode surrounded by a brass sheath. The galvanic elements consist of a half-cell of a less noble metal and a half-cell of a more noble metal.

The less noble metal, in this case the sacrificial anode, gives up its electrons, causing ions to detach from the sacrificial anode and pass into the water flow. Electric current flows through the transfer of electrons.

In the AQUABION® limescale converter, the cell voltage is 0.4 to 1 V, depending on the respective water parameters. Various swirl elements made of stainless steel are connected upstream and downstream of the anode.

They create turbulence in the water flow. This keeps the anode free and achieves the largest possible contact surface with the water flow.

The ions dissolved from the anode in the water now cause precipitation of the still liquid limescale in the cold water. This is an innovative method to reduce corrosion and calcification of piping systems and metals.

For example, in shipbuilding, anodes on the outer walls of hulls protect the metal walls, and bar anodes often protect higher-value compounds such as steel or galvanized iron and copper materials from corrosion.

Chemical formula:

Zn²⁺ + 2HCO₃²⁻ >ZnCO₃ + H₂O + CO₂ 

Chemical-free treatment against limescale and corrosion

The contact of the water with the sacrificial anode inside and the sheath outside modifies the lime particles contained in the water and significantly reduces their ability to settle in pipes.

The clever design of the system eliminates the need to refill salt tablets or add chemicals and external power.

This makes the AQUABION® limescale converter maintenance-free and cheaper to operate than other systems.
