ION Enterprises

A Pioneer in Green Corrosion & Scale Inhibiting Technology

Founded in 1990 in England, ION Enterprises manufacturers a range of environmental water treatment devices under the trademark ION ScaleBuster® and ISB®. The company has sales offices in Europe, North, Central and South America, Southern Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Since inception, ION ScaleBuster products have been installed, with excellent results, in more than 300,000 applications for commercial, industrial, municipal and residential projects around the world.

An Innovative Approach to Water Conditioning

Inhibits Scale & Corrosion.

Reduces Costs, Maintenance & Chemical Use.

ION ScaleBuster is a proven water conditioning technology for general pipework, heating and plumbing equipment, appliances and processing equipment.

Designed for industrial, commercial, and municipal applications, the proprietary electrostatic technology of the ION ScaleBuster works effectively and efficiently – without chemicals, power or moving parts. The hydrodynamic conditions present during operation force the precipitation of crystals in the water. This process prevents the formation of scale and corrosion, and allows the water to absorb scale already attached to internal piping and equipment surfaces.

ScaleBuster Technology

How It Works? The operation of the patented ION ScaleBuster requires a moving stream of water to enable the hydrodynamic process to work.

  • As water flows through, cavitation within the ION ScaleBuster chamber unit produces violent pressure changes that break up bicarbonate molecules and the dielectric materials produce static effects.
  • The galvanizing action of the ION ScaleBuster causes the breakdown of calcium and magnesium bicarbonates in the solution, (hardness in the water) which precipitate less soluble carbonates.
  • As a result, the treated water becomes less saturated and is able to dissolve existing deposits over time.
  • The combination of these effects is repeated many times. Once the salts are precipitated or removed, this action improves the flow and overall efficacy and efficiency of the piping system.

Chemical-Free Flocculent

The patented construction of its PTFE (Teflon®) turbulence chambers alters the static balance within the unit. This neutralizes charged particles, causing them to flocculate, or form large clump particles that are slower to re-dissolve in the water.

In normal “straight flow” systems, the flocculate particles of scale remain harmlessly in the flow of the water and are unable to adhere to the pipe surfaces. In re-circulating systems – or those that contain settlement areas – filtration or flushing is commonly used to remove these treatment by-products.

Corrosion is now under control and further damage to the system and associated equipment is prevented.
