TURBO TAC WATER CONDITIONING & FILTRATION SYSTEM
Systems contain a three complimentary filter media which combine to prevent hard water scale and remove metals and chlorine.
The system illustration shows the down flow path of the incoming mains water which passes first through a specific media which removes metals such as Iron, Manganese & Copper. The next stage is a premium grade Coconut shell carbon which removes bad taste and odours and chlorine…. which produces great tasting water. The final stage is an up flow path through the central riser tube which contains Next Scale Stop which is our Template Assisted Crystallisation (TAC) scale prevention technology.
They have in common that they do not remove calcium and magnesium ions from water (as softeners do) but, rather, they change these hardness minerals from their ionic form to a harmless crystalline form. In this very stable form, calcium and magnesium do not attach to pipes, appliances, and fixture surfaces. The crystals are so small, in fact, that they are readily rinsed away by the normal flow of water. This technology is often referred to as “template assisted crystallization,” or simply TAC.
“TAC employs a special surface-treated resin bead to act as a catalytic nucleation site for the conversion and growth of hardness crystals, which are subsequently released and remain in solution without forming scale. Atomic sized nucleation sites on the surface of small ceramic-polymer beads convert dissolved hardness into microscopic crystals. Once the crystals grow to a certain size they are released from the bead. The crystals in solution keep the hardness out of the water so that it can’t form scale or interfere with soap.” Another writer says, “Unique ‘Template Assisted Crystallization’ (TAC) technology induces the formation of microscopic calcium crystals which effectively isolate hardness from the water chemistry.” *Water must be free of Sulfur and Iron.
