ionises water when it is cold, i.e. when the Calcium
Bicarbonate is still in the liquid state and not solid. This treatment
(ionisation) makes it possible for the heated water, which normally leads
to the transformation of bicarbonate into carbonate and to the passage
from the liquid to the solid state, not to form deposits.

We do not discuss
the designer-installer decision to use M.A.I.C.
with hot water, i.e. to introduce in our equipment hot water not previously
treated by similar devices; certainly the following shall be considered:
M.A.I.C. work with
magnets composing M.A.I.C. equipment fear
high temperatures, above all higher than 250°C;
2. if, as we have seen, scale is produced by the water heating,
to treat already hot water, means that the bicarbonate has already turned
into carbonate and the deposits have already taken place. It is therefore
advisable to treat only cold water.
When we have a cold
water storage vessel (autoclave), it is always advisable to assemble M.A.I.C.
Storage vessels and autoclave: does
M.A.I.C. has to
be installed upstream or downstream?
When waters contain
sand, soil, rust and iron, pre-existing scale, it is advisable to install,
together with M.A.I.C., a mechanical filtration
system. Mechanical filters (manual or semi-automatic) are installed after
M.A.I.C. equipment and dimensioned so as to
ensure a sufficient water flow rate (without pressure drops) according
to the following scheme: M.A.I.C. counter -

products are in compliance with the Decree Law 476 on electromagnetic
compatibility and are in accordance with European directives on electromagnetic
pollution. The magnetic fields of M.A.I.C.
products generate very low frequencies (lower than 50 Hz) and therefore
they are not dangerous.

M.A.I.C. products impose to Calcium
Bicarbonate and which determines the breaking down is temporary:
if water remains under pressure, that is not taken out of the plant, it
can last up to 4 days; if water is extracted from the plant and put, for
instance, into a container, the transformation can last from 12 to 24
hours. In any case, it is always advisable to use the treated water as
soon as possible or however to promptly treat it before its heating.
long does the transformation (ionisation) activated by M.A.I.C.
products, as far as provided in the Ministerial Decree 443 and in the
ministerial authorisation n. 400.4/18.10.A/3385 are suitable for drinking
waters treatment, as they do not alter the chemical composition. In fact,
it was also demonstrated that M.A.I.C. products
reduce the possible bacterial content. Aragonite
(CaCO3), which, thanks to M.A.I.C. replaces
calcite in water which has undergone a heating,
is an essential element of any diet, as it supplies part of the need of

water treated with M.A.I.C. and
the aragonite it
contains suitable for a food use?
