ScaleBlaster eliminates the formation of lime-scale deposits in pipes, cooling towers, boilers and more. The integrated circuitry system produces a complex modulating frequency waveform that hits the resonant frequency of the calcium molecules, causing them to lose their adhesive properties. Existing scale is removed without the need for chemicals, salt or maintenance.
