Rain water is some what acidic because as it falls through the atmosphere it encounters carbon dioxide (CO2) with which it reacts to from carbonic acid as follows Rain water combines with gases in air & becomes slightly acidic

H2O + CO2 = H2CO3
water + carbondioxide = carbonicacid

The slightly acidic water dissolves rock and forms hardness.

The hardness in the water come from the calcium and magnesium salts that dissolved into the water from soluble rocks through which the rain water flows.


Lime scale is the precipitation of calcium salts, especially in hard water areas causing hard scale to form in pipes, taps, washing machines, shower heads, geysers, solar heaters & boilers. Lime scale combines with the soap & make it latherless. It leaves tide marks on baths, sinks, basins, toilets & taps that are difficult to remove.


Research showed that these salts combine with each other to form crystals & attaching themselves to other surface in the form of scale. Further research proved that a rapidly changing electronic wave form would neutralise these bonds but that a different wave form was needed for each mineral which should be generated accurately & with controlled speed.


The UB'CAL uses a series of controlled complex modulating high frequency waveform that neutralises the bonding ability of minerals that are contained in our water. This field effectively agitates different size molecules likely to form scale & to break the bonds between molecules & the water. This results the break down of large mineral crystals into tiny mineral particles & then prevent them from reacting with other minerals or bonding to any surface to from scales. The process is so effective that existing scales are progressively broken down & flushed away in due course of time. The conditioned gaseous ions results in non-corrosive & better tasting water. It also helps the plants to grow well & healthy.


Two coiled antennas wrapped around the water pipe broadcast & induce a series of controlled complex modulated signal field into the water pipe. When water passes rapidly from the complex signal field, it changes the behavior of the mineral particles in the water.

Problems Caused by Hard Water.

Calcite, the main cause of scale, is the most common form of calcium carbonate and occurs naturally as a natural ingredient of chalk, limestone and marble . Water passing over and permeating through such rocks dissolves calcite when this water subsequently flows through a water system the calcite precipitates out to form a very hard scale on surfaces.

When hard water is heated or evaporation take place, the problems are exacerbated. Calcite forms ever growing layers of rock – like deposits until eventually pipes, jets and equipment become totally blocked.

The problem increases as the water gets hotter. Water containing 145 ppm of calcite, flowing at 3.5 liters per minute, produces in one year 4.8 kilograms of scale at 60oC . At 80oC this rises dramatically to a massive 29.9 kilograms!

Scale wastes both energy and financial resources just one eighth of an inch of scale reduces heating efficiency by 25%. It is also very expensive to remove, de-scaling pipes and boilers.

The Benefits of Natural Hard Water

Natural hard water contains minerals and salts which in the main have positive health benefits. Medical evidence suggests that there are lower incidence of heart – related diseases in hard water areas.

The UB’Cal Action

UB’Cal is a unique, efficient, energy – saving device designed to eliminate the problems of hard water, whilst retaining the natural benefits. This is achieved by changing the size of the particles of precipitated compounds, by aiding the ability of crystals to forms their shape, and by altering the solubility of compounds within liquid.

UB’Cal takes the process of induced ionization to its ultimate stage, The principles of Magneto hydrodynamics (MHD) are applied by passing UB’Cal’s signal through a coil wrapped around the pipe to be treated. The signal consists of a frequency modulated (FM) wave form within the audio frequency (AF) width this inaudible sonic frequency signal sets up a dynamic field around and through the coil, pipe and water, and modifies the calcium carbonate crystal nuclei.

The nuclei upon which the crystals start growing are minute in size and have charged surfaces in their natural condition within the water. When they pass through the field these naturally charged nuclei encounter considerable forces as the field interacts with them. The field acts at the surfaces of the nuclei and modifies the nature of the electrical Charges and this ionisation effect thus alters the growth rate and pattern of the crystals in general and on specific planes.


It is this changed size, modified charge and crystalline shape that has the first two beneficial properties for the elimination of scale.

1. The < 4 micron sized crystals become non - sticky and will not coagulate or precipitate and form scale in the same way as untreated calcium carbonate nuclei would. This process is so effective that the water has been found to behave like chemically softened water.

2. The presence of the large crystalline shape disturbs the equilibrium between the fluid and any existing scale. Smaller particles in general, dissolve more easily so the larger particles will have reduced the levels of calcite in solution. Hence,existing scale deposited by precipitation will soften and gradually will be absorbed into solution and flow out of the system. In areas of still water,e.g. tanks ect., The soft scale would settle to the bottom and could then be removed simply by flushing.

It has been seen that the physiochemical process already described is more Efficient because the signal energy is dynamically changing. By changing the signal field at high audio frequencies unique to UB’Cal, the energy imparted to the nuclei is considerably accelerated. The crystal intra molecular structure is rapidly broken down and the occurrence causes a fast dissolution of any existing scale forming molecules.

An important property of UB’Cal processed water is that the charged crystalline shape growth will remain in that state for up to 8 days. Thus in stored water systems the effect is much longer lasting than other ionisation methods, retarding the reversion back to the smaller nuclei structures that are readily precipitated.


The generation of hydrogen peroxide is in minute quantities and readily converts back To water and oxygen. It is widely used a an antiseptic mouth wash, therefore presents No hazard to health.

The sodium content and degree of acidity (PH) remain unchanged. The generation of carbon dioxide invigorates the water but is not enough to cause bubbles.

If calcium sulphate, which causes scum as opposed to scale, if present if will also undergo a change. This increases the effectiveness of soap / detergents.

UB’Cal is Unique

UB’Cal uses a unique method of conditioning water without resorting to chemicals and should not be confused with other devices that have proved to be only partially effective

The fact that UB’Cal can be seen to actually de-scale a water system is proof of its effectiveness. The low cost investment quickly reduces energy, maintenance, and repair/replacement costs and will pay for itself many times over during its expected life-span of more than 10 years.


The Growing Bacteria Problem

The rising growth in hotel and hospital buildings utilising environmental control systems and even more industrial premises using complex electronic control devices for machines and equipment needing rigid environmental condition to retain efficiency, has increased the usage of water for cooling purposes. As they adopt high technology, water cooling systems become ever more complex and difficult to maintain. They are a natural potential breeding ground for bacteria & Algae.

Micro Biological Contamination

Water can contain literally thousands of different types of micro biological bacteria. The legionella bacteria, is known for its widespread in natural water but it requires certain environmental conditions to enable it to multiply. It is knows to proliferate in the presence of scale, sludge, corrosion, algae and organic compounds, all of which can be found in poorly maintained open evaporative cooling systems.


In Properly maintained cooling systems there is little risk from legionella but proper maintenance, according to the health and safety. Executive, involves such treatments As:-

1. Scale and corrosion inhibitors to reduce the volumes of scale or rust which mayharbour legionella and allow it to proliferate.
2. Chlorination to disinfect all parts of the system.
3. Constant Monitoring of water quality.


UB’Cal effectively removes scale from water and systems and also reduces the corrosion problem, thereby significantly reducing bacteria build – up. However it is seen that micro biological analysis of infected water samples were carried out and the result showed a reduction from 4x10o bacteria /cm3 to x 104 bacteria/cm after passing through the UB’Cal signal, (a 90% reduction!).

UB’Cal is your first choice for lime scale removal, lime scale problems. Control lime scale with UB’Cal.


What is hard water? Hard water is water that has high levels of dissolved minerals particularly calcium & magnesium.


Hard water causes scale build up in pipes, hot water systems & showerheads, are blocked. scale on baths, basins and taps. After installation of the UB’Cal water conditioner all the existing scale will be removed and depositition is seen further scale build up will be prevented.

Higher fuel costs.
In Heat Exchangers, boilers or gysers you have to heat the scale build up first & heating scale costs money, just ¼ inch of scale in a hot water cylinder increases your fuel costs by 40% . UB’Cal will remove existing scale from your hot water systems, returning it to it’s original efficiency, thus saving fuel costs.


Scale damages washing machines and dishwashers and resulting in higher maintenance costs and a shorter life.
