EBED Performance Water

Net Zero Charge:

Use of the EBED Processor changes the Zeta Potential of suspended colloids in the water, allowing the charge to approach zero. When this occurs, the particles are able to agglomerate (particles merge, creating clusters), which can be filtered out of the water.

Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP):

ORP is a measurement associated with the potential for a chemical (in this case water) to oxidise. Oxidation is often used to kill bacteria in solution. The higher the ORP, the faster the bacteria are killed/oxidized. EBED Performance Water has a higher ORP than other water types, which allows it to kill bacteria more readily.

Biofilm Management

The EBED Processor is a Superior Biofilm Remediation Method

*The EBED Process does not remove all mineral deposition, often referred to as “scaling”.

Biofilm is Naturally Occurring Yet Potentially Harmful

  • Biofilm forms in environments where water meets a surface

  • Microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, viruses) merge and grow into a complex matrix that attaches to surfaces

  • Microorganisms thrive and grow in the biofilm environment, which offers protection from antibiotics and biocides

  • Biofilm is very difficult to remove, especially without the introduction of physical and chemical measures, which are often ineffective, or potentially harmful to human health

Biofilm is Pervasive in All Standard Water Systems

  • Biofilm is difficult to detect, even in well maintained systems

  • The thickness of biofilm could be 200 microns, which is virtually imperceptible

  • Yet 200 microns of biofilm has a profound negative impact on heat transfer efficiency

Heat Transfer

Heat Transfer is Dramatically Impacted by Only Microns of Biofilm

  • The efficiency of heat transfer decreases significantly with small layers of biofilm (200 microns)

  • Biofilm lowers the amount of heat that can be transferred by acting as insulation

  • Note that nearly 80% of efficiency is lost in a hastelloy pipe between 0 and 200 microns of biofilm

  • Even a 10 micron layer of biofilm in copper pipe can reduce heat transfer efficiency by 72%

To Achieve Maximum Heat Transfer Gains, Biofilm Needs to be Virtually Removed

  • The greatest impact of biofilm on heat transfer is within the first 100-200 microns

  • The biggest increases in efficiency from reducing biofilm are in materials that have very high conductivity, eg. Copper and Aluminum, specifically when the biofilm thickness approaches 0 microns.
