Magnetism is, non chemical environmentally safer approach for the
treatment of fluids. Magnetic interactions can achieve separation that
are either impractical or impossible to achieve by other techniques. Magnetic
fields have two functions on scale. Both these effects are responsible
for observed scale loosening.
More experiments have been carried out on calcite and proven to be successful.
Effects on silica still not confirmed.
Chemical composition of all compounds present in scale producing fluids should be known.
