CHEMICAL FREE DE-SCALING & SCALE PREVENTION

Hydrosmart is having a significant impact within the turf and municipal sector and provides solutions to problems that result from the available water supply being less than ideal. Hydrosmart allows turf growers to utilise water supplies previously considered unsuitable, greatly increasing grounds viability and infrastructure longevity in ever changing climate conditions. The bond breaking technology of Hydrosmart, provides the turf & sports field industry with a cost effective water treatment alternative which is completely sustainable, chemical free and environmentally friendly.

HOW IT WORKS

Orbitsmart’s computer generated provides both de-scaling or cure, and scale prevention. It does this by acting on minerals to change large crystals into tiny particles, and so effectively prevents scale from forming. The effects of ULF&VLF treatment remain present in water for several days and progressively break down any already existing scale or bio-films.

HEALTHY TURF IN HIGH SALINITY WATER

Orbitsmart consistently provides users with the ability to grow a wide range of healthy plants in water with salinity levels normally considered toxic. Salinity issues have a high profile in the agricultural sector because of the potential threat they pose to sustainable agriculture. Orbitsmart technology is part of the good news for councils and clubs. Over many years it has proven to be a very cost effective way of resolving salinity issues for field and turf maintenance on a variety of soil types and with various salinity levels.

COUNCILS

Councils use Orbitsmart to maintain healthy buildings, ovals, nature strips, gardens, and ponds when utilising poor quality, high salinity, or high calcium water. The bond breaking process of Orbitsmart is effective on these fronts and is a truly sustainable solution. Abandon harsh descaling chemicals and lessen your fertiliser requirement, so that growth in your public areas will flourish and your city’s profile will benefit. Citizens will comment on the improvement, as has happened at other council areas treated.

ANTI-CORROSION

Orbitsmart was originally developed as an anti-corrosion technology, which continues to be one of its strengths. By breaking transient bonds, Orbitsmart dissolves minerals more thoroughly and for longer than in untreated water. The resulting effective hydration of minerals, means they are less reactive and their corrosion activity is neutralised.

YOUR IRRIGATION IN ACTION

The first bonds to be broken are those between the pipe work and the scale, which can sometimes break off in lumps and flow towards the end of the irrigation system, making it important to flush out the broken down scale during the first few weeks of the de-scaling process. More conventional treatments require the use of acid which ends up in the soil. By contrast, with Orbitsmart there are no harmful chemical additions to the soil, so soil health remains robust.

CLUBS

Many clubs use Orbitsmart to maintain healthy lawns because of the growth advantage conferred, and ability to utilise poor quality, high salinity, high calcium or high iron water sources. The bond breaking process of Orbitsmart is proven effective on these fronts and is a sustainable solution. Reduce reliance on descaling chemicals and lessen your fertiliser requirement, so that your turf will be healthier and your business bottom line will benefit. Members and visitors will comment on the improvement.

BENEFITS FOR TURF GROWTH

After installation of Orbitsmart, minerals remain in the flow as smaller particles that will pass through any dripper, filter or spray nozzle that has a pore size bigger than 4 microns. The small particles become bio-available as a plant nutrient, giving a double benefit. Iron, calcium, and magnesium build up in pipes is released and converted into available nutrients. Treating an irrigation system with Orbitsmart provides considerable savings in the maintenance cost of labour and associated consumables, and ensures that irrigation is constant.

  • No blocked sprinkler heads

  • Healthy turf in high salinity water
  • Reduction in fertiliser
  • Reduction in wetting agents
  • Reduction in pesticides
  • Improved and quicker growth
  • Improved water penetration = less water use

SCIENCE

Orbitsmart is a scientifically proven and truly sustainable way to prevent scale and enhance plant growth. You will enjoy the benefits of softened water across your entire operation. Trials conducted by PhD qualified scientists have demonstrated that a reduction in mineral particle sizes provides descaling and softening, and a highly significant growth advantage to living plants under treatment
