The science behind water heating
Typical Tank Water Heaters
Typical water heaters use both conduction and convection when heating water.
When water comes in direct contact with metal heating elements, only the water in the immediate area of the heating element is heated efficiently. (Conduction) Over time, these elements corrode and lose their heating efficiency. In hard water conditions, these heaters can lose 50% of their heating capacity in as little as 6 months.
As the heated water rises, it heats the surrounding water throughout the tank. (Convection)
SioGreen Quartz Infrared
Quartz Infrared Technology uses radiant heat and works on the molecular level.
Water flows in clusters of molecules. When the far infrared rays stimulate these clusters inside the quartz tubes (resonance absorption), the number of water molecules per cluster are decreased and separated.
The infrared energy heats the molecules on an individual basis, ensuring the water is thoroughly heated at an accelerated rate. The water gets hotter, faster and more thoroughly. (Radiant)
This is the tremendous SioGreen advantage...save hundreds of dollars in maintenance costs and extend the life of your water heater! There is no comparison!
In the absence of conductive metallic elements, Calcium and Magnesium Carbonate (Lime) is broken down and remains in suspension and flows through the heater without adhering to the tubes. This results in a more efficient water heating method with no scale or lime deposits even in the hardest well water!
