Water is an outstanding transportation vehicle for pollutants
owing to its unique natural characteristics. We can observe
this at a fine material level in our body as well as when
we use water at a rough material level for cleaning purposes
in the household and in industry.
However, we are facing increasingly paramount problems. For
In the human body:
- Heavy metal loads, etc.
Nature, household and industry:
- Some male fish are transformed into the opposite sex due
to increased levels of hormones in the water.
- Limestone deposits in all kinds of technical devices, etc.
Thus, for water to fulfil its task as a cleaning agent it
must be clean and pure. Only in this way can it take up and
transport the pollutants.
We differentiate between two levels of purity:
1. Rough material purity (to be proven by chemical analysis).
Usual tap water contains:
- Pollutants (e.g. heavy metals, nitrates).
- Unwanted materials (e.g. limestone).
Usual cleaning techniques are among others:
- Mechanical precipitation, etc.
These techniques are good for applications with coarse material
levels. At fine material levels, however, these techniques
are not effective:
The pollutants stored in the water cluster can not be blocked
by the filtration medium.
2. Fine material purity (only to be proven by biophysical
Tap water creates larger and larger water clusters (+/- 700
These large clusters store pollutants in their molecular structure
in a very stable way:
How can we "release" these pollutants being trapped
in their molecular structure?
By breaking up this structure:
As a consequence of the hydrogen bridges (connections
between the water molecules) ...
... are extremely stable, there are only two possibilities
for breaking up these hydrogen bridges:
1. Heating of the water to 400°C (very high technical
and energetic effort).
2. Very intensive turbulent mixing of the water (successfully
achieved by the GIE®
Water Activation Technology.
Deposits in water pipelines:
Due to rust, lime and dirt deposits in water pipes house owners,
housing administrations and industry have been facing very
severe problems for decades. Depending upon water quality,
the first impairments and damages already occur after 10 to
15 years. These are the results of rust, lime and dirt deposits
in old water pipes:
- Brown, discoloured water.
- Pitting corrosion and thus the breakage/rupturing of water
- Diminished cross-section and thus decrease of pressure at
the water discharge.
- Clogged armatures.
- Safety and protection facilities fail.
- Germ and bacteria formation (legionellas).
