Oakland, Calif., April 30, 2019 – Magnation Water Technologies will be showcasing its commitment to sustainable and efficient water conditioning at BOMA 2019 on June 23-24 in Salt Lake City, Utah (Booth #933). The company’s performance-driven products have helped a wide range of clients correct their hard water problems using a chemical-free, energy-free, maintenance-free and byproduct-free water treatment process. This has led to savings of up to 42% in HVAC energy consumption, all while boosting their clients’ biosecurity and sustainability ratings in the process.

“Magnation is the most sustainable solution with huge and fast ROI for scale removal and prevention — as well as reducing foul odors, hazardous biofilm, and is a powerhouse in significant energy savings, extending equipment life and reducing maintenance,” says Mike Jenzeh, CEO & President of Magnation Water Technologies.

At BOMA 2019, conference attendees will get a first-hand look at how Magnation’s performance-driven products use the powerful forces of physics to turn hard water into soft, high-quality “rainlike” water. These long-lasting products require no maintenance, no electricity, and involve just a one-time installation — seamlessly delivering high-quality water through eco-friendly means.

The Magnation booth at BOMA will highlight three game-changing products. The first is Rainbolt. Although it might just look like a pipe on the outside, this advanced pump uses built-in specialized magnets to reduce viscosity and improve flow in a chemical-free and electricity-free way. The Rainbolt has helped clients see up to 10% savings in water flow efficiency.

The second product to look for will be Aquabolt, Magnation’s midsized device. Built with two Rainbolts at each end, Aquabolt is optimized to disrupt and agitate heavily bonded minerals to water molecules. Finally, Magnation’s patented Turbulator works similarly to the Aquabolt but uses fins and flanges to fit into larger pipes. As the water passes through, hard water is agitated with various geometric designs in order to break apart the bonds that contribute to the structure of hard water.

Treating mineral scale buildup can be costly, time-intensive, and take a toll on the environment. Magnation is shifting the paradigm away from outdated methods and technologies and prioritizing systems that save you time and money while boosting sustainability in the process. At BOMA 2019, visitors will get a first-hand look at the exceptional technology that has made Magnation a global leader in physical water conditioning.

Chemical-Free Scale Mitigation

April 24th, 2019

Solve Mineral Scale, Rust, and Corrosion in Pipes with Physics

Hard water scale problems in HVAC systems dramatically increase operating costs due to a wide range of factors. For example, a 1/8-inch thick layer of scale insulates heat transfer surfaces and causes a 20% to 25% loss of efficiency in boiler performance. Hard scale on boiler tube surfaces causes overheating and the failure of the boiler tubes. Scale within chiller condenser loops inhibits water flow and results in an additional 30% increase in energy usage. Safety valves coated with scale can become inoperable and impact plant safety.

Chemical-based descaling efforts add costs while producing unwanted health and environmental effects. The inefficiency of some chemicals requires even greater amounts to dissolve scales effectively. Acids, chemical inhibitors, and chelating agents create large amounts of scale waste material that pollutes groundwater. The toxicity of the solvents used for scale control and the waste created through the process requires safe work procedures and well-maintained control measures.

Apply Physics Rather Than Chemicals

Powerful alternatives to chemical-based descalers exist. In contrast to relying on salts and chemicals, Magnation’s passive inline water solutions decrease the impact on the environment through physical water conditioning. Magnation’s systems address critical water issues with an innovative scale reduction, scale removal, and scale prevention strategy.

Physical water conditioning uses physics to change the crystal structure of the molecules that create scale. Changing the molecular characteristics removes properties that allow scale-causing minerals to drop out and adhere to other surfaces. Magnation water solutions break the large scale-producing molecules into microscopic particles. Because the inactive, suspended particles flow freely, turbulence pushes minerals through the system — without the use of chemicals.

Reduce the Dangers of Biofilm

Biofilm and bacteria plague cooling towers, evaporative condensers, piping, and hot water systems with foul odors and the risk of infectious diseases. Magnation water solutions alter the physical, chemical, and biological properties of the water to reduce the potential for microorganisms attaching to surfaces and forming biofilm. Rather than dosing industrial systems with biocides, scale and corrosion inhibitors, or dispersants — which can increase the risk of bacterial resistance and harm to the environment — Magnation systems use generated magnetic fields and fluid dynamics to dissolve and flush the minerals in the bulk fluid flow.

Improve Flow and Conserve Energy

The high viscosity of hard water produces friction that leads to greater wear and tear on equipment and higher energy costs. Magnation water descaling units produce energy savings of up to 40% by reducing viscosity and friction. Pumps perform better, require less maintenance, and have longer service life spans. Reducing friction also improves the heat transfer in cooling systems, decreases downtime, and cuts energy requirements.

Magnation’s maintenance-free water scale removal technologies help oil and gas production units, agricultural applications, processing plants, manufacturing facilities, mining operations, and other industries save water, reduce chemical use, conserve energy, and decrease costs. Magnation’s complete line of easy-to-use water technology products includes a two-year, money-back guarantee, along with world-class support.

FC Ajax Amsterdam Thinking Ahead

August 27th, 2018

Magnation_RainlikeWater_Ajax_01Martin Brummel, Head Groundskeeper at FC Ajax NV, has made a commitment to alleviating all chemicals by 2020, to abide by the new environmental law set by The Netherlands—a genuine leader for a new standard of sustainability. While the EU has an agreement to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases in 2020 by 20% on 1990 levels, the Netherlands maintains it’s aggressive efforts to remove chemical use by then.

Read the details of the decisions made here: A General Union Environment Action Programme to 2020 ‘Living well, within the limits of our planet’

The Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) calls on European delegates to promote an ambitious international framework beyond 2020, based on their commitments to release the European Strategy for a Non-Toxic Environment by 2018. The release of such a strategy would make Europe a leader in the SAICM discussions and inspire much needed progress on safe chemicals management.

Magnation is poised to be the solution for not only saving water (which came in handy during the tremendous heat wave this summer), but also assisting the removal of chemicals from turf management (and Ag!) protocol.

The good news is it won’t be so difficult for the Toekomst, the elite training facility for internationally acclaimed, champion-studded professional soccer club out of Amsterdam. Magnation was installed two years ago and as of this summer has amplified the benefits by adding a couple more double-duty Aquabolts to their facility.

The fact that Magnation impacts soil health and promotes moisture retention with balanced distribution is one reason soil amendments can be removed from the menu. Need greener greens? Nature has a way of doing that by absorbing optimal amounts of nutrition… which can be done by way of improving root structures and improved capillary action in the soil, making room for delicious and nutritious molecules to funnel straight up into the vigorous turf those blessed players pound on daily. These things add up, especially when aiming to reduce emissions and significantly curtail the impacts of chemical use.

We keep it simple. Leveraging natural physics is our remedy.

~ Mike Jenzeh, Co-founder and CEO

DripWorks is the dependable source for quality drip irrigation kits and supplies in the Nation, focused on helping plants, crops and gardens thrive. Drip irrigation systems use 50% less water than conventional ones. Water is delivered slowly and steadily to a crop’s root zone, where it is needed most, and unlike overhead sprinklers, less water is lost to evaporation. Using less water means spending less money. In addition, drip irrigation systems usually operate at a lower pressure than other types of pressurized irrigation, reducing energy costs. With reduced utility bills, drip irrigation systems typically recover the cost of the initial investment within the first year or two.

DripWorks is pleased to offer Magnation water optimization devices to amplify the effectiveness of their drip irrigation kits which help customers grow healthier crops, plants and gardens while reducing maintenance issues from mineral scale buildup in irrigation lines, emitters and nozzles.

By expanding the availability of Magnation Water Technologies to DripWorks customers through their catalog or online store DripWorks.com, customers can realize the benefits of Magnation’s “rainlike water” to solve hard water issues like mineral scale buildup, save 20% water, and make better use of time and money for home gardening, commercial growing and agricultural applications.

Magnation’s Rainlike Water makes every drop count.

Soils and plants become vibrant and vigorous when it rains. As a rain drop falls, its molecules become smaller and invigorated with energized, life-giving qualities, amplifying nutrient uptake and plant vigor.

By emulating the physical forces that create this level of exceptional water quality, Magnation comes as close to natural rain water as possible. Easy to install and long lasting, Magnation systems are maintenance-free, chemical-free and energy-free—and leave zero by-products. Learn more about

Moisture retention went up 251% with 50% less water

July 14th, 2016

Moisture Retention up 251%

In the Fruitvale School District, located in northwest Bakersfield, California, Brian Prine has been Director of Maintenance, Operations and Transportation, for almost 11 years. Brian oversees the irrigation of six different campuses in this region. When state requirements forced him to cut his watering time from 6 days a week to 3 days a week, the results were soon evident. The turf on some of the grounds and fields turned brown and, in localized areas, disappeared altogether.  One of the campuses, the Discovery Elementary School, was particularly troublesome. The soil there was clay-based and the lack of water was slowly turning the ground to brick.

Before the drought restrictions were imposed, Prine used to water the grounds 6 days a week in the summer. Now, he is limited to 3 days of watering per week.  “I can’t increase my watering,” said Prine. “And because my campus is so big, I need the full watering time allotted to me. So I had to find a solution that could keep the soil and turf healthy, using half as much water.” However, after doing some research, Prine was hard-pressed to find a solution that was within his budget. “I could use a ‘liquid gypsum’ product on the grounds that has been known to work. But the cost was beyond what my budget allowed. The cost of one year’s worth of applications would be $7,860, and that’s not even considering the added expenses of of time and labor needed to apply the wetting agent about every other month.”

Prine also heard about a water treatment product from a company called Magnation Water Technologies, which claimed to save water, support healthy soil and grass and eliminate the need for wetting agents. Figuring that it was worth a try, he put Magnation to the test on his most problematic campus. He found that the Magnation system could easily be integrated with his existing irrigation set-up at the Discovery School. The company claimed that the product can last for as long as 15 years without needing replacement. The cost?  $3400.  Compared to the $7860 for one application of a wetting solution that would only cover one year, it was well worth the trial, according to Prine.

Raspberries yield 22% better, and repels spider mites

July 1st, 2016

“In terms of first class quality assessment we do at pack house intake, the Magnation-treated block was the best performing block on the farm.

It had the lowest counts of mold and cladisporium. Also the lowest levels of soft fruit, blistered fruit and low levels of insect damage. When the field was under attack from spider mites it was less severe in the Magnation-treated block.

Comparing it to the control block trial block the Magnation treated block performed 22% better.”

Love Almonds!

December 8th, 2015

Magnation_SaveWater_Almonds
The Annual Almond Board Conference, held in Sacramento, CA every December is one of Magnation’s reminders the holidays are here. Our company has been exhibiting since 2009, and have gained a great deal of traction in the nuts industry (yes, it’s easier when you’re nutty yourself).

The conversation lends itself towards water quality & salinity, soil health and of course water conservation without damaging yield productivity.

What is inspiring is that data shows almond growers have steadily improved their water efficiency by 33% over the last 30 years for every pound of almonds grown today! 

One of the ubiquitous issues almond farmers deal with is WATER QUALITY. “Treating the water is extremely important for getting results in farming. Some water is totally unacceptable to plants. Some water is so hard that you have to be very specific where you put it or you’re not going to get good results. Almonds arevery sensitive to water that has certain elements in it. Treating the water with Magnation addresses that problem.” says Chuck Dees, California-based irrigation consultant of 18,000 acres of fruits, vegetables and nuts.
 
WATER CONSERVATION is on everybody’s mind. “I’d say with Magnation you will likely get better results with less water than you would normally have to use. For instance, instead of using 1.000 acre foot of water to produce a certain crop,you would only need to use .950 ac/ft. That’s asignificant savings! Sometimes water costs as much as $2,000 per ac/ft. So if you can save 50 acre feet,then there’s a $100,000 savings in water alone.We know we’ve saved water and money using Magnation’s water systems.”

LESS CHEMICALS is a benefit a grower just can’t ignore. “Where I’ve seen the most benefit is in tree health,” says Mike Etchegoinberry, a Fresno, California almond grower. “Compared to the average grower in this area, my need to spray for bugs is a lot less. I speak to other growers around here and I know that they’re using insecticides much more than I do. I know my tress are a lot healthier than others around here; everyone who stops by, comments on how good the trees look. We’re all caring for our trees the same way, but the difference the other growers aren’t using Magnation.”

Magnation Water Technology Explained

November 14th, 2015

Magnation’s chemical-free, energy-free, and maintenance-free water treatment utilizes various principles of physics to reduce the atomic weight of minerals and de-gas water. The principles of physics include magnetism, Lorentz force, static mixing, vortexing, hydrodynamic cavitation and Venturi.

Water molecule clusters are busted apart and pulverized as they travel through Magation’s water system. After breaking down to smaller water molecule clusters, they are held in suspension, unable to coagulate or stick together. This is what makes Magnation’s water softer and easier to absorb. Energized and activated, Magnation’s Rainlike water is a life-giving boost.

This results in lowered surface tension and viscosity, friction-loss, improved water flow, scale and biofilm control (disrupts ability to build up), improved water infiltration and moisture retention in soils.

End results: improved water quality, less water consumption, less energy requirements, less chemicals and maintenance needed, improved mixing, productivity with higher yields and better plant and soil quality. All with zero by-products.

Agrifac and Magnation, Champions of Doing More with Less

November 8th, 2015

Agrifac-with-Magnation

Magnation Water Technologies began with vision and faith of founders Mike and Stef Jenzeh to introduce revolutionary chemical-free water treatment to farmers in California in 2008, every day in between then and now has been dedicated to improving water quality and maximizing water productivity.

Seven years later in stage 2 of Mike’s European tour with Piet Regnerus of Magliv Corporation—Magnation’s EU distributor—both met yesterday with Peter Millenaar, the general director of Agrifac. Currently a leader in Europe for the manufacturing of spraying machines. They’ve accurately identified that the world needs more and more food the same way Magnation has identified the world needs more and more life-promoting rain like water, and are rising up to the challenge with innovative and efficient designs. This shared understanding makes Magnation and Agrifac both champions of doing more with less.

After thorough, Dutch-style data-based testing of Magnation’s Drift Control products, Agrifac has seen verifiable results showing improved spray quality with smaller droplets, less drift and wider angle spread to be able to lower the boom (thus reducing even more drift and increasing efficacy). This results in more coverage and drift reduction while improving speed—in essence, higher productivity.

“I parallel the innovative Dutch farming techniques to the way they bring value to the international soccer arena. Dutch coaching and strategy has undeniably produced many quality players for the Champions leagues. For example, FC Barcelona adopted advanced innovative systems created by the Dutch years ago, and have catapulted this football (soccer) club into the elite status. With this same attitude and integrity, the Dutch agricultural industry produce high-quality and high-quantity of yields per acre. They’re also one of the smallest impactors on carbon dioxide emissions. With heavy research and production of the highest varieties of seed potatoes in the world, this small country is a global leader in efficient productivity, similar to the Israelis with active openness and solution-oriented towards water quality and quantity in desert soils with their share of agricultural challenges. It’s the resourcefulness I admire, the kind that is paramount to a sustainable future.” says Mike Jenzeh.

Today, Mike and Piet kick off Agritechnica—the worlds largest Agricultural Machinery and Equipment Show in Hanover, Germany from November 10-14th, with preview days November 8-9th, with enthusiasm for a successful week. If you’re in the area, visit us at Booth B-25 to learn more about Magnation’s powerful tools for boosting productivity and a sustainable future of farming.
