Two Turbulators with 8” diameter were installed at the main line, prior to the heat exchanger. Every day, over 5 million gallonsof water is used per day, travelling tens miles of spaghetti line pipe. The fast daily half inch thick scale formation on the pick heater is due to a final stage of rapid water heating from 140˚F pre-heated temperature to a minimum 180˚F temperature (USDA requirement).
Prior to installing Magnation’s double Turbulator, the customer implemented daily cleaning, boring and acid wash to maintain the pick heater. The time between cleanings is now extended by several days and the job is significantly easier due to the softer, powdery composition of the scale formation as opposed to the rock-hard crystal formation like before, saving an estimated $250,000-$300,000 a year.
Magnation-treated water significantly reduces the total dissolved solids (TDS) from bottled Arrowhead Spring Water. Images taken over several weeks of evaporation.

Untreated: Average 2599 kg of Dry Matter/Hectare
Magnation treated: Average 2869 kg of Dry Matter/Hectare
Observations include "Visually dense and greener on the Magnation-treated area." Some sections measured 600kg more than untreated section when measured with pasture gauge.

Magnation-treated water shows significant difference in density, uniformity and color.
The grass seeds used were 2016 Bent Grass “007” (this grass is used on theirs and many other courses is South Africa's fairways). Pictures taken 8 days after planting of seeds. Magnation-treated water vs. untreated water used for this test.
This test was done independently by Steven Webber, Superintendent of Clovelly Golf Estate in Fish Hoek, Cape Town, South Africa.
Greenskeeper states "Much more penetration and effect of water with Magnation, and more vegetative turf on the treated side of greens."
Since 6/30/15 irrigation water dosage with Magnation 20% lower than without Magnation.
Test Dates: May 22, 2015 - July 9, 2015
Location: The International Airport Golf Course, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Irrigation Equipment: Toro
Model Year: 2012
Spray distribution is much more uniform with smaller droplets. Left side shows clumping together of droplets, while right side shows an even application for improved foliar absorption and more efficient use of spray program.

Higher pressure and flow created by Magnation's Turfbolt allow for less irrigation drift via sprinklers.
Customers report better watering under the arc due to smaller and more uniform droplets.

Tomato comparsion was conducted at Compagniesdrift Farm in Botriver District, Western Cape, South Africa. The farm uses tunnels in which they grow tomatoes for various outlets as well as for the open market in Cape Town. There were three valves supplying water to these tunnels. One of these three valves was fitted with a 3/4” Turfbolt.
Observations included visually less leaf burn in extreme heat conditions, stronger insect and disease resistance, better roots and yield increase with Magnation unit installed.
"We encountered extreme heat conditions over this specific period and the Magnation-watered tomatoes had way less heatburn and was overall much stronger and healthier than the non-Magnation tomato plants. The Magnation-watered tomatoes had an increased yield of 10.48% above the non Magnation watered tomatoes and received 20% less water. It was also noted at the end of the cycle that the Magnation watered plants had a better developed root structure and overall plant mass was better than the non magnation watered plants (29% and 18.75% respectively)."
The Raspberries trial is in the Hemel and Aarde Valley Farm, Hermanus District, South Africa .
The production manager at the farm states, “In terms of 1st class quality assessment we do at pack house intake, it was the best performing block on the farm. It had the lowest counts of mould, cladisporium. Also the lowest levels of soft fruit of blistered fruit and low levels of insect damage. This assessment is YTD. Comparing it to the control block trial block it performed 22% better. When the field was under attack from Spider mites, visually it was less severe in the trail valve compared to the control blocks.”View more testimonials about needing less insecticides, fertilizers & chemicals

On the Untreated we counted a 29000 population ear count with the weight of 3.685 pounds for 6 ears. On the Magnation Treated we counted 29500 ear count and the recorded weight of 3.865 pounds for 6 ears—for the same investment of seeds, inputs, water and time!
"Magnation has helped us with both seed germination and our irrigation. I can see night and day difference. The soil stays really moist even through extreme heat conditions. We've really had a dry, hot August, so I am especially impressed. Yesterday we did the counts and checked the weights (see photo). I can say that we are getting a real benefit out of using the Magnation units. It's the combination of treating the seeds and treating the water."

Scott Borman of Nebraska states..."I did some computations based on the results that Gerry Konan's photos show. On his non-treated corn, he had 29,000 plants ... but with Magnation he harvested 29,500 plants. That's 500 more harvested ears of corn per acre. All you have to do is some simple math. I have 720 acres. 500 x 720 = 360,000 plants MORE if you use Magnation for seed germination. THAT'S LIKE HAVING ANOTHER 12 AND A HALF ACRES OF LAND! That's because of the extra seeds that were germinated. If that doesn't convince someone to try Magnation, I don't know what will!"
Farmer Lee Fintel from Superior, Nebraska boasts big yield increase on his corn and soy harvests. His harvest monitor reflects 14.6% yield increase from last year's harvest on his corn, and 9.1% yield increase on his soybeans. Lee used the Seed Maximizer and Turbulator for his farms.View more corn & soy testimonials
Early adopter Wayne Gularte of Rincon Farms in Gonzales, California noticed yield increase of 35% in his spinach program. Plant vitality, germination rates and yield were noticeably better from the beginning. "
My baby spinach yield was over 35% higher with the Magnation unit. It gave me uniformity of seed germination so I could harvest all at the same time."
