Savings for Hospitals & Medical Centres

Typical annual savings £,000* 

Money savings: The use of the eco-friendly Vulcan water treatment saves you time and money from day one of the installation. It is a solid purchase for your operation with a quick return on investment.

  • Monthly savings in large buildings
  • Pipes and appliances stay cleaner
  • More efficiency of heating systems
  • Minimized cleaning costs
  • Less repairs of equipment
  • No more maintenance or salt purchases for water softeners
  • The monthly savings can amount up to 15-20% on your current costs

Increase the efficiency of your heating system

When water is heated in a water heater or with a tank-less water heater, shard water always leads to deposits on the heating elements. This layer inevitably causes a great reduction in the capability of the heat to transfer.
A scale deposit of only 2mm (~0.078 inches) can lead to an energy loss of more than 15%. The increase in heating time leads to a tremendous rise in your power consumption.

ROI approximately 12 months

The analysis of the cost saving potential for your hotel includes factors such as:

  • Number of rooms
  • Number of bathrooms/toilets
  • Number of restaurant kitchens – and size of them
  • Size of treatment pool and spa area
  • Daily laundry volume
  • Type and dimensions of the heating system
  • Number of cooling towers and dimensions
  • Garden area that needs irrigation
  • Daily use of water etc.

These factors quickly multiply and add up to a considerable cost saving potential. Please contact your local distributor for a thorough cost analysis.

*The actual savings may vary due to the exact degree of water hardness and your lifestyle

Suitable for Agricultural applications

Vulcan – The Alternative to Water Softeners Hospitals, nursing homes and health care facilities all go through a large quantity of water on a daily basis. Traditional salt-based water softeners produce sodium-rich water and are not recommended for patients suffering from hypertension, heart and circulatory problems. Vulcan is the eco-friendly and salt free solution of choice.
The Eco-Friendly Solution Vulcan does not alter the chemical composition as it does not add salt to the water. Important minerals such as calcium and magnesium remain in the water for your benefit. Vulcan reduces bacterial growth by starving them of nutrients contained in scale. Studies show that Vulcan creates a more sanitary environment while providing healthy water for patients and staff alike. Vulcan is a perfect salt-free, eco-friendly and cost-saving solution to your hard water problems.
Managing a large building demands constant observation of all technical equipment, sanitary stations, outdoor areas, etc. Vulcan helps to improve manageability, sustainability and protability in many areas. Vulcan ensures all appliances which come in contact with water will obtain their maximum life expectancy as well as signi cantly reducing their maintenance requirements.
The Solution to Scale and Rust Vulcan carefully dissolves already existing deposits in the piping system. The scale build-up process is reversed and the pipes gradually become clean again. This take-out process will not block up your pipes or drain because the treated crystals are microscopic in size and wash away in the water. Stops scaling in pipes and appliances Gently sanitizes the piping system Protects against rust damage and perforation
Daily Savings Running costs for Machinery Vulcan improves the performance and efficiency of many machines that operate with water. The use of Vulcan saves you time and money from day one of the installation.
Application Examples Hospitals and Clinics Nursing Homes Dental Clinics Rehabilitation Centers Spas and Wellness Centers Hospital Canteens and Cafeterias Post-operative Care Facilities
Machinery and appliances have six typical money saving areas

  1. Scaling inside the machine is minimised.
  2. If additives are used they are often more effective and last longer.
  3. The machine can run longer before it needs to be serviced again. Often cleaning of the parts is much easier.
  4. Less repairs and less need to replace individual parts
  5. Tanks that carry water or other liquids need less maintenance and cleaning thereof. Most of the time it is much easier and faster. This reduced service time results in fewer production breaks.
  6. Less biofilm and bacterial growth allows a reduction of control measures and chemicals to combat this.

Some examples of savings potentials for machineryCooling towers

  • Higher cycles of scale concentration which minimizes water
  • Less clogging and therefore fewer malfunctions
  • Less maintenance service needed per year
  • Easier cleaning of the tank
  • Less toxic bleed water with minimized bacterial growth
  • Cooling Towers Machinery

Solar water heating

  • Less scale build-up in the system – distributor tubes, heat exchangers, vacuum tubes, etc.
  • Less maintenance service per year
  • Less repairs of individual parts
  • No more need to circulate acids
  • Solar Application Machinery

Reverse Osmosis Filtration (RO)

  • Filter membranes last longer
  • Leftover water less aggressive


Vulcan Systems in the NHS

Vulcan systems are now in a number of NHS hospitals to help reduce costs of repairs and maintenance caused by hard water and limescale problems. The application of Vulcan systems has seen a reduction in sludge, slime and ligionella count.
