Decades of research and development, precise science and quality engineering makes us the best in our field.
We lead the field in
With 50 years’ experience behind us and installations across the globe, we’re the most widely used conditioning manufacturer in the world. We use catalytic technology to treat water with nothing added and nothing taken away. No harsh chemicals, no waste water, no energy consumed. Our water conditioners respect the environment, your health and your pocket.
Why choose us?
Nothing added, nothing taken away
Our water treatment uses chemistry, not chemicals. We use catalytic technology to exploit the solubility balance of precipitating calcium ions into the bulk solution of the water. Zero salt, zero consumables.
Some use power, others magnets, and some even add small ions to the water in the form of zinc or other organic media to generate calcium precipitation. But our unique ability to bond calcium into a much more insoluble state means our conditioning is more comprehensive and our treatment lasts much longer too.
Decades of research and development, robust testing and precision engineering with stainless steel make our conditioners the most accredited on the market.
Designed & manufactured in the UK
Our solutions rely on exact science so we design and manufacture everything in the UK, and our quality assurance and testing processes are second to none.
Tested & approved by the US government
Following a recent 18-month intensive study by the USGSA, Fluid Dynamics are proud to be the world’s only water treatment company tested & proven ‘effective’ by the GSA under the US Government’s Green Proving Ground Scheme, as a valid & effective alternative to traditional salt based water softeners.
Built to last, in every sector
Our products are precision engineered with stainless steel and come with a 15 year ‘pro-rata’ warranty, up to 20-year lifespan and a 1-year money-back guarantee.
Zero maintenance: plug & play
With our water conditioners, you can set it and forget it with zero maintenance, consumables, wastewater or power.
Environmentally & financially conscious
Less limescale means improved energy efficiency, resulting in a fast return on investment and reduced carbon footprint. Good for business, good for the planet.
Softening vs Conditioning
Sodium intake, chloride discharge
Consumes energy & water
Consumables – salt
Not suitable for all drinking water due to sodium levels
Removes essential macro minerals
Flow interruption as regeneration is required
Requires annual maintenance
Has a large installation footprint – requires consideration for salt storage and regular delivery
High Capex outlay, additional piping/multiple tradesman as well ongoing maintenance and servicing
No salt required – no discharge
No energy consumption or waste water – green alternative
Nothing is added or removed – we keep all the good stuff like calcium & magnesium
Healthier alternative – keeps calcium & magnesium in the water
No wasted water or flow interruption
Environmentally friendly method for scale prevention
No maintenance required
Small installation footprint and no storage requirements
Lower Capex and no ongoing running cost
The GSA (‘General Services Administration’ - US Govt Agency), selected Fluid Dynamics for testing and verification as to the effectiveness of our technology. Fluid Dynamics are now the only water conditioner in the world to be approved by the GSA as a suitable alternative to water softening by chemicals.
”Fluid Dynamics’ technology has demonstrated its effectiveness in this study, and should be considered for adoption at GSA facilities that are experiencing scaling issues. In water heating systems. Most larger GSA facilities use cooling towers and hydronic heat.
The University of Reading conducted a study to prove the ‘proof of mechanism’ that the catalytic alloy reacted with water in a way that resulted in limescale prevention.
”Fluid Dynamics’ water treatment technology significantly reduces the potential for limescale precipitation at ‘end use points’ such as kettles, shower heads and boilers.
Brunel University has carried out a number of successful research projects around non-chemical water treatment with the renowned Prof J. Donaldson. One of the projects involved the study of the affect of our magnetic treatment system on a range of fluids including hard water.
”The research we have carried out shows that magnetic fields do interact directly with charged species in fluids and that these interactions change the subsequent behaviour of the charged species. The use of applied magnetic fields to control crystal growth, including scale prevention processes, is part of the general phenomenon -the magnetic treatment of fluids.
Texas A&M University in the USA commissioned a study to find a non-chemical solution to prevent scaling in a novel heat exchanger. The heat exchanger was developed as part of a new type of desalination – Vapour Compression Desalination. Efficiency could not be maintained to produce the vapour due to scale build up so a number of scale prevention methods were evaluated.
”The Fluid Dynamics system was tested and chosen / credited as being the most effective method from all of the competing participants (further information available on request).
Harwell University undertook a study focusing on the Colloid-a-tron and its ability to prevent limescale formation in hard water.
”Fluid Dynamics exploits the CaCo3 equilibrium by manipulating the local CO3 concentration and, thus, causing CaCo3 crystal formation in the water which reduces the risk of scaling.
Dublin University developed a feasibility study on using catalytic conditioners in heating coils.
”Results show that following our catalytic treatment of water, the colloidal calcium carbonate crystal remained in its treated form for the entire test period of 3 months - compared to magnetically treated water which will collapse after 24-48 hours.Water that has been ‘conditioned’ and is used in recirculating hot water systems may need re-treating after prolonged periods of time (booster). Water that is left open to the air - treatment will degrade over a 2-3 week period
A study was commissioned by Fluid Dynamics with Wroclaw university to show a measurable effect on treated water. This study looked at developing a method for testing the efficiency of treatment in certain waters (district heating systems) and developing a method to measure this effect.
”It was shown that the Fluid Dynamics system had a significant effect on redox in water and which can be used as an indicator for successful treatment
As a pioneer of the water conditioner market with unrivalled experience, The International Association of Plumbing & Mechanical Officials (USA) asked Fluid Dynamics to design a testing criteria for water conditioners which could be used in conjunction with obtaining a UPC code.
”The IGC 303-14a was developed and is now used as an industry standard in the USA for verifying the efficiency of water conditioners.
100% green & chemical-free
No chemical-polluted waste water
Lower energy consumption
Reduced carbon emissions
”A direct comparison of catalytic treatment versus salt softening, shows that for every negative/ challenge of salt softening - there is a positive / benefit of catalytic treatment.GLOBAL WATER TREATMENT CONSULTANT
”After the installation, there was no scale buildup at all. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a chemical free alternative to salt softeners and/or to reduce limescale.FLUID DYNAMICS CUSTOMER
”In general, people are simply amazed at a no salt, no chemical, no electrical, no power way to deal with hard water. We highly recommend Fluid Dynamics and their fine technology!FLUID DYNAMICS MAJOR MERCHANT
”I have been associated with Fluid Dynamics International for over 10 years and have witnessed the rapidly growing acceptance of their technology. The products are green, have a long life, do not require power or consumables and, as they simply replace an existing section of pipe, they have a zero footprint.FLUID DYNAMICS DISTRIBUTOR
”I am now a believer and have become a big supporter of the product which is now standard issue on our boiler fed heating systems and recommended to all of our customers. We highly recommend this product.COMMERCIAL CUSTOMER
