No More Sleepless Nights: How to Effectively Remove Lime Scale Caused by Hard Water

After successfully providing several Basic Fit clubs with a demo-installation of the MERUS water treatment technology, the Basic Fit managers have seen the benefits for their gym clubs for themselves. In February 2015, 28 clubs had already been outfitted with the MERUS Technology by Pronomar B.V. and in the meantime this amount has increased to 74 (January 2017). Pronomar, who travels to multiple clubs in Belgium and Luxembourg each month to install the MERUS rings, is particularly happy with these accomplishments and the pleasant collaboration with Basic Fit. Every water consumer suffers from extensive build-up of lime scale in water lines and/or dishwashers, washing machines, boilers, showers etc. In the Netherlands, water hardness is expressed in German degrees of hardness

Vroon chooses again Pronomar as partner for outfitting VOS Shine with MERUS technology

Vroon Offshore Services, a leading maritime offshore-services supplier headquartered in the Netherlands and operating approximately 90 vessels, chooses again Pronomar to equip also the VOS Shine with multiple MERUS rings. Earlier Pronomar already outfitted the sister vessels VOS Sympathy and the VOS Sweet. Following applications were protected with the MERUS technology: • hydrophor for the domestic water system • calorifier feed pipe • warm water circulation line On board of vessels, operations and processes are often disturbed by excessive lime scale. The MERUS rings, once installed around the pipes in question, help the problem at the root: the growth of deposits in general, such as rust, lime scale, bacteria etc., are disturbed and the pipes and appliances remain clean longer.

Fletcher chooses for Pronomar MERUS ring at the Stadspark Hotel

Fletcher chooses for Pronomar MERUS ring at the Stadspark Hotel

After a successful trial period, Fletcher Stadspark Hotel in Bergen op Zoom, The Netherlands, decided to place an order in December 2014. Within the trial period it’s become soon clear to the hotel that they had fewer problems with lime scaling in the wellness area. Also they experienced that now this area requires less maintenance. Fletcher has chosen to install a ½” IND Pronomar MERUS ring for the “Turkish Steamroom”. At hotels, wellness centres and fitness centres, who experience lime scale problems, it’s a good idea to consider the Pronomar – MERUS applications. The MERUS technology consists of a ring that is placed around the water pipe and emits small oscillations to the water. As a result, the growth of

MS Rotterdam is very satisfied with Pronomar MERUS rings

MS Rotterdam is very satisfied with Pronomar MERUS rings

In May and June 2014 Pronomar installed 4 MERUS rings on the MS Rotterdam at various applications in the kitchen, such as the dishwashers and the piping of the kitchen. Following very satisfying results, Holland America Line (HAL) decided to order 2 additional MERUS rings on-board. The rings were installed on below mentioned applications: • 2 x ½” IND ring in the wellness area for the steam generators One of the benefits of the MERUS rings is less and easier maintenance of the technical equipment on-board, such as the steam generators. Another benefit is that the lifespan of the machinery will be prolonged, because the troublesome substances from scaling or corrosion will be softened and flushed away with the water.

Merus ring for Basic fit fitness clubs

28 Basic-Fit Belgium locations were equipped with MERUS rings

Following promising results of (earlier) installations in April 2014 at Basic-Fit Brussels Madou and Waterloo, Basic-Fit Belgium gave an order to equip 28 other locations with the environment-friendly Pronomar – MERUS ring. The rings were installed by Pronomar during a so called “tour through Flanders and Wallonia” in December 2014. The industrial MERUS rings that are installed for the benefit of the main and hot water supply vary from ¾” to 1½”. The difference in sizes is a result of the structure of the piping in each Basic-Fit building. The scaling problems, which affect showers, faucets and floors, are hard to clean and lead to high costs. With the MERUS ring the scaling becomes softer, is easier to flush away
