A report from Purdue University reporting their findings on the effectiveness of extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic (EM) radiation as an effective method for the control of zebra mussels.
A letter describing a summer field test of Ener-Tec Inc’s biofouling control device and gives the biomass results from the Ener-Tec test line.
After installing an LKC unit US Steel discovered that the section of the plant using the Ener-Tec LKC System was not only free of scale but was also free of Zebra Mussels as well, while the rest of the plant was still experiencing the zebra mussel problems.

A 174-mile 16" pipeline running from Houston, TX to Corsicana, TX was continuously losing flow volume due to paraffin buildup within the pipe. After installing the Petro-Flow Electromagnetic Fluid Stabilization System they removed almost 700% less paraffin from the line in only two weeks of use.
Linear Kinetic Cells are available for out of water or underwater installations. Many sizes are in stock and ready for immediate shipment. Those that are not in stock will generally have approximately a one week shipment time.
Chemical treatment requires continuous monitoring, adjusting feed, servicing of feed equipment, handling, and extensive water testing required to maintain proper water chemistry. The LKC System is self monitoring and requires no maintenance.
Safety is the most feared part of using chemical treatment in water systems. There have been many cases of severely burned hands, arms, and faces of persons handling chemicals. The LKC System requires no chemicals. Places to use: The LKC System can be used in any water system. The places of use range from up to 24" main water intakes, to actually putting the cell into a process water pipe line as small as ½”. The LKC System works in any size water system no matter what the size. Each system is designed to fit the need.
The LKC System requires little room for installation since the entire cell is placed directly into the water line, requiring only electrical service. Continuous Treatment: The LKC system operates automatically, 24 hours a day with no assistance or monitoring.
You can normally own an LKC System for less than it costs to operate a chemical system for one year. OEM Services: Ener-Tec, Inc. maintains a qualified engineering staff experienced in assisting staff engineers in solving their scale control problems.
