Products/Applications

The LKC System is an effective and proven means of scale control for all types of commercial and industrial applications including cooling towers, boilers, air compressors, ice machines, heat exchangers, hot water heaters, and many more applications.

The LKC has been having tremendous success in the oil industry by keeping paraffin buildup from happening in pipes as well as for oil/water separation.

  • Non-Chemical
  • Non-Restricted Flow
  • Low Operating Cost
  • No Maintenance
  • Little Space Requirement
  • Non-Polluting
  • Fast Return On Investment
  • Prevents And Removes Buildup

After an LKC installation at US Steel, they 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. Since then we have had several LKC installations to remove zebra mussels with great success.

The astonishing success in the petrochemical industry prompted utilization of the LKC in many industrial and agricultural applications. The plastics industry has benefited in pneumatically handling polymer pellets in both production and process facilities. Agriculture can utilize the Ener-Tec Static Dissipator in grain elevators and flour mills. The baking industry has applied it to the pneumatic transfer of flour to eliminate static buildup and clogging lines.

The LKC Swimming Pool/Spa Treatment System reduces the amount of chemicals needed to treat your equipment by around 30% as well as increase the life of your pump, filter, plumbing, and water heater.

The LKC home unit eliminates scale buildup in your plumbing as well as making the water feel softer from lowering the surface tension. You will also eliminate mineral stains, increase filtration with filters, and even improve your garden if it is attached to a pipe that's watering it.

Ener-Tec's has recently discovered great benefits from using an LKC Treatment System on gas lines in cars, trucks, semi trucks, airplanes, etc. Some benefits include:

  • Reduces buildup in the engine.
  • Increases power
  • Increases your miles per gallon
  • Increases the life of your engine

We are currently doing research on the effects of an LKC on natural gas lines and the effects and benefits of this installation. Please contact us for further information.

The Linear Kinetic Cell can be custom built for any size and style of an application.

We have found that the LKC unit not only removes scale and paraffin buildup, but also benefits many other applications including sewage or lagoon treatment, ice making, vacuum pumps, spray booths, plating, irrigation, increased plant growth, laundries, and many others.

Availability

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.

Labor

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

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.

Space

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.

Expenditure

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.
