AQUABION® Success Story - Limescale and corrosion protection in the largest student residence in Linz

Rabmer GreenTech can point to another successful reference for the patented AQUABION® limescale and corrosion protection. Around six months ago, it was installed in the water pipe system of the largest student residence in Linz, the Julius Raab Heim with around 600 rooms.

The main problems with this project were existing corrosion problems, which could not be solved despite the use of chemical dosing devices, and water pressure problems on the upper floors, which were caused by limescale deposits in the pipes despite the use of ion exchangers.

Together with the Linz-based plumbing company Laban, the water pipe network in the main building and the adjoining building was analyzed at the end of 2016 and the complete conversion to the chemical-free AQUABION® system was prepared. The time had come at the beginning of February: within a few hours, the existing ion exchangers and chemical dosing stations were dismantled and replaced with the corresponding AQUABION devices in the cold and hot water pipes.

Today - 6 months later - Julius Raab Heim Managing Director Seiringer Peter is convinced that he made the right decision: "By installing the AQUABION®, we have finally solved the problem with rusty water and are also saving on the ongoing operating costs for salt, dosing agents and lower water consumption. It's also amazing that the water pressure on the upper floors has already increased again after a relatively short time thanks to the excellent limescale protection effect of the AQUABION®!"

Alfred Laban, owner of the well-known Linz-based installation company and responsible for project implementation on site, is also enthusiastic about AQUABION®: "We have implemented several AQUABION® projects together with Rabmer in recent years and have always completely satisfied our customers. Regardless of whether the problem was corrosion or limescale - the AQUABION® always works reliably and has the decisive advantage that it works completely without chemicals. This means that the water retains its original taste and is not negatively affected in terms of its corrosive behavior. This has once again proved its worth in this project!"

We are delighted that we were once again able to demonstrate the outstanding effectiveness of our AQUABION® with this project.
