Monastery St. Florian trusts in AQUABION® lime and corrosion protection

The well-known Monastery in St. Florian switches to a sustainable and effective solution against lime and corrosion problems, which is no easy undertaking within century old walls.

In the world-famous Monastery in St. Florian, which dates back to the baroque period, great problems had to be solved due to the more than 30 years old galvanized pipelines. The pipes, which were affected by internal corrosion, struggled with the highly calciferous water with 18°dH, which is prevalent in the region, resulting in typical lime deposits within the pipes as well as the bathroom and kitchen areas.

After visiting and analysing the building and its special needs, our experts recommended the installation of the AQUABION® AB-H40 as well as the AB-H25. The two systems were installed as a parallel connection in the central cold water pipe for the entire pen directly after the air reservoir.

The provost of the Monastery, Mr. Johann Holzinger, states: “We are really satisfied with the AQUABION® lime and corrosion protection system by the Rabmer Group. The water in Sankt Florian is very calcareous. Therefore, we have always struggled with lime deposits as well as problems with rusty water due to the old galvanized pipes. In February 2019 we decided to install the AQUABION® in the main water pipe of our Monastery. Since then we no longer have any kind of calcification or rusty water. The limescale can be removed easily. Another positive aspect is nothing has changed regarding the taste of the water, it still tastes very good.”

It can be stated that the AQUABION® is a great alternative to conventional decalcification systems, also for older and worthy objects, as it solves already existing problems inside the pipes and protects against new ones.
