New from Steinhardt:
DilliGent® – chemical-free water purification

On 20thNovem­ber 2018 Jür­gen and Thomas Dil­litzer, Com­pa­ny Part­ners of Dil­li­gence Sys­tems, signed a future-ori­ent­ed agree­ment with Jörg Stein­hardt, Man­ag­ing Part­ner of Stein­hardt GmbH, where­by Dil­li­gence Sys­tems shares were tak­en over in their entire­ty by Stein­hardt. This has opened a new field of busi­ness for Stein­hardt in the form of process water treat­ment. Pri­or to the agree­ment, Jür­gen Dil­litzer and Stein­hardt GmbH had already car­ried out exten­sive prod­uct devel­op­ment work and had also reg­is­tered sev­er­al patents. With the Dil­li­Gent® prod­ucts Stein­hardt GmbH now offers a new chem­i­cal-free line for the process water tech­nol­o­gy sec­tor. The inno­v­a­tive units per­form chem­i­cal-free removal of Legionel­la bac­te­ria from water cycles, long-last­ing germ reduc­tion in process and cool­ing water cir­cuits, coolant care, sus­tain­able hygiene in indus­tri­al wash­ing process­es and a chem­i­cal-free bac­te­ria reduc­tion and Legionel­la pre­ven­tion in swim­ming pools.

The inno­v­a­tive Stein­hardt Dil­li­Gent® water purifi­ca­tion sys­tems make effec­tive use of hydro-mechan­i­cal cav­i­ta­tion – the implo­sion of tiny gas bub­bles in flu­ids. The process releas­es pres­sures of up to 500 bar and tem­per­a­tures up to 5,000 °C; bac­te­ria, germs, yeasts and moulds in water are destroyed mechan­i­cal­ly by these forces. Any residues are sus­tain­ably elim­i­nat­ed by nat­ur­al oxidation.

The units can be retro­fit in exist­ing water cir­cuits and are suit­able for either con­tin­u­ous or inter­mit­tent oper­a­tion. Thus, Stein­hardt has become a fore­run­ner in the pro­duc­tion of phys­i­cal water treat­ment sys­tems that pre­vent re-con­t­a­m­i­na­tion and the for­ma­tion of resis­tance long-term and with­out the use of biocides.

A fur­ther pio­neer­ing prod­uct is the ScaleTec phys­i­cal hard­wa­ter sta­bilis­er. Here water flows through a ring-sys­tem of indus­tri­al mag­nets that deters the nat­ur­al cal­ci­um crys­talli­sa­tion process, thus inhibit­ing deposits of limescale in pipework and taps. Exist­ing limescale lay­ers are bro­ken down and new for­ma­tion of limescale pre­vent­ed – with­out chem­i­cals and with­out electricity.
