Adjustable magnetic water treatment system

Water treatment abstract


A water treatment system is described comprising a first water line in communication with a source of water at one end and a water filter on the other. An alternating current magnetic means is imposed with the first water line so that water flowing therethrough will be subjected to the magnetic field thereof. A second water line extends from the water filter to a water outlet means. A direct current magnet means is imposed in the second water line so that water flowing therethrough will be subject to the magnetic field thereof. The magnet means are comprised of coils imposed in a housing, a first shaft extends through the coil and is adjustably secured to the housing. The inner end of the shaft terminates in a plate means which is normally positioned adjacent inlet and outlet openings in the housing. A second shaft means is adjustably secured to the housing and its inner end terminates in a plate means which is oppositely disposed from the first mentioned plate means. The adjustable positions of the plate means influence the mechanical vibrations imposed on the water flowing from the inlet opening to the outlet opening.

Water treatment description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Water systems have heretofore been influenced by electromagnetic means for purposes of improving the quality of the water therein. Some of these electromagnetic means have been operated by either alternating current or direct current. However, the water systems using magnetic means have only partially treated the water therein and as a result, have not created an absolutely clean and purified water system.

This invention discloses the use of both an alternating current and a direct current magnetic system on opposite sides of a filter means in a water system. The alternating current magnetic means have a vibrating affect on the water which breaks down the particles in the water, kills bacteria, and polarizes the water molecules. The alternating current magnetic means is very effective in breaking down particles in the water such as lime, etc.

The direct current magnetic means effectively polarizes the particles in the water which best effectively serves in "descaling" the pipes. This is accomplished by keeping the particles in suspension. When the particles are kept in suspension, they are not absorbed by the body when water is consumed.

It is, therefore, a principal object of this invention to provide a water system which uses an alternating current magnetic means to break down the partilces in the water in combination with a direct current magnetic means for polarizing the water.

A further object of this invention is to provide a water system which utilizes alternating current and direct current magnetic means wherein the mechanical vibrating effect of the magnets on the water can be selectively adjusted.

These and other objects will be apparent to those skilled in the art.

A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

A water treatment system is disclosed comprising a first water line communication with a source of water at one end and a water filter on the other. An alternating current magnetic means is imposed in the first water line so that water flowing therethrough will be subjected to the magnetic field thereof. A second water line extends from the water filter to a water outlet means. A direct current magnetic means is imposed in the second water line so that water flowing therethrough will be adjusted to the magnetic field thereof.

The magnetic means are comprised of housing with a magnetic coil mounted therein. Each housing has an inlet and outlet water opening. Oppositely disposed shafts are adjustably secured to the housing and the inner ends thereof terminate in plates which are spaced and which are oppositely disposed. The plates normally are positioned in the proximity of the inlet and outlet water openings.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

The numeral 10 designates a conventional well having a source of water. Inlet line 12 extends from well 10 to a conventional water filter 14. Filter 14 is comprised of a housing 16 which is completely enclosed with top and bottom portions. Inlet line 12 terminates in an inlet tube 18 which extends downwardly through the top of housing 16 and terminates just above the bottom thereof. A screen 20 having a plurality of small apertures therein is secured to the lower end of tube 18. A quantity of solar material, preferably granite (manganese green sand) is located in the bottom of housing 16 and serves to filter the water as it passes upwardly through such material.

An alternating current magnetic device 24 is imposed in inlet line 12 as shown in FIG. 1. An outlet line 26 extends from filter 14 to a pressure tank 28 which is in communication with a water outlet means. Conventional water systems obviously use a pump either at the well or at another location in the water system. The conventional pump has not been shown in FIG. 1.

A direct current magnetic device 30 is imposed in outlet line 26 as shown in FIG. 1. The structure of magnetic devices 24 and 30 are essentially identical, except that the coils thereof are connected to sources of alternating and direct current, respectively.

Each magnetic device 24 and 30 is comprised of an electrically insulating housing 32 having a top 34 and bottom 36. The housing 32 has an inlet opening 38 and an outlet opening 40. An electrical coil 42 is covered with insulation material 44 and is secured by any convenient means to the top 34 of the housing. Watertight terminals 46 extend through top 34 and are in insulated communication with opposite ends of the wire of coil 42.

Bearing caps 48 and 50 are secured to the top 34 and bottom 36, respectively, as best shown in FIG. 2. Shafts 52 and 54, respectively, are threadably inserted through bearing caps 48 and 50. Shafts 52 and 54 have their inner ends secured to plates 56 and 58, respectively. Each plate, as best shown in FIG. 3, is comprised of a flat portion 60 with angular perimeter flange portions 62.

In the normal operation of the device of this invention, the shafts 52 and 54 can be selectively, threadably adjusted in bearing caps 48 and 50, respectively, to adjust the space between plates 60. In the case of the alternating current magnetic device 24, the shafts 52 and 54 pick up vibrations from the housing 32 which are in turn received from the pulsating, alternating current magnetic coil 42. The intensity of the vibrations carried by shaft 52 and imposed on plate 60 is increased as the distance between the plates 60 is decreased. Thus, by varying the distance between plates 60, the vibrational affect on the water passing therethrough can be increased or decreased as desired.

As indicated heretofore, it has been found that the alternating current magnetic device 30 is well adapted to breaking down particles in the water, and the direct current magnetic device 30 is best adapted to polarizing the water and keeping the particles therein in suspension.

From the foregoing, it is seen that the device of this invention will achieve at least its stated objectives.
