The best method for mitigating the challenges of lime is preventing limescale deposits from forming in pipelines from the beginning. Specialized water treatment for decalcifying drinking water in advance is expensive and requires frequent maintenance, depending on the size of the property. Alternatively, the patented lime management of the Condair RS offers an effective, hygienic, and easy-to-use solution for limescale deposits and doesn't require prior water decalcification treatment for room humidification. Limescale deposits are prevented here by automatically directing the minerals found in the steam cylinder into a special collection container called a scale collector tank. This scale collector is accessible and easy to empty. Maintenance for this system is therefore minimal and is only required on the RS device itself.
Since resistance heaters operate independently of the conductivity of the humidifying water, both treated water and drinking water containing lime can be used. Even with hard water of more than 2.5 mmol calcium carbonate/l and more than 14° dH, such humidifier systems work reliably and ensure optimum room humidity with manageable maintenance requirements that prevent deposits in the piping system.
