The Total pipe solution

  • Prevents and removes existing rust, scale, slime, and biofilm in water pipes.

  • Prevents corrosion, thus averting lead or other toxic compounds from leaching into water from pipes.

  • Sterilizes water and noticeably improves water’s taste and feel.

  • Keeps water pipes clean, drastically increasing their efficiency and prolonging their lifespan.

  • Prevents leakage in new pipes, and minimizes leakage from older pipes with existing leaks.

  • Converts some of the rust in iron-based pipes into magnetite ore, coating the pipe internal that strengthens and potentially more than doubles its lifespan.

  • Kills bacteria by breaking down its cell wall.

  • Prevents Legionella pneumophila and E. coli bacteria contamination.

  • Improves water absorption by breaking down water clusters into smaller sizes

Introducing a game changer in water pipe protection

What is IOREX? 

IOREX is a:

  • WATERPIPE PROTECTOR: It prevents leakage in new pipes as well as minimizes and prevents further leakage from older pipes with existing leaks.

  • SCALE & RUST BUILD-UP REMOVER: It prevents and removes existing rust, scale, and slime in any type of pipe system, and can be installed on any size pipe (from 1/2" to 36").

  • BIOFILM REMOVER: It keeps water pipes clean, drastically increasing efficiency and extending pipe lifespan.

  • BACTERIA ELIMINATOR: It sterilizes water by breaking down the cell wall of bacteria (including Legionella bacteria) and, therefore, makes water safer.

  • SCALE, RUST, & SLIME BUILD-UP PREVENTOR: It prevents corrosion, thus averting lead or other toxic chemicals from leaching into the water as it passes through pipes.

IOREX does NOT:

  • Require lengthy installation process. IOREX can be installed in just hours.

  • Need any maintenance, filters or chemicals.

  • Use any electricity. It is a self-operating, energy-neutral system.

  • Need to be replaced periodically. It is effective for at least 25 years.

  • Require any corrosion inhibitors whatsoever.

Process


Process


Formation of Rust: 

  • Rust (ferric oxide; Fe2O3) is formed by the oxidation of iron
  • Iron (Fe) in metal loses electrons (2e-) within the pipe wall and to oxygen (O2) dissolved in passing water (H2O)
  • The resulting ferrous (Fe2+) ion loses an additional electron to hydroxide (OH-)
  • Two resulting ferric (Fe3+) ions form bonds with three oxygens resulting in ferric oxide (rust) on the surface of metal

Formation of Scale

  • Scale is the deposition of metal ions (such as manganese Mn2+; iron, Fe2+; magnesium, Mg2+; and calcium, Ca2+) and non-metals, (such as nitrogen sodium Na) in water
  • High concentrations of ions, changes in pH, and variations of water temperature can cause dissolved metals and non-metals to combine and precipitate (salt out) onto the interior pipe surface

Prevention and Removal of Rust:

  • Static electricity is generated by friction between flowing water and a special carbon electrode – electrons are transferred to water
  • Water is thus ionized
  • Electron losses by iron within pipe wall are stabilized – Fe is not oxidized to Fe2+
  • Full rust protection within 4 weeks after installation. Existing rust is also reduced with use over time.

Prevention and Removal of Scale:

  • Scale-forming particles change structure due to an adjusted chemical and ionic environment created by the device

  • Turbulence and an electric double-layer promote formation of orbicular particles that flow smoothly through plumbing without sticking

  • The ionically-charged water exiting the IOREX device gradually dissolves and dislodges existing scale from the pipe’s inner surface

Benefits


Benefits


Consumers have started to question the quality of the water they drink and the pipes through which it flows to their tap. Globally, water pipes, and drinking and waste water infrastructures have been under a spotlight in recent years. Upgrading systems or replacing pipes is an immediate need.

IOREX is an innovative water and pipe treatment device that utilizes the flow of water to actually clean and maintain water pipes rather than corrode them. It removes and prevents biofilm formation and kills any bacteria present in water. This allows building and property owners, organizations, and municipal water management bodies to stop wasting fiscal resources on maintenance, controversial chemical treatments, descaling, pipe lining or pipe replacement.

IOREX installation requires no maintenance, uses no chemicals, and requires no external power source. It can be used in any home, building or facility water pipe system, and can be installed in just a few hours on any pipe size from 1/2” to 36” in diameter.

Savings


Savings


IOREX avoids the costliness of pipe lining or replacement and eliminates the need for chemicals and corrosion inhibitors. Installation on the main water line is easy, avoids broken walls, can be done within a few hours, and requires no ongoing maintenance.

Compared to current methods that can take months of labor and require invasive work and extensive costs, IOREX may seem like a “magic fix.” It is simply the next generation of prevention and treatment of water pipes and what the world needs right now.

  • Savings # 1 - Water pipe cleaning expense: Eliminate pipe jetting.

  • Savings #2 - Chemical corrosion inhibitors: Once IOREX is installed, there is no need to use any kind of corrosion inhibitors. Data shows that when comparing corrosion inhibitors versus IOREX alone, IOREX exhibited far better results in terms of corrosion prevention in water pipes.

  • Savings #3 - Heating cost: By improving heat transfer efficiency through reducing scale and rust build-up, between 1 to 5% of energy consumption can be saved.

  • Savings #4 - Maintenance: Once IOREX is installed, no additional or periodic maintenance is necessary.

  • Savings #5 - Energy: Unlike other water system products, IOREX is energy-neutral and does NOT require an external power source to operate, so there are NO hidden costs associated with IOREX.

  • Savings #6 - Water softening: Since IOREX has a softening effect on water without compromising the mineral content of water or wasting it the way traditional softeners do. Therefore, you can avoid purchasing a water softener altogether.

  • Savings #7 - Future pipe repair and replacement: With IOREX, you can dramatically extend the lifespan of your water pipes and alleviate pinhole leaks.
