Abstract
Initial stage of nucleation of corrosive and scalling agents drives chemical reactions to a certain direction, with sound environmental, technological and economical impact. It is affected besides chemical bonding between building and catalyzing atomic blocks on additional factors, such as the presence of electromagnetic fields (EMF) during initial stage of nucleation and initial state of atoms (energy, momentum, state of flow). The project is aiming to prevent scalling and corrosion in water flow systems. The initial stage of nucleation and crystalization of precipitates deposited on the surfaces of the flow systems (e.g.pipes) will be described. We will apply for the first time ab-initio quantum mechanical calculations describing nucleation, together with quantum electrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamic in flow systems in the presence of EMF. Prototype device will be designed and build for avoiding scalling and corrossion in flow systems based only on controlling and modifying the physical parameters of the flow system, (state of flow, EMF, etc). Application of the methods on a wide industrial scale will prevent the use of harmful anticorrossion and antiscalling chemicals. While this method is widely used in USA and Japan in large scale industrial and other applications, Europe is lucking behind in both research and applications.
