Heading: water
Has anybody experience in the use of magnetic water on concrete?
Is it possible to obtain higher slump values on the concrete using magnetic water?
Has somebody a magnetic probe installed on his plant?
Can you suggest me some reliable magnetic probes?

Best regards

About a year ago i was passed a project brief from a company which made this equipment and claimed to have an exclusive supply agreement with Cemex Spain.
They presented extensive detail about the electrosus process which reduces the water particle size which in turn resulted in higher workabilities and a reduction / elimination for the need of a water reducing admix.
At the time my company did not want me to pursue it but I am trying to get back into this now.
The info was quite conclusive and the principle sound, just in its infancy in proof.

This is an absolutely new development to me and I am very keen to hear more about it. It does sound highly unlikely but, like iCrete, if it is proven to be correct it could be very important. Will the developers please come forward, identify themselves and tell us more?

Stewart,Thanks a lot for the reply.
Can you give me please contact informations about the company that provides the magnetic probes?

Best regards

A German company FML Concretec ( is promoting/selling colloidal mixing technology/equipment where magnetic water treatment is an integral part of the system. They published very impressive results.

In the patented FML-Concretec processing method, the first step is to break the water down into individual molecules applying physical methods and thus changing the surface tension. Then the reagents (cement and additives, if necessary) are mixed in a special mixing unit (suspension mixer) at high speed and under high energy input, the binding material particles are partly broken down in size and the agglomeration is prevented.

Then the non-reactive aggregates (gravel and sand or respective substitutes) are “mixed in” in the existing mixer or directly in the concrete transport truck (in-transit mixer). This requires only a small amount of energy.

This considerably reduces the costs for cement and additives (plasticizers, super-plasticizers etc.) and allows optimization of the use of aggregates (gravel, crushed stone, sand). In addition, the concrete quality is improved (e.g. improved compressive strength, bending tensile strength and fluidity), in some cases even significantly, while maintaining the currently customary ratio of components. The FML-Concretec mixing method additionally reduces the particle size of the binding material, permitting the use of lower-quality cement (32.5 instead of 42.5) and thus saving costs.

I am a 15 yr. distributor for GMX International, a US company and product for magnetic fluid treatment equipment. Our product is used for wide variety of hard water treatment/ lime-scale control applications. It has been used for concrete. Water treated this way has lower surface tension,, thus mixes more readily, allowing batches to be mixed using less water, then drying harder. A batch plant operator in KS, USA reported to me better test values. I encourage anyone to contact Mr. Reinecke. I would also provide any information if our product would prove helpful. In addition to quality of your concrete, our equipment in a plant would control lime-scale deposits in pipes, boilers, etc. Our equipment can also improve efficiency of gasoline, deisel, fuel oil, LP gas, and natural gas by 10 - 20 %.

We also provide a product that has the ability to lower surface tension as well as viscosity. email me on to arrange for trial.
