The MPS System
This is the centrepiece of Hydrotech’s technology. It is a proprietary electro-osmotic system directed at drying out subterranean masonry structures with capillaries, such as concrete and brick, and maintaining them in a permanently dry state. MPS can be used both in new structures and to dry out basements and tunnels that already suffer from a chronic water seepage problem. This is evolutionary technology developed from the long established principles of electro-osmosis which works through a series of low voltage pulsating charges.
Other methods of addressing water seepage in use in the building industry today can be characterised as temporary solutions to a problem for which there has until now been no apparent permanent solution.
Concrete and brick masonry structures consist of a mass containing capillary formations. Water may penetrate structures in a multitude of ways, the simplest form of which is as a result of gravity. Water can also penetrate structures through capillary synthesis, very much in the same way as plants and trees receive and distribute water to smaller branches.
MPS is utilised for transporting water encapsulated within the capillaries out of structures, as well as permanently preventing the penetration of water into structures. A control unit produces a series of low voltage electrical charges which are passed through electrodes in the form of probes or wires strategically placed within portions of the ceilings, walls and floors that are wet.
By placing a low voltage charge between negative and positive electrodes within a structure, the water becomes ionised. Ionising the water molecules within the capillaries causes the water to travel towards the negative electrodes to be evacuated at an optimum site, while at the same time preventing the water from intruding back into the structure. The wet area will quickly dry up and remain dry.
The movement of the ionised water in the capillaries is both stronger than gravity and capillary synthesis. Research has established that this technology is capable of preventing the penetration of water in a high-pressure environment of 600 metres head (60 bars).
