Heat exchange equipment set up at wood processing plants are cooled by water drawn from natural open reservoirs, with the result that a scum forms on the surface of the equipment. Since the scum has lower thermal conductivity than the metal exchanger, the retention of specified temperature conditions in the equipment requires the repumping of large quantities of water. Described briefly are experiments showing that when water is passed through the plane of a magnetic field, its hardness salts lose their ability to settle on the surface of equipment.
