QMS was awarded a two year research grant (1990-1992) funded by the Ben Franklin Fund through Radco Co. The research focused on the effect of steel components to focus and intensify magnetic fields for the design of fluid treatments products. (copy available on request)
Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH
Professor Donald Feke conducted research (1993) on the QMS design to postulate the effect of magnetic fields on water and oil. (copies available on request) QMS has worked with professor Feke through the years to address other specific issues with magnetic fluid treatment.
Independent Engineering Studies

GNL Technologies conducted a one year study at the USPS facility in Cleveland, Ohio on two side by side cooling towers to compare a chemically treated tower with a QMS treated tower. (copy available on request)
Burgess & Niple tested the results of a QMS installation in central Ohio for the removal of arsenic from well water. The QMS system reduced arsenic to below detectable levels (5 parts per billion). (copy available on request)
USPS internal engineering study to evaluate the results of QMS boiler treatment units installed at six locations to eliminate chemical treatments to prevent scale from forming in the boilers. The engineer responsible for these installations was awarded a prestigious "Close the Circle" commendation for the savings realized by the USPS. (copy available on request)
USPS internal engineering study to evaluate the results of QMS HydroPlex installations at USPS facilities. The HydroPlex eliminated bacteria, algae, scale formation, and circulatory particulates. (copy available on request)
Versar Engineering was contracted by Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to find a solution to Legionella contamination of cooling towers. Several company's products were tested on WMATA towers to determine the most effective technology. QMS outperformed all competitors and subsequently was awarded a multi-unit contract to treat all WMATA towers. (copies available on request)
New York Housing Authority engineers conducted a study to quantify the energy savings of QMS steam boiler treatment systems installed at their facilities. The study was conducted before the increase of natural gas costs yet still showed a return on investment of twice the cost of the units in the first year of use.
Riser Foods internal engineering study to quantify the savings of multiple QMS installations on grocery store installations. (copy available on request)
In addition to the foregoing formal studies, QMS has numerous reports from customers for installations on a myriad of equipment in daily use. These reports consistently confirm that the QMS technology will solve complex water treatment problems.
