The Physics Behind Kiko Water Systems
Kiko Water Systems proprietary cartridges use kinetic energy to alter HVAC water in order to make HVAC operations as efficient as possible. Using our cartridges in both open and closed water loops will reduce the overall energy consumption of all of the equipment that is associated with the affected water loops in a building or facility. Once our cartridges are exposed to water they reduce the surface tension of water, improve thermal exchange, weaken hydrogen bonding between H₂O molecules and lower the Specific Heat Capacity of water. Laboratory testing shows a significant reduction of the Specific Heat Capacity of Water samples our technology has been applied to.
When HVAC equipment is being used to inject or extract heat from water loops, a lot of the energy delivered to the water is absorbed by the hydrogen bonds between H₂O molecules as water has the highest Specific Heat Capacity of any liquid. This means that water can absorb a lot of energy before that energy causes the temperature of the water to change. This is why it takes a long time for a pot of water to boil or why a body of water doesn’t cool down drastically overnight when the sun goes down.
When our cartridges are exposed to water, the hydrogen bonding between molecules is weakened and the Specific Heat Capacity of water is lowered. This creates an environment that results in HVAC equipment being able to achieve the same heating or cooling task than before our cartridges were installed but with less output and demand. This increases equipment capacity and lowers energy consumption.
