    I have used something similar that sent a pulse/vibration through the beer lines preventing adhesion. It had been developed by Chili's to reduce waste. It did seem to work but was not called an ionizer.

      after further research i have found that its a damn electro-magnet. not very powerful either. Im notso sure that it acually works.

        Absolute baloney

        I've seen a few different versions of this piece of junk, all backed up with sciencey talk, and in some cases, sloppily designed "case studies". Clean your lines as per industry standards, and force the jerks that sell this stuff to get a real job.

          This unit can also be used to improve the gas mileage of your vehicle... and will work just as well at that (as in, not at all). It's psuedoscientific junk. Pure, 100% hokum.

          Liquids are amorphous. They cannot hold a magnetic moment.

          Consult the ABA Draught Beer Quality Manual (Google it--it's free) for proper cleaning procedures. These are industry-standard protocols, tested and developed over many years--and don't include magnets.

            Re-visit in-line Ionizer System

            I wanted to see if anyone has used TAKK’s Model 5860 In-line Ionizer for canning lines. My plan is to go through a sterile filter after the Ionizer just before the twist rinse. This is just for air no liquid.
