About Lockeshire Corp

Found and based in Prince Edward Island of Canada, Lockeshire Corp is committed to serving customers and enhancing their life experiences with innovation and green technology. We always believe these two elements play a main role in improving human lives and companies’ productivities. By offering a brighter and cleaner solution Lockeshire sets us apart from our competition and relevant to our customers’ needs.

It has been said by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato that “Necessity is the mother of Invention”; our solutions will be all problem-solving centric that helps our customers to get their jobs done. Professor Theodore Levitt of Harvard Business School once famously said that people do not want to buy a quarter-inch drill, they just want a quarter-inch hole! It is the deliverables instead of the products that matter.

Albert Einstein is widely credited with saying “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” It is precisely our way to challenge the status quo and explore how things could be done differently; more so in an innovative way to help with our customers to do their jobs and enhance the overall operational effectiveness.

Our Values

Lockeshire is committed to serving our customers by providing access to innovative and eco-friendly technology. We seek to engage our customers and offer a total solution concept from the identification of problems, consultation, recommendations, project implementation & follow-up from their residences to workplace levels.

Our customers can trust us to provide them with quality service to accompany our quality products. By conducting ourselves with honesty and integrity every step of the way, we aim to be a company that clients can respect and trust to take care of their business needs. 

At Lockeshire, we believe that there are many ways that we can make a healthier environment, and we hope to make our contribution to this effort. Products like the Merus Ring serves their functions in an eco-friendly way by reducing build-up in water ways without any chemicals or power consumption whatsoever. Implementing devices such as this into our industries and using them in our own homes can help reduce our carbon footprint and help make the earth healthier again. 

Our Services and Solution

Background

In general, drinking water in Canada is of good quality & safe to consume. Nevertheless water contains not only H2O but also ions, micronutrients, minerals, magnesium and calcium. These are important for human health and should not be removed. However, if these dissolved solids are deposited in the pipes, they will cause problems in households or industries. Thus it is not the water causing the problem but the soluble parts in the water which are responsible for corrosion, rust, lime scale & biofouling.


As soon as the dissolved parts in the water settle in the pipe and forms deposits, this natural process is going to cause issues that would damage the piping systems like below.

Water can carry a certain amount of lime. When it is saturated, the lime settles and forms a hard crust. Lime is found almost everywhere in its dissolved form in water. At home this leaves stains in the bathrooms, appliances and eating utensils. The deposits will also block pipes; lower the efficiency of heat transfer for washing machines & heat exchangers (1mm of lime scale will increase energy costs by 11%); lead to more maintenance, downtime or even failure in equipment.

When the metal of the pipes react with oxygen, corrosion occurs. When we see brown water coming out of the pipes, rust can be seen. In some unfavourable situation where rust caused holes in the metal – this is known as pitting corrosion which may lead to not just blockages but leakages too! As a result, the lifetime of the equipment will be reduced and extensive sanitation measures may be necessary.

Biofilm & biofouling, bacteria & algae are main challenges primarily in industrial water and well water for residential use in the country. With water biomass entering cooling systems, heat exchangers & other water systems, it will form biofilms. Biofilms are microorganisms that can grow on many surfaces.

Microorganisms that form biofilms include bacteria, fungi and protists. One common example of biofilm is dental plaque, a slimy build-up of bacteria on the surfaces of teeth. Biofilms in the pipes can block valves & sensors. Just like lime scale, biofilms also have negative impact on heat transfer. 

Biofouling is the accumulation of microorganisms, plants, algae or small animals on wetted surfaces that have a mechanical function, causing structural or other functional deficiencies.

How MERUS works

The special thing about MERUS Ring is that no chemistry is needed to treat the water. This is ideal for drinking water as well as industrial water. No undesired side effects or environmental damage is to be concerned about. MERUS Ring does change the physical behavior of dissolved ingredients of the water. This may sound a bit complicated but is rather simple.

Changing Oscillations

Water can carry a certain number of foreign particles. If this amount is exceeded, these particles settle and can form a hard crust. One popular example is limescale. It is very important to know how the atoms of water and limescale move or oscillate. If somehow, this movement is changed, the solubility of limescale in water will increase.

The atoms move synchronously, this means that every single atom oscillates just like its neighbor. If a new oscillation is brought into the movement, these two can overlay. This is called interference. Thus, two different oscillations result in one new. The new oscillation that is brought into the fluid intentionally, is called active oscillation

How the oscillation is brought into the fluid?

To bring the oscillation into the fluid a carrier is needed which can maintain and transmit the oscillations. We have developed a ring which needs to be installed around the pipe. No direct contact with the fluid is needed. The oscillations can be transmitted into the fluid through the pipe. An illustrative example for this phenomenon is how music (acoustic waves) is transmitted through the air. You can hear the music coming from a loudspeaker without touching it. With enough volume you can hear it in an adjoining room, through the wall. Just the same is what the MERUS Ring does – it transmits waves or oscillations to the fluid. The interference is a phenomenon used for listening to music. To reduce noise and enhance the sound of the music a concept called “anti-sound” is used.

Superimposing Oscillations – basics

Natural Oscillation, Active Oscillation, Resulting Oscillation
The natural and active oscillation may have the same frequency but opposing amplitudes. 

They are exactly superimposed and therefore cancel each other out. That is why the resulting oscillation lays on the x-axis.

The natural and active oscillation may have same frequency but different amplitudes. (tops and valleys are at the same time)

In such cases, they mutually reinforce each other. Thus, the resulting oscillation has a higher top than the original oscillations.
