(57) Abstract

A process of conditioning a fluid includes passing the fluid through a magnetic field. A fluid conditioning system includes a conduit adapted to allow fluid to pass from a pre-conditioned volume to a post-conditioned volume, and a magnet assembly including at least one magnet disposed such that magnetic field produced by the at least one magnet penetrates the conduit. The conduit is formed from a material that allows the magnetic field produced by the at least one magnet to have a magnetic effect on molecules of the fluid as the fluid passes through the conduit.
