A little history...

RIME SARL(Réalisations Industrielles Mécaniques et Electroniques) was formed in 1975. The company manufactures thermal modules and also does welding and press stamping sub-contracting work.
In 1977, the company worked with Clément-Daniel, manufacturing and marketing electronic anti-scaling systems using the CLEMENT-DANIEL process, which was then a new process that combats scaling by electrical discharges in the water.
In 1979, RIME diversified its activities by taking over the assets of Ets. TARDITTI (light alloy castings, electrical pressure cookers, coffee machines).
In 1987, RIME SA launched an electronic anti-scaling product line, using the RIMEAU process, which was a significant development of the Clément-Daniel process, based on the induction of a pulsed electrical field in the water.
RIME SA was gradually taken over by COMAP, between 1988 and 1993 (100%).
In 1992, RIME won a major analysis/design contract concerning the scaling of packing inside the cooling towers of nuclear power stations, for the French electricity authority (EDF).
Following its takeover by COMAP, RIME SA mainly concentrates on the manufacture and distribution of water treatment systems, and gradually ceased its sub-contracting work.

Since then, many new product lines have been developed
