Non-distilled water contains mineral salts,of which those of calcium and magnesium in particular, form scale. The tendency to form scale is increased when the water comes in contact with hot surfaces. Scale formation in process equipment causes billions of dollars in lost revenues due to equipment down time, increased power consumption and maintenance cost associated with scale removal. Ultimate industrial Descaler provides a quick and simple method for bringing scaled process equipment back into service.
Ultimate Industrial Descaler is a water-based solvent containing wetting agents, corrosion inhibitors and degreasing compounds.It is designed to penetrate and remove encrusted lime scale, rust, corrosion products and dirt from water-wetted surfaces in process equipment. Ultimate Industrial Descaler can also be used to remove lime scale in commercial and industrial applications.
With a pleasant citrus-lime fragrance that masks the obnoxious odors normally associated with dissolving water scale and corrosion, Ultimate Industrial Descaler changes from a pale yellow color to a vivid bluish-purple color whenit is spent. It is low-foaming and quickly releases the carbon dioxide(CO2) gas generated by the reaction of lime scale with Ultimate
Why use Ultimate Industrial Descaler? The formation of scale in process equipment increasespressure drop, requiring more pumping horse-power to maintain volumetricthroughput. Heat transfer surfaces gradually become fouled and thermalefficiencies decrease. Pieces of scale attach themselves to rotating equipment,i.e., pumps and mixers, and cause bearing failure . If these problemssound familiar, then you know why you need to periodically clean thelime scale and rust out of the system with Ultimate Industrial Descaler.
Ultimate Industrial Descaler provides an excellent method to clean equipment withoutexpensive disassembly . In many applications, the cleaning can beaccomplished while the system is in operation . Ultimate Industrial Descaler can removescale in small, inaccessible places that cannot otherwise be cleaned.
Why does Ultimate Industrial Descaler change color? Ultimate Industrial Descaler comes in apale yellow color that changes to a deep bluish-purple color when itis spent . There are four important advantages to this color change:
You know when the solution is spent and should be discarded.
You don't spend time circulating a spent solution.
The color change occurs at a pH of 5 .8 to 6 .0 which is well within the safe disposal range of most of the current governmental waste water regulations.
If the equipment is clean and Ultimate industrial descaler has not changed color, youcan save it and use it again
Where is Ultimate Industrial Descaler used? Ultimate Industrial Descaler is especiallydesigned to safely remove lime deposits or water scale from:
Power plant boilers and piping systems and all types of evaporating equipment
Equipment in refineries, utility companies, paper mills, chemical plants, foundries, rubber plants and other industries
Food processing plants, meat packing plants and breweries
Sewage disposal plants, water treating facilities and other municipal water handling operations
Any equipment that is water cooled in any manner
Ultimate Industrial Descaler is not recommended for use on aluminum, certainaluminum alloys, zinc (hot dipped galvanized sheet) and alloys of magnesium . It is recommended that test samples of materials in question be evaluated in the laboratory before using Ultimate industrial Descalerto treat lime or water scale deposits on these materials.
Concentrated Ultimate Industrial Descaler solution may discolor some chromed andstainless steel surfaces. It is recommended that Ultimate Industrial Descaler bediluted 1:1 with water before using on these surfaces.
Application . Ultimate Industrial Descaler is most effectively used by circulatingthrough the equipment to be cleaned . When possible, circulation shouldbe up-flow Ultimate Industrial Descaler can also be used by filling the equipment tobe cleaned and allowing it to set until scale has disappeared, The cleaningoperation normally takes two to six hours. The equipment should be ventedat all times since carbon dioxide gas evolves during the disassociation ofthe lime scale .
