Scale removal

Published on: 

Scale removal is an important maintenance activity on heat exchangers and other industrial water handling equipment. Over time, calcium carbonate from hard water builds up on the surfaces of pipes and heat exchangers, reducing water flow and heat-transfer efficiency. Harsh minerals and organic acids like muriatic acid are sure to solve the problem quickly but pose safety hazards due to high corrosivity.

To achieve fast-acting scale removal on a safer level, Cortec has introduced EcoClean Scale and Rust Remover HP, which competes with some of the safer fastest-acting products on the market. It is an industrial strength product to periodically clear away scale buildup on all water-contacting equipment surfaces in a variety of industrial systems. It also removes corrosion on multiple metal types and contains powerful corrosion inhibitors to counteract the aggressiveness of acids on metals.
