Epochem descaler is a chemical for removing lime scale (a deposit of calcium carbonate) from metallic surfaces.
Descaling agents are typically acidic compounds such as hydrochloric acid that react with the alkaline carbonate compounds present in the scale, producing carbon dioxide gas and a soluble salt. Strongly acidic descaling agents are often corrosive to the eyes and skin.
A scale is a coating or precipitate deposited on surfaces that are in contact with water. Water that contains carbonates or bicarbonates of calcium or iron oxide is especially likely to cause scale. When water is heated or evaporation takes place, scale minerals precipitate in layers of rock-like deposits like pipes, water heaters, equipment, fixtures and glassware. While most common scale is a result of calcium carbonate, other combinations of ions commonly found in water offer a variety of scale.
Epochem Descaler is a highly active cleaning agent and a special film forming inhibitor which protects carbon steel, copper and brass against acid attack. It allows for a better cleaning of machinery, especially heat exchangers, because often the scale is mixed up with silica and other contaminants. Epochem Descaler reduces corrosion on metals, cuts through and loosens up other materials mixed with the scale for faster and more thorough cleaning. It has the lowest corrosive rate in the market, as it does not pit, erode or have any harmful effect on steel, iron, copper, plastic, PVC, titanium, metals and materials. In addition, it does not damage metals or materials found in water-cooled systems or equipment. Epochem Descaler is a blend of non-volatile acids, corrosion inhibitors, emulsifiers and dispersing agents. It effectively removes rust, scale from metal and concrete surfaces. This product is an excellent all around acid based cleaner with a combination of acid inhibiting properties. In use, It’s dissolving action on rust and scale is fast and thorough. Its acid formulation dissolves lime scale and rust right down to the base metal or concrete with the selective inhibitor protecting metal surfaces. This solution can be safely handled by personnel’s, and circulated through your equipment or system without arduous and costly dismantling. In some cases, your equipment or system may continue to operate during cleaning. Coupled with the solution’s biodegradability for easy and safe disposal in normal plant sewers, most cleaning applications can be completed within a few hours, making Epochem Descaler one of the fastest-acting industrial descalers in the market.
