Key Features and Benefits
Application and Dosage
- Silica Removal With Ease : Silica is amongst the most hard deposit and difficult to remove from heat exchanger like condenser tubes and boiler tubes. Chemtex’s Silica Scale Remover makes silica and silicate deposit removal very easy.
- Inbuilt Corrosion Inhibition : Chemtex’s Silica Scale Remover is inhibited for corrosion protection of system metallurgy.
- Compatibility : Chemtex’s Silica Scale Remover is compatible with other acidic descalant compounds, which makes it easier to removal all scale deposits in one step of descaling.
Chemtex’s Silica Scale Remover is added with other descalants in the ratio of 20%-40% w/w of acidic descalant or 2-10% w/v of the total water hold up volume. The solution is then re-circulated into the heat exchanger or boiler tubes for prescribed duration. After the descaling is complete drain out the descaling solution and passivate the system to avoid flash rusting with ALSTA SCALE PS20 (liquid) or PASSIRINSE (powder).
