Descaling Calcium Sulphate

Calcium sulphate is a common component of fouling deposits in industrial heat exchangers, because its solubility decreases with increasing temperature.

The internal surfaces of water heat exchangers are in contact with water to produce heat transfer. Water used for heat transfer inevitably contains dissolved solids due to inefficient water purification processes. Some salts (e.g. calcium sulphate and calcium carbonate salts) decrease solubility at higher temperature and hence deposit (scale) on the exchanger surface. The scale & deposits in heat transfer tubes are generally non-metallic and therefore possess low thermal conductivity, which impedes transfer of heat and thereby affects the efficiency of the heat transfer equipment. Periodic cleaning of the exchangers is mandatory for an optimal thermal efficiency. Various methods for descaling are available and are used standalone or in combinations. Chemical cleaning is frequently employed for cleaning complex exchanger surfaces. Since the scale compositions vary depending on many factors, a solution has to be customized for specific applications.

Calcium Sulphate Descaler
Calcium sulphate scale is insoluble in water. Calcium sulphate scale is soluble in diluted solutions of ScaleAway773TM. Calcium scale can be removed using a 5-15% solution of ScaleAway773TM. Scale is removed at a much slower rate than ScaleAwaySFATM for calcium carbonate scale, thus descaling of calcium sulphate scale needs to be kept under control with constant management using standard CIP systems.

Stable and Odourless
Under working conditions, ScaleAway773TM solutions remain stable, however at elevated temperatures, ScaleAway773TM can decompose. Under working conditions and temperatures up to the boiling point, ScaleAway773TM solutions remain stable.

Less Corrosive
Solutions of ScaleAway773TM are less corrosive and require lower and retain excellent scale removing efficiency. Solutions of ScaleAway773TM may be used on stainless steel (304 or 316 up to boiling temperatures) without corrosion inhibitors, while typical industrial inhibitors like ScaleAwayPPETM at low concentrations, can be used in mild steel applications. Comparable inhibitors for ScaleAwaySFATM require higher concentrations for adequate protection.

Won't Chelate
ScaleAway773TM does not chelate, therefore, metal redepositing is not an issue with ScaleAway773TM.
