Water treatment:
ScaleAway Algae-Go is an ndustrial strength algaecide used in industrial cooling water systems for water cooling towers, water chillers, industrial water reservoirs and process water system flushing and cleaning.

ScaleAway Algae-Go is a broad-spectrum biocide that controls algae, bacteria and fungi that commonly occur in open cooling tower waters. Algae and biomasses that form in these systems can block water flow and reduce the efficiency of cooling tower systems.

Water Cooling Towers: Prior to the use of this product in water cooling towers, clean the systems to remove algal growth, microbiological slime, and other deposits.

Disinfectant, detergent, sanitizer:
Due to its properties of non-toxic, non-tainting, non-corrosive, non-staining, ScaleAwayAlgae-Go is the main active ingredient in the formulation of disinfectants and bactericidal sanitisers for personal hygiene, healthcare, agriculture and food supply.
ScaleAway Algae-Go can be safely incorporated into hygiene products so as to enhance both penetration and removal of soil and surfaces disinfection.

Pharmaceutical & cosmetic:
Due to its safety, ScaleAwayAlgae-Go is widely used in a range of leave-on skin sanitisers manufactured and distributed by ChemCodd.
ScaleAway Algae-Go is widely used as a preservative in formulations for household, industrial and commercial cleaning products.

Horticulture & household:
ScaleAway Algae-Go is highly effective against mould, mildew, moss, fungi & algae and is used for cleaning and preparation of all types of surfaces like greenhouses, roofing, paths, wooden decking, sheds, masonry.

ScaleAway Algae-Go can reduce antibiotic requirement in aquaculture through improved hygiene.
ScaleAway Algae-Go is used for water treatment, fish parasite removal, general site disinfection and infectious disease prevention in fish & shellfish.

Timber protection:
ScaleAway Algae-Go displays excellent fungicidal and algaecidal properties, and is highly effective against other organisms in combination formulations.

Pulp & paper industry:
ScaleAwayAlgae-Go can be used as a general microbicide for slime control & odour management in pulp mills. It improves paper handling and imparts strength & antistatic properties to paper products.

Textile industry:
ScaleAway Algae-Go can be used to protect natural fibres from mould and fungi and as a moth repellent. It also acts as a permanent retarder in the dyeing of acrylic fibres with cationic dyestuffs.

Leather industry:
ScaleAway Algae-Go inhibits growth of mould & mildew on hides and facilitates softening, wetting & dyeing of leather.

Oil & Gas:
ScaleAway Algae-Go:
      Control sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) activities in oil well, Avoid pitting of steel equipment and pipelines.
      Control SRB and aviod oil well souring and the liberation of toxic H2S gas.
      Used in water flooding for enhanced oil recovery through de-emulsification and sludge breaking.

Recommended Dosage
Cooling Towers & Water Reservoirs
Slug dose into the sump of water cooling tower with 10 litres of ScaleAway Algae-Go to 1000 litres or water for initial algae control, thereafter maintain at 1% of make-up water being added to the reservoir or cooling tower.
The frequency of addition depends upon the relative amount of blow-down and the severity of the microbiological problem.

Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic
Use as required by product formulation (1%-5% concentration)

Horticulture & Household:
Use at full strength to remove existing mold, mildew and algae.
For surface wash or spary dilute to 20%-30% with water in a bucket or sprayer and apply.

The use concentration will depend on the particular application and the required degree of antimicrobial activity.

This product can be used together with other fungicidal such as isothiazolinones, glutaraldegyde, dithionitrile methane for synergism, but cannot be used together with chlorophenols.
No blending with anion surfactant.

Can be dosed continuously or slug dosed.
Can be dosed directly from the drum or other suitable container.

ScaleAway Algae-Go can be used in conjunction with most other water treatment products, but should not be dosed into the same line as other products as this may lead to chemical reactions and blockages in the line.
