ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen is a descaler and cleaner for Clean-In-Place systems.
ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen is a non-foaming concentrated acid suitable for the removal of all kinds of scale encountered
in the dairy industry.
Suitable for use in C.I.P. Systems and storage vessels...
ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleenis unperfumed and therefore will not taint.
ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen has been scientifically formulated, to effectively remove milk stone deposits
thereby preventing possible bacterial growth.
ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen is non - foaming and is therefore suitable in all C.I.P. systems.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen should be used after lines have been cleaned with ScaleAwayCIP-ChlorCleen chlorine sanitizer.
ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen may be used once a week at a dilution of 10 - 50 mls per litre depending
on the severity of the scale. In this instance, circulate for 15 - 30 minutes.
Alternatively use ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen on a daily basis in rinse water at a dilution of 1 ml per litre
to prevent scale build up.
Scale Types dissolved and inhibited by ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen concentrate
Inorganic Scale - Alkali earth cations such as calcium and magnesium and inorganic anions such as carbonate and
phosphate are present in virtually all aqueous systems. Their salts form scale that can disrupt many industrial
Dissolving Calcium Carbonate Scale - The equilibrium of the reaction by which scale forms has to be displaced in favour
of the soluble species in order for the scale to dissolve. ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen concentrate has a very high calcium binding power, which
enables it to dissolve existing calcium scale and to prevent new scale from forming
Inhibiting Calcium Carbonate Scale - Phosphonates and water-soluble polymers are often used to prevent calcium carbonate
from precipitating and forming scale. These substances act by temporarily delaying the onset of crystallisation.
Chelating agents such as ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen concentrate act differently, because they prevent salts from precipitating and forming scale
by sequestering the calcium ions.
Dissolving calcium Phosphate Scale - Calcium phosphate also forms scale that is difficult to dissolve. This type of
scale is often encountered in applications in which high concentrations of phosphate are present. Scale often gives rise
to problems in dairies, because milk contains high concentrations of calcium phosphate and this sparingly soluble salt
precipitates when milk is processed.
ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen concentrate is the best choice when it comes to finding a readily biodegradable complexing agent for dissolving calcium
Organic Scale - Calcium stearate and calcium oleate (lime soaps) fatty acids and soaps also react with calcium ions to form soluble
deposits in automated industrial component washing processes and bottle washing processes. Lime, magnesium and heavy metals can form soaps
that precipitate and give rise to spots and stains, dull surfaces, a rancid odour and poor wettability. They can also cause turbidity and cause rubber
Calcium Oxalate - Calcium oxalate forms sparingly soluble deposits in milk-processing plants and pulp mills.
ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen> concentrate can be used in these and other applications as an effective but gentle means of removing calcium oxalate scale.
Acids and weak complexing agents such as IDS or HEIDA cannot be used to remove calcium oxalate effectively.
ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen concentrate is very effective for dissolving the scale formed by lime soaps and preventing scale from building up, and
they are much more effective than weak complexing agents such as IDS or HEIDA.
Included in the ScaleAwayCIP-AcidCleen concentrated proprietary formula, is a corrosion inhibitor used to protect the underlying metal when
scale and oxide deposits are removed from metal parts. It also prevents the underlying metal from being corroded without
interfering in the scale removal process.
