Industrial Hard Water Descaling Options

Industrial Hard Water Descaling Options

There are two basic options for the industrial hard water descaling: chemical options and an eco-friendly industrial hard water descaler such as ScaleBlaster. Cooling tower water treatment is important.  Chemical companies, oil refineries, power plants, and other companies also require an industrial lime scale remover to keep their operations in tip top shape. The ScaleBlaster industrial hard water descaler system is low maintenance, cost effective and prevents lime scale without harming the environment. Let’s examine the differences in both chemical and industrial hard descaler system options.

Chemicals

There are chemical options that you can use to treat the hardness level of your water, including various toxic chemicals and water softeners which require salt. There are several disadvantages to choosing the chemical method for cooling tower water treatment and industrial hard water descaling. These methods require lot of maintenance and are expensive. Chemicals, softeners, and conditioners that you use must be regularly be added to your water intake area. Adding toxic chemicals added to your system also introduces chlorides into the surrounding ecosystem.

Industrial Hard Water Descaling

The best eco-friendly industrial lime scale remover is ScaleBlaster. This industrial hard water descaler system not only prevents new lime scale build up, but eliminates existing lime scale in your pipes and equipment. ScaleBlaster operates without harsh, toxic chemicals, is relatively maintenance free and works effectively as both a cooling tower water treatment solution and industrial hard water descaler. ScaleBlaster uses an inaudible signal which causes calcium molecules to lose one crucial property: their stickiness. When the molecules cannot stick, they will not be able to cause lime scale buildup.

Cooling Systems Industrial

Why Cooling Systems Require Regular Descaling

Industrial equipment relies on cooling systems to ensure proper temperatures are maintained.  However, when hard water scale builds up, it can hinder proper functioning of the system.  An electronic water conditioner system can prevent hard water damage.  A water conditioner is a form of hard water treatment in that it prevents hard water damage by sending an inaudible signal through the pipe which causes turbulence in the water molecules and ion exchange in mineral atoms.  Crystals are unable to adhere to any surface; thus hard scale cannot form. As a result, existing scale not only goes away, it never returns again.

Since most cooling systems use water as the main coolant, a water conditioner is important for limescale removal and prevention.  Electronic water conditioner systems are effective when it comes to limescale removal and are used in industrial applications to prevent the degradation of expensive cooling systems.

Cooling towers also rely on industrial water conditioner systems for limescale removal and prevention.  Cooling towers re-use water, causing pure water to be evaporated.  As a result, many impurities, including limescale, remain. A water conditioner stabilizes the PH of the circulating water, thus preventing corrosion, controlling algae and bacteria and removing existing limescale.

When you consider the cost of damage that can occur to cooling systems and cooling towers, a water conditioner is an inexpensive option. The ScaleBlaster water conditioning system is a respected and proven limescale remover for industrial applications.  Best of all, it also preserves the integrity of your equipment by preventing new scale from forming.  Contact one of ScaleBlaster’s industrial dealers / specialists to learn more. We work with industries throughout the United States and abroad.

Combating the Need for Cooling Tower Biocide

Combating the Need for Cooling Tower Biocide

Cooling towers are designed to reuse water.  During this process, the “pure” water is evaporated, while the impurities remain.  These impurities cause numerous problems, including high levels of lime scale, which eventually leads to corrosion. A cooling tower biocide is used to combat these issues.  Chemical treatment for cooling towers is determined by the calcium and PH levels of the water and may be in the form of either an oxidizer biocide or non-oxidizer biocide.  An oxidizer cooling tower biocide is usually comprised of sodium bromide or sodium hypochlorite and is generally used on a daily basis. A non-oxidizer cooling tower biocide (i.e. glutaraldehyde) is used as needed.

The cost of the chemical treatment of cooling towers can add up, especially when you figure in expenses such as the chemicals themselves and maintenance staff.  This is where an electronic water decaler / electronic water conditioner, such as ScaleBlaster, comes into play.  ScaleBlaster uses no chemicals and requires no maintenance.  It is easy to install and never comes into contact with the water.  An electronic water conditioner emits sonic waves and allows the PH of the circulating water to naturally elevate and stabilize.  The corrosive properties of the water are reduced and existing lime scale is removed.  ScaleBlaster also controls algae and bacteria. A one-time investment in a ScaleBlaster industrial unit can save you thousands of dollars a year on chemicals, repairs and ongoing maintenance.

Power plants around the world, including in the United States, China and Mexico, are turning to ScaleBlaster.  Visit our Dealers page to find a ScaleBlaster representative near you.

Wastewater

How ScaleBlaster is Used in Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater treatment plants need effective lime scale removal treatment to run efficiently.  Often times, a commercial water softener is used to combat lime scale and other problems associated with wastewater treatment. However, commercial water softeners are costlier, require lots of maintenance and come with their own set of issues.  Water treatment plants are discovering the benefits of using an electronic water descaler such as ScaleBlaster. Let’s examine the primary reasons why wastewater treatment plants are choosing ScaleBlaster over chemical methods:

  • Maintenance and labor free
  • Removes and controls lime scale
  • Prevent scale deposits on pumps, especially when soda ash is used to treat low pH
  • Prevents calcification of the resin bed
  • May reduce polymer usage and increase dewatering capabilities
  • Protects sensors, probes and control valves as well as effluent system discharge lines
  • Uses no chemicals
  • Environmentally safe and friendly

ScaleBlaster – The Benefits for Commercial and Industrial Clients

ScaleBlaster – The Benefits for Commercial and Industrial Clients

Commercial and industrial clients may be different in many aspects, but they do have at least one thing in common – the need for aggressive hard water treatment.  Many companies are choosing ScaleBlaster because it is one of the most advanced and effective hard water descaler systems on the market.  In fact, the benefits of electronic water conditioners are so incredible, more and more companies are abandoning commercial water softeners. Chemical water treatment for cooling towers is even becoming obsolete.

Let’s look at some of the direct benefits of electronic water conditioners:

Industrial Water Treatment

Industrial Water Treatment – Key Benefits

ScaleBlaster has many benefits in the industrial water treatment field.  The main feature of ScaleBlaster is that it can provide lime scale removal without the need of hazardous chemicals and intensive labor.  ScaleBlaster can significantly reduce the need to use chemicals for the prevention of corrosion and scale.   Lime scale removal can take place when the ScaleBlaster unit is installed on the incoming water line entering the building or equipment.  A signal cable is wrapped around the outside of the pipe and never comes in direct contact with the water.  ScaleBlaster is an eco-friendly alternative for hard water treatment systems.   ScaleBlaster allows for increased cycles of concentration which naturally and gently elevates the pH of the re-circulating water, thereby rendering the water less corrosive.  This will result in huge water savings while improving the efficiency as ScaleBlaster keeps heat transfer surfaces free from scale and allowing systems to operate under optimal design conditions.

ScaleBlaster will modify the scale-forming ions so they do not adhere to each other, the pipe walls, tubes, jets and heat transfer surfaces.  It helps control algae and bacteria and results in huge energy savings.  Existing scale is also removed and never returns.  ScaleBlaster will extend the life of capital equipment, thus maximizing the return on capital investment.
