Things to Consider When Choosing an Industrial Lime Descaler

Cooling Tower Water Treatment in Power Generation Applications

Power generation plants rely on cooling towers, which require ongoing maintenance to remain effective. Installing an electronic water descaler for cooling tower water treatment reduces the need for cooling tower biocide and other harmful chemicals which degrade the overall integrity of the structure and its systems.

The water hardness scale plays a large part because cooling towers are designed to allow the “pure” water to evaporate while impurities remain.  The higher the water hardness scale, the more scale that is left behind.  This eventually leads to corrosion and other major problems. You may find this water hardness chart and water hardness map helpful in determining the hardness of the water in your area.

ScaleBlaster is an electronic water descaler that effectively works as a cooling tower water treatment system by eliminating existing limescale and prevents new limescale from forming. ScaleBlaster sends electromagnetic waves through the water pipe which change the properties of calcium molecules, thus preventing them from sticking to the inside walls.

Here is how ScaleBlaster benefits power generation plants:

How Electronic Water Conditioners Work

How Electronic Water Conditioners Work

Lime scale buildup is common in plumbing and appliances that use hard water. Lime scale is not only unsightly, it is also extremely difficult to remove. Electronic water conditioners such as ScaleBlaster are extremely effective when it comes to removing lime scale and other unsightly build up.

How Electronic Water Conditioners Work

Electronic water conditioners work by generating inaudible signals that cause ions to collide with one another.  This causes the calcium crystals to grow until there are no more surface charges left to stick to any surface, including pipe walls.  ScaleBlaster is the preferred and most popular brand of electronic water conditioners.  It not only promotes hard water scale removal, but prevents lime scale buildup as well.

Benefits of Using Electronic Water Conditioners

Removing lime scale from your home’s pipes not only extends the life of your pipes, but appliances as well. Hard water scale prevention saves you lots of money and headaches in the long run.  Electronic water conditioners even work wonders on your skin and hair as you skin will feel smoother and hair will become more manageable.  And, less soap scum in the shower and bathtub is always a plus!

Electronic Water Conditioners – Affordable and Easy to Install!

ScaleBlaster is extremely easy to install on the incoming pipe of your home – no plumber needed! Combining this with the affordability of our new homeowner models makes ScaleBlaster an ideal solution to hard water scale removal and prevention.

Hard Water Solution

Factors to Consider when Buying a Water Conditioner

What You Need to Know

Once you have made the decision to purchase a ScaleBlaster electronic water conditioner, there are a few things you need to assess.

Which ScaleBlaster Model Do I Need?

Before making your purchase, take time to determine which ScaleBlaster model you need.  You want to make sure you purchase the proper size electronic water descaler to ensure efficient limescale removal and prevention. The SB-75 is designed for homes under 4,000 square feet with calcium hardness levels up to 19 grains per gallon or 325 parts per million.  The SB Elite is designed for homes up to 5,000 square feet with calcium hardness levels up to 35 grains per gallon or 660 parts per million. You must purchase a unit with the capacity to handle the level of hard water you have coming into your home if want to effectively prevent limescale.

Water Hardness

We encourage you to test your water’s hardness before purchasing your ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler.  You can buy a hard water test kit from a local pool supply or hardware store.  Perform the test and note the results.  As mentioned in the section above, determining the calcium harness levels in your hard water is important when it comes to selecting the proper size unit.  Perform the test again 90-120 days after installing your new electronic water conditioner system. You will be amazed at the results!

Type of Pipe

Electronic water conditioners work with all types of pipe.  If you have Copper, PVC, CPVC or PEX, your new ScaleBlaster can be installed by wrapping a signal cable around the pipe on the incoming line into your home.  Galvanized pipe’s magnetic qualities prevent the signal from penetrating it. If you have galvanized pipe, you will simply need to replace about 6” – 8” inches of it with a non-magnetic pipe such as copper or PVC to accommodate the signal cable. This can be either be a DIY job, or can be handled by a handyman or plumber.

If you have questions, give us a call! We are here to help make sure you purchase the right unit for your home and family.

Cooling Tower Water Treatment – Why It’s Important to Use an Electronic Water Conditioner

Cooling Tower Water Treatment – Why It’s Important to Use an Electronic Water Conditioner

Cooling tower chemistry naturally results in large amounts of algae. This produces very high levels of limescale, which eventually leads to costly repairs and corrosion.  Cooling tower biocide can be used to help alleviate this problem. However, cooling tower biocides generally use harsh and potentially hazardous chemicals and require a lot of manpower and labor.  An electronic water conditioner such as ScaleBlaster can significantly reduce the need or amount of cooling tower biocide required to prevent limescale and corrosion.  Let’s examine how ScaleBlaster is an effective water conditioning solution and hard water treatment system for cooling towers.

First, it is very easy to install on the incoming water line.  A signal cable is wrapped around the pipe (it never comes into contact with the water).  This allows for a natural and gentle elevation of the PH of the recirculating water by increasing the cycle of concentration. The result? The water becomes much less corrosive, existing limescale is removed and algae and bacteria are controlled.  ScaleBlaster also works to ensure scale forming ions do not adhere to one another, thus preserving the integrity of pipes, tubes, heat transfer surfaces, walls, jets, etc.

Cooling tower chemistry will naturally result in algae, limescale buildup and other issues. If you are looking for a maintenance free, cost effective alternative to cooling tower biocide, ScaleBlaster can provide an excellent cooling tower water treatment for your industrial plant. An electronic water descaler will save you lots of time, labor, money and headaches in the long run. Contact ScaleBlaster today – we are here to help!

What is the Difference Between a Water Softener and Electronic Water Conditioner?

I’m Confused, What is the Difference Between a Water Softener and Electronic Water Conditioner?

There is a big difference between a water softener and an electronic water conditioner.  A water softener will replace calcium in the water with salt, while an electronic water conditioner, like ScaleBlaster, will not remove anything from the water.  Water softeners are expensive to maintain, have only a 5 to 10 year lifespan, and require continuous maintenance.  They take up a lot of floor space and require ongoing purchases of salt.  The hassle of lifting 40 pound or more bags of salt is not fun.   Additionally, water softeners are harmful to people on salt restricted diets and should not be used.  An electronic water descaler like ScaleBlaster is the perfect solution.  While acting as a limescale remover, the calcium remains in the water, which is good for you.  ScaleBlaster is a salt-free water conditioner – a healthy alternative to water softeners.

Water softeners also make the skin feel dry and the water feel slippery and makes soap suds difficult to remove.  It will also increase water and sewer bills greatly while discharging chlorides into the water stream.  ScaleBlaster, a lime scale remover, requires no salt and is safe for people on salt restricted diets.  It is non-intrusive to the water and does not require any additional water usage.  ScaleBlaster is a great alternative to water a softener and will make water feel “silkier” while allowing for soap suds to wash away easily.   ScaleBlaster is also an ideal solution for tankless water heater and will prevent the heat exchanger in the heater from fouling up with scale deposits.
