Things to Consider When Choosing an Industrial Lime Descaler

Three Factors of Cooling Tower Water Quality

Clearwater Enviro Technologies offers specialized services for commercial and industrial cooling towers. Our nearly 30 years in the industry has provided us with the experience and expertise to develop systems designed to provide the best cooling tower water treatment options on the market.

Quality water that is free from organic and inorganic contaminants is essential for the optimal performance, efficiency and life cycle of any cooling system. The calcium hardness level of the water can significantly impact the overall function.  An electronic descaling system such as ScaleBlaster eliminates and controls lime scale, resulting in less corrosion, damage and downtime to repair and/or replace components.

Let’s look at the three main factors that affect cooling tower water quality:


The water hardness scale plays a significant role in water quality.  High calcium hardness levels mean that more impurities remain as pure water is evaporated. ScaleBlaster uses an oscillating electronic field to change the shape of the calcium molecules in the water and causing it to lose its ability to stick. This approach is highly effective at eliminating the risk of lime scale build up in the cooling tubes and on the heat exchange components.


Corrosion can wreak havoc on the pipes and internal cooling tower systems.  ScaleBlaster helps reduces the corrosive properties of the water while removing existing lime scale.

Algae and Bacteria

Algae and bacteria are very problematic. Controlling them is an important part of a cooling tower water treatment plan.  ScaleBlaster is extremely effective in controlling algae and bacteria.
