ScaleBlaster Industrial Hard Water Scale Remover

Power plants, military bases, naval ships, oil wells, factories and manufacturing facilities are among the many industrial industries that are reaping the benefits of implementing the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler.  Although there are numerous hard water treatment options and water decalcification systems to choose from, none compare to ScaleBlaster  in their effectiveness, affordability and environmentally friendly aspects.

Cooling tower biocide, for example, is widely used as a water scale remover in power plants. Cooling tower biocide, however, is composed of harsh chemicals. It also requires a significant amount of manpower to manage.

ScaleBlaster reduces corrosion, improves efficiency, increases cycles of concentration, controls algae and bacteria, prevents scale from accumulating and is effective in water scale removal without the use of chemicals. And, while not all industrial operations use cooling tower biocide, they often depend on other types of harsh chemicals for pipe scale removal.

Some of the most attractive aspects about the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is that it is affordable, significantly reduces maintenance and downtime and extends the life of capital equipment.  Let’s take a closer look at the industrial models:

Part Three

Are you looking for hard water treatment options?  If so, you are probably familiar with how an electronic water descaler works.  ScaleBlaster is the industry leading electronic water descaler offering residential, commercial and industrial models.  Other companies have tried to develop similar products, but no other product is as effective in water scale removal and prevention as ScaleBlaster. We’ve been answering your questions about ScaleBlaster so you can effectively compare it to other types of water decalcification systems and hard water treatment options.

Does ScaleBlaster Help Reduce Bacteria?

Limescale in your pipes is the primary breeding ground for bacteria.  ScaleBlaster is effective in both pipe scale removal and preventing new limescale from forming.  Once there is no breeding ground for the bacteria to propagate, it can no longer grow.

Where Does the Scale Go Once It’s Removed?

If you have existing scale in your pipes, the water scale removal process will begin once ScaleBlaster is installed.  An electronic water descaler gradually dissolves scale by each molecule where it is eventually absorbed by the water.  During the first few weeks, you may notice a slight increase in scale on your faucets and/or showerheads.  Once pipe scale removal is complete, your limescale problem will be resolved and it should not re-occur.

How Much Electricity Does ScaleBlaster Use?

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is one of the most energy efficient residential hard water treatment options on the market today.  It utilizes approximately 15 watts of electricity.  Depending on the electricity cost in your area, the average home will utilize about $8.76/year in electricity to operate ScaleBlaster.

When it comes to hard water treatment options, there is a lot to consider.  ScaleBlaster is more effective and affordable than other types of water decalcification systems on the market.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler has a 90-day money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose by giving it a try!  ScaleBlaster residential models can be purchased at Home Depot (in-store and online), Lowes (online) and Costco (online).

Cooling Tower Biocide

Benefits of ScaleBlaster at Power Plants

Cooling Tower Biocide

Part One

As discussed in our previous article, lime scale removal and control is an integral part of ensuring efficient operation of a power plant.  Cooling tower biocide is generally used as a hard water scale remover, but it contains harsh chemicals and requires a lot of manpower to manage.

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler controls lime scale deposits throughout a power plant operation.  It is effective in water scale removal and control not only in cooling towers but also condensers, chillers, boilers and compressors. Let’s take a look at how the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler benefits a power plant.

Chemical Reduction

ScaleBlaster can significantly reduce the need to use chemicals such as cooling tower biocide as a hard water scale remover and/or for the prevention of corrosion and scale.

Reduces Corrosion

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. An electronic water descaler controls scaling potentials, which lessens troublesome corrosive cell formations of calcium/iron deposits on the metal surfaces. ScaleBlaster helps control biofilm formation where bacteria can actively attack all metal surfaces.

Increases Cycles of Concentration

By allowing the conductivity levels to go higher, you may be able to raise the cycles of concentration which will result in significant water savings.

Improves Efficiency

ScaleBlaster is not only effective in lime scale removal, but it keeps heat transfer surfaces free from lime scale, thus allowing systems to operate under optimal design conditions.

Electronic Water Descaler

ScaleBlaster Pro Series Model

Electronic Water Descaler

The ScaleBlaster SB-Max Pro is an electronic water descaler designed for larger homes and often sought by professionals who work with homeowners who need a residential hard water solution.  It is unsurpassed as a hard water scale remover and is incredibly effective in preventing new limescale from forming.

The ScaleBlaster SB-Max Pro electronic water descaler works on copper, PVC, CPVC and PEX pipe.  It can be used on homes up to 5,000 square feet for both indoor and outdoor installations.  It is considered to be 60% more powerful than the SB-75 residential model, which is why it can handle calcium harness levels of up to 40 grains per gallon (gpg) or 684 parts per million (ppm).

It is important to note that with an electronic water descaler, the water hardness level and total dissolved solids will remain the same.  This is because ScaleBlaster is a water conditioner, not a water softener.  Water softeners remove calcium from the water.  ScaleBlaster does not.  Calcium is good for the metabolism so removing it has no benefit.

ScaleBlaster is an effective hard water scale remover that does not rely on salt or chemicals.  It dissolves the scale so in cases of heavy buildup, initial pipe scale removal may take some time.  The good news is that in addition to being a hard water scale remover, ScaleBlaster is extremely effective in limescale prevention.

If you are a professional who is seeking to find an effective residential hard water solution for your customers, we can help.  The SB-Max Pro is available through our USA and international dealers.

Electronic Water Descaler

Advantages of Installing an Electronic Water Descaler Instead of a Water Softener

Electronic Water Descaler

Part Two

When it comes to shopping for a hard water scale remover and limescale prevention solution, the two main choices for homeowners are an electronic water descaler and a water softener.  We are continuing our two-part series on the advantages of installing an electronic water descaler.

Eco-Friendly

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler requires no salt or chemicals to be effective as a hard water scale remover and limescale prevention solution. Water softeners, on the otherhand, use salt and chemicals that are discharged into the waste stream and unable to be removed by wastewater treatment facilities.  ScaleBlaster is an eco-friendly water softener alternative.

Overall Effects on the Water

Water softeners make skin feel dry.  The water also feels slippery and soap suds are difficult to remove.  Once you install ScaleBlaster, the pipe scale removal process begins. You will gradually start to notice that your skin feels softer, the water feels silkier and soap suds easily wash away.  The full benefits of ScaleBlaster will be apparent after a few months.

Healthy

Water softeners add salt to the water. Added salt in drinking water is not recommended for people on salt restricted diets or pets. Water softeners also remove all calcium from the water.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler does not require chemicals to be an effective limescale remover.  It also does an excellent job in preventing new scale from forming.

Cost Savings

ScaleBlaster is a residential hard water solution that is much more cost effective than purchasing a water softener system.  Furthermore, ScaleBlaster is a one-time investment that is not only effective in pipe scale removal / water scale removal, but also prevents new scale from forming all together.  Another advantage an electronic water descaler has over water softeners is that it requires no additional water to operate and does not use filters.  The water savings alone makes an electronic water descaler a sound investment.
