Wastewater Treatment and ScaleBlaster – A Closer Look

We’ve discussed in previous articles how the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is used in power plant operations, specifically how it reduces the need for cooling tower biocide.  This next series of articles covers how ScaleBlaster is used in wastewater treatment facilities.

Unlike other water decalcification systems, the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler has many direct benefits. For instance wastewater treatment plants can increase their bottom line by reducing chemical use and labor.  Let’s take a look at some additional benefits:

Lime/Soda Ash

Lime and/or soda ash is a safe and inexpensive way to treat low pH in a wastewater stream.  The slurry pumps used for this often fall victim to limescale.  ScaleBlaster is not only effective in water scale removal, but once installed, it prevents new scale from forming.

Resin Bed Calcification

The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler helps prevent the calcification of the resin bed by keeping calcium carbonate ions in the solution.

Chlorine Injection Pumps

The lines that feed chlorine into the treatment system are subject to limescale.  The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is one of the most effective hard water treatment options when it comes to water scale removal and prevention. In the case of chlorine injection pumps, it keeps scale particles suspended and away from pump surfaces.

If you work in the wastewater treatment industry and are seeking hard water treatment options, look no further. The ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler is affordable, requires little maintenance, uses no chemicals and is environmentally friendly.  When it comes to industrial water decalcification systems, nothing compares to ScaleBlaster!

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:

Things to Consider When Choosing an Industrial Lime Descaler

Many industries have a system to regulate the core temperature of their facility. A cooling tower is one such system, and it requires regular maintenance and repairs to stay fully functional. Using an industrial hard water descaler system such as ScaleBlaster for your cooling tower water treatment can result in significant savings.  Here are few things you need to consider when purchasing an electronic decaling system for cooling tower water treatment.

Choosing the Correct Model

The more you know about the type of electronic descaling system you need, the better equipped you will be to choose the right model for your facility.  The calcium hardness level plays a big part in the process.  If you are unsure about what type of industrial hard water descaler is the best option for you, a ScaleBlaster dealer can help.

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.

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

You will find additional benefits for wastewater treatment plants on our website. You can also contact us or one of our worldwide dealers to find out how ScaleBlaster can not only help you run more efficiently, but save you time, money and maintenance/labor costs.
