Benefits of ScaleBlaster at Power Plants

Benefits of ScaleBlaster at Power Plants - Benefits of ScaleBlaster at Power Plants

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

ScaleBlaster Pro Series Model - ScaleBlaster Pro Series Model

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.
