Cooling tower limescale removal is something that you should expect to encounter if you have an industrial or commercial company that makes use of a cooling tower. Some industries most frequently using cooling towers for business include the paper, chemical, and oil refining industries. Proper limescale removal and maintenance will ensure the longevity of your cooling tower and also prevent negative side effects. To achieve limescale removal, you have two basic options, chemical treatments or our eco-friendly solutions.
Why Limescale Removal Is Important
Cooling tower limescale removal is important because of the effects that limescale buildup within your cooling tower unit may cause; a decrease in efficiency and corrosion within your cooling tower. Over time, calcium-rich water sources cause calcium carbonate to accumulate on the sides of your piping and cooling tower. This is known as limescale buildup.
Limescale buildup can decrease the efficiency of your water-cooling tower by 70%. When your cooling tower is not operating efficiently, it can take a toll on other business operations, especially if you use the cooling tower for frequently used machines in your building. Cooling tower limescale removal is also important because limescale can cause corrosion. This corrosion eats away at pipes and the inside of your cooling tower, making leaks and other damages much more likely. Luckily, you can easily and affordably combat limescale buildup with our electronic descaling device, ScaleBlaster that is safe, cost-effective, low-maintenance, and environmentally friendly.
Options for Treatment
There are the two categorizations of treatments suggested for cooling tower limescale removal: chemical, and eco-friendly. Some common chemical treatments include the use of toxic chemicals, expensive salt-free conditions, or harmful water softeners. The reason some of these treatments are so toxic is because they encourage the release of chlorides into the environment. In addition to being harsh on the environment, these methods are high maintenance and very expensive to continue over the lifetime of your cooling tower.
A more eco-friendly method for cooling tower limescale removal is electronic descalers such as ScaleBlaster. Our electronic descaler works by sending electromagnetic waves through your water supply. These electromagnetic waves change the property of calcium molecules to prevent them from sticking to your pipes and appliances. Over the course of use, this also removes existing limescale from your water cooler and pipelines.
The electronic descalers we offer are not just better for the environment. They also offer other benefits such as cost efficiency and low maintenance. While the initial purchase price of electronic descalers for cooling tower limescale removal is greater than that of water softeners and chemicals, its cost over a lifetime is far less expensive. Electronic descalers are also low maintenance. You already must have routine inspection to your cooling tower unit twice yearly. Why should you add additional maintenance to put the chemicals and heavy bags of water softener into your system? Electronic descalers take all of the hassle out of your cooling tower limescale removal plan.
