We are continuing our series on helping business owners, purchasing agents, managers and foreman justify the purchase of the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler over other types of water decalcification systems. One major advantage an electronic water descaler has over other solutions is that it improves the efficiency of heating and cooling circuits while also increasing cycles of concentration / reducing blowdown water.
Today, we will compare ScaleBlaster to two other types of water decalcification systems and processes – water softeners and chemicals (i.e. chemical scale control):
Water Softeners vs. Electronic Water Descaler
Water softeners require a lot of water and salt to operate. They are expensive to purchase and maintain. Water softeners discharge chlorides and are intrusive to the water system. ScaleBlaster not only prevents new scale from forming, but it also is effective in pipe scale removal. Therefore, no separate lime scale remover needs to be purchased. An electronic water descaler is an affordable, one-time investment that requires little maintenance, no chemicals and easily mounts on a wall.
Chemicals vs. Electronic Water Descaler
Chemicals, including cooling tower biocide, are not only costly, but also a recurring expense. Chemicals also present a hazard when stored. An electronic water descaler is effective in pipe scale removal and prevention without using harmful chemicals. There is also no need to purchase a separate lime scale remover. A one-time investment in ScaleBlaster is the affordable, eco-friendly alternative to harmful chemicals such as cooling tower biocide.
There are many water decalcification systems to choose from, but only one offers lasting cost savings and benefits. Contact your nearest commercial or industrial dealer to learn more about how the ScaleBlaster electronic water descaler can work for your business.
