Wastewater Treatment and ScaleBlaster – A Closer Look

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!
