General

Chemical Reduction

ScaleBlaster can significantly reduce the need to use chemicals for the prevention of corrosion and scale. No more handling & storage of hazardous chemicals.

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. ScaleBlaster 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 = Water Savings

By allowing the conductivity levels to go higher, you may be able to raise the cycles of concentration – which will result in huge water savings.

Improves Efficiency

ScaleBlaster keeps heat transfer surfaces free from scale allowing systems to operate under optimal design conditions.

Prevents Scale Accumulation

ScaleBlaster will modify the scale-forming ions so they do not adhere to each other, the pipe walls, tubes, jets and heat transfer surfaces.

Reduces Maintenance and Downtime

ScaleBlaster will significantly reduce overall maintenance and downtime. Adding chemicals, balancing water chemistry and cleaning shutdowns will be greatly reduced.

Controls Algae and Bacteria

ScaleBlaster helps control algae and bacteria by eliminating their breeding ground – limescale deposits. The modified calcium crystals and higher cycles of concentration help to retard algae and biofilm formations.

Huge Energy Savings

The primary energy savings are a result of a decrease in energy consumption in heating or cooling applications. These savings are associated with the removal of scale formation. Just a 1/4” of scale buildup can increase energy consumption 40%.

Removes Existing Scale

Any existing scale within the system is removed within weeks and never returns. Contact us for more information on how we can prove this to you when ScaleBlaster is installed.

Extends Life of Capital Equipment

ScaleBlaster will extend equipment life dramatically, maximizing the return on capital investment.

Decrease Operating Costs

ScaleBlaster allows you to significantly lower your cost of operation by using less chemicals and less water, as well as reducing labor costs.

Environmentally Friendly

Discharge water regulations have made the disposal of chemically treated water a regulatory concern. ScaleBlaster is non-invasive and adds nothing to the water, simplifying your compliance measures.

Wastewater Treatment

 Lime or Soda Ash Treatment

Soda ash is the most commonly used treatment for a low pH reading in a wastewater stream. It is inexpensive, safe and able to be released without EPA concern. Soda ash is raw, uninhibited scale, by nature. Slurry pumps used to push the lime slurry into the water stream are subject to lime scale buildup. The ScaleBlaster System placed on the suction side of the pumps will prevent scale deposition on the pumps.

Chlorine Injection Pumps / Pump Deposits

The chlorine lines and pumps that are used to feed chlorine into the treatment stream become full of lime scale deposits and must be cleaned. ScaleBlaster will keep scale particles suspended in solution and off of the pump surfaces.

Resin Bed Calcification

Polymer Systems

Potential reduction of polymer usage and increased dewatering capabilities

Effluent System

The ScaleBlaster System will protect the discharge line, keeping it free of lime scale caused by heavy concentrations of the calcium carbonate.       

Sensors & Instrumentation

The ScaleBlaster System benefits sensors, probes and control valves. Calcium particles remain suspended in solution and will not leave deposits on vital measuring equipment.

Mixing Tank

Using lime to treat high pH water or soda ash to treat low pH water can present some of the greatest scale control challenges in the industry. The lime or soda ash is mixed with water to form a slurry and then is pumped into the water to be treated. The mixing tank is prone to scale deposition on the sides and the mixing propeller gets scale buildup, too. The ScaleBlaster System can treat the water to be mixed and will keep the tank sides and propeller clear of lime scale buildup.

Sodium Bisulfite Line

ScaleBlaster will prevent calcium coming out of solution and plugging up the sodium bisulfite lines used to remove chlorine and control pH levels.

Clarifiers

ScaleBlaster forms soft sludge instead of hard lime scale for decreased cleaning frequency and easier removal.

Sodium Hypochlorite Line

ScaleBlaster will remove limescale formation in the chemical feed lines and allow for optimal flow rates throughout the disinfection system from the injector to the contact basin.

Environmental Issues

Environmental issues and the “going green” movement in the World today is a more important issue than ever before. ScaleBlaster is the ideal environmental product.

Case Study

Utilizing ScaleBlaster to Reduce Lime Scale Build-up in an Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant

How it Works
The purpose of this case study is to determine the effectiveness of the ScaleBlaster system to reduce lime scale buildup on equipment in an industrial wastewater treatment plant which uses quicklime as the primary means of wastewater neutralization.
