The accumulation of scale can reduce flow rates, oftentimes leading to lower operating efficiency. And today, efficient corrosion and scale inhibitors are just as important to the environment as they are to your operation. That’s why ChemREADY manufactures a series of multifunctional scale inhibitors and water treatment solutions for cooling systems and chemicals to prevent and/or eliminate deposits of metal ions and hardness salts in the feedwater of the boiler systems. We also offer water treatment solutions for use where extremely low-pollution potential and maximum protection of equipment is needed.
Corrosion and Scale inhibitors are tailored chemicals that delay or prevent scale formation when added in small concentrations in water that would normally create scale deposits. Corrosion and scale inhibitor is similar to preventing scale in washing machines and similar chemicals are used. Ultimately, inhibition can be achieved, either by adding substances that react with potential scale-forming substances so that thermodynamically, a stable region is reached or by adding substances that suppress crystal growth. Therefore, the use of these chemicals is attractive because a very low dosage (several ppm) can be sufficient to prevent scale for extended periods of time for either surface or equipment treatments. The precise mechanism for scale inhibitors is not completely understood.
Inhibitors must not interfere with other chemicals nor be affected by other chemicals. The detailed factors in the selection of scale inhibitor candidates for consideration in the performance tests include:
