888 Descale

888 Descaler is a scientific liquid descaler specifically designed to dissolve all water scale, lime, rust and other water formed deposits which are found in any type of water operated heat transfer equipment or cooling systems.

888 DESCALE is a non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-flammable, non-injurious tar oil base solvent, heavily fortified with wetting and penetrating agents used for the rapid removal of water scale, limeand rust deposits found on the water side of any equipment that is water cooled, water heated or water operated, in any manner. 888 DESCALE is biodegradable which allows for expended solution to be disposed of through regular sewer systems with a water flush.

The solution is non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-flammable and non-injurious to personnel when used as directed at any temperature within operating limits. (Not to exceed 120F) The solution does not corrode, erode, attack, pit, oxidize or have other deleterious affects on metals or materials such as:

  • Copper
  • Fiber
  • Plastic
  • Iron
  • Steel
  • Rubber
  • Lead
  • …or other materials or metals found in water heated, water cooled or water operated equipment when used as directed.

The exceptions to paragraph 3 are some alloys of aluminum, magnesium and stainless steel. These metals will oxidize and, with a few exceptions, discolor. Some alloys of these metals are known to discolor and react galvanically in concentrated 888 DESCALE solutions. To minimize this reaction, use a diluted 888 DESCALE solution. Test compatibility on a small sample area. It is recommended that 888 DESCALE be diluted 50% or more when cleaning chrome as most chrome finishes will discolor.

888 DESCALE is an electrolyte, as are most cleaning agents. An electrolyte may cause plating in some types of equipment. This means a transfer of small amounts of metal onto another metal. In some instances a thin coating of copper may be plated onto a steel drum while circulating an electrolyte such as 888 DESCALE. The only time plating occurs is when two different metals are in an electrolytic solution.
