The method used to treat scale is dependent on the makeup of the water in the system and the use/design of the system. We also use the Langelier Calcium Carbonate Saturation Index as a guide to predict the levels of scale that we may find in individual systems. Once we have established the individual needs and level of risk within a system we can treat the system for scale with the most appropriate of a variety of techniques using our expert knowledge and years of experience.
The different types of treatment that we commonly use include:
• Scale Inhibitor Chemicals – we can advise on and provide a wide range of scale inhibitor chemicals to help fight scale within your system
• Acid Dosing with Scale Inhibitors – acid dosing alongside scale inhibitors can improve the rate of scale protection in your system and we can provide you with the acids and inhibitors to do this. However, acid dosing can cause corrosive damage to certain systems and we would always recommend that you contact us before introducing this treatment so we can advise you on the best course of action.
• Base Exchange Softening – the use of a Base Exchange plant in your system will lower the amount of scale forming minerals within your system and as a result reduce levels of scale.
• Dealkalisation / Degassing plant – The use of a Dealkalisation plant in your system will reduce the number of impurities within the water supply and, as a result, reduce the level of scale.
Our experts will be able to guide you on what the most appropriate method of treatment is for your system. Contact us now we will get back to you within two working days.
