Detailed Product Description
Antiscalant balls are pretreatment products formulated to prevent, rather than remove, scaling and inorganic fouling. A preventative system maintenance program with the antiscalant balls reduces membrane cleaning requirements while enhancing your domestic RO system performance.
What can AcuRO ANTISCALANT BALLS do for you?
Most natural waters cause damages in RO membranes, pipes, boilers and other installations. Some contain dissolved minerals, mainly calcium and magnesium salts. Such waters are referred to as hard water.
Hard Waters form scale in membranes, pipes and boilers. This leads to a decrease in water pressure and an increased energy demand. Clogged pipes may have to be replaced. Heating coils may overheat and fail.
Hard Waters are aggressive to metals and cause corrosion. Consequently the tap water turns brown. Leaks and burst pipes may be the results.
AcuRO ANTISCALANT BALLS
8 protect water systems in hotels, public buildings, private households and industry against scale formation and corrosion.
* prevent so-called brown or red water and clogged pipes
* save expensive repairs or even replacement of water pipes, boilers, heaters, cooling systems etc.
* help to save energy
* extend the life of your water installation.
AcuRO ANTISCALANT BALLS prevent scale and stops corrosion. It utilizes the phenomenon that minute concentrations of polyphosphates are sufficient to inhibit the deposition of scale onto metallic surfaces. Because of their phosphate and silicate content, ACURO ANTISCALANT BALLS also inhibits corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the metal surface. A concentration of 2-3 ppm is sufficient to achieve both of these effects.
AcuRO ANTISCALANT BALLS will also slowly remove existing scale in old pipes if it consists of brown scale, i.e. ironoxide. Hard scale, i.e. calcium carbonate cannot so easily be removed by ACURO ANTISCALANT BALLS. Here the advantage is again that ACURO ANTISCALANT BALLS will prevent further scaling up. Experience shows that scale and corrosion is not only found in galvanized but also in copper pipes. Even in plastic pipes one can find scale and deposits.
As a rule of thumb one can say that 1 mm scale on the heating coils of a boiler, increases the energy cost by 15%. ACURO ANTISCALANT BALLS consists of 100% active substance. The use in tap water and other types of fresh water at the prescribed dosage is inoffensive.
AcuRO ANTISCALANT BALLS dispensers can be installed in almost every water system. They require no electric installation and hardly any maintenance. They only have to be refilled with spheres every 3 - 6 months. Refilling is very easy.
AcuRO ANTISCALANT BALLS protect membrane of domestic RO systems and ensures long life of membranes.
