Descaler for heat exchangers
Scalebreak-MP is an industrial descaler developed to clean technical installations, such as heat exchangers. The cleaning agent has a unique formula that allows it to be used on almost any material without causing damage. In addition, Scalebreak-MP is biodegradable and (due to the formula) is exempted for the transport of hazardous substances.
Applications and usage
Common deposits in heat exchangers, such as: limescale, rust, and biological deposits can be easily removed by using Scalebreak-MP. Examples of installations for which Scalebreak-MP is used are:
One of the big advantages of Scalebreak-MP, is that it's a ready-to-use product. There is no need to mix chemicals on-site before the cleaning can take place. The formulation is pre-blended and non-hazardous and therefore much safer before, during and after use. The descaler can be added directly to the installation together with water, after which the circulation process can start.
Not only does the pre-blended product save time and risks before and during the cleaning, it also makes the job easier to perform and less time consuming. During the production of Scalebreak-MP, the ingredients are all added in precise amounts at a specific sequence within mixing vessels. What this process accomplishes is a specific formulation meeting minimal corrosion rates, peak saturation points, optimal dissolving speeds, and non-hazardous transport for minimized freight costs.
Scalebreak-MP is a unique blend of citric acid with corrosion inhibitors, wetting, and penetrating agents. It is designed for descaling a wide range of metals, plastics, and other materials, including stainless steel, and offers excellent cleaning results and speed without compromising the long-term integrity of equipment base metals. The biodegradable descaling solution safely dissolves scale deposits into a liquid suspension and allows them to be flushed out of heat exchangers, leaving no residual solution.

With most cleaning technologies it is necessary to partially or completely disassemble the plate heat exchanger. Especially when disassembling plates, this can take quite some time and cause further complications such as leakages due to plates being reassembled incorrectly after the cleaning procedure.
In most cases, a preventive CIP cleaning and maintenance program can offer a great solution. CIP basically means that the plate heat exchangers require as little disassembly as possible, before the cleaning can start. The system can remain on site and the plate pack can also stay compressed.
