Descaling and acid cleaning

Descaling and acid cleaning of boilers and heat exchangers is an important part of your water treatment strategy.

If steam boilers and heating and cooling systems are operated with hard water, it can result in a loss of energy and heat transfer. When this happens, it can lead to a build-up of limescale and other mineral deposits that may, in turn, affect system efficiency.

In the case of a steam boiler, a scale build-up can result in overheating and a risk of failure.  In the worst scenario, it may even lead to a dangerous explosion.

The descaling and boiler acid cleaning service we offer uses a range of inhibited acids such as hydrochloric acid and sulfamic acid. The acid is selected to match the system metallurgy and the nature of the scale that is present in the boiler or heat exchangers.
