Scale Control

Visentia is expert at understanding the complex chemical interactions in industrial water systems and can provide customised chemical solutions for the prevention of scale in your system. We supply an range of formulations based on chelating, dispersing, complexing, passivating, precipitating and pH control agents to keep scale at check.

Deposits of scale are formed on surfaces in contact with water due to the precipitation of salts that have limited solubility, but not total insolubility in water. Changes in physical and chemical conditions in the water such as temperature, pH and ionic concentration will cause salts to become insoluble. The formation of scale in boiler and cooling systems leads to poor heat transfer efficiency, reduced operational throughput, higher energy costs and ultimately failure of equipment.
