Pipes & Radiators
Anywhere where water is being piped, whether it’s borehole water or municipal water, there’s always some residual chemicals in the water.
Anywhere where water is being piped, whether it’s borehole water or municipal water, there’s always some residual chemicals in the water. This water passes through pipes and deposits the residual chemicals on the surface of the pipe. If there are sulphates in the water, calcium sulphate is deposited which is extremely insoluble and once it gets to a certain thickness, it’s almost impossible to remove and then you may as well throw away the pipe.
Manchem’s descaler uses an inhibited acid instead of hydrochloric or sulphuric acid which makes the acid less corrosive. When using hydrochloric or sulphuric acid to remove scale, the acid still reacts on the metal resulting in using more acid because it’s used up by the reaction with the metal. The advantage of using inhibited acid is it only reacts to the scale and not the metal. It also prevents the scale from building up again.
Radiator descaling can be done through ultrasound processing. Manchem’s product – Ultrasound – is added to an ultrasound bath whereby radiators are placed in these baths and sound waves are passed through them. In this way, radiator pipes are descaled.
Manchem manufactures specialized ultrasound cleaner. Specifically designed for use in ultrasound baths. Commonly these cleaners are used to descale radiators.
