ScaleBreak®-Gel Descaler

  • Overview

    Product Overview

    Scaled-up cooling towers are ugly and unsightly. Cooling tower fill is the perfect hiding place for mildew and bacteria, like harmful Legionella. Cleaning scale and mineral deposits from fill have been almost impossible until now. In conjunction with the TFC-200, the patent-pending ScaleBreak®-Gel's special ultra cling formula finds the mineral scale and dissolves it on contact. It is a low viscosity, acidic product that is formulated to adhere to and descale mineral deposits from cooling tower fill or other vertical surfaces.

    Use our ScaleBreak-Gel calculator to figure out how much product you will need. 

    For use with TFC-200 Cooling Tower Fill Cleaning System and TFC-JR Chemical Applicator only.

    Please note: Product color may vary due to component availability. Performance is NOT affected in any way.

    Product Information

    What is the best way to identify when preventive maintenance needs to be scheduled?

    The best way is to chart your equipment performance data on a daily or at least weekly basis so maintenance can be performed before issues occur.

    Our facility has purchased acid for cleanings, why are Goodway descalers better?

    All Goodway ScaleBreak® descalers are blended with proprietary formulas that balance the high descaling performance and dissolvability speed, with protection against aggressive corrosion.

    Are Goodway’s descalers biodegradable?

    Yes, all of our descalers are biodegradable.

    Does Goodway offer technical assistance or consulting for chemical cleanings?

    Yes, we have detailed procedures and technical training available. Contact us for support.

    Why does Goodway offer three different descaling blends?

    The metal on your chiller, heat exchangers, pipes, and other equipment can range considerably. Many include aluminum, brass, copper, steel, and stainless steel. There's no "one size" fits all. Some descaler will corrode certain metals faster, than others. Our blends ensure the alloys get effectively cleaned and remain safe to the base metals.

    What happens to the scale when it comes in contact with ScaleBreak® descalers?

    The scale is dissolved into a liquid suspension so it can be flushed out of the system.

    How is the amount of descaler needed and circulation time determined?

    This is determined by the overall volume and severity of scale to be removed from the equipment.  Pump flow rates can also have a corresponding effect. One of our descaler calculators can help you determine this.

    What is the impact of scale fouling in equipment?

    Scale can cause higher energy consumption, loss of heat transfer, shorter equipment lifespan, unplanned shutdowns.
