    Product Information

    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.

    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.

    How does a descaler work?

    A descaler is a chemical solution that removes built-up mineral deposits, such as calcium and lime, from pipes, appliances, and other surfaces. These deposits, also known as scale, can accumulate over time and cause various problems, such as reduced water flow, reduced heating efficiency, and reduced appliance performance.

    Descaler chemicals react with the mineral deposits to loosen and dissolve them. Descaler chemicals generally contain acids and other agents that react with the minerals to form a soluble compound that can be easily rinsed away. In other words, it dissolves the scale, making it easy to flush out of the system.

    Our ScaleBreak® descaling solutions come in specifically engineered formulas to match the underlying metals in your system. Contact us to discuss your specific descaling need. 

    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.
