Water is known as the universal solvent. Most water supplies
are usually saturated with large amounts of minerals, such as calcium
carbonate (lime scale), calcium sulfate, iron and manganese, which can cause
corrosion and scaling. The amount of minerals carried in saturation varies
with the type of rock formation and other factors such as pH, oxygen content
is saturated with minerals, any increase in temperature or pressure drop
will cause the minerals to precipitate (form scale). So, water passing
through a water faucet, shower head, or the heat in a water heater will
change with the waters ability to hold the dissolved minerals in suspension.
Very simply, Scaltrol stops mineral scale by introducing a measured
amount of sequestrant into the water. The mineral molecules, which have a
positive charge, are attracted to and held in suspension by the negative
charge of the sequestrant. The mineral molecules are unable to join
together, so scale is unable to form.
Scaltrol has developed a patented venturi dispensing head which
provides an effective and efficient feedrate of the polyphosphates!
Scaltrol controls corrosion by chlorides and minerals, by depositing
a microscopic film of phosphate to all surfaces. It is well known that a layer
of scale 1/4" on a heating element will decrease the efficiency, and will
subsequently increase your energy bills by up to 40%.
Information provided by manufacturers of equipment using water indicate that
80% of all service calls are problems caused by water. Water that is heated
will cause scale nine times faster as it approaches boiling point.
Water that is pressurized (for instance, spray nozzles) will form scale four
times faster than regular cold faucet water.
A Scaltrol unit is simple to install because it is non-electrical,
non-magnetic and non-mechanical.
