Descaling Service

Descaling service provided to remove lime scale and rust build up from oil coolers, heat exchangers, water chillers.


ScaleAway Descaler

ScaleAway is a new eco-friendly, bio-degradable descaler specially formulated to remove limescale build-up in your equipment, thereby improving production efficiency.



  Ecology & Toxicology - The excellent ecological and toxicological properties of ScaleAway21/12 , makes it the best bio-degradable non toxic descaling agent available on the South African market. Industrial Piping Solutions has therefore positioned ScaleAway21/12 as the primary replacement for other, less environmentally friendly complexing agents such as phosphates, phosphonates, zeolites and silicates, etc. ScaleAway21/12 is the best choice from the environmental point of view


Methylglycinediacetic Acid

  ScaleAwayMGA is very effective complexing agents for calcium in the alkaline pH range. This is an advantage in many cleaning applications. ScaleAwayMGA is less likely to crystallise in the acidic pHrange than other aminocarboxylic acids, and they are still capable of complexing iron ions effectively in the pH 2 – 3 range.


ScaleAway Lime Scale Removal

Lime or other salts are found in almost every water source in their dissolved forms. In common language limescale is responsible for hard water.  Depending on the amount of lime/calcium carbonate, the dissolved carbonic acid and the temperature of the water, the minerals precipitate and start to crystallize. In other words it deposits on surface areas of your oil cooler, heat exchanger, water chiller etc... This phenomenon can cause substantial problems for technical applications.
