ScaleAway is a bio-degradable lime scale remover made by ScaleAway, to remove 
 If limescale deposits are left to accumulate, water flow is restricted and piping, water channels and water jackets become plugged. Ultimately, ignoring scale depositions can lead to the destruction and possible failure of equipment. In addition to loss of efficiency, process contamination can occur. Increasing pressure losses and decreasing flow rates are other symptoms associated with limescale build-up.

Huge financial losses to industries are a result of breakdowns, unplanned shutdowns, process contamination, high product reject rate, expensive parts replacements etc..

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.


Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid

  Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid , widely abbreviated as EDTA (for other names, see Table) is a and a colourless, water-soluble solid. Its is named ethylenediaminetetraacetate . It is widely used to dissolve . Its usefulness arises because of its role as a hexadentate ("six-toothed") and , i.e. its ability to "sequester" such as Ca and Fe .



  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.
