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 .


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.
