Lime Scale Remover
Removes scale deposits effectively

Non-distilled industrial water contains mineral salts that bind to metal, especially hot surfaces. These scale deposits, usually calcium and magnesium compounds, affect the operating efficiency of air compressors, heat exchangers, vacuum pumps, boilers, cooling towers and other water-wetted equipment. This results in billions of dollars in lost revenues due to equipment down time, increased power consumption and maintenance costs associated with scale removal.

REEDLIME is a water-based solvent enhanced with wetting agents, corrosion inhibitors and degreasing compounds. It is designed to penetrate and remove encrusted lime scale, rust, dirt and corrosion by-products from water-wetted internal surfaces of commercial and industrial processing equipment. Low foaming, REEDLIME quickly goes to work dissolving scale while releasing carbon dioxide as a harmless by-product. Its pleasant citrus-lime fragrance help mask unpleasant odours normally associated with dissolving water scale and corrosion. Easy to use,environmentally friendly, and biodegradable, REEDLIME provides a quick, simple and safe method for returning scaled processing equipments to full service and top operating efficiency.

Applications

REEDLIME is designed for safe, efficient removal of lime deposits and water scale from:

  • Heat exchangers, air compressors, power plant boilers, piping systems and evaporating equipment.
  • Water-wetted equipment in refineries, utilities, paper mills, chemical plants, foundries and rubber plants, to name a few.
  • Food processing plants, meat packing plants and breweries.
  • Sewage disposal plants, water treatment facilities and other municipal water handling operations.
  • Any piece of equipment that is water-cooled.

Production problems caused by scale build-up:
Volume As pipes become restricted, pumping horsepower (and amperage) must be,increased in order to maintain production volume.
Heat transfer As exchange surfaces become fouled, thermal efficiencies decrease,,compromising production.
Mechanical failure Alcohol can be drying to the skin; conditioner helps to keep skin from drying.
Benefits of Using REEDLIME

A safe and versatile lime scale remover, REEDLIME can be used to perform de-scaling maintenance without causing a break in production.

  • No Disassembly- REEDLIME cleans equipments without expensive disassembly, eliminating the need for intensive labor.
  • No Interruption- In many applications, de-scaling can be performed while the system is in operation, eliminating costly down time.
  • No Hiding- REEDLIME effectively flushes scale from small, inaccessible places that cannot otherwise be cleaned, eliminating concealed scale.

10 Reasons to Use REEDLIME

  1. No pre-mixing required
  2. Will not separate
  3. Non-hazardous
  4. Non-corrosive
  5. Non-flammable
  6. Pleasant odour
  7. Free rinsing
  8. Low-foaming
  9. Safe to transport
  10. Re-usable (if not spent)

General Cleaning Procedure

REEDLIME is most effective when circulated through the equipment to be cleaned. Circulation should be up-flow if at all possible, taking between two to four hours.

Although not recommended, filling the equipment to be cleaned with REEDLIME and allowing it to sit until the scale has dissolved is a less effective alternative. This passive cleaning procedure normally takes two to six hours; therefore circulation is the preferred method.

Since carbon dioxide gas is a by-product of the de-scaling process, the cleaning equipment and the equipment being cleaned should be vented at all times.
