Why Need To Clean Water Scale?
The Importance of Equipment Cleaning:
The circulation of water is the major cause behind the mineral scale. It takes three weeks to form the
scales, and thus, we think that it is a very fast process.
We have to maintain the water treatment unit for removing and solving the scale-related issue of any
industrial tool. However, all the deposits, including scales, have to undergo the descaling process.
While those deposits have not been removed thoroughly, they can cause a risk to your operation staff.
They also result in the transfer of higher amount of heat, and it can deactivate the system fully. Your
systems and equipment can get destroyed due to these reasons.
A thin film of deposit may also cause the issue of insulation, and that’s why the equipment can turn
out to be useless. Your overall cost will get increased, and you will find the serious blasting issues.
We have already noted those problems in various fields.
1. Problems caused by scale
Reduced heat conduction
Corrosion issue, shortening the life of equipment
Negative effect on the operational output of the equipment
Increase of energy usage
Product quality deterioration
2. Effect on energy consumption caused by scale
From a reliable source, we have seen that a scale, with thickness of 1.5mm, could cause an increase in
the usage of energy by 15 percent. The efficiency level will also get reduced.
Increase in Energy Consumption as a Function of Scale Thickness:
inch scale Increase in energy usage
1/32 8.5%
1/16 12.4%
1/8 25%
1/4 40%
