Hard water scale is that white, crusty mineral deposit that clogs up your plumbing fixtures, water heaters, humidifiers, ice makers, dishwashers and washing machines.
In any application where water is heated or cooled, scale buildup is a potential problem, regardless of the hardness level of the water. However, scale will build faster in hard water areas.
Scale buildup in the final rinse causes clogged solenoid valves, water leaks, and clogged rinse arms, affecting results.
In just a few months, scale can cause reduced effectiveness or even burn out of heating elements.
Minerals become concentrated in the sump, eventually exceeding the water saturation point. This leads to scale buildup problems on the inlet side, restricting water flow for defrosting or keeping coils clean. This, in turn, causes ice buildup on the coils.
Increased costs for energy, water, maintenance, and equipment replacement.
The Scaltrol scale control system prevents the buildup of scale in equipment such as booster heaters, hot water heaters, steamers, and ice machines. Our hard water solution will even begin to remove accumulated scale buildup over time. It can be used in both cold and hot water applications.
The Scaltrol water treatment system utilizes a patented dispensing head that accurately controls the amount of scale preventative being added. The compound is safe and certified under NSF Standard 60. With our hard water scale solution, there are no moving parts and no costly circuitry.
Reduced water and energy costs, increased equipment performance, reduced equipment maintenance and/or replacement downtime.
Into the water lines leading to steamers, booster heaters, and ice machines or any other application experiencing scale buildup problems.
The SC models are for cold water applications using a clear sump. The HSC models are for hot water applications and use a high pressure composite sump. The SC-50 and HSC-50 models treat approximately 50,000 gallons of water before the cartridge needs to be replaced. The SC-100 and HSC-100 units treat double that amount: approximately 100,000 gallons of water. The SC-500 treats approximately 500,000 gallons of water.
On the SC-50, SC-100 and SC-500 models, the cartridge should be replaced when the compound reaches the bottom. On the HSC-50 and HSC-100, you must remove the sump to check the compound level.
As little as 1/8” of scale buildup can increase energy consumption by up to 39%. If you consider the cost to heat water for the final rinse, these added energy costs for scale can more than pay for the cost of the Scaltrol scale control system in just a few short months. When you factor in the cost of a new booster heater and the frantic downtime involved, the economic case gets stronger and stronger!
