Alpha Descaler : Environmentally Safe Industrial Solution

QUICK LINKS to SDS, corrosion tests, spec sheet

Alpha Descaler FG and the more powerful Alpha Descaler FG Extra Strength will work on most applications and is also NSF60 approved and considered food grade.

Regular Alpha Descaler and the stronger Alpha Descaler Extra Strength is used if the system is contaminated extensively with other particulate such as silica, oil, etc. in addition to the scale such as may be found in power plants and therefore has extra ingredients added to assist cleaning.

HOW IT WORKS ?

Alpha Descaler is a non-hazardous, non-corrosive, non-injurious, non-toxic, non-fuming, yet fully biodegradable in 10 days acid replacement descaler, heavily fortified with wetting and penetrating agents which actually dissolves water scale, lime, mud, rust, and other water formed deposits from water operated equipment. Alpha Descaler FG is potable water systems and where possible contact with food can occur and for descaling equipment contacting food. It does NOT contain any traditional but often hazardous buffered acids such as hydrochloric, sulfonic, citric, or phosphoric. Here is a full list of specifications for alpha descaler.  

TOXICITY – truly non-toxic – note LD50 results on SDS for each product and see articles on toxicity under Resources or click here for SDS

CORROSION TO SKIN AND EYES – not corrosive – see SDS for each product for description

CORROSION TO METALS – metal tests indicate non-corrosive and so low that can be released (under local approvals) directly into the water system after use. See corrosion tests under Resources

GASKETS AND OTHER NORMALLY USED SEALING MATERIALS –  traditional acids can react with some rubbers and other material to cause swelling and otherwise negatively affect materials used in sealing. Alpha Descaler does not have negative effects on most materials.  See Effect on Sealing materials

SPEED – works as fast or faster than comparative but dangerous mineral acid products. See Video comparing to 12% HCl product.

CAPACITY – regular version equal to comparative but dangerous mineral acid products, extra strength version has double the capacity of regular mineral acids. See Capacity Tests against mineral acid products under Resources

BIODEGRADABILITY – considered 100% biodegradable in under 10 days even at full strength. See Specifications.

DISPOSAL – as per local authorities to obtain approvals but tests have proven material to be marine safe. See Specifications.

FOOD CONTACT – Alpha Descaler FG and Alpha Descaler FG Extra Strength NSF60 approved and has even been in use where food contact is possible.
See NSF60 listing details.

SHIPPING – Alpha Descaler and Alpha Descaler FG, regular and extra strength all have 0-0-0- rating for shipment and considered as non-hazardous material. See Dissolve Rate and Corrosion Rate and Pictogram Comparison to Other Acids
