Essentially Non-Corrosive to Materials
Alpha Descaler and Alpha Descaler FG are essentially non-corrosive to most materials. This is a very important in descaling operations, especially compared to the alternatives used for descaling, to maintain the long term integrity of water cooled, water heated and water operated equipment. A material is considered corrosive if the rate on either steel or […]
Non-Fuming for Safety in Use
Alpha Descaler and Alpha Descaler FG are non-fuming. This is very important for safety reasons, especially compared to the alternatives below: The most common chemical used for descaling is hydrochloric acid HCl based. Despite claims to the contrary HCl (claims tend to claim safety when used as directed which can mean a lot of things!) […]
Non-Corrosive to eyes and skin
Alpha Descaler and Alpha Descaler FG are non-corrosive to eyes and skin. This is a very important safety characteristic, especially compared to the alternatives used for descaling: Hydrochloric acid or HCl based chemicals are the most common formulations used in desaling. Despite claims to the contrary HCl (claims tend to claim safety when used as […]
Alpha Descaler vs Competitors in Metal Corrosion
Corrosion Rates of Alpha Descaler Products vs Two Common Competitive Mineral Acid Products Marketed as Safe Descalers John MacDonald III Date: 8/6/2019 Tests Performed by Green Products and Technologies, LLC. For Tech Sales Co. Introduction:Corrosion testing was conducted on three alloys commonly used in heat exchangers. Those alloys wereCDA706 (copper-nickel 90/10), CDA922 (bronze Navy M), […]
WHAT ABOUT CITRIC ACID AND LACTIC ACID FOR DESCALING
Citric and lactic acid are also used for descaling application and yes, they are indeed safer to use than mineral acids like Hcl. However, both citric and lactic acid is slow to act and while a weaker organic it can still be corrosive to metals. Citric acid can be a minor skin irritant, causing itchy […]
CAPACITY OF ALPHA DESCALER and ALPHA DESCALER FG
Both Alpha Descaler and Alpha Descaler FG are approximately equivalent in their capacity to dissolve scale to competitive formulations using 10% HCl. Typically mineral acid suppliers will keep concentrations of their Hcl products under 10% claiming greater safety in shipping and handling. Alpha Descaler will remove approximately 2 pounds of scale per US gallon. Alpha […]

Toxic verses Non-toxic using an HCl Based Product.
Chemicals may cause harm in many different ways. They may be flammable, explosive, radioactive, corrosive, etc. All chemicals are toxic at some level. The dose, however, determines the hazard. Every chemical has some set of exposure conditions in which it is toxic and, conversely, every chemical has some set of exposure conditions in which it […]
The Sixteen (16) Sections of the Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
The Global Harmonization System (GHS) is a product of the United Nations that embodies an international approach to hazard communication using an agreed upon criteria for classifying hazardous chemicals and a standardized method to communicate the hazards through use of container labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS). The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) within the U.S. Bureau of Labor has […]
ALPHA DESCALER dissolves waterscale, lime, mud and rust deposits safely, quickly and efficiently!
Specifications 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 […]
