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), […]


Alpha Descaler vs citric acid and lactic acid products

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 […]

Testing the Effectiveness of Alpha Descaler and Alpha Descaler FG

Testing the effectiveness during a cleaning can be done two different ways. One is a simple calcium carbonate spot test of the circulating solution.  The other is by charting a trend in the pH of the cleaning solution. Perform these tests at regular intervals during the cleaning process. You need to also monitor the liquid […]


The word “inhibited HCl” is usually used to indicate hydrochloric acid with acid corrosion inhibitor.   Hydrochloric acid is usually used as diluted in water, particularly 3 to 10% which varies by the fouling characteristics and material in the system. Acid corrosion inhibitor means organic compound which adsorbs metal surface to protect metal from acid atmosphere. […]
