FOOD GRADE
DESCALING CHEMICAL.
Safe to handle and store, but a
strong acid when dissolved in
water. Non fuming. Safe to use
with steel, stainless steel, cast
iron, copper brass, aluminium,
PVC, polythene, propylene
and most plastics / rubbers.
Dissolves up to 50% of its own
weight of scale.
Descaling liquid for pipework,
radiators, heating & cooling systems and equipment
with either rust and limescale
deposits. Dissolves iron oxides
at ambient temperatures.
Non fuming. Safe to use with
steel, stainless steel, cast iron,
copper brass and most plastics
/ rubbers.
Powerful and economic liquid
for use in cleaning heavily scaled equipment, where
speed and high solvency
power are critical. Rapidly
dissolves limescale, and rust.
Contains wetting agents to
penetrate heavy deposits.
Safe to use with steel, cast
iron, copper, brass, and most
plastics.
Biodegradable crystals for
solution in water. Very safe
to handle and store. Removes
limescale deposits from equipment used for food preparation and catering. Non fuming
and non toxic. Safe to use with
steel, stainless steel, cast iron,
copper, brass, aluminium and
most plastics.
Kamco descaling chemicals are comprehensively inhibited to prevent corrosion of equipment being descaled, and incorporate a red to yellow pH colour change to give a visual check on solution strength.

General usage and application notes
As a general guide, the rate at which
deposits are dissolved increases with
higher solution temperatures. Lower
Scalebreaker use concentrations will
require higher water temperatures for
best effect.

The prepared solution may be used to
soak the equipment to be descaled and
cleaned, although the process is significantly faster when the solution is circulated vigorously by means of a suitable
pump, such as Scalebreaker tank mounted
pumps.
When limescale is being dissolved, carbon
dioxide gas is evolved, and may cause
foaming, dependent on the amount of
scale present. Allowance should be made
for the volume of foam when descaling
commences. Should this be a problem,
add Foambreaker at the recommended
dosage.
Descaling may be considered complete
when there is no further evolution of
carbon dioxide, seen as bubbling in the
solution, or in the return hose to a pump,
but the Scalebreaker solution is still
pink. If deposits have not been completely removed, and yet the solution has
changed colour to amber/yellow, either
add further Scalebreaker, or repeat the
cleaning process.
After the descaling operation, drain the
Scalebreaker solution, neutralise with
Neutralising Crystals, and dispose of
safely. Rinse or flush the descaled equipment thoroughly with clean water.
CAUTION: Scalebreaker chemicals and
their solutions are acidic, and therefore
suitable protective clothing, gloves, and
goggles, should be worn.
Refer to appropriate Material Safety Data
Sheet before use. These are available
from Kamco.
CAUTION: When descaling with any acid,
there is a possibility of flammable hydrogen gas being evolved, and the working
area should be well ventilated. Avoid
smoking nearby, or any other means of
ignition.
