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. © OTHER CHEMICALS and products used during descaling NEUTRALISING CRYSTALS FOAMBREAKER ANTI-FOAM LIQUID ZnI INHIBITOR pH & LITMUS PAPER A crystalline powder for solution in water, to neutralise descaling chemicals before disposal. Also used as a 0.5% solution after descaling, to neutralise any residual acidity. A concentrated liquid additive to prevent excessive foaming when descaling, and to suppress existing foam.

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.
