Stainless steel - Descaling

|Lime scale

Scale mainly develops in hot water plants when calcium content is reduced. If initial treatments prove to be insufficient, scale progressively builds up and may cause, among others, major loss of plant and equipment performance.


|Descaling, specific procedures

Descaling requires specific procedures in order not to damage the materials treated. Technochim uses solutions which are generally nitric, sulfamic or hydrochloric acid based, depending on the materials present.



Alongside traditional descaling, Technochim has developed a product based on sulfamic acid and corrosion inhibitors which enables galvanised steel plant and equipment to be descaled.
