causes several problems. Scale that forms with hard water increase energy
costs significantly. Our systems will rectify this quickly and
For Cooling Towers & Boilers: Scale or lime-scale is a hard, rock-like
deposit of mostly calcium salts that forms in heat exchangers and
cooling tower packing as a result of heat and increased concentration
factor. Scale formation impairs heat transfer, interferes with flow and
cooling, and can be a breeding ground for legionella bacteria. The scaling
tendency of a water supply will depend on the hardness of the water but if
not adequately treated even relatively soft waters can become highly scaling
when concentrated by evaporation. Cooling water scale control can be
achieved by treating hard water using the commercial Scaletron.
Scaletron Description: Chemical Free Scale Prevention Without The Use Of
Power Or Magnets
We provide an industry proven catalytic solution for scale prevention as an
alternative to conventional ion exchange systems that have been used in the
past. The commercial product Scaletron replaces a section of pipework and
can be specified without the need to make provision for floor space or
power. The Scaletron consists of a non-sacrificial lead free catalytic core
made from a special alloy housed within a non-reactive stainless steel (304)
The Scaletron can be easily installed to treat an entire system or to
protect individual components within a system. There are numerous commercial
applications from recirculating systems to single pass applications such as
water delivery pipe lines to buildings.
Built to accommodate plumbing sizes from 3/4" to 3" & Flow rates from 1gpm
What is lime scale ?
Limescale is the precipitation of calcium salts especially in hard water
areas when water is heated or there is a pressure drop, causing hard scale
to form in pipes, taps, heat exchangers, washing machines and combination
boilers. Limescale combines with soap making it lather less. It can clog an
entire plumbing system and leaves tidemarks on baths, sinks, basins, toilets
and taps that are difficult to remove.
How does Scaletron work?
Simply put, the Scaletron’s
catalytic core causes a reaction to take place that prevents scaling caused
by hard water.
Unlike conventional water softeners that physically remove minerals, the
catalytic reaction forces minerals associated with scale (calcium and
carbon) out of solution. These minerals are suspended in the form of
microscopic crystals (calcium carbonate in the aragonite state).
As a result of this treatment there are insufficient scale causing minerals
left in solution for scaling to occur as the water passes through the
Simple to install
Scaletron is simply plumbed in to the rising main and is available in 3/8″,
1/2″, 3/4″, 1″, 1-1/4″, 1-1/2″, 2″, 2-1/2″ and 3″ sizes to meet the most
common required commercial pipe sizes.
your systems and equipment
It inhibits the development of scale in both hot and cold water systems
reducing the formation of damaging hard scale deposits in appliances and
reduces the cost of energy that the presence of hard scale causes in heating
It adds zero chemicals, and uses no energy making it
entirely green and eco-friendly.
The lifespan of equipment and appliances could be lengthened by not having
hard water scale build up on them over time.
Benefits of a Scaletron
Scaletron gives most of the benefits of your typical water softener at a
fraction of the price, with additional benefits such as:
- Easy installation
- Fit and forget
- Uses no electricity
- Uses no chemicals
- Uses no salts
- No detrimental affect on
- No separate drinking water
supply is required
- Environment friendly
- No contaminated waste water
