DetailsEco-Lyme is a new odorless chemistry for the HVAC/R market that provides a unique blend of performance and safety to the environment and user. The product is specially formulated to achieve descaling behavior of competing hydrochloric acid based descalers. However, the active ingredient is substantially safer on equipment metals. Eco-Lyme is ideal for stainless steel construction - eliminates the issue of localized corrosion/pitting caused by repeated use of hydrochloric acid.Eco-Lyme is readily biodegradable per OECD 301A, a recognized international method for determining biodegradability for applicable chemistry. Eco-Lyme uniquely provides top-tier performance with a validated eco-profile when a 'green' descaler is sought.
Eco-Lyme is formulated to remove scale, rust and other water deposits from cooling towers, evaporative condensers, hot water boilers, processing equipment and more. Scale affects the performance, efficiency, and potentially design life of the equipment. For cooling tower applications, scale restricts water flow and quickly reduces heat transfer capability of the heat exchanger resulting in elevated high side pressure of the refrigerant system. Excessive high side pressure causes the compressor to draw extra current, which leads to increase power cost over time and may lead to a shorten life. In addition, the scale in the heat exchanger dramatically affects the capability of the equipment to operate at a designed condition. Nu-Calgon offers a family of products for water treatment to prevent scale build-up in cooling towers and evaporative condensers. For other situations when scale must be addressed, Eco-Lyme is the 'green' solution.
Eco-Lyme is ideal for heat exchanger descaling of hot water boilers due to its desired performance and is safer on ferrous and aluminum materials used in heat exchanger construction (see table on back page). Eco-Lyme is advantageous for descaling processing equipment (tanks and/or lines) of a stainless steel and/or aluminum construction. Eco-Lyme provides superior descaling capability, while having similar metal compatibility of phosphoric acid traditionally used in these applications.
