- A descaling agent or chemical descaler is a chemical substance used to remove limescale from metal surfaces in contact with hot water.
- Limescale is a chalky off-white crust that remains behind kettles or boilers.
- When you use citric acid you will need an acid-to-water ratio of about one part acid to 20 parts water.
Water carrier products are being considered as one of the essential products that are being used in day-to-day life. Products such water kettles, water bottles, water taps, hot water dispensers, washing machines are being used in large scale in both households as well as commercial level. However, these products encounter with various negative effect due to its exposure to various potentially harmful substances. Limescale is one harmful negative side effect incurring in these kinds of water carrier products. Limescale is a chalky off-white crust that remains behind kettles or boilers. Limescale is an essentially harmful substance that acclimates on surfaces causing malfunctioning of the water carrier products altogether. As a result, these kinds of water products requires time-to-time maintenance which eventually triggers demand for products such as descalers. Descaler consists of several chemical substances which have the ability to remove limescales on water carrier products.
Products such as water bottles, water taps, water kettles, washing machines are being considered as some of the essential consumer good products used in large scale in the household as well as commercial sectors. These products at the same time, are most likely to incur negative side effects such as limescales. If not treated at the right time, these limescales will result in an ugly layer of an off-white substance that can cause blockage of water. Inorder to avoid such malfunctioning on water carrier product, descaler plays an important role. Descaler helps in removing the limescales maintaining smooth flow of water especially hard water. Descaler not only removes limescales but also remove other potentially harmful substances such as calcium, rust, water scale buildup, mud or any other non-soluble deposits. Descaler is effectively being used in coffee machines as well. Limescale in coffee machine proves hazardous to users’ health since it affects the taste of the coffee or milk stored in it. As a result, descaler help in avoiding such critical circumstances. Descalers has its application in bathrooms as well as toilets.
