Scalemaster® Electrolytic Limescale Inhibitors prevent limescale build-up by adding a small trace of zinc to the water. This has the effect of suppressing limescale formation by bonding to the dissolved calcium ions which then require more energy for precipitation. Any micro-crystals which form are then washed away by the water flow rather than adhering to heat-exchanger surfaces.
Laboratory research has shown a relationship between the amount of zinc dissolved and the reduction in limescale precipitation achieved, Scalemaster® Electrolytic Limescale Inhibitors incorporate patented technology to boost the supply of zinc In independent tests, application of the Scalemaster® electrolytic technology typically extends boiler life by 50% in hard water area by preventing limescale precipitation.
Note: Electrolytic Limescale Inhibitors are recommended for whole house applications.
