Arkema’s Scaleva® is a powerful new generation acid for efficient derusting and descaling applications, especially for the tough calcium scales targeted by dairy and brewery cleaning formulations. For (clean-in-place) CIP and (blast-in-place) BIP systems, Scaleva® helps reduce cleaning time and waste treatment costs.
- Promotes rapid attack on carbonate and oxide scales
- Enhanced dissolution and removal of salts for potential rinse reduction
- Less damaging to pipes, fixtures, and vessels compared to other strong acids
- Dilute solutions safe for discharge to waste treatment facilities
- High thermal stability and non-oxidizing
- Compatitble with non-ionic surrfactants and most biocides
- Faster reactions
- Improved processing
- Nitrogen and phosphorus free
- Strong acidity (with low-corrosion
- Non-oxidizing and non-foaming
- High solubility of post-cleaning salts for dissolution and removal
- Stable with strong oxidizing agents (formulates safely with hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid)
Scaleva® is the solution for descaling applications including cooling towers, evaporative coolers, hot water boilers, processing equipment and more.
Scaleva® is used in Food & Beverage, concrete, household, petrochemicals, and formulated cleaner applications.
Scaleva® is the best acid choice to replace fuming, weak, and environmentally polluting acid.
At the same active concentrations, Scaleva® does a better job in 15 minutes than phosphoric acid does after 45 minutes.
For stainless steel cleaning that requires high acid content, we recommend our MSA LC grade.
Scaleva® is REACH certified and NSF registered. It contains no phosphorus or nitrogen, making it environmentally friendly and less corrosive than other strong acids. It is listed as a safer chemical by EPA and is biodegradable.
Scaleva® can be formulated with a number of products to improve overall efficiency and efficacy of your cleaning mixtures. This may reduce the number of cleaning steps involved and the amount of water used.
Scaleva® is available in drums, totes and bulk. Contact a specialist for a free sample.
