Alimex Descaler

Alimex Descaler

Alimex is a water-based chemical formulated to safely clean lime scale and corrosion from water-wetted surfaces. It contains wetting agents, corrosion inhibitors and degreasing compounds to help penetrate and carry away the scale and corrosion. This product is specifically designed to be used on equipment that contains aluminum that cannot be safely cleaned with other scale removing compounds.

When used as directed, Alimex is non-corrosive and will not affect the following: aluminum, stainless steel, carbon steel, brass, admiralty metal, copper, iron, lead, PVC plastic, polyethylene, rubber leather, and most materials found in water-wetted equipment. Alimex is not recommended for zinc, galvanized steel, or alloys of magnesium.

Alimex is non-toxic, non-corrosive, and non-flammable when used as directed. It is biodegradable and can be safely put into the sewer in the spent condition. It also has a built-in indicator which changes color when the solution is 95+ percent spent. When the solution begins to turn blue, it should be added to or changed if the equipment is not clean.

Recommended uses

Alimex is a water-based chemical descaler formulated for the safe removal of scale from water-wetted aluminum surfaces. Aided by wetting agents, corrosion inhibitors and degreasing agents, it effectively loosens and removes deposits from critical aluminum components such as heat exchangers, fin fans, and any other aluminum coated surface.
