Sum-Kool Descaler

Sum-Kool® is an effective and efficient heat transfer system cleaner designed to remove encrusted lime scale, rust, and corrosion products from water-wetted surfaces. Sum-Kool® is a neutral compound (no acid) and is based on chelating agents. The problems caused by water related scale, rust, and corrosion affect every industry from nuclear power plants to automobile engines. It has been shown that 1/16 of an inch of scale is equivalent to approximately 3 inches of steel in heat transferability.

Sum-Kool® is non-toxic, non-hazardous and biodegradable, is non-acid and does not require neutralization, operates in a pH range from 6.0 to 8.5 and can be safely disposed in municipal water handling operations.
