Scale inhibition by V-GUARD 234 is accomplished with a polymer blend that inhibits the formation of hardness-based scale crystals and disperses the resulting aborted scale fragments in the boiler water.
The polymer blend incorporates thermally stable, iron-tolerant polymers which effectively disperse iron oxide in boiler water. This action prevents iron from forming insulating deposits on heat transfer surfaces. Antifoam is also present to stabilise the boiler water, thus reducing the tendency of foam-induced carryover.
V-GUARD 234 contains an inert fluorescent dye which allows easy product measurement in feed water and boiler water using a handheld or online fluorometer.
- Effective against a wide range of deposit-forming contaminants found within the boiler system such as iron, hardness, silica and organic materials.
- Provides added protection against elevated levels of hardness during periods of poor feedwater quality control.
- All polymer formulation will not form chemical deposits in boiler if product is overdosed.
- Easy testing – no sample preparation or chemical testing required to measure product residual.
