SCALE-BANTM is an innovative concept in the field of hard water scale problems. It comes in the shape of a pipe and can be easily installed in the present cooling water circuit.

This On-line equipment does not require any energy for operation. It requires no regeneration or maintenance, resulting in Zero equipment down time and zero equipment deterioration.

The theory of working of SCALE-BAN TM is very simple. It makes the use of flow and chemical characteristics of water and precipitates out hardness causing salts of very small size as the water flows through SCALE-BAN TM

Theses salts are suspended in water because of being very light in weight and the turbulent flow of water. Thus, once the precipitation causing salts are precipitated and suspended in water, further precipitation because of temperature variation is not possible. The result is a totally scale free system.

ADVANTAGES OF SCALE-BAN TM :

PREVENTION OF SCALE
Due to its unique ability to precipitate dissolved solids into a colloidal suspension, scale tends to build up on these seed crystals rather than on the heat water transfer areas thereby preventing the deposition of scale on the heat transfer areas.

REMOVAL OF EXISTING SCALE
The reduction of the free Calcium and Magnesium from solution by the formation of these calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate crystals, and the solubility being constant, the water can dissolve more salts, which it tends to pick up from the existing scale in the system thereby desalting scaled up systems, under ideal conditions. However, as the solubility if affected by the changes in pH, temperature and pressure, the SCALE-BAN TM will descale only in ideal conditions of above parameters and hence it is not marketed as a scale remover but as a scale preventor.

ELIMINATES RECURRING COSTS OF EXPENSIVE CHEMICALS, REGENERATIVE SALTS, RESINS & ELECTRICITY
The SCALE-BAN TM has no recurring costs associated with Chemical Dosing or water Softening, as no chemicals, regenerative salts or resin are used.

CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF THE WATER DOES NOT CHANGE
SCALE-BAN TM does not change the composition of the water but instead changes the dissolved state to a suspended state there by preventing scale build up. The Chemistry of the water being the same it can be used in the process itself, for example in beer making.

NO CORROSION RISK
Water softeners necessitate the use of corrosion inhibitors, as the water tends to be corrosive. Similarly, Chemical Dosing reduces the pH of the water hereby increasing the risk of corrosion. SCALE-BAN TM on the other hand, has the unique advantage of preventing without increasing the risk of corrosion. However, if the Concentration of cycle is increased to a level that pH of water goes over recommended, some acid dosing may be required. This can be done by automatic dosing pump.

ELIMINATES RECURRING LABOR COST
SCALE-BAN TM is a fit-and- forget system and it does not require any labor or supervision for chemical addition or for regeneration salts as required for Chemical Dosing and water softener or DM plant.

REQUIRES NO MAINTENANCE LABOUR COSTS
SCALE-BAN TM has no moving parts and it requires no replacement or part maintenance at all.

SAVES FUEL CONSUMPTION
Scale reduce heat transfer efficiency resulting in increased energy use which can rise by almost 50% In AC systems, a 5 mm fouling of the condensers can result in an increase of power costs by over 30%. As the SCALE-BAN TM fitted online is constantly preventing the deposition of scale, thereby, saving valuable energy costs as compared to manual desalting systems, which requires desalting to be done periodically.

NO ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Unlike conventional water treatment systems, SCALE-BAN TM does not require any power or electrical inputs.

NO POLLUTION
Chemical Dosing and water Softening Systems necessitate the use of Chemical. Bleed is hazardous and comes in water pollution and hence have to be treated before the water is released into the underground water table. The SCALE-BAN TM , on the other hand does not require the use of any chemicals. Bleed water can be used in toilets and gardening.

CAN HANDLE VARIABLE WATER QUALITIES
In conventional systems, chemical has to be adjusted to the water quality and hence the systems has to be closely monitored for variable water qualities. The SCALE-BAN TM , on the other hand, is not effected, by variable water qualities and can handle water up to any hardness.

SAVES WATER
SCALE-BAN TM can be used with high TDS and high hardness. This feature enables SCALE-BAN TM when used in water circuit to go for high concentration of cycle (COC) thus resulting in phenomenon decrease of bleed of water, thus saving water. This feature also enables user to add tail of RO plants to the makeup water of the cooling towers thus saving tremendous quantity of water and decreasing the load on Evaporators. This feature is in line with Government of India circulation to power plants to save water.
