Scale Inhibitors

Innovative chemistries, advanced monitoring and control systems, and expert support for your scale control challenges.

Meet your challenges head on with our proven solutions.

Impurities in industrial water and process streams can cause scale to form on equipment surfaces and in associated piping. Scale formation can negatively affect a variety of processes and ultimately the profitability of a plant. This is especially true with industrial operations that use large amounts of process water. The fact is mineral scale and inorganic hard scales can lead to any number of problems, including lost production, increased maintenance and utility costs, poor product quality and unscheduled downtime.

To help industrial operations overcome these issues, Solenis offers a comprehensive portfolio of scale inhibitors and antiscalants that address virtually every type of scale, including common calcium scales and less common barium, magnesium, manganese, silicate and sulfate scales. These products include proprietary scale control chemistries and uniquely formulated antiscalants that employ multiple scale control mechanisms, including dispersion, inhibition, crystal modification and sequestration, to effectivity reduce the potential for scale formation in industrial processes.

In addition to our scale control chemistries, we also offer a variety of cleaning products for removing existing scale deposits and novel scale analyzers that employ patented ultrasonic technology to detect and measure scale deposition as low as 1 micron, providing unparalleled scale measurement.
