Why Limescale Protection?

TECHNICAL DAMAGE
Heating and/or swirling water can result in calcium build up in the plumbing and pipe walls, heating coils and heat exchangers, as well as in pumps and control valves. Pressure loss and narrowing of the pipeline cross-sections through to complete obstruction of the pipes is possible. This can result in unpleasant and often costly disruptions of the plumbing systems and technical facilities.

HYGIENE RISKS

  • Increased hygiene risks through biofilm build-up in the encrustations
  • Biofilms are the perfect habitat for undesirable microorganisms and pathogens
  • Makes chemical or thermal disinfection more difficult

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

  • Decreased heat transfer in the heating coils and heat exchangers; calcium deposits act as an insulator
  • This leads to higher maintenance costs
