Antiscalant balls are pretreatment products formulated to prevent,
rather than remove, scaling and inorganic fouling. A preventative
system maintenance program with the antiscalant balls reduces
membrane cleaning requirements while enhancing your RO system
It is an economic and reliable water treatment system for potable
and industrial water. It consists of glass-like polyphosphate
silicate spheres and dispensers of variable size. It prevents scale
and stops corrosion.
What can ANTISCALANT BALLS do for you?
Most natural waters cause damages in RO membranes, pipes,
boilers and other installations. Some contain dissolved minerals,
mainly calcium and magnesium salts. Such waters are referred to as
Hard Waters form scale in membranes, pipes and boilers. This
leads to a decrease in water pressure and an increased energy
demand. Clogged pipes may have to be replaced. Heating coils may
overheat and fail.
Hard Waters are aggressive to metals and cause corrosion.
Consequently the tap water turns brown. Leaks and burst pipes may be

households and industry against scale formation and corrosion.

ANTISCALANT BALLS prevent scale and stops corrosion. It
utilizes the phenomenon that minute concentrations of polyphosphates
are sufficient to inhibit the deposition of scale onto metallic
surfaces. Because of their phosphate and silicate content,
ANTISCALANT BALLS also inhibits corrosion by forming a thin
protective layer on the metal surface. A concentration of 2-3 ppm is
sufficient to achieve both of these effects.
ANTISCALANT BALLS will also slowly remove existing scale in
old pipes if it consists of brown scale, i.e. ironoxide. Hard scale,
i.e. calcium carbonate cannot so easily be removed by ANTISCALANT
BALLS. Here the advantage is again that ANTISCALANT BALLS will
prevent further scaling up. Experience shows that scale and
corrosion is not only found in galvanized but also in copper pipes.
Even in plastic pipes one can find scale and deposits.
As a rule of thumb one can say that 1 mm scale on the heating
coils of a boiler, increases the energy cost by 15%. ANTISCALANT
BALLS consists of 100% active substance. The use in tap water and
other types of fresh water at the prescribed dosage is inoffensive.
ANTISCALANT BALLS dispensers can be installed in almost every
water system. They require no electric installation and hardly any
maintenance. They only have to be refilled with spheres every 3 - 6
months. Refilling is very easy.
ANTISCALANT BALLS protect membrane of domestic RO systems and
ensures long life of membranes.
It can be used in private houses, hotels, office buildings, schools
and hospitals for the treatment of potable water. It is also applied
in small and medium sized industrial estates for the treatment of
cooling systems, autoclaves, machine cooling etc.
