Siliphos Polyphosphate

SILIPHOS prevents 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 its phosphate and silicate content, SILIPHOS also inhibits corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the metal surface. A SILIPHOS concentration of 2-3 ppm is sufficient to achieve both of these effects.

Description

What can ANTISCALANT BALLS / SILIPHOS do for you?

Most natural waters cause damages to pipes, boilers, and other installations. Some contain dissolved minerals, mainly calcium and magnesium salts. Such waters are referred to as being hard.
Hard Waters form scale in pipes and boilers. This leads to a decrease in water pressure and increased energy demand. Clogged pipes may have to be replaced. Heating coils may overheat and fail.
Soft Waters are aggressive to metals and cause corrosion. Consequently, the tap water turns brown. Leaks and burst pipes may be the results.

  • protects water systems in hotels, public buildings, private households, and industry against scale formation and corrosion.
  • prevents so-called ‘brown’ or ‘red’ water and clogged pipes
  • save expensive repairs or even replacement of water pipes, boilers, heaters, cooling systems, etc.
  • helps to save energy
  • extends the life of your water installation.

SILIPHOS prevents 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 its phosphate and silicate content, SILIPHOS also inhibits corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the metal surface. A SILIPHOS concentration of 2-3 ppm is sufficient to achieve both of these effects.
SILIPHOS will also slowly remove the existing scale in old pipes if it consists of brown scale, i.e. iron oxide. Hard scale, i.e. calcium carbonate cannot so easily be removed by SILIPHOS. Here the advantage is again that SILIPHOS will prevent further scaling up. Experience shows that scale and corrosion are 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 a 1mm scale on the heating coils of a boiler, increases the energy cost by 15%. SILIPHOS consists of 100% active substances. The use of tap water and other types of freshwater at the prescribed dosage is inoffensive.
Siliphos 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.
