Anti-scaling or anti-scale are surface active substances that prevent the formation of scale on the surface of membranes by interfering with the deposition reaction.
Over the past two decades, a new generation of anti-fouling agents has emerged commercially, in which the active ingredients are often a mixture of different molecular polycarboxylates and polyacrylates. Antiscalants are widely used to prevent fouling of pipes, heat exchangers and membranes. In most applications, reverse osmosis membranes and their incorrect current flow, without the use of current intensity and prohibition due to the deposition of soluble salts. Common examples of sediments are calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, barium sulfate and strontium sulfate, silica and calcium fluoride are not common sediments but their presence in the system is problematic. Our antifouling agents inhibit sediments while also dispersing colloidal particles in solution. Inhibition and diffusion are product features that help increase system operating time, reduce cleaning frequency, and increase the efficiency of RO molecules.
This product is also known by other names such as anti-scaling, descaling, anti-scaling, descaling, reverse osmosis water treatment systems and membrane cleaning solution.
Types of anti-scalant or anti-fouling
Anti-fouling is often used in conjunction with anti-corrosion. Anti-fouling is divided into two main categories:
Thermodynamic anti-sediments are complexing and chelating agents used for specific sediments. But in relation to the kinetic function of anti-sediments, it is related to their specific space mechanisms.
How anti-fouling works
Anti-fouling works in two ways:
Absorption effects occur when antifouling occupies the nucleation sites and the crystals do not find active sites to adhere to the surface, thus stopping the crystalline nucleation. Other anti-fouling mechanisms are based on deformation, which prevents the formation of crystals in the presence of anti-fouling.
Ideal anti-fouling has the following features:
