Specialized High Performance Anti-scalent for Evaporator and Process Waters such as Mining, Iron and Steel, Paper & Pulp, Sugar Processing and Critical Heat Exchange Operations.

MMA-L70-PIC is a specialized reacted polymer containing polymeric anti-scalents, sequestrants and dispersants. It is designed to inhibit precipitation of calcium, magnesium and iron salts in the form of carbonate, sulphate and oxalate compounds. It is also effective in the binding of other metallic salts such as aluminium, zinc, strontium and barium.

Application & Control

MMA-L70-PIC is dosed as follows:

Dosage required will vary according to the potential precipitative salts present and a
detailed analysis of the process water is recommended.

Depending upon water flow velocities and applicable cycles of concentration, dosages will
vary from 3 mg/l to 20mg/l. MMA-L70-PIC is specifically utilized where total hardness can reach 800mg/l as CaCO3 or where calcium sulphate presence is at 2500mg/l as CaSO4.
MMA-L70-PIC may be applied online as an descalent, but higher residuals will be required – estimate 100-200mg/l.

There is a direct test method to determine product residual in these systems.

Innovation: It’s part of our DNA

Large enough to deliver. Small enough to care.

Innovation is everywhere at Blue Reef. For example, the chemical products which we have produced for the anti-scalent market are unique in every way. Our “HEXAMER” based products are formulated and manufactured employing processes previously never used in the manufacture of water treatment products.
Not only does this make the products far more stable than traditional inhibitors, but one is able to actually test for the active aspect in the product. This takes scale inhibition and scale removal to a new level in that chemical dosing rates can be calculated very accurately resulting in cost savings and increased efficacy.

A further innovation is that all of our products are available in liquid and dehydrated powder form. These dry products are unique. All that one has to do to produce a liquid version of the same product is to “JUST ADD WATER” and mix.

This makes for transportation of product over long distance/over border logistics extremely easy as packing for transportation is far easier and so much safer.
