SCALEBREAKER LS3

SPRAY-ON LIQUID BOILER CLEANING CHEMICAL FOR CORROSION-TYPE DEPOSITS IN OIL & COAL-FIRED BOILERS

SCALEBREAKER LS3 boiler cleaning liquid is formulated to react with and dissolve the corrosion-type deposits found when boilers are fired on sulphur-containing fuels.

These deposits (light in colour and very hard) are often bonded to the metal itself, requiring heavy brushing or scraping to remove.

SCALEBREAKER LS3 reacts with deposits immediately, destroying their structure and adhesion. The evolution of harmless gases breaks down and separates deposits from the bare metal so that they may be easily removed with a "wet" vacuum cleaner.

SCALEBREAKER LS3 is an 'off-line' cleaner for use on cold or slightly warm boilers, and is ideal for end of season boiler cleaning.

  • INSTRUCTIONS
  • PACK SIZES

Application & usage:

Loose scale and deposits should first be removed by brush or vacuum cleaner.

Depending on the thickness of scale, make up a solution of one part Scalebreaker LS3 to one, two, or three parts of water. This solution should then be sprayed on to the fouled surfaces once they have cooled down to below 50°C, starting at the top, until all heat transfer surfaces have been soaked.

Deposits immediately begin to effervesce and dissolve. Allow to react for 10 - 15 minutes. Heavily fouled boilers may require a second application.

At this stage, the deposits have been neutralised and will fall away with no further action as the boiler dries out. It can be advantageous to refire the boiler for 10 minutes, causing the treated residues to break up and fall away from heat transfer surfaces.

When cleaning sectional boilers, the use of a 'wet' vacuum cleaner is the most convenient way to removing the damp debris from the floor of the boiler.

CAUTION: As a mild alkaline liquid, Scalebreaker LS3 is safe to handle and does not harm the skin. It should be treated with respect as for any chemical product, and gloves are advised, along with eye protection.

Splashes to the eyes should be washed out immediately with copious quantities of water. Spray equipment should be washed thoroughly after use, in order to avoid corrosion of any copper or brass components.
