A California gas plant was experiencing heavy scale deposits in its entire plant cooling system.
- 6,600 gallons of RYDLYME was recommended for the 33,000-gallon system.
- Due to the large volume of water and low concentration of RYDLYME (20%), the system was divided into three isolated loops with each loop circulated with the solution for at least 2 hours.
- After the individual loop cleanings, all three were opened up and cleaned as a whole for an additional 8 hours.
In less than 24 hours, the entire system was free of deposits prompting our customer to tell us, 'We'll never rod another heat exchanger again!'
