Chemtex manufactured product Sulfamic Acid serves as a descalant that can be used for the removal of process scales and water from industrial equipments. Sulfamic Acid serves as a superior cleaner and a potential descalant. Its aqueous solution shows the tendency to be less corrosive towards metals than other mineral acids.
It appears to be odorless, non-hygroscopic stable acid which is mildly soluble in water. For a long time it is being used in the industrial sectors as cleaning agent and descaler due to its remarkable property of solubilizing of hard scale and other deposits. Furthermore, it can be used safely over equipments made of stainless steels as it avoids pitting or chloride induced stress corrosion cracking.
Sulfamic Acid can be developed from fuming sulfuric acid and urea. It serves the Paper & Pulp Industry where it helps to prevent the degradation of pulp due to high temperature and permits bleaching. Apart from being a descaler, it also acts as a catalyst for esterification process and used as an ingredient in fire extinguishing media.
It serves in the elimination of hard water scale, protein deposits, copper corrosion, beer and milk stones and light rust. It cuts through excessive grout from tiling and solubilizing efflorescence from floors and walls. It finds applications in many desalination plants to clean heat exchanger, cooling water system, demisters, etc. It can be safely used on steel, iron, glass, wood equipments and with precaution can be also used on galvanized metal surfaces, copper, and aluminium.
