What is a Marine Descaler?

From workboats to cruise ships, commercial marine vessels are relied upon to complete vital tasks. Significant downtime for maintenance or repair can not only be costly but also detrimental to a company or even a Coast Guard fleet. 

Marine descalers are chemical compounds designed to improve the performance of vital water systems in the maritime industry by safely dissolving deposits, such as:

  • Water Scale/Calcium
  • Rust
  • Lime Scale
  • Barnacles
  • Zebra Mussels
  • Tiger Shells

What do Marine Descalers Clean?

Marine descalers can be used to descale and clean a large variety of systems including:

  • Boilers
  • Condensers
  • Keel Coolers
  • Tube Bundles
  • Bow Thrusters
  • Engine Cooling Systems
  • Heat Exchangers
  • Air Conditioning
  • Main and Aux Sea
  • Water Systems

RYDLYME Marine Approach

To begin, 165 gallons of RYDLYME Marine was diluted with 165 gallons of water. The solution was then circulated throughout the system for 6 hours via a magnetic drive pump.

RYDLYME Marine Results

Although the system had never been cleaned, RYDLYME Marine was able to completely dissolve the mineral deposits and rust throughout, improving its operating efficiency and overall cleanliness. The crew was amazed at how well and quickly it worked, stating that the vessel was close to “like new” condition. 

The crew also praised the overall safeness and biodegradability of RYDLYME Marine. RYDLYME Marine is safe for equipment, personnel, and of course… the environment! 

There is no need for the time-consuming and costly removal of scale on equipment, such as coolers or condensers with RYDLYME Marine. Simply circulate RYDLYME Marine throughout the system, flush with water and head back out to sea!

RYDLYME Marine is 100% Biodegradable & Safe to Handle!

RYDLYME Marine is non-toxic and non-hazardous! Unlike other chemical descalers and traditional harsh acids, RYDLYME Marine can be safely handled by personnel — you can even hold it in your bare hand without injury!
