In detergents, hard water ions inactivate the anionic surfactants, rendering them useless at solubilizing dirt.  The accumulation of salts into scale… Read more

Synergistic Water Treatment

Water treatment is a balancing act of chemistry and temperature. Maintaining the pH and keeping all of the dissolved minerals in solution at temperatures where they would ordinarily precipitate out is no easy feat. Scale buildup can be costly, and not just because it makes heat exchange less efficient. It can interfere with the laminar… Read more
