EcoClean® Scale Remover from Cortec® is a heavy-duty biodegradable scale and rust remover that is now a USDA Certified Biobased Product. As such, it is third party certified to contain 100% USDA certified biobased content. The product also exceeds minimum USDA certified biobased content requirements for metal cleaners and corrosion removers qualified for federal purchasing under the USDA BioPreferred® Program.
EcoClean is safe to use with metals such as iron, carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, magnesium, and various alloys. It dissolves heavy scale, corrosion, and naturally occurring oxides off the metals. This is important for improving flow in scale-obstructed water or drainage pipes and improving heat-transfer efficiency on heat-exchanger equipment by creating clean surfaces. Powerful corrosion inhibitors contained in the scale remover also protect treated metals from flash rust.
EcoClean can be applied in a water-soluble pouch form that will dissolve and release the non-toxic scale remover upon entry into the water. This is particularly convenient for circulating systems, as in many heat exchanger or pipe systems, since the product can be circulated to clean hard-to-reach areas without costly equipment dismantling. The scale remover also saves on labor by reducing the cost of surface preparation. The product is easily biodegradable and safe and easy to dispose.
The USDA BioPreferred® Program encourages the purchase and use of biobased products made from renewable resources. The USDA BioPreferred® Program has identified 97 categories of products required to have a minimum biobased content when purchased by federal agencies and contractors. The program also carries a voluntary labeling initiative that helps consumers identify biobased products more easily through the use of the USDA Certified Biobased Product label, which requires third-party verification of the product’s biobased content. EcoClean® Biodegradable Scale and Rust Remover now meets requirements for both aspects of the USDA BioPreferred® Program.
By using renewable resources to make a 100% biobased product, Cortec has created a simple, effective, and environmentally friendly way to preserve the quality of water systems and help them run at greater efficiency. Now as an official USDA Certified Biobased Product, EcoClean Biodegradable Scale and Rust Remover is an even more attractive choice for all your descaling and de-rusting needs.
EcoClean is also available in an easy-to-ship powder form and a ready-to-use liquid form. The EcoClean Scale Remover water soluble pouch is available in 2.2 pound bags (four bags per carton). The EcoClean Scale Remover powder is available in five pound, 50 pound, and 100 pound bags. EcoClean Scale Remover liquid is available in five gallon pails, 55 gallon drums, liquid totes, and in bulk.
