Chemistry and Mode of Action
ACUMER 1000 is a low molecular weight polyacrylate with a selected molecular weight around 2000 to optimize the anti-scale performance through at least three mechanisms:
ACUMER 1000 polymer is a general purpose scale inhibitor as it is effective to inhibit precipitation of calcium carbonate, calcium oxalate, calcium sulfate, barium sulfate, and other low solubility salts.
–Scale inhibition in open recirculating cooling circuits (CaCO3 scale in particular).
–Dispersant for boiler sludge control.
Benefits of ACUMER 1000
Freezing or long term cold storage of ACUMER 1000 may cause some separation of the components. Although product performance is not impaired as long as the whole container is heated and well mixed, it is recommended to keep ACUMER 1000 from freezing.
ACUMER 1000 complies with the FDA Food Additives regulations indicated below, provided that the final
formulation meets the limitations and other conditions prescribed by the regulation:
173.310 Boiler water additives.
176.170 Components of paper, paperboard in contact with aqueous and fatty food.
176.180 Components of paper, paperboard in contact with dry food.
