Chemistry and Mode of Action
ACUMER 2000 copolymer combines two functional groups: strong acid (sulfonate) and weak acid (carboxylate) that provide optimal anti-scale/dispersant efficiency through the following different mechanisms:
ACUMER 2000 polymer is designed to provide superior stabilization of calcium phosphate. It also demonstrates excellent stabilization of zinc and calcium carbonate. In addition ACUMER 2000 is a strong dispersant in keeping the silt and commonly encountered inorganic particules suspended and in preventing their settling out onto heat transfer surfaces.
Taking advantage of all its complementary properties and high performance as a stabilizer, anti-scalent and dispersant, ACUMER 2000 is particularly recommended for the majorities of the cooling water treatment programs:
ACUMER 2000 has a synergic effect with the other additives in preventing scale as well as corrosion.
Benefits of ACUMER 2000
If a traceable polymer is required, OPTIDOSE™ 2000 offers identical performance to ACUMER 2000, with the ability to detect 0.5 ppm - 15 ppm without interferences.
