can be a major problem when it occurs in the internal pipe work
or water heating elements of kitchen equipment which uses running
mains water and heating elements, such as dishwashers, combi-ovens,
coffee machines and vending machines. It can even be a potentially
dangerous cause of overheating in these appliances.Where
scale build-up occurs in internal pipework, it restricts the flow
of water causing serious and expensive damage to equipment. Where
scale build-up occurs on heating elements, it insulates the elements
and forces them to use far more energy than needed to heat the
water, leading to early burn-out. The fact that a catering business
may be in an area of the UK officially classified as a soft-water
region is not an excuse for not fitting a water softener treatment
device, because there is still a risk. There are dissolved salts
in all types of water and scale build-up will occur eventually.
Even when the normal water supply is considered to have soft water,
should the water be drawn from deep boreholes in times of drought,
its hardness level will change. Additionally, water companies
move water around from region to region through underground pipe
work, which also changes the hardness level.
in hard water areas leads to high running costs of heating
and hot water systems used in both building services and industrial
applications. In the UK, the cost of limescale formation to
industry environment through wasting energy is equally significant.
Studies have revealed that a 25mm thick layer of limescale
on a heat exchange surface reduces heat transfer by 90% and
this has significant implications for energy costs. Just a
1mm layer of limescale increases energy costs by 7.5%, while
a 12mm layer raises energy costs by 65%.
