Advanced safe descaling
ARC360 is an Advanced safe descaling which can be used for multi purpose.
Product is an acid replacement formulation for manual and cleaning in place (CIP) descaling operations of a variety of on-board process equipment which become scaled during use, such as vacuum toilet pipework, plate heat exchangers, evaporators, coolers and fresh water generators.
A further advantage of ARC360 is that it contains a powerful degreasing capability within the formulation and can therefore operate in the presence of oil and grease contamination, when other products require a separate degreasing step before descaling can begin.
With all descalers the pH rises as the alkaline scale is dissolved and the descaling efficiency reduces at the same time. The Advanced safe descaling solution can be optimised by adding further ARC360 product as the alkalinity rises.
What is Urea Hydrochloride?
Urea Hydrochloride is a white crystalline powder that is soluble in water and ethanol. It is a nitrogen-based compound that is widely used in various industries as a descaling agent.
It is a safer and more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional descaling chemicals, such as hydrochloric acid, phosphoric acid, and sulfuric acid.
How Does Urea Hydrochloride Work?
Urea Hydrochloride is an effective descaling agent due to its ability to dissolve mineral deposits and scales. When mixed with water, it forms a strong acidic solution that can break down calcium, magnesium, and other mineral deposits that form scales on equipment and machinery.
Urea Hydrochloride works by attacking the bonds that hold these mineral deposits together, causing them to dissolve and loosen from the surface. This makes it easier to remove the scales through flushing or mechanical means.

Benefits of Using Urea Hydrochloride for Descaling
One of the significant benefits of using Urea Hydrochloride for descaling is that it is a safer alternative to traditional descaling chemicals. Urea Hydrochloride is classified as a non-hazardous material, making it safer for operators to handle and use.
It does not emit harmful fumes, and it is not corrosive to equipment and machinery, reducing the risk of damage and equipment failure.
Another benefit of using Urea Hydrochloride is that it is more environmentally friendly. Traditional descaling chemicals can be harmful to the environment, as they can contaminate water and soil.
Urea Hydrochloride, on the other hand, is biodegradable and does not leave harmful residues. It is also water-soluble, making it easier to dispose of safely. Urea Hydrochloride is also more cost-effective than traditional descaling chemicals.
While it may be slightly more expensive initially, it can save companies money in the long run. This is because Urea Hydrochloride is less corrosive to equipment and machinery, reducing the need for repairs and replacements. It also requires less flushing and cleaning, reducing water and energy consumption.
Urea Hydrochloride as ARC360 is a safe, effective, and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional descaling chemicals. It offers numerous benefits, including improved safety, reduced environmental impact, and cost savings. With the increasing focus on sustainability and safety in industries, Urea Hydrochloride is a smart choice for descaling operations.
