  • RYDLYME Biodegradable Descaler
    Used to safely and efficiently dissolve tough mineral deposits, such as water scale, lime scale, calcium, and rust....

  • RYDLYME is used for boilerschillerscooling towerscondensersheat exchangersstruvite and even more.

    Recommended by the U.S. Navy and countless OEMs, RYDLYME descaling chemical is NSF-registered for use in various industries and applications including beverage, pharmaceutical, bottling and food processing plants, as well as NSF/ANSI Standard 60-certified as a cleaner for potable systems.

    RYDLYME descaler is as much as 12x faster than other chemical descalers, with most cleaning applications completed within a few hours. Unlike mechanical cleaning methods (e.g. brushing, rodding, hydoblasting), RYDLYME descaler can be circulated through equipment or system without arduous and costly dismantling. For many plants and facilities, a shutdown can cost thousands, even millions of dollars. In most cases, an online or direct injection cleaning with RYDLYME descaler can be setup for circulation or single-pass to avoid a shutdown!

    RYDLYME  descaler is the ONLY product of its kind that is truly non-toxic and non-hazardous! Unlike other chemical descalers and traditional harsh acids, RYDLYME descaler can be safely handled by personnel (you can even hold it in your hand without injury!) and there are NO transportation or handling restrictions! It can be safely disposed in normal plant sewers, even in the case of an accidental spill at full concentration! 

    RYDLYME  descaler is certified by an EPA-approved testing laboratory as a fully biodegradable and environmentally non-hazardous chemical, even at 100% concentration WITHOUT neutralization! While other chemical descalers claim to be biodegradable, it does not equate to overall safety. In fact, some of them are classified as hazardous chemicals and have special handling requirements.

  • RYDALL HD Heavy-Duty Degreaser
    RYDALL HD is our new biodegradable, non-hazardous, citrus based, Heavy-Duty industrial degreaser. It is a water soluble, non-butyl, non-phosphate, non-corrosive, emulsifier....

  • The way in which RYDALL HD heavy duty industrial degreaser works, is that the chemical component of the cleaning solution demulsifies the light carbons with non-aggressive ingredients. It breaks the oil bond that holds together all of the different hydrocarbons that comprise the fouling residue. Our highly concentrated RYDALL HD heavy duty industrial degreaser is utilized in a diluted format and is typically heated to between 140-160ºF (60-71ºC), but may also be used at ambient temperatures. As such, the water component becomes an integral part of the RYDALL HD heavy duty industrial degreaser flushing the demulsified particles off of the fouled surfaces. The heavier hydrocarbons (tars, cokes, varnishes, etc.) are washed out as well, even if they are not completely emulsified. This is because the underlying principle of our chemistry is to simply break the oil bonds that are holding all of the particles together to release them so they can be easily removed by the flowing solution. Thus, restoring flow rates and volumes, ultimately returning your equipment back to “as new” or peak operating efficiency.

    Although most every RYDALL HD heavy duty industrial degreaser application is slightly different, and technically covered under a case-by-case basis, the fundamentals are essentially the same. Use at 25-50% dilution for circulation applications, pumping in the bottom, up and through the top of the equipment for the prescribed amount of hours (typically 4-6 hours). For surface and pressure washer applied applications, dilute at 10-50% depending on the severity of the surface contamination.
