Recommended Use Directions

For descaling boilers, heat exchangers etc.
Obtain a sample of the scale so that a bucket test can be carried out to ensure that the scale type is suitable for treatment using CMC 5010. Silica on its own will not be affected. At the same time assessment can be made of the concentration required in relation to the speed of clean necessary.
Use CMC 5010 at a 10% dilution in water for treating the system. Components which can be removed are soaked in CMC 5010 and rinsed off with water. Dilute CMC 5010 according to contamination and time permitted but a general guide for immersion is 1 part CMC 5010 with 2 parts water. Always thoroughly rinse cleaned components and treat with
a suitable rust preventative if required.
NB okay for glass lined boilers if sure not cracked, as product may lie in crevices. If unsure use inhibited Sulphamic Acid.
