What is SILIPHOS?
SILIPHOS is an economic and reliable water treatment system for potable and industrial water. It consists of glass-like polyphosphate silicate spheres and dispensers of variable size.
SILIPHOS prevents scale and stops corrosion. It utilizes the phenomenon that minute concentrations of polyphosphates are sufficient to inhibit the deposition of scale onto metallic surfaces. Because of its phosphate and silicate content SILIPHOS also inbibits corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the metal surface. A SILIPHOS concentration of 2 – 3 ppm is sufficient to achieve both of these effects.
SILIPHOS will also slowly remove existing scale in old pipes if it consists of brown scale, i.e. ironoxide. Hard scale, i.e. calcium carbonate cannot so easily be removed by SILIPHOS. Here the advantage is again that SILIPHOS will prevent further scaling up. Experience shows that scale and corrosion is not only found in galvanized but also in copper pipes. Even in plastic pipes one can find scale and deposits.
As a rule of thumb one can say that 1mm scale on the heating coils of a boiler, increases the energy cost by 15%. SILIPHOS consists of 100% active substance. The use in tap water and other types of fresh water at the prescibed dosage is inoffensive. The components of SILIPHOS comply with FAO/WHO standards.
The economical way to protect water systems against scale and corrosion
- Protects water systems in hotels, public buildings, private households and industry against scale formation and corrosion.
- Prevents ‘brown’ water and clogged pipes
- Saves expensive repairs or even replacement of water pipes, boilers, heaters, cooling systems etc.
- Helps to save energy
- Extends the life of your water installation.
SILIPHOS dispensers can be installed in almost every water system. They require no electric installation and hardly any maintenance. They only have to be refilled with spheres every 3 – 6 months. Refilling is very easy and a complete change of SILIPHOS is recommended every 12 months.
