The Lanlang ASC Anti-scale inhibitor cartridge is designed to fit any standard 10" water filter cartridge housings. The ASC polyphosphate siliphos water filter cartridge inhibits the build-up of scale in a domestic water system and can be installed on the incoming main if required.
Limescale is caused by the presence of calcium and magnesium salts dissolved in water in the form of soluble bicarbonates. Through the effect of heat, these salts are transformed into insoluble carbonates and tend to agglomerate as crystals, forming a calcareous scale on the surface of pipes, coils, and storage tanks used for the production of hot water for domestic or industrial use. Over time, the scale obstructs pipes and forms thick cement-like encrustations in heating systems. This leads to inefficiency and to a drastic reduction in energy output, as well as to high servicing and maintenance costs.
Polyphosphate Siliphos treatment is widely used in hotels, coffee shops, and restaurants, and homes, is safe to drink, simple, effective, and economic solution for the problem of scale deposits. When dissolved in water, the polyphosphate prevents the formation of calcium carbonate encrustation by acting upon its crystallization, without affecting the hardness of the water. Over time, it will also break down existing deposits. Polyphosphates also provide effective protection against corrosion by creating a thin protective film on the surface of the pipes, coils, and water heaters.
