Citric Acid based Descalant
Citric Acid is a natural preservative which is commonly used as an acidifier, a chelating agent and a descaler. The dominant use of citric acid is as a preservative and flavoring agent in food and beverages, especially soft drinks. The buffering properties of citrates are used for the controlling of pH in household cleaners and pharmaceuticals. Citric acid serves as an excellent chelating agent, binding metals. It is used for the removal of lime scale from boilers and evaporators. It can also be used for softening of water, which makes it useful in soaps and laundry detergents. By chelating the metals in hard water, it lets these cleaners produce foam and work better without need for water softening.
