“What’s the difference between using acid and using RYDLYME?”

When the time comes to descale your equipment, diligently think about what options you have. When cleanings utilize acid or harsher chemicals to descale, they risk results shown to the right. That’s when the realization comes into play – I wish I had used RYDLYME!

RYDLYME has been used for over 80 years and has earned the reputation of being the World’s Leading Biodegradable Descaler by countless customers and OEMs. RYDLYME has often been imitated, but never duplicated. While the proverbial phrase “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” holds true in this case, it is misleading. It is putting the health and safety of customers, as well as equipment, at risk. The unique and complex formulation and blending process of RYDLYME gives it the ideal balance of effectiveness and safety. NO other formulation can duplicate that, and stating otherwise is grossly deceptive.

Ask yourself, would you rather use a harsh chemical that could destroy your equipment (shown on the right) or would you rather use the World’s Leading Biodegradable Descaler, RYDLYME?

A truly safe & biodegradable descaler

RYDLYME descaler is the ONLY product of its kind that is truly non-toxic and biodegradable! Unlike other chemical descalers and traditional harsh acids, RYDLYME can be safely handled by personnel 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 friendly chemical. While other chemical descalers claim to be biodegradable, it does not equate to overall safety. In fact, many of them are classified as hazardous chemicals and have special handling requirements.

Additionally, RYDLYME quickly dissolves a wide array of mineral deposits and is safe on all materials associated with water-operated equipment and systems, including copper, brass, rubber and even stainless steel!
