RYDLYME Biodegradable Descaler is used to safely and efficiently dissolve tough mineral deposits such as water scale, limescale, calcium, and rust from the water side of industrial equipment!
Recommended by the U.S. Navy and countless OEMs, RYDLYME descaling chemical is NSF-registered for use in various industries and applications including beverage, pharmaceutical, bottling, and food processing plants, as well as NSF/ANSI standard 60-certified as a cleaner for potable water systems and manufactured in an ISO 9001 Certified Facility.
Why use a heat exchanger cleaning kit?
A heat exchanger cleaning kit utilizing RYDLYME biodegradable descaler and an industrial descaling system saves time, money and returns heat exchanger operating temperatures back to normal by dissolving calcium and other harsh water-formed mineral deposits.
How often is a heat exchanger cleaning kit used?
An annual RYDLYME cleaning of heat exchanger tubes or plates will dissolve and remove the calcium, magnesium, rust, and other deposits into the solution without harming the components within your chiller. Another benefit to cleaning heat exchanger tubes or plates with RYDLYME is that the non-corrosive descaler is safe for personnel who perform the cleaning and can be disposed of down an ordinary drain.
Our descaler is the universal product of choice to clean heat exchanger tubes or plates. Cleaning the heat exchanger tubes or plates on a regular basis will improve the heat exchanger’s technical and economic performance.
Our industrial descaling systems are strategically built to circulate RYDLYME throughout the heat exchanger and cooling tower to dissolve these efficiency-robbing mineral deposits. View more videos on our YouTube page.
Which heat exchanger cleaning kit should I choose?
Each heat exchanger cleaning kit can be put together to meet the expectations of the customer. We offer pneumatic pumps and pump carts as well as magnetic drive pumps and pump carts. Either system will be able to circulate RYDLYME throughout your heat exchanger dissolving the calcium and other hard water deposits.
What is included in a heat exchanger cleaning kit?

An Industrial Descaling System for circulation
Including multiple hoses
Knowledge and expertise in cleaning your heat exchanger
Q: If RYDLYME contains HCl (hydrochloric acid), how can it be safe on my skin?
A: Though the active ingredient is HCl, there is less than 10% of the acid, and it’s only one element of the overall formula. Couple this with the special way it’s blended, and you have a nice balance of safety, biodegradability, and effectiveness. That’s what makes RYDLYME so unique and why similar products fall short.
Q: Since RYDLYME contains HCl, should I be concerned about corrosion on stainless steel, such as hydrogen embrittlement?
A: There is no need to worry about hydrogen embrittlement. When used properly, RYDLYME’s unique formula will not corrode stainless steel or virtually any metal or material associated with water-based equipment.
Q: Does RYDLYME need to be used at a 100% concentration or should it be diluted?
A: RYDLYME is a powerful and concentrated descaler. Depending on the application, severity of buildup, and available time, RYDLYME can be diluted down to 25% while still maintaining its full effectiveness. To find out the proper dilution ratio for your specific application, please Contact Us.
Q: How long will it take for RYDLYME to dissolve the buildup in my equipment/system?
A: Though most cleaning applications can be completed within a few hours, actual cleaning times depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the equipment/system, the severity of buildup, and the method of circulation. Contact Us for an evaluation of your scaling problem and equipment to determine the proper amount of RYDLYME and the circulation method that should be used.
Q: How can I tell when RYDLYME is finished cleaning my system?
A: In addition to experiencing improved performance, you can perform either a calcium carbonate spot test or a pH test. These tests are explained in detail in our Testing the Effectiveness of RYDLYME information sheet.
Q: In regards to your seashell demo online and in-person, I’ve seen other products doing the same thing with dissolving the shell in their chemical. What’s so special about RYDLYME?
A: Look at those videos again. Are they dropping the shell into a container or the palm of their hand? As previously mentioned, the safety element of RYDLYME is unmatched. You can put it in your hand or equipment without harm. Also, have an added piece of mind that you, your personnel, and the facility are safe in the unfortunate event of an accident, such as a spill or equipment failure.
Q: Is RYDLYME safe in food processing or drinking water applications?
A: Yes! RYDLYME is NSF/ANSI Standard 60-certified, meaning it is approved as a safe drinking water treatment chemical. It is also NSF-registered for use in industries such as beverage, pharmaceutical, bottling, and food processing plants.
