Using RYDLYME in Aerospace Manufacturing
Descaling in the Aerospace Manufacturing Industry with RYDLYME Descaler
If you’re looking to optimize the performance of heat exchangers, cooling towers, vacuum pumps, pumps, pipelines, boilers, or any other water-operated equipment plagued by water scale buildup, you’ve come to the right place. Discover how RYDLYME can help you maximize efficiency and minimize downtime in your operations.
The aerospace manufacturing process is a complex and intricate journey that transforms raw materials into the advanced aircraft and spacecraft that navigate our skies and beyond. Central to this process are various water-operated pieces of equipment, which play crucial roles at different stages of production.
Boilers generate steam or hot water necessary for heating elements or propulsion components, ensuring materials are processed at the correct temperatures.
Heat exchangers transfer heat efficiently between mediums, critical for maintaining optimal conditions for both materials and machinery.
Cooling towers are pivotal in dissipating heat from manufacturing processes, preserving the integrity of sophisticated equipment and materials by maintaining a controlled environment.
Condensers further aid in cooling efforts, converting steam to liquid to recycle heat efficiently, a testament to the industry’s commitment to sustainability and efficiency. These pieces of equipment are vital in the aerospace manufacturing landscape, ensuring precision, safety, and quality in the creation of aerial marvels.

Water Scale Formation
However, the challenge of water scale formation in these systems poses a significant threat to their efficiency and longevity, highlighting the need for effective solutions to maintain the seamless operation of these critical components.
Water scale, primarily composed of calcium carbonate (CaCO3), forms in water-operated systems when hard water is heated or when there’s a significant evaporation rate. This process, known as scaling, occurs because the solubility of calcium carbonate decreases with rising temperature, causing the mineral to precipitate out of the water and adhere to the surfaces of equipment.
Why Water Scale is Bad
The impact of water scale on heat transfer efficiency is profound and detrimental. Scale acts as an insulating layer on the heat transfer surfaces of equipment, significantly reducing their ability to conduct heat. In practical terms, even a thin layer of scale, as slight as 1/16 of an inch, can decrease heat transfer efficiency by up to 15%. This reduction in efficiency forces systems to work harder to achieve the desired temperatures, leading to increased energy consumption and higher operating costs.
Moreover, the presence of scale can lead to uneven heating surfaces, which may cause hot spots and increase the risk of equipment damage over time. In severe cases, the buildup can restrict water flow, leading to further inefficiencies and the potential for overheating and failure of critical components.
In aerospace manufacturing, where precision and reliability are paramount, the impact of scale on heat transfer efficiency can compromise the quality of production and lead to significant financial losses due to downtime and increased maintenance requirements. Thus, managing scale formation is crucial for maintaining the optimal performance of water-operated systems in this industry.
