Water Scale build up in a heat exchanger

Descaling in the Mining Industry with RYDLYME Descaler

Water scaling is a pervasive issue in the mining industry, affecting various equipment critical to mining operations. Scaling occurs when minerals and other impurities in water accumulate on surfaces, forming a hard, crystalline layer. This can lead to reduced efficiency, increased energy consumption, and the need for frequent maintenance. Several key pieces of equipment in the mining industry are particularly susceptible to scaling, including heat exchangers, cooling towers, vacuum pumps, pumps, and pipelines.

Heat Exchangers

In mining operations, heat exchangers play a crucial role in maintaining optimal temperatures for various processes. However, when water with high mineral content is used in these systems, scaling can occur on the heat exchanger surfaces. This reduces heat transfer efficiency, leading to increased energy consumption and decreased overall system performance. Regular cleaning and descaling are necessary to ensure the smooth operation of heat exchangers.

Cooling Towers

Cooling towers are employed to dissipate heat generated during mining processes. Scaling in cooling towers can impede the flow of water, reducing the tower’s cooling capacity. This can result in higher temperatures in critical equipment and a decline in operational efficiency. Additionally, scaling can lead to corrosion issues in the cooling system. Routine maintenance with RYDLYME are essential to mitigate scaling in cooling towers.

Vacuum Pumps

Vacuum pumps are used in various mining applications, such as material handling and processing. Scaling in vacuum pumps can lead to decreased pump performance, increased energy consumption, and a higher risk of mechanical failure. Regular inspection and cleaning are necessary to prevent scaling issues and maintain the efficiency of vacuum pump systems.


Scaling within pumps can cause reduced flow rates and increased energy consumption. It can also lead to cavitation, which can damage pump components. Proper inspection and regular maintenance with RYDLYME are crucial to preventing scaling in pumps and ensuring their reliability in mining operations.


Scaling in pipelines can result in reduced flow rates and increased pressure drop. Over time, this can lead to decreased efficiency and increased energy costs for transporting materials within the mining facility. Regular inspection, cleaning, and descaling with RYDLYME are necessary to combat scaling in pipelines.


Boilers are commonly used in mining operations for steam generation. Scaling in boilers can reduce heat transfer efficiency, leading to increased fuel consumption. It can also result in uneven heat distribution and increased maintenance costs. Regular inspection and maintenance of the boiler are critical to maintaining the performance and reliability of boiler systems.

Water-Operated Equipment

Whether it’s pipes, valves, or any water-operated equipment, RYDLYME can be used to tackle scale buildup, ensuring smooth and efficient operation across your facility.
