What is Chemical Cleaning?

Chemical cleaning offers an effective method to cleanse a water system of unwanted contaminants. Chemical cleaning refers also to purifying or disinfecting the water in a system. 

Over time closed systems, hot water cylinders, heat exchangers and other equipment accumulate a build-up of unwanted contaminants that can cause damage to the system, or lead to an increased Legionella risk. 

Chemical cleaning is regarded as amongst the most effective cleaning methods for water systems. It is useful for both newly built systems which require cleaning to prevent residual contamination from causing damage, or for use in systems currently in operation to remove scale and other contaminants from walls and surfaces.  


Why Chemical Cleaning is Important

The maintenance of hot and cold water systems is an essential part of building management. Chemical cleaning is important for both new and operational systems for two main reasons; functionality and Legionella risk management. This is because chemical cleaning is used as a method to protect and maintain a water system, and also to prevent increased risk of Legionella and other bacteria. 

Chemical Cleaning for System Maintenance. In new systems, residual contamination and grease can cause damage to new equipment or become a contaminant in your supply. Chemical cleaning will remove this risk protecting both equipment and supply.

Chemical Cleaning for Legionella Prevention. Older water systems, or systems already in use require chemical cleaning to remove scale or other contaminants that have deposited in a system; on the inner walls or surface. These deposits can affect the flow of water or heat within a system.

How does Chemical Cleaning Prevent Increased Legionella Risk?

Chemical cleaning contributes to managing the risk of Legionella and other bacteria by preventing or removing a build-up of hard scale and soft deposits. Calcium and magnesium deposits are the most common cause of hard, dense deposits in a system. These deposits act as insulators which effect the efficiency of the systems, as well as providing the perfect environment for the proliferation of bacteria

Soft and porous deposits act as a contaminant because they are easily dissolved into the system, thus leading to water contamination and erosion of the internal walls and surfaces. Eventually this erosion also leads to further contamination. 


Types of Chemical Cleaning

There are three main types of chemical cleaning.

Acid cleaning. Acid cleaning is usually used on equipment such as hot water cylinders, closed systems, cooling towers and condensers. It refers to the use of a low concentration of acid to remove a build-up of scale from the inside walls and surfaces of this equipment. The acids used for this process also help to prevent or slow future scale and oxide build up, and also further corrosion.

Biocide cleaning. Chlorine dioxide is often used as a biocide wash. Biocide cleaning is a preventative method which helps to control the spread of Legionella and other bacteria in pipework. It is often used in new systems, although it is also suitable for systems currently in use.

Polymer cleaning. Polymer cleaning is used to break down large deposits of scale or sediment. The particles of residue can then be flushed down the drain.
