2-Phosphonobutane - 1,2,4 - tricarboxylic acid
PBTC controls scale where halogen-based biocides or hypochlorite bleach are
Controls calcium scale formation in high stressed alkaline conditions. Its antiscal
propertyunder high temperature is far better than that of organophosphines. It can
improve zinc salt solubility, has good chlorine oxidation tolerance and good
PBTC has been widely used in industry as a sequestering agent and calcium
carbonate scale inhibitor for applications in industrial water treatment and industrial cleaning. It is usually used together with zinc salt, copolymer, organophosphine, imidazole and other Water Treatment Chemicals. When used alone
the dosage of 5-15mg/L is preferred.
