Scale and Corrosion Control

AQUAGUARD 560 is an all in one concentrated scale inhibitor, dispersant and corrosion inhibitor. It is specially formulated for air wash humidification systems which can be notoriously difficult to properly maintain. Fresh make-up water contains hardness salts, dissolved oxygen and dissolved solids. If these contaminants, as well as air-borne debris, are not controlled, corrosion, scaling, and fouling will occur. To mitigate these effects, AQUAGUARD 560 should be used.

This product has several advantages over commonly used liquid products in that it features controlled-release technology which eliminates much of the operator time required for system maintenance.

AQUAGUARD 560 is sold as a coated tablet in porous bags for controlled release.


  • Increases efficiency by controlling mineral scale accumulations and corrosion
  • Reduces water consumption by decreasing blow-down requirements
  • Free of chromates and heavy metals for environmental acceptability
  • Minimizes maintenance costs
  • Easy to use and safe to handle due to controlled release


AQUAGUARD 560 can be used for scale and corrosion control in air-washers, cooling towers, HVAC, dehumidification, AC pre-cooling and RO systems. It can also be used in other systems that require scale and corrosion control and utilize a water reservoir with flowing water where the bags can be placed and the product allowed to dissolve.
