Welcome to our chemistry glossary!

Here you will find a diverse collection of technical terms and topics related to the fascinating world of chemistry – from general basics such as Sinner's circle, which explains the interactions of chemical cleaning factors, to detailed elaborations on the formation and dissolution of scales in the sugar industry, to the use of acids in chemical cleaning, and the importance of additives in this process. Our glossary offers you comprehensive information and exciting insights. Enjoy exploring!

Reduction and prevention of scales

The control and prevention of scales is an important aspect in many industries, as scales can significantly affect the efficiency of production processes. We'll give you an overview of the different types of scales that can vary by industry and specific conditions, and how they are created.

Use of acids in chemical cleaning

In chemical cleaning, acids play an important role in removing various types of scales and contaminants. Here is some information worth knowing about the use of acids in chemical cleaning.

Improved cleaning performance due to additives

Additives are used in chemical cleaning for the industry to improve cleaning agent performance and address specific challenges. In the following, we briefly explain the functions that additives perform and the benefits they offer. Whether improved cleaning action or emulsification and dispersion (additives help dissolve and disperse contaminants in the cleaning fluid, making them easier to release from the surface to be cleaned). We show you on the following page how exactly this works.

The cleaning circle according to Sinner

Sinner's circle, named after its discoverer Herbert Sinner, is a concept that explains the mechanism of action in cleaning. This circle includes four basic factors that play a central role in cleaning: Time, mechanics, chemistry and temperature. Each of these factors significantly influences the cleaning result and contributes to optimal results.

The products shown on our website are only a selection of our entire product range. There is no universal remedy for the rapid removal of impurities. Some can be removed well with alkaline agents, others better in the acidic range. The large variety of conceivable cleaning problems and the large number of additives, inhibitors and ready-to-use cleaning solutions offered by us make it advisable to obtain detailed advice before starting cleaning.
The same applies to inhibitors, defoamers, scale preventers, corrosion inhibitors, pickling inhibitors, etc. Depending on the plant, material, product and the type of boiler/cooling water is used, different individual challenges arise. We are well equipped for them.

Talk to us, we will be happy to help!
On request, we can analyze deposits in our laboratory and develop a cleaning strategy based on our many years of experience, taking into account the conditions on site.
