Con WTP 1000

​Con WTP 1000 is a pure acrylic acid homopolymer with a low molecular weight (2000 g/mol) from our new range of deposition control agents and dispersing agents. It can be used in all aspects of modern, all-organic water treatment applications.

Con WTP 1000 is effective in inhibiting deposits and incrustations in either cooling water circuits or boiler applications, especially for calcium carbonate. Like other polyacrylic acids, Con WTP 1000 inhibits the build-up of scale at different stages: by stopping the crystal nucleation (Threshold effect), by disturbing the crystal growth which leads to smaller crystal structures and by acting as a dispersing agent for already formed scale. Due to  the lower molecular weight compared to Con WTP 1100, the dispersing efficacy is slightly lower.

Con WTP 1000 can be used as a basic ingredient for different water treatment formulations. For optimal performance, we recommend to blend Con WTP 1000 with other, more specialized polymers like Con WTP 2000Con WTP 3100 or PCA/PCAC.

Typical areas of application can be:

  • Modern cooling water treatment (power plants, chemical industry, metal working…)
  • Solutions for boiler water treatment
  • Process  water treatment
  • Deposit control in autoclaves
  • … and others
