Phosphino carboxylic acid (PCA) associates characteristics of phosphonates and polyacrylates. The function is to provide a special equilibrium of limit inhibition and dispersancy. The Phosphino carboxylic acid (POCA) has good tolerance to chlorine. And it is also compatible with a lot of microbiological control agents.
The Phosphino carboxylic acid has excellent dispersion performance for calcium carbonate and calcium phosphate scale in a cool water system. The reason is that introducing a phosphonic group right into a carboxylic group. In addition, Phosphino carboxylic acid also has good scale inhibition for barium sulfate, strontium sulfate, and silica scale.
One more thing to note is that chlorine or other oxidizing biocides in the standard cannot affect phosphino carboxylic acid (PCA, POCA).
Phosphino carboxylic acid inhibits scale buildup on surfaces through at least three mechanisms. (For more details, click here.)
|Appearance||Colorless or light yellow liquid|
|Solid content, %||50 Min.|
|Total phosphor (as PO43-), %||0.5 Min.|
|Density (20℃), g/cm3||1.20~1.30|
|pH (1% water solution)||3.0~5.0|
Phosphino carboxylic acid has advantages in a wide range of water quality, chemical stability, strong chlorine tolerance, etc. Engineers use it as a scale and corrosion inhibitor in circulating cool water systems. And also found in the oilfield refill water system.
