Amino Trimethylene Phosphonic Acid (ATMP)
The amino trimethylene phosphonic acid is an organic compound having the formula N(CH2PO3H2)3. It is a white crystalline powder having a high melting point of 215 °C and a density of 1.3 g/mL at 25 °C.
ATMP acid and its sodium salts are mainly used for anti-scaling and descaling operations in industrial circulating water systems. Applications range from water treatment to the oil field, cooling tower and scale inhibition of corrosion inhibition.
The best way to deal with scaling problems on metal equipment or pipes is to prevent their formation. ATMP chemical acts as a scale inhibitor, and its excellent chelation and thermal stability make ATMP an ideal choice for scale inhibition.
It works well at temperatures below 200 °C. It forms a soluble complex with various metal ions such as calcium, aluminum, zinc, iron, and magnesium.
ATMP scale inhibitors are available in a variety of products, liquid or solid crystalline powders.
The quality of the water used by the boiler is high. There are dissolved solids, suspended particles, and sludge in the boiler water. They cause fouling of the boiler tubes, which has a negative impact on their efficiency. This leads to higher production costs.
Using ATMP can improve the condition of the boiler water. By chelation, it keeps the hardness salts (carbonates and sulfates) in solution. Therefore, deposition does not occur.
By regularly filling this industrial water treatment product with amino trimethylene phosphonic acid, you can keep the boiler running at high efficiency.
Boilers with severe scaling can also explode. This occurs when the boiler tube is heated above the melting point of the metal. It is usually caused by an increase in the temperature at the hearth because the thick scale can impede effective heat transfer.
The cost of replacing the boiler is too high. This is why the boiler water is treated with a water treatment chemical ATMP.
Amino tris (methylene phosphonic acid) can also be used to prevent corrosion of various systems. Corrosion can occur in boilers, cooling tower water systems, and chilled water. This is usually the result of dissolved oxygen oxidation.
Corrosion reduces the thickness of the metal surface and can cause pitting. Further may lead to leakage. Rebooting or replacing the boiler tube/pipe system is expensive. With ATMP acid to prevent corrosion, your maintenance costs will remain low.
ATMP can be used with polyphosphate, nitrite and polycarboxylate compounds. It has great application value in preventing heat transfer surfaces, scales, and corrosion of pipelines and oil fields. It is especially suitable for high water hardness and brine conditions.
The purpose of preventing scale formation on the heat exchange surface is to maintain the efficiency of such a system. IRO recommends effective treatment with a continuous drug delivery mechanism. It is recommended to use 1-20 mg/L of ATMP to prevent scaling. Use a higher concentration of 20-60 mg/L of treated product to inhibit corrosion.
As a powerful chelating agent, it can be used in the printing and dyeing of textiles to chelate metal ions. It also plays an important role in removing heavy metals from the environment. It is effective to treat metal surfaces with such chemical products.
ATMP chemical can also be applied to steel plant circulating water systems, oilfield refilling systems, thermal power plant circulating cooling water systems, central air conditioning circulating water systems, etc. With the numerous industrial uses of such compounds, such water treatment solutions are used in a variety of systems.
