SIP-100 Scale Inhibitor Pellets

Product Information

SELECT SIP-100 functions in three (3) ways:

  1. Scale Inhibitor
  2. Sequestration
  3. Scale Removal


The effectiveness of SELECT SIP-100 varies depending upon conditions such as water saturation, temperature, pH, super-saturation and type of scalant. The phosphonates have been found to be very effective in a wide variety of scale precipitating systems including calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, calcium phosphate, strontium sulfate, barium sulfate, ferric hydroxide, aluminum hydroxide, copper hydroxide and others.


Chelation or sequestration is a process of using a chemical agent to form a stable, water soluble complex with a metal ion. Sequestering is a good method of capturing and holding very low levels of unwanted metals in solution.

Efficiency of sequestration is dependent upon variables such as pH, choice of agents, etc. The best comparison is under actual use of field conditions.


Phosphonates remove metal oxides and scale by forming water soluble complexes with the metals. A major advantage of these products is the speed of removal of metal oxides and scale and they help reduce further corrosion of the metal surfaces by passivation; therefore, SELECT SIP-100 is useful in oil and gas systems, boilers, cooling towers, evaporators and other water systems.


SELECT SIP-100 dissolves slowly and releases the chemicals into the system. The amount used depends on the nature of each system. Dissolving time is not determined because of the variation in all of the fluid conditions. A loading amount is suggested with small additional amounts weekly or as needed.

Use SELECT SIP-100 at a ratio of 2-3 PPM of SELECT SIP-100 to the weight of water coming into the system or the total weight of water circulating in the system. Always make allowances for the extra water being added to the system. A special scoop is provided with each container of product sold.

It is often best to slug the system with product and then add regularly to maintain control of the problem.


SELECT SIP-100 is a white to off-white pellet with a specific gravity of 1.5-1.65. This pellet will therefore fall quite readily in Heavy Brine.

PACKAGING: 40 lb. poly pail
