The product is circulated through the equipment to be descaled, reacting immediately, taking deposits into solution, with the evolution of carbon dioxide
allowing visual monitoring of the descaling process.
Above about 70% RH, bubble formation caused by increased evolution of carbon dioxide
may result in reduction of gloss or even noticeable blisters, bubbles and pops.
In comparison, lanthanum carbonate tetra hydrate, which has already been submitted for approval to the United States FDA for phosphate control, shows immediate evolution of carbon dioxide
when exposed to the same stomach acid conditions.
