Identification

MAX HT® prevents the formation of impurities and contaminants in heaters resulting in optimized energy consumption and reduced emission.

MAX HT® is a scale inhibitor that eliminates sodalite scale from heat exchangers and contributes to the sustainability of the alumina industry. It reduces both energy and fresh water consumption, in addition to solving a legacy production challenge within the alumina industry. MAX HT® Technology prevents the formation of solid particles, it results in higher heat transfer rates reducing the need for energy to maintain high temperatures and enabling the generation of fresh condensate which is recycled in process, decreasing the injection of fresh water by 20%.
