Triple7 Enviroscale is a worksafe, organic, plant based limescale cleaner, which is free from strong, corrosive acids and toxic ingredients.
No harsh acids
Unlike most standard limescale removers, Triple7 Enviroscale does not contain harsh substances such as hydrochloric acid or sulphamic acid. These strong chemicals can cause serious injury to the people working with or handling the product, such as chemical burns, skin and eye irritations, breathing difficulties and permanent loss of sight.
No known or suspected carcinogens
Triple7 Enviroscale does not contain chemicals that are determined by the EPA or other regulatory authorities to be carcinogenic or suspected carcinogens: and is free of petroleum products, terpenes, glycol ethers and oxalic acid. This protects workers from the immediate and long term health risks associated with exposure to harmful chemicals and frees employers from WHS compliance and litigation concerns.
No toxic odours
Triple7 Enviroscale limescale remover contains no offensive odours and is free of hazardous air pollutants and toxic chemicals which makes it safe to use in closed environments and confined areas.
Triple7 Enviroscale is 100% organic and derived from readily renewable resources. The product contains no toxic or hazardous ingredients and will not harm water, soil or air environments.
Triple7 Enviroscale contains no ozone depleting chemicals or hazardous air pollutants and the product is readily biodegradable.
Triple7 Enviroscale has OMRI accreditation which means it is safe to use in the Production of Organic Food and Fibre. In fact the two main active ingredients in Triple7 Enviroscale are commonly used food additives; Citric Acid and Lactic Acid.
Because Triple7 Enviroscale does not contain harsh chemicals, such as hydrochloric acid, the product can be safely disposed off down sewers, with no ill effects to the environment.
For best results we recommend prior cleaning with Triple7 Heavy Duty to remove all greases and oils. While this is ideal, it is not required for excellent descaling results.

- Rinse free with water.
- Apply a 10% solution of Triple7 Enviroscale and allow to circulate for 8-16 hours.
- Maintain a pH of less than 3.0 and then follow with a thorough water rinse.
- Empty bilge, ensuring that correct safety practices are in place to deal with any toxic fumes that may be present.
- Clean with Triple7 Heavy Duty at a 10% solution, rinse with water.
- Follow with Triple7 Enviroscale maintained at a pH of less than 3.0
- Soak in a hot solution of 10% Triple7 Heavy Duty overnight to unblock.
- Rinse with water.
- Flush with a 10% solution of Triple7 Enviroscale maintained at a pH less than 3.0 to remove limescale.
Dismantled Pumps and Parts
- Place in container and cover with a 50:50 solution of Triple7 Enviroscale and water.
- Monitor pH levels and add more Triple7 Enviroscale if the pH rises above 2.5.
- If pH rises too high, discard the solution and recommence the cleaning with a new solution.
- Rinse with water and reassemble.
- This process can be completed in an agitated parts washer to speed up the cleaning process.
Assembled Submersible Pumps
- Cover fully assembled pump with sufficient Triple7 Enviroscale solution (between 10% for 50%).
- Run the pump.
- Check regularly for overheating, and ensure the pH level is maintained below 2.5.
- As the pH level rises, add more Triple7 Enviroscale.
- Change liquid occasionally if needed.
- Continue pumping until limescale is removed.
- Rinse out, or pump through with water.
- Remove pads and spray the entire pad with a 5% solution of Triple7 Heavy Duty.
- Soak or stand overnight than follow with a low pressure steam clean.
Add Triple7 Enviroscale to the bore by pouring it down the water column at the following rates;
|BORE SIZE MM||QUANTITY OF Triple7 ENVIROSCALE PER METRE OF WATER IN THE BORE|
- Circulate the product for at least six hours.
- Pump out the discharged water then reconnect the pump.
Triple7 Enviroscale is recommended for a complete limescale cleaning to thoroughly remove limescale and iron bacteria accumulation. For ongoing preventative maintenance, Triple7 Envirobore is recommended. Dosing Triple7 Envirobore at a rate of 5-20ppm on a regular basis will prevent any build up of iron bacteria or iron sludge.

I recently used some of your Triple7 Enviroscale to clean up an aluminium ute tray that was rather dirty. We let it sit for a while and then with a stiff bristle broom we scrubbed it, which made the tray relatively clean considering how dirty it was. The longer it we let it sit, the better it worked. The sides where made shiny and almost looked new!! The ute also had galvanised mug guards which were stained brown, they now look like they would have when they were fitted 10 years ago. A 3000psi water blaster had previously no effect on either the aluminium tray or galvanised mud guards. Great product. Satisfied Ute Fan
Case Studies & More
A bio-based Triple7 product allowed a large commercial laundry operation to completely remove calcium limescale build up on their filters, whilst saving on labour costs. This worksafe procedure also removed risks to maintenance staff by removing strong acids from their inventory and the removal of grinding wheels/brushes from the process.
The ability to reduce risks, improve outcomes, save costs and reduce environmental impact through the use of a GECA accredited, readily biodegradable, non-hazardous acid based chemistry was a total win for the Australian Defence Force.
Envirofluid was able to provide the Australian Defence Force with Triple7 EnviroScale - a worksafe bio-based limescale remover which was guaranteed not to erode metal surfaces or create waste water treatment issues. Pipework and heat exchanger systems could be flushed insitu without the risk of corrosion or damage to elastomeric surfaces, resulting in very large labour and cost savings for the Australian Defence Force.
A coal mine in Mackay was faced with a fire system that was blocked with a limescale build-up. Triple7 Enviroscale Plus easily broke down the scale, outperforming the previously used hydrochloric acid based product. Using the biobased product also removed the risk of corrosion or damage to elastomeric surfaces during the flush.
