Sodium Gluconate Uses in Water Treatment

Sodium gluconate finds several applications in water treatment processes. It acts as a chelating agent, effectively binding and sequestering metal ions such as calcium, magnesium, and iron, preventing their undesirable effects like scaling and precipitation. Sodium gluconate helps to maintain the efficiency of water treatment systems by inhibiting the formation of scale and reducing the risk of corrosion in pipes and equipment. It is commonly used in cooling water systems, boilers, and reverse osmosis membranes. Additionally, sodium gluconate serves as a water conditioner, aiding in the removal of unwanted impurities and promoting the effectiveness of other water treatment chemicals. Its compatibility with other substances and biodegradable nature make it a preferred choice in environmentally conscious water treatment applications.
