Carboxyline CMI is an alternative for traditional fossil and phosphorus based chemicals. It has calcium tolerance, high water solubility and low viscosity. CMI performs well as a threshold scale inhibitor for various types of scaling due to its three main functionalities: complexing of hard water ions, crystal growth inhibition and dispersancy. The presence of CMI has a clear effect on the amount, size and morphology of the scale crystals being formed. CMI is a chemical derivative produced by carboxy-methylation of inulin. Inulin is a plant reserve poly-saccharide extracted from chicory roots and is a renewable raw material.
