Star brite introduces Marine Descaling Fluid—a powerful, easy way to descale raw water-cooled systems that saves time, energy, and a lot of headache. Star brite Marine Descaling Fluid can be recirculated through any system where descaling is needed, allowing for a faster and cost-effective return-to-service for equipment.

When servicing a boat, unseen issues are often the worst or most costly—both for the boat owner and for the service yard. For years, service yards and dealerships have trusted Star Tron® Enzyme Fuel Treatment to keep fuel-related engine issues and carbon-based deposits at bay. But the fuel system is only one part of a complex equation that keeps a boat running at its peak, and unfortunately not the only system prone to buildups.

Calcium deposits are a major issue for marine raw water-cooled systems. As water runs through a system, calcium deposits begin to grow and build. This growth can often lead to overheating issues. You probably know that an overheating engine can impact fuel consumption. But did you know that a variance of as little as 5-10º above normal can lead to as much as 5-14% reduction in efficient engine performance? While many factors can lead to this overheating, scale buildup is one of the easiest issues to remedy, and could even be a potential income producing service.

Star brite Marine Descaling Fluid is designed to safely and quickly remove scale, calcium, corrosion, salt and buildup in all raw water-cooled systems that are easily barnacled with deposits. Marine Descaling Fluid is also the perfect choice for a back-of-house service and preventative maintenance add-on to offer customers. The product can be recirculated through any system where descaling is needed. Recirculation allows for minimal dismantling and a faster return-to-service for equipment—the whole process often taking as little as four hours.

Whether it’s the engine or the cooling system that’s acting up, what makes Star brite Marine Descaling Fluid ideal is that it reduces the need to fully dismantle the system being treated. Since buildup will only occur on the raw-water side of each system—the side exposed to the open environment—treatment only requires closing the inlet and outlet seacocks, routing the inlet and outlet hose to a collection tank and then using a circulation pump to begin the flush. Once complete, it’s a perfect time to replace any anodes and re-assemble all components and check for leaks.

It’s a procedure that can fit into any regular service routine. However, descaling an engine or AC system can be a daunting process for the average boater, which creates a great opportunity for professionals to take advantage of with easy-to-use products like Marine Descaling Fluid.
