The paper discusses phenomena that cause scale and sludge formation in water-based cooling systems. Results of experimental research into cooling water treatment in an industrial cooling installation with the application of ammonium salts of strong acids have been presented. It has been found that a stoichiometric dose causes carbonate hardness removal. Adequately higher doses bring about crumbling and insignificant dissolving of the scale. Simultaneous application of an inhibitor of corrosion and incrustation prevents corrosion losses and advantageously influences water treatment.
