Deposition of Scale consists of varying composition of scales and the fact is that the scales never consist of a single component and therefore it is not to be expected that one chemical agent would give complete removal of scales in the evaporators.

Therefore MAKARA through inhouse R&D have developed a powerful Alkine Powder descalant consisting of Imported Versene, Actuators, Cleansing agents with scrubbing bubbles and alkalis to remove the scales completely in sugar mill evaporator tubes.

This powder descalant has been specially developed by MAKARA for the sugar mills situated in remote and long distant areas and for export.

Five percent (5%) of MIRACLEAN 8000 PD depending on the scales formed with balance of water removes al scales viz Calcium sulphates, Phosphates, Carbonates, Oxalates and Silica completely enabling the evaporators to maintain proper heat transfer co-efficient.

Appearance Clear colourless to White flakes
pH 10 to 14 (solution 10%)
Specific gravity 1.0 to 1.1 (solution)
Dosage 5% in Tube Volume


Three Percent (3%) to 5% percentage of MIRACLEAN 8000 PD with balance of water is to be filled in the tubes upto top tube plate including saucer and the solution should be boiled under reduced vacuum so as to maintain the temperature of the last body above 110° centigrade for 6 to 8 hours. As the main ingredient, the versenes needs a minimum temperature of 110 degree centigrade and boiling should be done for minimum of 6 – 8 hours, sugar mills are advised to arrange for live steam connection from 6 Kgs. steam connection so that all the bodies can maintain the temperature above 110° centigrade for complete removal of scales.

Usage of MIRACLEAN 8000PD would soften the scales in the tubes and the scales can be easily removed by using one round of cutters initially in the last two bodies and one round of brushes in the other bodies. The Sugar mills can discard the usage of cutters in the long run. There will be considerable reduction in cleaning time, which has been provided in many sugar mills in our country and abroad. The boiling of chemical and brushing of the tubes can be completed within 16-18 hours and also the complete scales can be removed from the tubes.

Sugar Mills are advised to adopt only level boiling so that scale removal will be in full and not to adhere to the practice of spray, drip etc, which would give lesser removal of scales.

Sugar Mill evaporators can have proper heat transfer co-efficient when MIRACLEAN 8000 is used and hence we consider the usage of our MIRACLEAN 8000 is very imperative. Evaporation station is considered to be the heart of sugar mills and its efficiency tells upon the efficient sugar production and hence sugar mills are advised to use MIRACLEAN series of chemicals for better production management.


The scales can be easily removed in the semikrester also with our MIRACLEAN 8000 AND MIRACLEAN 8000S by arranging two circulations. Our MIRACLEAN 8000 would soften the scales and make it slurry and MIRACLEAN 8000S would scrub the scales out of the equipment.


For removing scales in inaccessible areas like nonvertical and other crystallizers, the MIRACLEAN 8000 circulation to flush out the scales. The entire cleaning and removal operation can be completed within 10 hours, but live steam should be available to heat the solutions 100° centigrade.
