Hydroxyethylamino-Di(Methylene Phosphonic Acid)


HEMPA CAS No.  5995-42-6                                Molecular weight: 249

Structural Formula:



HEMPA is an organophophoric acid, which exhibits excellent chelation, scale inhibition and corrosion inhibition. It is mainly used in oilfield, detergent / soap and metal treatment etc, especially useful in the water sytems with high level of dissolved iron and calcium. It is also compatible with methanol/water solution. When built together with other water treatment chemicals, it shows good synergistic effects.
