Heavy Duty Industrial Rust Remover STSR

Industrial rust remover products are crucial for addressing the industrial rust removal issues in sectors such as oil & gas, petrochemical, transportation, and many other industries where rust buildup can be a common issue in heavy-duty industrial equipment. Scale remover STSR is the ultimate industrial-grade rust remover for eliminating rust and scale on surfaces such as stainless steel and iron.

Industrial Rust Remover STSR is a chemical rust remover product that is also an alternative for strong acids such as Hydrochloric acid (also known as muriatic acid) and sulfuric acid. These acids can be highly corrosive and pose serious health and safety risks. 

Our buffered acid is cost-effective, non-hazardous, non-corrosive to steel and unbroken skin, and poses minimal risk to operating personnel and equipment involved.

STSR as an Industrial Rust Remover

To tackle all the pains and difficulties faced by the above traditional methods.

STSR contains the ability of strong acids The rust eliminator is a buffered acid because of how it is manufactured. The Industrial Rust Remover STSR has the removal strengths of other hazardous acids but maintains many safety benefits.

Industrial rust removal methods

Chemicals such as phosphoric acid or natural options such as white vinegar can be utilized for rust removal. But, to address industrial requirements, there is a dire need for an industrial rust remover. This is where Scale Remover STSR comes in and acts as the perfect chemical rust remover.

Like rust formation, industrial rust remover acids use chemical processes for rust removal. Mechanical methods such as scrubbing or sanding/sandblasting are often not meant to eliminate rust, but they are labor-intensive, time-consuming.

1) Acids

  •  Mild-Heavy rust dissolvers
  •  Hazardous to work with

2) Shot Blasting

  • Tiny metals objects shot at metal
  • Highly effective for all equipment
  • Difficult to come across shot blasting equipment

3) Aqua (water) based solution - 

  • The safest option to work as compared to acids. 
  • Leaves underlying metal unaffected.

4) Electrolysis Reaction - 

  • Applies an electric current to the reaction. This can be dangerous and produce toxic chemicals and fumes.

5) Mechanical - 

  • Labor intensive 
  • Can lead to surface unevenness

6) Natural methods (Soaking in vinegar, scraping off stains)

  • Less effective
  • Labor intensive
  • Can damage underlying metal

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Rust and Removal

How does rust form?

Rust can come in many colors such as yellow, brown, orange, and even green. The most common one - by far - is the reddish-brown rust formed on surfaces such as stainless steel and other metals. 

When iron or its alloys are exposed to moist air, rust forms. To form rust, oxygen and water in the air react with the metal. Generally speaking, rust is formed by the reaction of iron or steel, oxygen, and water acting as a catalyst.

How fast does rust spread?

The answer is ‘It depends’. Also, the speed of rust formation depends on the environment it is in. Several times we often ask ourselves. What liquid makes metal rust the fastest? (140)

The answer is saltwater! If the material is present in or near saltwater, rust formation can accelerate due to the salt solution acting as a catalyst.

Another example can be - In this case, an industry located on the coastal area has a higher susceptibility rate of getting rust on equipment due to higher salt content in the atmosphere, and therefore, they need to regularly check on rust removal from equipment.

How to remove rust from large metal objects?

Rust removal from large metal objects can be a challenging issue faced by any industry, may it be transportation, food & beverage, or the manufacturing industry. Scale remover STSR is the ideal solution for large-scale rust removal. Since it addresses the rust build-up on metals and its alloys. Our product can be applied through

1.     Foaming

2.     Low - pressure sprays

3.     Rust remover dip or soaks

Use our industrial descaling chemical in its liquid state or have the product customized to your needs.  Examples of customization include creating a foaming solution or adding thickener for use on vertical surfaces.

STSR is a non-hazardous, real working solution that can work at various concentrations, it will dissolve rust and scale inefficiencies without taking apart any equipment and leave your operation 100% rust-free. Proven to work at a faster pace than competitors to save much desired time. 

Can STSR also be used as a stainless steel rust remover?

Yes! Industrial rust remover STSR can also be utilized to eliminate rust from steel or stainless steel. The word stainless is included due to its ability to withstand high levels of corrosion of rust. However, it does not mean it’s entirely rust-proof. Industrial equipment can be less tolerant to rust in environments that have high salinity or humidity, this can lead to structural damage on equipment. This enhances the need for a rust removal solution in industries and for commercial purposes.

Our product has proved to be effective in rust and scale removal from stainless steel and is a better replacement for strong and less effective acids such as Phosphoric and acetic acid. STSR is a safe bet for stainless steel appliances and equipment since it protects the underlying steel and is safe to unbroken skin, eco-friendly, and non-corrosive to steel. Moreover, our product is also safe for various other materials such as glass and plastic allowing the products to be used in many applications and industries. If you have any further questions, please request an SDS or contact us directly.


Rust formation can be a drawback to the functionality of any industrial equipment or deteriorate the quality of the underlying metal. To address these industrial issues and to ensure a rust-free environment, Industrial Rust Remover STSR can tackle large-scale rust removal from metals and stainless steel, while ensuring zero damage to the underlying metal, being non-corrosive to steel and unbroken skin.
