Escamadores (m); Escamadoras (f)


Explanation:
This could have something to do with fish? Maybe a device to remove the scales. If so and it is a machine, use "escamadoras", if it is a profession/trade, use the masculin "escamadores". Hope this helps.

(eng. quím) produtos destartarantes, ou anti-crosta


Explanation:
Prezado Silvestre
Seria bom saber de que contexto se trata. Se se está falando de preparo de peixes, a resposta do colega anterior é adequada.
Porém se o contexto for engenharia química, "scale" ou "scaling" é o fenomeno da cristalização de sais alcalino-terrosos, presentes na àgua industrial, na parede interna de tubos ou vasos, em geral camisas de aquecimento. Isso é um problema sério na industria química - por isso se introduziram os "descalers", ácidos fracos que se mistura à agua industrial e se passa pelos vasos para dissolver esses depósitos. No Brasil, constumam chamar-se produtos anti-tártaro, ou destararizantes, ou anti-sedimentos.
