Corrosion prevention: keeping your water systems safe

In the world of water treatment, corrosion is a major concern. If not controlled, corrosion can lead to poor energy transfer in heat exchangers, creation of favourable microbiological conditions in cooling towers, and even complete failures in steam boilers. Pipework, heat transfer surfaces and externals are all susceptible to corrosion.

Corrosion of metals in water systems: the basics

Corrosion is the deterioration of a metal as a result of a chemical reaction between it and the environment around it. Almost completely unavoidable in everyday life, the process is perhaps most commonly seen as rust on iron, on cars, boats and steel structures such as bridges.
