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.
