Closed circuit inhibitors are often referred to as corrosion inhibitors, but their function is considerably more complex than that. Our closed circuit inhibitors are indeed specifically formulated to inhibit corrosion, but equally important is their ability to prevent the build-up of scale and to stop the deposition of suspended solids (fouling).
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.
