How inhibitors prevent corrosion and scale in closed circuit systems

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).

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.
