Scale accumulation can decrease flow rates, leading to decreased operating efficiency. Scale inhibitors and corrosion prevention are essential for both your environment and your operation. We also offer water treatment solutions where extremely low levels of pollution are required and maximum protection for equipment.
- Excellent scale inhibitor and corrosion inhibitor
- Ideal Cooling or Heating Water Systems
- Inhibits ferrous & non-ferrous metal corrosion
- Provides excellent deposit control
- Outstanding results in varying water hardness
Corrosion & Scale Inhibitors are chemicals that can delay or stop the formation of scale. They can be added in very small quantities to water, which would normally cause scale deposits. It is similar to preventing scale from washing machines. Other chemicals can also be used.
Inhibition can be achieved either by adding substances, which react with potential scale-forming compounds or by suppressing crystal growth. This is why these chemicals are so attractive. A very low amount (several parts per million) can prevent scale from being formed for prolonged periods of either equipment or surface treatment. Scale inhibitors have a complex mechanism that is not well understood.
Types Scale Inhibitors
- Inorganic polyphosphates
- Organic phosphates esters
- Organic phosphonates
- Organic polymers
Scale-Inhibitor Selection Criteria
Inhibitors can’t be mixed with other chemicals and must not be affected. The following are the key factors for selecting scale inhibitor candidates that will be tested in the performance tests:
- Types of scale: The scale composition determines the best scale inhibitor chemistry.
- Pricing: Sometimes cheaper products turn out to be more cost-effective, while other times the more costly products do.
- Temperature: Higher temperatures and a longer life span limit the types of chemistry that can be used.
- pH: The majority of scale inhibitors will not work in low-pH conditions.
- Chemistry compatibility: Scale inhibitors must be compatible, Corrosion Inhibitors and BIOCIDES.
There are many benefits to corrosion inhibitors.
- Liquids used to make vehicles can come into contact with parts made of metal. The use of these chemicals should be avoided as corrosion can occur.
- Corrosion inhabitants have been added for vehicles to prevent metal parts from rusting when they come in contact.
- Water systems are susceptible to rust and need to be protected.
- Pipes need corrosion inhibitors as rust can contaminate liquids passing through them.
- Tanks, which are often used to store fuel or water, can get rusty. It should be treated before using corrosion inhibitors.
- Corrosion inhibitors slow down the corrosion rate of pipelines. This results in improved pipeline integrity over time.
- The automotive industry is not the only one that benefits from corrosion inhibitors. Other industries include open gardens, bike chains, and loosen rusted scissors.
- Another sector that is a beneficiary of corrosion inhibitors is the construction industry. Because many metals are vulnerable to weather, they can be easily damaged.
- Iron-like gates and railings are very susceptible to rust so corrosion inhibitors have been developed.
- A corrosion inhibitor can extend the equipment’s lifespan by up to 25%
- Reduces the cost to repair corrosive damage
- Service interruptions, malfunctions, and other problems can all be avoided by ensuring that the equipment is covered.
- Companies using corrosion inhibitor equipment can avoid potential legal and environmental liabilities.
