The Necessity of Corrosion Protection
Even pure water by itself produces corrosion via its OH- and H+ ions; as soon as water is, in addition, heated to higher temperatures, dissolved gases in water (before all carbon dioxide, oxygen) are released and lead to corrosion as well.
Corrosion protection agents fight water corrosivity in different ways:
- Film former create an adipoid (greasy) protective film on the boiler surface which prohibits or delays the corrosion process.
- On the other hand aggressive components of the feed-water, as for example oxygen, are bound and disposed by certain ingredients of our corrosion protection agents; additionally this agents increase alkalinity of the boiler water, which means to create an ideal pH environment for corrosion prevention, neutralizing coincidentally existing carbonic acid.
- Phosphates establish a protective layer on the boiler surface and remove possibly still existing residual hardness.
For the different requirements and applications you can come back to the following product lines:
- AKORRIT – treatment of boiler water
- FLUTREN – treatment of heating water
- MINIPOL – treatment of cooling water
- IMPHOS – treatment of drinking water
