Corrosion is an electrochemical process by which a metal returns to its natural oxide state. It causes loss of metal thickness or even penetration of tube walls which can cause leakage of process fluids into the cooling water or vice versa. Corrosion is generally a greater concern with the more common, lower cost materials like mild steel.

In cooling systems, corrosion causes two basic problems. The first and most obvious is the failure of equipment with the resultant cost of replacement and plant downtime. The second is decreased plant efficiency due to loss of heat transfer-the result of heat exchanger fouling caused by the accumulation of corrosion products.

Such problems can be overcome by the use of suitable corrosion inhibitors, AquaNile Chemical Industries offers single, double or multiple drum approaches for the best corrosion control.
