Corrosion Inhibitors – What Are They & How Do They Work? 

Why are corrosion inhibitors important for water processing systems like HVACs, boilers, water cooling systems, and more? Corrosion and scale build-up can cause damage to major systems that use water for processing, so it is important to use chemical inhibitors to remove and prevent the build-up of these damaging elements.

What is corrosion?Corrosion occurs when metals break down into their chemical stable compounds, like metal oxides, metal sulfides, or metal hydroxides. The scientific definition of corrosion can be shortened by simply explaining it as rusting. And this can be prevented by not letting oxidation occur.

How Can Corrosion Inhibitors Help? 

Chemicals that are used as corrosion inhibitors are also referred to as oxygen scavengers and they work to remove existing corrosion and scales while also removing excess oxygen from closed loop water systems to prevent oxidation and future corrosion from occurring.
