What Causes Corrosion And How Can We Help?

Have you ever wondered what is causing the corrosion of your water pipes? You might be surprised to realize that many different elements cause corrosion, which demands different types of treatment to combat. Corroding of water pipes is an eventuality that must be faced, but understanding the causes of the process and the techniques used to reduce the rate of corrosion will result in an efficiently functioning water system that produces the highest quality of water.

Some of the well-known causes of corrosion stem from alkalinity (a solution used to dissolve acid) and an imbalance in the hardness of the water. Oxidizing agents can also speed up corrosion by forming certain acids and metal oxides that wear down the durability of water pipes.

Other factors include atmospheric impressions, extreme temperatures of the water, and bacteria that finds its way into the pipes.

Our inventory of raw materials includes a vast array of high performance threshold inhibitors, dispersants, and corrosion inhibitors which can be formulated to control almost any expected deposit or corrosion problem.
