- High iron levels
- High biocide levels and High bulk water temperatures
Corrosion in cooling towers can be a serious operational issue, leading to decreased efficiency and equipment failures when the corrosion is uncontrolled or the treatment, ineffective. Most industrial operations use traditional orthophosphate, polyphosphates, or other phosphorous-containing water treatment programs to control corrosion in towers. Amid concerns of the potential impact of phosphorous on surface water and the environment, emerging regulatory guidelines reduce your options on how you can protect your cooling water system by restricting the amount of phosphorous in your chemical treatment programs.
In a proactive response, we developed the LIFESHIELD™ non-phosphorous corrosion inhibition program to address these operational challenges.
Meet stringent environmental regulations and manage the problems of highly corrosive water systems
Traditional phosphate-based corrosion programs require precise control to create a balance with other cooling system factors like temperature and pH levels to decrease the risk of fouling and corrosion. We have developed a more efficient solution: LIFESHIELD non-phosphorous corrosion inhibition program offers operators increased flexibility for a variety of stressed cooling water conditions.
Our LIFESHIELD system contains zero phosphorous to meet health, safety and environmental (HSE) and legal regulations and reduce fouling of downstream equipment. These systems also reduce the threat of corrosion-influenced equipment failure, improve reliability, and enable water re-use to reduce energy consumption and costs.
Each LIFESHIELD corrosion inhibition program includes ongoing monitoring to track trends and analyze your performance. The program can be combined with our VIVID™ smart controller for automated online monitoring of industrial water treatments, which can help improve your water system efficiencies and costs.
