ChemTreat Takes Stage at CTI 2017
ChemTreat will have a number of presentations at the upcoming Cooling Technology Institute Annual Conference. We are also looking forward to participating as a sponsor and exhibitor at the event.
ChemTreat Presentations to Look Out For
Can Rusted Surfaces be Effectively Passivated to Reduce Further Corrosion by Prasad Kalakodimi, Ph.D.
Monday February 6; 8:30am
The ability to protect rusted surfaces is of critical importance because a corrosion inhibitor rarely encounters a truly clean metal surface, except perhaps immediately after a chemical cleaning. In the study presented in this paper, advanced electrochemical methods including electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), cyclic polarization (CP), and open circuit potential (OCP) were used to evaluate the effectiveness of corrosion inhibitors in passivating rusted surfaces. The relative performance of several traditional and advanced corrosion inhibitors is provided together with a mechanistic discussion.
A Fresh Perspective on Controlling Yellow Metal Corrosion by Jon Cohen
Tuesday February 7; 8:30am
Current methodologies for using azoles to control yellow metal corrosion have existed for years with little advancement. Although these strategies have met corrosion rate requirements for a majority of industrial systems, there are still many failures due to corrosion of yellow metals. This paper will highlight some mechanisms of yellow metal corrosion, new data on the effects of halogens on azoles and a new control strategy.
How to Choose a Biocide Program for a Recirculating Cooling System by Christopher Baron
Tuesday February 7; 9:30am
Preventing microbial growth in recirculating cooling systems is crucial to maintain productivity at your site and extend the life of your capital assets. Choosing the correct biocide program for your program for your particular system requires assessing factors other than free chlorine levels and planktonic microbe counts. This paper will describe various microbial growth control technologies, how to choose among them, and how to monitor the performance and value of the program chosen.
