Product Application

Cooltreat  is a highly effective corrosion inhibitor for all common metals in cooling water systems. Testing has shown no detrimental effects on non metallic substances such as seals, glands, packing, hoses, gaskets etc., normally used in these systems. Where most traditional inhibitors react with the metal surface and form oxides that prevent further corrosion, Cooltreat  applies a thin and durable layer of protective molecules to the metal surfaces. This technology prevents the continuous build-up of insulating layers on heat transfer surfaces. For new builds, Rxsol  Ships Service recommends cleaning of the water system before commencing service. The system will always contain small amounts of oil and iron oxides, and this can be removed in one operation. If the system is corroded or is more heavily contaminated, degreasing scale is recommended. For systems previously treated with other products, Rxsol  Ships Service recommend to drain and flush the system before refilling with distilled water and Cooltreat . The system should be clean and free from scale and corrosion products when starting the treatment. The use of antifreeze is sometimes required if the vessel is to be laid up in cold areas, Cooltreat can be used in conjunction with glycols for frost protection. If used in conjunction with glycols, It is recommended to increase the product concentration to 8%.*
