Introducing a new breed of yellow metal corrosion inhibitor that will revolutionize the way cooling towers are treated. This new inhibitor forms a protective film on the metal surface hat is unequaled in its resistance to breakdown. The film is so durable that it is capable of maintaining corrosion protection for weeks without the presence of residual inhibitor in solution (a feat that azoles are incapable of achieving). This paper will present detailed studies that compare the new inhibitor to azoles, demonstrating how the advantages of the new inhibitor will provide cost, environmental, and application benefits to the user.
