Corrosion, Scaling & Tuberculation Onset
There are many forms of corrosion, be it a pitting attack, under deposit or tuberculation. Breaches or leaks in systems can occur without first showing signs of unsightly color in the water. Although many cities are replacing their aging piping infrastructure, the process is costly and can take time to complete. During long construction times many Sterling products can serve to preclude further damage to already impaired systems. In addition these corrosion inhibitors can serve to extend any new system’s expected lifetime, in the end saving time and money.
An increase in the required power to pressurize a system can be a sign of Scaling. In rare circumstances extreme scaling can cause pipe blockages. Although scaling issues of that magnitude are not common place, even semi-scaled pipes can increase costs to an otherwise efficient system.
