Protecsol™ corrosion inhibitors
The excellent results achieved by using a superior water treatment program during system operation can be negated completely by poor preventative treatment and storage procedures while the system is idle or offline.
Protecsol corrosion inhibitors comprise a family of patented products that effectively control corrosion during idle or shutdown times in a variety of water-based systems, including condensers, cooling towers,
steam boilers and other hydronic heating, cooling and process systems.
When used as part of a comprehensive shutdown and storage procedure, Protecsol corrosion inhibitors protect the entire system, including the water and air phases as well as at the water and air interface, from corrosion. This unique quality ensures complete protection of flooded, drained or partially drained idle systems.

Corrosion Monitoring and Metallurgy
Problems related to corrosion cost commercial and industrial plants billions of dollars each year. Although a variety of means exist to inhibit corrosion, it's important to identify the root cause of the corrosion.
Ashland Water Technologies’ Corrosion Monitoring and Metallurgy group provides failure analysis and assessments of steam-generating
and heat-exchanger equipment. Working closely with customers, this team provides clear identification of the problem, which leads to a more rapid and effective solution.
Key services provided by the group include failure analysis, corrosion coupon analysis and elemental and compound analysis.
Water Process Applications
Ashland Water Technologies’ Water Process Applications team is dedicated to helping customers improve the performance of their boiler, heating and cooling systems, and associated processes. The team supports customers worldwide from four technical centers that house extensive analytical capabilities and innovative process testing instrumentation. Using both laboratory bench and pilot scale equipment, the team can evaluate chemical and mechanical treatments and explore “what-if” scenarios under actual-use conditions. The hard data and insights gained during these evaluations allow Ashland to confidently recommend treatment strategies that ensure system efficiency.
