SCALE AND CORROSION CONTROL IN ENGINE COOLING SYSTEMS

Discusses how scale and corrosion may be controlled in diesel engine cooling systems. The type of water used for cooling should be such as not to form deposits on heating and should include a suitable water treatment to prevent corrosion; distillate from fresh water generators, or some similar type of water should be used. Three major categories of corrosion inhibitors are discussed, and these are nitrate-borate, chromate and soluble oil. The advantages and disadvantages of each are given. Zinc, its chemistry, how it affects the cooling system, and how it may be removed from the piping, is also discussed in the article.
