Normally injected into the system that is previously filled with standard industrial grade water and circulated continuously under required pressure for about 1-2 hours with hourly monitoring of the Nitrite concention. A higher temperature help to accelerate the passivating process and therefore reduce operation time. An appropriate temperature suitable to the system and available resources is choosen between 35 950C

 

Dosage

Initial : 1 : 400 is suitable in most cases of passivation processes operating at optimum temperature between 50 700C. Depending on the quality of water used some adjustment in the amount may be required to maintain the pH of the solution. An increase in concentration of LC 252 is necessary in badly soiled systems. Additional amount of LC 252 may be required to be added during the circulation for the passivation process in order to maintain the required control parameters while monitoring.

LC 253

Phosphating Agents

 

LC 253 is a highly alkaline concentrated product designed for neutralizing the metal surfaces that is acceptable to corrosion. LC 253 is also a highly alkaline formulation of phosphate, polymeric dispersants and corrosion inhibitors. It is designed to control corrosion and neutralize any acidic left over from acid cleaning processes. It contains no chromate or heavy metals.

 

Application

Can be added directly into the raw water to give a 1% to 5% solution, which then may be used for neutralization & protection. For offline storing purposes a 0.5% solution may be quite effective. The surface to be neutralized or get protection must receive a minimum of 5-10 minute contact time.

 

Dosage

Dosage is calculated depending on the circulating or storing volume and the time of contact. A diluted solution of 0.5% up to 5% is recommended. Use concentrated solution for less contact time & higher initial conditions, where as a 0.5% solution may be used for storing.
