Chemical inhibitors

Corrosion deposits in an older central heating system can cause substantial reductions in the effectiveness of radiators, and the whole system. The build-up of scale in heating circuits and on boiler components can cause a reduction in efficiency too. Using an effective chemical inhibitor can decrease the corrosion rate and prevent the build-up of sludge and scale, thus preventing deterioration and helping to maintain efficiency.
