Metallic Phosphates in Cooling Water Treatments

Mixtures of metallic phosphates which are produced as by‐products of the phosphate industry have been found to have superior corrosion‐inhibiting properties in water systems while at the same time preventing scale deposition in those sections where the water has a tendency to form scales. Thus, chemical control of acidity in water systems becomes much less critical. The new technique is considered important and it is thought that metallic phosphates may in the future be applied to fields other than water treatment. The following article is based on the results of work carried out in the laboratories of the Deady Chemical Co., Kansas City, U.S.A.
