A corrosion inhibitor is any substance that prevents or retards the corrosion rate of metals or alloys when added to its surface or surrounding environment. Its efficiency is determined by several factors including but not limited to: fluid composition, water quantity, and flow regime. A high efficiency (90%-99%) is guaranteed if the correct inhibitor and quantity are chosen.
Corrosion inhibitor works in several ways. One chemical mechanism is passivation, or the formation of a thin film on the surface of a material. It inhibits contact of the corrosive substance, thus, preventing either oxidation or reduction. In cases of materials that are already corroding, an inhibitor can act by either adsorption, which is molecular adhesion on the surface of a metal, or scavenging, which is inactivation of the dissolved oxygen.
A corrosion inhibitor is just one of the several steam boiler chemicals necessary to maintain a water system. For closed- and open-looped woodstoves with minimal water loses, a wood boiler chemical composed of a highly concentrated liquid buffered nitrite, borate, and silicate inhibitor is suitable. Wood boiler chemical is available through ChemWorld.com as Woodstove Corrosion Inhibitor. It is designed to protect all common metals in woodstoves, which includes stainless steel, copper, and aluminum. Product is suitable for both hot and cold systems, and is compatible with glycol-based heat transfer fluids. Woodstove Corrosion Inhibitor comes in pink liquid.

* Can be used with either hard or soft water
* One gallon can treat approximately 500 gallons of make-up water
* Contains a dye indicator for ease of proper dosage detection
* Can be shot fed to the system
* Meets all D.O.T. shipping regulations
Product Feed and Control:
Woodstove Corrosion Inhibitor is shot fed directly from the shipping container. Feeders, piping, and valves should be made of steel, polyethylene, or PVC. Treatment control ranges vary depending on system operating conditions. Product is controlled by a nitrite test and should be handled by a technical specialist who will provide specific treatment control levels.
Storage and Handling:
Keep product in a tightly closed container. Store in a room with a temperature range of 10° - 40°C (50°-100°F) and keep product away from direct sunlight. Do not reuse empty container but dispose empty it in compliance with existing federal laws.
