Sentinel inhibitor controls chiller corrosion and bacteria

Sentinel, water treatment, inhibitor, chiller, bacteria

Sentinel’s X100 inhibitor for chilled-water systems features a carefully prepared blend of TripleTech (Sentinel’s trade name) anti-corrosion technology and a formula of heavy-duty, specialist corrosion inhibitors. It is free of nitrites, which can give rise to bacterial contamination of chilled-water systems. X100 offers corrosion protection for all system metals found in chillers — such as mild steel, copper and aluminium — while avoiding bio-fouling of system water.

By providing long-term protection of chiller systems, Sentinel X100 improves chiller efficiency, reduces maintenance and extends the life of a chiller and its components.

To maximise the effectiveness of ZX100, the system should be cleaned before it is dosed with inhibitor. Cleaning with a product such as Sentinel X400 will help restore flow and heat transfer, and remove debris from the system.
