Corrosive Water

Zimmatic® offers long lasting pipeline solutions for corrosive water conditions such as process water and waste water. This becomes more and more important as our water resources get squeezed and there is pressure to make use of these alternate water sources. And even in some areas that once had clean water, these water sources are also becoming more corrosive with time. What characteristics make water corrosive?

  • Acidic - ph less than 6.2
  • Alkaline - ph greater than 8.5
  • Irrigation with high levels of chlorides, sulfates and salts
  • Variable mineral content
  • Crop management chemicals
