Sodium Molybdate Dihydrate Crystals

What is Sodium Molybdate Dihydrate?
Sodium Molybdate is an excellent metal corrosion protection chemical. ChemWorld offers a selection of corrosion inhibitors specially developed to treat closed recirculating water systems. This product is sold in 50 pound containers. Due to the recent price increases with molybdate, more cost effective corrosion inhibitors are now used. To verify the residual in the water system, use a molybdate test kit.

ChemWorld offers a selection of corrosion inhibitors specially developed to treat closed recirculating water systems. Corrosion inhibitors are chemicals that react with a metallic surface or the environment to which it is exposed, primarily for protection. It works by adsorbing itself onto the surface and forming a film. Inhibitors are usually prepared in a solution or dispersion. Inhibitors delay corrosion by:
  • Reduction of ion movement to the metallic surface
  • Increase of anodic or cathodic polarization behavior
  • Increasing the electric resistance of the metallic surface
Corrosion inhibitors are developed to help reduce the detrimental effects of corrosion on plants and their equipment. Regular application improves boiler efficiency and minimizing downtime, saving operational costs in the long run. These products are suitable for a variety of industrial, commercial, and process applications. Boiler inhibitor works in several ways.

One of which is through 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. For 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. Molybdate corrosion inhibitor is developed for closed cooling water systems and has replaced older kinds of inhibitors like chromate. It is formulated with ingredients that protect steel, copper, and copper alloys. It cleans and protects the cooling system by coating the surface with a protective film. Product is suitable for power plants, blast furnaces, casting mills, and chemical plants

Sodium Molybdate corrosion inhibitor can now be purchased on ChemWorld. The product is available in different quantities and can be delivered for free. Order now! Product Feed and Control: Molybdate corrosion inhibitor is fed neatly from the shipping container. The product can be mixed with water in any ratio. Feeders, piping, and valves should be made of steel, polyethylene, or PVC. Treatment control ranges vary depending on system operating conditions. It should be used with soft water to avoid calcium phosphate deposition.

Sodium Molybdate corrosion inhibitor is controlled with 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 - 40C (50-100F) and keep product away from direct sunlight. Do not reuse empty containers but dispose of them in compliance with existing federal laws.
