Why should I use Hydrosol System to passivate my W.F.I. Still?
W.F.I. still systems are susceptible to rouging. Rouging can shorten the life of your equipment and can lead to irreversible damage such as pitting and heavy accumulation of iron and rust blooms. Rouging can vary from a light-red color (Class I) to a blue or black color in the worst scenarios (Class III). Rouging is very prevalent in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry due to type of stainless steel and high water temperatures while in operation. When Hydrosol System derouges and passivates your piping we can help extend the service life of your stainless steel and provide superior protection against harmful corrosion.
WFI stills and systems should be professionally passivated annually as part of your preventative maintenance schedule. Keeping WFI stills and systems free of rouge will ensure your products or sterile systems remain contamination free and running according to manufacturers specifications.
