Scale & Corrosion Inhibitor for Galvanised Steel Cooling Towers - Baton

Scale & Corrosion Inhibitor for Galvanised Steel Cooling Towers - Baton

Accepta 6017 is a high performance, highly concentrated solid chemical cooling water treatment scientifically formulated to treat and protect galvanised steel cooling towers from white rust conditions.

Accepta 6017 is suitable for use in both new installations and systems that must be routinely passivated. It uses the very latest anti-scaling and corrosion inhibition technologies.

Accepta 6017 is designed to treat open cooling tower water systems during system start-up, and helps to achieve a suitable inhibitor concentration during this stage.

Accepta 6017 is also a good “catch up” solution for cooling systems that have lost water or where the inhibitor feed has been absent for some time. It is also good for use in small cooling systems where metering of the inhibitor into the system is not practical.

Accepta 6017 corrosion inhibitors combine with conventional chemistry to provide system protection via passivation.

Accepta 6017 contains ortho phosphate, polymer dispersant and triazole.

Accepta 6017 comprises a small (0.36kg) solid chemical baton wrapped in a water soluble bag.

Accepta 6017 is packaged in cases containing 30 x 0.36kg water-soluble bags, each bag being enclosed in a sealed cardboard tube.

Each case weighs 10.9kg.

Application & Dosage Information

At a dosage rate of 250 ppm the parameters identified in the table below should be met during the passivation period.

Operators should also refer to the tower manufacturers guidelines for additional detail.

Water Quality Range Dosage Test Range
pH Calcium Alkalinity Chemical level in recirculating water Ortho PO4
6.5 - 8.0 100 - 300ppm 100 - 300ppm 250 ppm 100 ppm

Each baton of Accepta 6017 yields 250 ppm of product when added to 1.89m3 of system volume/water.

Testing & Control

Ortho phosphate test kits suitable for monitoring and controlling the use of Accepta 6017 are available from Accepta.


When dosed into a cooling system, operators should attempt to find a high flow area in the sump of the cooling tower or inside an accessible make-up tank. Please note that product dissolution rates will vary depending upon water composition, temperature and flow rate.

It is always advisable to carry out a 'Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health' (COSHH) assessment before use.
