Current passing along a metal pipe creates a coaxial magnetic field, or “skin effect,” interfering with the electro-chemical reaction necessary for corrosion to take place. Introducing Hydropath Technology to a water system inhibits internal pipe corrosion by up to 65%.
Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) or bacterially Induced Corrosion (BIC) occurs when particular types of bacteria attack a pipe and cause pinholes. The most common type of MIC is sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB). HydroFLOW aids the in reduction of MIC by up to 95%.
