A university in New York used a 30% calcium chloride brine solution in cooling systems at its ice arena. Unfortunately, the high chloride concentration was causing carbon steel components to corrode at a rapid rate. By adding M-605 PS to the brine solution at 0.5%, the university was able to reign in corrosion rates to an acceptable level. Due to the success of the additive, the ice arena continued using M-605 PS in its cooling system for ongoing corrosion protection.
