The Rouging Effect in Pharmaceutical Water Systems: Causes and Strategies for Prevention | IVT

Rouging can, arguably, never be avoided. Rouge formation is a steady chemical process that is underway in all metallic piping systems in contact with water and all stainless steels corrode over time as minor ingredients are lost and electrochemical potentials rise. What varies is the pace of the reaction. The process is exacerbated by high temperature and particular metal compositions. This paper discusses the chemical nature of rouging and discusses some of the steps that can be followed to remove rouging and the key points with system design that can prevent (or rather slow down) rouging.
