An industrial plant contains several environments where corrosion and fouling processes are potentially troublesome, such as cooling water systems, storage tanks, water and wastewater treatment facilities and piping (Characklis, 1986). Corrosion is one of the undesirable results of fouling, in addition to energy losses owing to increased heat transfer and frictional resistances. A recirculating cooling water system provides a good example of an industrial environment where corrosion and fouling hazard is particularly critical and needs to be kept under strict control.
