BG 29/2021 Pre-Commission Cleaning of Pipework Systems, Amended 6th edition, written by Chris Parsloe and Martin Ronceray, published by BSRIA in partnership with the Closed Systems Control Association (CSCA) in March 2021, defines an inhibitor, or restrainer as: ‘Any compound that supresses corrosion, regardless of which electrochemical reaction it affects. The term inhibitor applies to two distinctly different chemicals, commonly in use. Acid inhibitors control the action of an acid solution used for cleaning; corrosion inhibitors control the further corrosion of metallic surfaces in water systems.’
