A model was developed to generate charts that fit the conditions as diverse temperatures and ionic strengths, and that estimate the diversified state of water. The chart can be used as a tool for controlling corrosive waters resulted in internal corrosion and the model producing charts composed of a number of sub modules, and each module incorporated parameters including acidity, alkalinity, pH, and calcium ion. Utilizing the chart water quality of the raw water in G water purification works was estimated to be unsaturated and Langelier index becomes -1.4 which means that the water is highly corrosive and calcium carbonate would not be precipitated. Thus, the water requires treatment as the injection of water stabilizing chemicals to promote an oversaturated (protective) condition. As a result of adding 5 mg/L of lime, it is possible to be precipitated with 5 mg/L, and the water becomes noncorrosive. In addition, when 5 mg/L of caustic soda is added as a conditioning chemical, it signifies to be precipitated with 9 mg/L, and the water also turns out to be largely noncorrosive. Both chemicals are possible to use for the water to be favorable for the formation of a protective film. Optimum injection rate for controlling corrosion can be found by repeating the procedures until the well-conditioned water criteria are satisfied.
