ABSTRACT
The need to provide an optimum level of safety and the possibility of rehabilitation
technical systems, the components is always present in all sectors. The problem becomes particularly acutely in the nuclear industry, energy, mining, chemical, petrochemical, or generally in areas with stringent regimes of operation of technical systems where inspection and maintenance activities are treated as priority elements of managerial work. Heat exchangers used in particular the areas of activity in energy production work in corrosive environment. The thermal agent used is usually water, which results in a corrosion process of working installations. In this paper will be analyzed remedies to combat corrosion process of these installations by a proper choice of materials they are made and performing thermochemical treatments in regards the extension of lifetime between two repairs.

Keywords: heat exchangers, thermal agent, thermochemical treatments;
