Spanish term or phrase: Prevención de instalaciones
The document is about water treatment and specifically about pH monitoring.

In a list of possible applications of pH monitoring, I have "Aguas de refrigeración" followed by "Prevención de instalaciones". I think this could be a blockage of some sort, what do you think?

Ph monitoring could be useful in preventing the formation of scale in water pipes - this would protect installations
