Immersion Tank - Rust Control

We are a high volume inspection company examining automotive air bag components using robitic immersion (UT) techniques. The industry is quickly moving from aluminum to steel components.

I would appreciate any information or suggestions on a water based additive for raw uncoated steel for the immersion tanks that does not leave any oily residue or foaming properties and of course, environmental friendly.
