A Cost Effective and Proven Corrosion Preventative Solution.
By Larry Clark, EnviroTech Europe Ltd
Electrical and electronic equipment and components that are used in adverse work environments, e.g. the oil and gas industry, waste water treatment plants, and the pulp and paper industry, where corrosive gases such as hydrogen sulphide are found cause severe corrosion and the rapid deterioration of the electronic components and equipment including connectors and switches used in these and other work environments. One economical way to prevent or inhibit corrosion from destroying electronics and electrical components is to use CORR-EX LCP-177, Ultra Thin Film, Water Displacing, Lubricant and Corrosion Inhibiting Compound.
If you or your company aren’t worried about costs then by default you aren’t concerned about corrosion or it’s associated costs in lost productivity and lost revenue caused by plant and equipment down time then this a paper that you should just skip. But if you and your company are concerned about costs including the amount money and man hours to repair or replace components to keep an electrical system or electronics operating, an aircraft flying, or a machine running because of failures caused by corrosion then this paper is for you!
Corrosion, in its many forms, is costing both private and public sector hundreds of billions of Euros a year! While all metals corrode due to a number of different factors there is no simple or single solution to the overall corrosion problem. However there are some very cost effective and proven ways to prevent corrosion and failures caused by corrosion and thereby reducing or eliminating associated costs and increasing safety which should be foremost in the mind set of any Preventative Maintenance Programme manager.
One proven and cost effective solution to the corrosion problem is CORR-EX LCP-177, a water displacing, ultra thin film lubricant with corrosion preventative properties. CORR-EX LCP-177 was designed specifically to lubricate and prevent corrosion in electrical fittings and connectors; electrical and avionic harness assemblies and connectors; electrical and electronic switches; close tolerance and dissimilar metal components; lighting connectors and sockets; and the list goes on and on.
CORR-EX LCP-177 is a unique non-flammable “self healing” ultra thin film lubricant with a proprietary corrosion preventive compound that will not harden or crack. CORR-EX LCP-177 is not a wax or oil based product and is formulated without sulphates, chlorides or halogens.
CORR-EX LCP-177 inhibits corrosion caused by exposure to both fresh and salt water moisture as well as the corrosive vapours from Sulphur dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S), Ammonia (NH3), and Chlorine (CL12) based gases found in waste water and sewer treatment plants, pulp and paper mills and plants, chemical and petroleum plants, maritime industry, aircraft/airline industry, military equipment including ships, aircraft, and rolling stock, auto industry, farming and agriculture industry, and the list goes on. Extending the working life of electrical components and systems and other critical items by preventing the deterioration and/or failure caused by corrosion can significantly reduce downtime and operating and maintenance costs as well as enhance safety.
The question for you is: What is the cost of NOT using CORR-EX LCP-177 in your Preventative Maintenance Programme?
CORR-EX LCP-177 is available from EnviroTech Europe Ltd and distributors worldwide.
