Corrosion control for extreme conditions

Preventing disaster with corrosion control – lt is clear that the use of SuperCORR A for corrosion control can bring financial savings in reduced maintenance and replacement costs and more importantly greater safety.

Most people associate corrosion control with rust, which only happens in things made of ferrous metals such as steel girders, ships, iron pipes, steel reinforcement rods, and steel tanks and is the reason metals deteriorate and fail. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals corrode on contact with both fresh and saltwater as well as water vapour. They will also corrode when they come into contact with chemicals, liquid acids as well as acidic vapours, salts and bases, and bacteria.

Corrosion is also a problem in electronics from circuit breakers and contactors to wire bond connectors and soldered components on a printed circuit board. Electrical connectors and plugs are very prone to corrosion as well as non-ferrous metals and alloys such as copper and aluminium. For purposes here, corrosion can be defined as a chemical or electrochemical reaction between a material, usually a metal, and its environment that produces a deterioration of the material and its properties.

Corrosion is an increasingly serious and costly problem that can lead to plant and equipment failures which range from being an annoyance to being catastrophic. Failures caused by corrosion could and do lead to a direct failure of a component which could affect the entire system and can not only be very expensive in terms of down time to repair or replace plant and equipment, but can also prove to be very costly in loss of productivity but to human life.

Preventing disaster with corrosion control – Electrical component failure

If an electrical component fails that affects your car that is just an annoyance and can be repaired fairly inexpensively and if you’re driving the car rolls to a stop and you get out. However, if an electrical system failed because of a corroded electrical contact in a control circuit which caused another electrical failure in the master fuel control system on an airliner at 30,000 feet with 250 people on board that could prove to be catastrophic. While the electrical contacts in both cases failed due to corrosion both failures could very well have been prevented by using SuperCORR A in a Corrosion Prevention Program incorporated into all routine maintenance programs.

“Self-healing” ultra-thin film barrier

However, if an electrical system failed because of a corroded electrical contact in a control circuit which caused another electrical failure in the master fuel control system on an airliner at 30,000 feet with 250 people on board that could prove to be catastrophic.

It is much simpler and a lot less costly to prevent corrosion than to repair or replace the damaged equipment or component that failed because of corrosion. The photographs show the effects of protecting metal surfaces and components in extreme condition with a SuperCORR A aerosol.

SuperCORR A is a non-conductive, non- flammable, hydrophobic, ultra-thin film lubricant and corrosion preventive compound. It is a “self-healing” ultra-thin coating that lubricates and protects metals, motors, electrical and electronic components from moisture, salts, chlorides, acids, and oxidation.

Corrosion of electrical components is very prevalent problem and one that can be prevented. Preventing moisture from coming in to contact with the electrical components is the key. An ultra-thin film of SuperCORR A will not only prevent moisture from coming in to contact but will displace moisture that is there already.

SuperCORR A is hydrophobic, that is it repels water and forms a “self-healing” ultra-thin film barrier that prevents moisture from coming into contact with the coated electronic components.

n-Propyl Bromide (nPb) update

For more than 30 years n-Propyl Bromide (nPB) has offered users a safer solvent as a replacement for the carcinogen trichloroethylene as customers using EnSolv will know. Unfortunately, European legislation has set a “sunset date” for the use of nPB, the solvent used as the base material for EnSolv. The inclusion of nPB into Annex XIV has been challenged in the European Court by our supplier, the only manufacturer in the EU. EnviroTech Europe Ltd have always sourced from this consistently high quality manufacturer rather than search out cheaper often lower quality alternatives from Asia.

 

The Court was very receptive to all the points made. Despite our firm belief that the inclusion of nPB into Annex XIV was not carried out on the basis of all available evidence and we expected a decision earlier, this has been delayed until later in the year. EnviroTech will inform all clients of the outcome as soon as the decision is known.

Just in case EnviroTech are moving forward.

EnviroTech Europe are in the final stages of development of some new and exciting “drop in” cost effective replacements for all our valued customers old and new.

SuperCORR A Protects From Corrosion


Super
CORR
A maintains performance of thinner gold plating used on electrical contacts to protect from corrosion.

SuperCORR A ultra-thin film dry lubricant prevents galling corrosion caused by vibration on printed circuit leads and connectors.

Advances in gold plating technology allows manufacturers to reduce plating thickness on the substrate metal used for contacts in electrical connectors.

The thickness of gold plating is decreasing and becoming thinner over time which reduces manufacturing costs as gold becomes increasingly expensive.

Reducing thickness of gold plating however can result in failures caused by corrosion. Minute irregularities in the surface of the connector’s base metal leads to irregular or uneven wear causing the “high spots” on the contacts to wear through the gold plating. Using SuperCORR A aerosols prevents or delays corrosion and subsequent failures.

TESTING SuperCORR A IN CONNECTOR “RUB TEST”.

SuperCORR A is a lubricant containing corrosion preventive compounds, and as is the case with all lubricants they will be worn off over time. A manufacturer of connectors tested SuperCORR A to see what the “life” of the lubricant was in a “rub test”. The typical test is 20,000 cycles, i.e. unplug, plug in is one cycle. The test results demonstrated that after 20,000 cycles there were no failures.

It was decided to take it one more step and run the same tests for 200,000 cycles. The results again showed no indications of galling or scoring on the USB connectors. The USB connector looked and tested as good as new.

MILITARY USES OF SuperCORR A

As it is compliant with Mil-L-87177A specifications SuperCORR A is used by the U.S. Air Force to protect the intricate workings of the F-16 Fighter Jet and by the U.S. Navy on the P 3 Orion electronic surveillance aircraft. Savings for the U.S. government is estimated at $50 million per year. Commercial Aviation aircraft manufacturers recommend it for electrical and close mechanical application, especially where flights are in salt fog or high humidity.

Containing extremely long-lasting, proprietary anti-corrosive inhibitors SuperCORR A provides a superior lubrication coefficient and protects components against moisture, wear, general and fretting corrosion, surface static electricity, corona, and other electro migration problems. The ultra-thin, non-flammable lubricant film is only 7 microns (0.0007 inch) thick and is formulated without sulphates, chlorides or halogens to meet the EU RoHS directive. It is unexcelled in preventing deterioration and contamination on all surfaces of electronic equipment.

SuperCORR A Protects Electrical Control Systems In Waste Water Treatment Plants

SuperCORR A protects electrical control systems against corrosive environments in Waste Water Treatment Plants

SuperCORR A


Super
CORR
A protects electrical control systems against corrosive environments in Waste Water Treatment Plants

Waste water treatment plants are subject to corrosion and rust from a variety of causes. One which is Hydrogen Sulphide gas, (H2S.). Corrosion is an insidious and costly problem that causes just about every metal and metal alloy to fail over time. Metals in electrical and electronic control systems, components, connectors, and switches are of most concern.

Corrosion is found in almost all process industries including wastewater treatment plants, pulp and paper mills, fertilizer plants, and numerous other industries and is not going away.  Establishing a Preventative Maintenance Program that includes corrosion prevention makes it a problem that can be cost effectively dealt with.

Corrosion prevention

One proven and positive way to reduce, if not prevent, corrosion altogether from causing electrical, electronic systems and component failures is by using an ultra-thin film water displacing lubricant material with corrosion inhibiting compound.

SuperCORR A has all these properties.  A proprietary formulation packaged in aerosol cans it uses a non-flammable fast drying carrier solvent. The aerosol is supplied with a flexible tube applicator which allows the protective coating to be applied accurately even in difficult to get to components.

Removal of surface contamination from the metallic contact surfaces on switches and circuit breakers is essential to ensure fault free operation.

The aerosol uses the unique SuperCORR A formulation to lift and remove dust and soils from the metal contact surfaces. An inert compound that neither reduces nor increases the electrical conductivity SuperCORR-A also provides long term protection from corrosion and electrical arcing that can lead to shorts and subsequent circuit failures.

An application of SuperCORR A also prevents corrosion on metals and components in areas where acid or corrosive vapours may form or  accumulate such as battery storage compartments and external power connectors.

Testing SuperCORR A in corrosive environments

SuperCORR A (MIL L 871777A Type 1 Grade B lubricant) was subjected to extensive and vigorous Mixed Flowing Gas (MFG) testing at Battelle Laboratories under a U.S. Government contract.

Specifications ASTM B827 and  ASTM B845 Class III MFG testing protocol were used. This included gases with high corrosion potentials including Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S), Nitrous Oxide(NO2), and Chlorine (Cl2).

ASTM B845 refers to techniques for mixed flowing gas (MFG) tests containing gases that are applied to evaluate devices containing electrical contacts such as slip rings, separable connectors, electromechanical relays or switch contacts.

The MFG tests accelerate corrosive degradation processes. Connectors and contacts within closed electronic cabinets may be affected by an environment of different severity than the outside of these cabinets.

ASTM B827 outlines procedures for conducting environmental tests involving exposures to controlled quantities of corrosive gas mixtures. Equipment and methods for gas, temperature, and humidity control for tests to be conducted in a reproducible manner are described.

Reproducibility is measured using control coupons whose corrosion films are evaluated by mass gain, coulometry, or by various electron and X-ray beam analysis techniques.

Reproducibility can also be measured by in situ corrosion rate monitors using electrical resistance or mass/frequency change methods. Full copies of these tests can be made available on request.

Industrial applications of SuperCORR A 

SuperCORR A has a proven performance record in protecting electrical components, systems, connectors and electronics. The coating will also prevent the ingress of moisture and other contaminants onto the connector surfaces.  These initiate corrosions and cause intermittent component failure or a premature degradation of component performance.

The Battelle Laboratories studies provided data and related processing information validating the benefits of using SuperCORR A. to protect the electrical connectors of line replacement units (LRUs) used in military aircraft avionic applications.

The results of the laboratory and field-testing activities conducted in these studies confirm that SuperCORR A is an extremely effective coating to protect electronics, electrical components and systems including switches and connectors with no compromise of the integrity of the electrical component/system even in very corrosive environments.

As a result of testing on site at a number of private and public companies with the confirmatory work at  Battelle Laboratories SuperCORR A is being used to reduce maintenance and repair costs in a range of different industrial applications. Wastewater treatment plants, pulp and paper mills, automotive and heavy equipment industries and in the power production sector oil and gas and renewable energy and in both the aviation and maritime industries.

SuperCORR A Cleans And Protects Electrical Connections

SuperCORR A aerosols clean and protect electrical connections on mobile generators during aircraft ground services.

Clean And Protect Electrical Connections


Super
CORR
A aerosols clean and protect electrical connections on mobile generators during aircraft ground services.

Aircraft ground services operate in extreme and often hostile weather environments. Mobile generators connect and disconnect many times a day often in extreme weather conditions. Each disconnection can allow dust or rain water onto the electrical connections. SuperCORR A aerosol cleans, dries, lubricates and protects electrical connections on site ensuring uninterrupted service.  

Mobile generators are used throughout the world by extraction industries and manufacturing plants in remote and hostile locations for essential power production. Dusty and wet environments in deserts, mines, grinding mills, pulp and paper mills and on land or sea drilling rigs for gas and oil production. Generators powering aircraft services while stationary connect and disconnect many times a day in extreme conditions. The flexing of the connecting cables allows sufficient movement between the metal surfaces of the connecting pins to produce fretting corrosion which reduces, interrupts or produces failures in supply.

SuperCORR A is an aerosol lubricant containing corrosion preventive compounds, and, as is the case with all lubricants, they can be worn off over time. A manufacturer of connectors tested SuperCORR A  to see what the “life” of the lubricant was in a “rub test”. The typical test is 20,000 cycles, i.e. unplug, plug in is one cycle. The test results demonstrated that after 20,000 cycles there were no failures. It was decided to take it one more step and run the same tests for 200,000 cycles. The results again showed no indications of galling or scoring on the connectors at all. The connector looked and tested as good as new. This test was run under clean conditions in a laboratory but demonstrates the effectiveness of the protective lubricant in SuperCORR A . As it meets Mil-DLT-87177B specifications it is used by the U.S. Air Force to protect the intricate workings of the F-16 and F-15 fighter jets and by the U.S. Navy on the P 3 Orion electronic surveillance aircraft. Savings for the U.S. government is estimated at $50 million per year. Commercial Aviation aircraft manufacturers recommend it for avionics and electrical switches and connectors and close mechanical application, especially where flights are in salt fog or high humidity.

Containing extremely long-lasting, proprietary anti-corrosive inhibitors, SuperCORR A provides a superior lubrication coefficient and protects components against moisture, wear, general and fretting corrosion, surface static electricity, corona, and other electro migration problems. The super thin non-flammable lubricant film is only 7 microns (0.0007 inch) thick and is formulated without sulphates, chlorides or halogens to meet the RoHS directive. It is unexcelled in preventing deterioration and contamination on all surfaces of electronic equipment.

Very fast drying environmentally acceptable solvents are used as carriers and propellants which will not affect most plastics, substrates, metals or other materials used in connector manufacture. The aerosols are supplied with probes which allow access to pins and connector tubes where the low surface tension repels water, dirt dust and metal particles from blind holes and surfaces to produce thoroughly clean holes and surfaces before a second application applies the lubricant film. Reconnection to the supply with cleaned sections of the connector ensures reliable operation even in the most testing of environments. This easy maintenance from one can of SuperCORR A allows this essential task to be carried out in any conditions quickly, easily and securely.
