SuperCORR A Corrosion Protection Spray

Corrosion protection spray

 

Dry lubricant and corrosion protection spray reduces production downtime on industrial automation systems

Improving manufacturing productivity needs increasing numbers of robots, handling and positioning systems and conveyors which in factory environments need both scheduled and emergency maintenance plans to ensure continuous reliability. Failure of any part of the system will result in downtime and seriously disrupt production.

SuperCORR A from EnviroTech Europe is an innovative thin film dry lubricant spray with corrosion protective properties which does not attract dust or dirt, is stable and coats surfaces with an ultra-thin self healing, lubricant film unaffected by water or solvents and resistant to harsh corrosive atmospheres and high temperatures.

A recent case affected some clients of specialist cleaning equipment manufacturer C&C Hydrosonics a division of U.S giant Crest Ultrasonics to solve a problem occurring on x-y axis linear tracks on the Transystem automatic handling system fitted to enclosed multi tank cleaning systems both aqueous and solvent based.

Transystem automatic handling systems are programmable to automatically process baskets or jigs through liquid immersion cleaning cycles, transferring between the tanks, lowering and raising work between the tanks of cleaning liquids. The motorised carriages use nylon wheels running on case hardened mild steel tracks which can corrode during immersion and in the harsh humid atmospheres within the machine canopies.

Corrosion prevents smooth running with wheels seizing and binding on the tracks. Vibration can then cause components to be shaken from jigs or in extreme cases the carriage will stall requiring intervention by maintenance engineers to physically remove surface corrosion and re-lubricate tracks with oil. This is only a temporary measure as the oil is quickly removed by the solvents or water-based cleaning solutions with corrosion reoccurring in a short time.

Extensive trials over a six-month period with both water and solvent based systems demonstrated that SuperCORR A offered a simple solution to the problem with no corrosion of tracks or seizures during the trial period. Previously seizures needing attention occurred every few weeks now an aerosol spray of SuperCORR A is used only during normal service visits and is used as the routine lubricant during manufacture of the handling system.

Lee Casey, Managing Director of C&C Hydrosonics is delighted with the cost savings on reduced service and maintenance calls using SuperCORR A and that the inconvenience for users of the Transystem equipment has been eliminated. Use of SuperCORR A is recommended on all Crest handling systems worldwide.

Reduce maintenance costs and protect automation equipment with SuperCORR A, now available from EnviroTech Europe Ltd and distributors worldwide.

ProSolv®5408e cleaning solvent for flushing refrigeration pipeline systems

cleaning solvent for flushing refrigeration pipeline systems

Cleaning solvent for flushing refrigeration pipeline systems

Concerns connected with the challenging environmental profile of traditional refrigerant gases have led to changes in legislation which are a driving factor in phase-outs and bans on the use of some gases to remove the older materials typically with high ozone depletion (ODP) and global warming potential (GWP).  Systems can be replaced or refurbished with new models using compressors able to use more sustainable and acceptable gases. The evolving trend to newer refrigerants continues as the chemistries develop. The refrigerant R-22, which itself was an improvement over earlier refrigerants, is phased out and replaced with R-410a and other alternatives based on HFOs are being marketed.

Retrofitting of current refrigeration systems to accommodate the new developments is not straightforward as most refrigerant gases are not cross-compatible, so the necessity to completely remove all traces of the older versions from the system, including refrigerant lines is essential.

Of course, where possible it’s best simply to replace existing lines with new ones. However, it’s not always possible to do this cost-effectively, especially when the old piping runs under floors or through walls. In such cases thoroughly flushing existing pipework is especially important because even tiny traces of impurities left in the lines can damage new equipment and lead to compressor failure.

THE PERFECT SOLVENT FOR FLUSH CLEANING REFRIGERATION PIPEWORK

Your first step to proper pipework flushing is to select the right solvent. The solvent you choose must be highly effective at dissolving oil grease and other contaminants, to ensure that all residue is removed from the pipes and must be sustainable, environmentally friendly and comply with current legislation.

ProSolv 5408e is the ideal solution to this problem with a profile of properties and advantages making it perfect as your solvent of choice for refrigerant pipeline flushing.

No flash point Non flammable liquid.
High specific gravity gives a high soil suspension loading.
High solvency strength with a KB value of 98.
Powerful cleaning agent that can flush lines fast, dissolving oil and grease releasing soils from the inner surfaces of pipelines and fittings
Volatile for fast evaporation. Removing ALL solvent from the pipework after flushing is vital, very volatile so evaporates fast.
Environmentally responsible. ProSolv 5408e is sustainable and kind to the environment with very low global warming potential, zero ozone depleting potential (ODP).
Safe for operators when user conditions are followed.
Economical as it is easily distilled for reuse. No testing or stabilisation required.

PROCEDURE FOR FLUSH CLEANING REFRIGERANT PIPELINES WITH ProSolv®5408e

Of course, simply replacing old piping is the only way to be 100 percent sure that your lines are clean. But in retrofit situations where complete replacement is not possible, flushing the lines with ProSolv 5408e solvent is the best alternative solution for the protection and long working life of your refrigeration system upgrade.

1 – Remove any obstacles. Any equipment and components such as valve, filters and expansion valves that might obstruct the line should be removed prior to the purge.
2 – Pre-flush. This will dislodge any loose debris from the sides of the lines enabling more effective use of the solvent, oil free air or nitrogen at 120 psi is recommended. It’s also good practice to oscillate the pressure to encourage dislodging of debris.
3 – Preparing the pipework. Reducing the length of piping can be more effective due to the pressure loss in long lengths. Section the operation into 15 metre lengths by cutting pipes where necessary. One end of the pipe must be fitted with a connector for the pipe to the nitrogen supply while the exit needs a restrictor valve to allow variable pressures to shock loose particles from internal walls.
IMPORTANT – Flushing with solvent. Refer to ProSolv 5408e Safety Data Sheets for advice on operator protection using solvents.
4 – Safe working. Full PPE with suitable eye protection goggles and gloves must be worn. Solvent fumes are heavier than air and exposure levels can easily be reached working in pits or enclosed spaces. Always institute a ‘buddy system’ and use air fed face masks with attached line.
5 – Delivering solvent. Use a drum pump electric or hand operated with a flexible tube connection for delivering the solvent to the open end of the pipe or tubing to flush the internal surfaces. Using a fresh drum of ProSolv®5408e connect drum pump and the delivery tube to the end of pipe/tube to be cleaned using a pre-fitted screwed or compression fitting.
6 – Drainage and Testing. The drainage end of the pipe or tube should be fitted with a flexible tube into a tank or drain sump allowing samples to be taken in a glass bottle or tube at regular intervals to be sure when no particles or soils are being expelled. The colour of the solvent will change as oil and soluble contaminants are removed and flushing must continue until the flow is totally clear and water white.
7 – Post-flush. ProSolv 5408e solvent is volatile so will dry completely using an oil free airline or nitrogen supply connected to the end of the cleaned pipe/tubing.
8 – A wipe of the pipe/tubing surface at the inlet and outlet using solvent saturated lint free cloth completes the cleaning. If not connected immediately to other parts of the system enclose both ends of cleaned item to prevent recontamination.

Used ProSolv 5408e should not be reused for flushing but can be recovered for reuse by a simple distillation process. Removal from site should use licensed disposal companies.

Lubricant and corrosion protection spray

SuperCORR A multitasking lubricant and corrosion protection spray solving problems across industry.

Corrosion protection spray

Originally developed to comply with military standards for a lubricant and corrosion protective for the USAF (MIL- DTL- 8717B Type 1 Avionics cleaning and corrosion prevention and control) SuperCORR A is now the industry standard for in service maintenance by military and commercial airlines and MOR facilities worldwide. It is recognised for its unique formulation which contains extremely long-lasting, proprietary anti-corrosive inhibitors providing a superior lubrication coefficient and protecting 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 and metal components.

Its use in aircraft is well established for maintenance but major aerospace and turbine manufacturer is currently completing trials with SuperCORR A to protect machined parts in transit and storage, worldwide, under variable temperature and humidity conditions against corrosion during long term storage. The protective film is self-sealing during movement and handling and can be removed before use if necessary.

Amongst other established uses for mercantile lubrication and corrosion protection suppliers of marine maintenance packages, which include SuperCORR A, to ships on docking. These are used for routine lubrication and anticorrosion maintenance in the harsh conditions experienced at sea. The aerosol cans make access to parts easy for the engineering crew in difficult locations on ship. Unpainted mild steel will not rust on exterior surfaces directly exposed to sea water spray for at least 6 months protecting electrical connectors, switches, chains, drive shafts from corrosion while maintaining lubrication on moving surfaces.

In another interesting application SuperCORR A reduces maintenance under extreme conditions to protect the metal edges of the composite blades on wind turbines. These are subject to the continuous corrosive effects of wind, rain and salt laden sea spray which erodes and corrodes the metal. The protective film produced by application of SuperCORR A is impervious to water and lubricates the airflow across the blade edges preventing corrosion of the metal. Safety on these wind turbines where maintenance engineers are working at great height and perilous conditions of exposure to high winds entails reliance on critical fall arrest equipment. Corrosion in the bearings, clutches and wires used in the arrester mechanisms can lead to failure and potentially serious injury or loss of life. SuperCORR A protects against corrosion in these safety critical components.

The oil and gas industries use SuperCORR A as a reliable easily applied protective coating against corrosion of tools and parts in storage and transit. High humidity and wide fluctuations in temperature experienced on oil rigs at sea and on land need the same protection and lubrication  for  critical fall arresters used on wind turbines and in other situations where working at high levels in extreme weather conditions imposes the same risks.

Monitoring systems, electronics. switches and moving surfaces also need protection and SuperCORR A being based on nonorganic lubricants will not attack or degrade the materials used in manufacturing the components but reject water from protected surfaces preventing shorts, and by preventing fretting corrosion ensuring good connections and smooth movement in bearings and chains.

Portable diesel and LP generators are widely used in the oil and gas and mineral extraction industries in remote, hostile environments. Between flights aircraft services are powered by generators during loading and unloading and maintenance.  All these uses require connection and disconnection, often many times a day. Connector seals, when broken, allows water, sand or dust to penetrate and with the flexing of the connector cables allows sufficient movement between the metal surfaces of the connector pins to produce fretting corrosion. A simple spray between connection breaks ejects water and particulates and protects and lubricates the contacts improving reliability of supply.

Building and construction industries offer other unusual uses for SuperCORR A. Unpainted hatches, grilles, and window furniture are galvanised if manufactured in steel and anodised if aluminium or a zinc alloy. These need protection in storage against scratches and once installed exposure to wind and especially acidic rain dulls surfaces and produces unsightly white surface corrosion. An onsite spray with SuperCORR A on completion of the installation protects the surfaces with an invisible film and at the same time applies a lubricant film to hinges and bearings in handles and other moving parts such as window openers  reducing the needs for maintenance often in inaccessible places at high level.

In all forms of transportation from Amtrac trains, DLR and other lightweight rail systems and for protection of transit equipment and services for underground tunnels and systems to motorsport. racing and rally cars, electric cars and on emergency vehicles SuperCORR A is used for protection and lubrication of connectors, electrical systems and switches, mechanical controls during manufacture, assembly and servicing. Haulage is another area where the ability to displace water from exposed contacts can ensure reliable operation in extreme conditions.

The unique combination of properties in one small aerosol can gives maintenance and service engineers a very safe solution to an enormous range of problems.

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.

SuperCORR A, demonstrating its superior performance.

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

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

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.

Tried And Tested Vapour Degreasing Solvent For Critical Cleaning

EnSolv vapour degreasing solvents distributed by EnviroTech Europe Ltd has been used over the last 30 years by hundreds of companies and for thousands of different applications.

With the unique stabiliser/inhibitor system giving stability and long life for degreasing tanks, reducing maintenance costs and low solvent losses EnSolv is very widely used and approved. Intense worldwide competition needs very tight control of manufacturing costs. EnSolv vapour degreasing solvents gives our users a tried and tested, economical product with the lowest operating costs.

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.

Replace Toxic Solvents For Industrial Cleaning

Use Clarea degreasers to replace toxic solvents
for industrial cleaning

Clarea solvent degreasers are a newly formulated range of highly refined hydrocarbon based degreasing solvents with very high cleaning power and low odour, which can be used as an alternative to other hazardous solvents used throughout industry to remove oils, greases, hydraulic fluids cutting fluids and a wide variety of hydrocarbon based protective coatings.

Clarea solvents can be used in dip, brush or in hand-wipe applications.

Clarea HC40 has a relatively fast evaporation rate with low odour and is suited to hand wipe and brush cleaning and air dries while Clarea HC62 is not classified as flammable and is typically used with immersion dip and soak tanks for heavily contaminated parts where oven or forced air drying is acceptable.

Clarea solvents leave minimal residues on drying and are compatible with all metals and many plastics and composite materials. Clarea degreasing solvents can reduce usage and contain no halogens such as chlorine or fluorine so do not deplete the ozone layer or contribute to global warming.

Clarea solvents are one of the ranges of solvent based cleaners and surface treatment products from cleaning specialists EnviroTech Europe Ltd.
