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

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.

SuperCORR A For Aircraft Corrosion Protection

SuperCORR A lubricant spray with anti- corrosion properties meets the Mil-L- 87177A specification for aircraft maintenance for USAF.

The effects of using SuperCORR A, a corrosion-inhibitive lubricant spray, which meets the requirements of Mil-L-87177A, are reported in detail in this paper by Scott Dotson in a USAF study for aircraft reliability and maintenance. SuperCORR A can be safely used with all metals and plastics and other materials of construction. The dry film is self-healing and can be used for electrical and mechanical maintenance to improve reliability and reduce failures in use due to corrosion.

Aquus CL-One Water Based Cleaning

Aquus CL-One is THE general-purpose concentrated cleaning system based on a mixture of surfactants, does not include toxic solvents and exhibits a unique combination of characteristics that are not found in other commercially available products.

Aquus CL-One for water based cleaning is biodegradable, non-flammable, non-toxic at used concentrations and, unlike almost all other surfactant systems, is both hydrophilic (water attracting) and oleophobic (oil-repelling).

Aquus CL-One offers excellent emulsion-breaking capability in addition to its unusual combination of properties that makes it so practical for a wide range of industrial applications.

Aquus CL-One concentrated cleaner is formulated to offer one solution for all cleaning applications reduces time and costs by removing the need for multiple cleaning products usually needed to deal with the challenges presented by the wide range of soils, oils and other contaminants which need to be removed.  Safe for the environment and users, contains no solvents and is biodegradable within 30 days. One of the innumerable industry specific applications are discussed below but many more will be experienced in day to day operations. With only one product for all cleaning applications incorrect selection or dangerous uses can be avoided.

MANUFACTURING, ENGINEERING and MAINTENANCE

Formulated to tackle the numerous cleaning applications required by the manufacturing and engineering industries. Concentrated Aquus chemistry is activated by water, varying concentration levels allows the most economical solution to be chosen for specific applications from parts cleaning to surface preparations for finishing or heavier soiling on process machines all from one product. Some of the hundreds of applications are discussed below.

Our applications experts and samples of the product are available by completing the contact form.

PARTS CLEANING

Ideally suited for cleaning protective coatings, grease and soils from used or parts during manufacturing processes.  Aquus CL-One can be used in parts washing equipment or dipping tanks without modifications and leaves no residue after drying.

Oil and grease separate from the water and coalesces on the surface of the cleaning solution which can then be skimmed off for recovery and recycling. Precipitated solids free of hydrocarbons can be removed by settlement or in filtration systems. The cleaning solution can be reused continuously within its chemical effectiveness parameters for efficient and economical use.

GENERAL CLEANING

Aquus CL-One is remarkably efficient removing oils, greases, and accompanying dirt from most surfaces.  It can be applied by wiping surfaces, mopping floors or in rotary floor cleaning machines, or by low or high-pressure spray. Aquus CL-One is also an effective cleaner in industrial kitchens removing grease and baked on deposits on internal surfaces of ovens and trays. For maintenance of machines, engines etc oil and grease is easily removed pre and post assembly making inspection and repair easier, quicker and cheaper by returning equipment to use.

PREPARATION FOR PAINTING OR POWDER COATING

Aquus CL-One is an excellent choice for cleaning mild steel and ferrous metal parts which are not painted immediately. Process oils and grease on the parts protect the surfaces from changes in humidity but once removed flash rusting can occur while drying.  Aquus CL-One prevents this leaving an invisible barrier on the metal surfaces providing extended corrosion protection during storage, fabrication or assembly before finishing. The barrier film can be painted over without additional rinsing and without affecting adhesion of paint or powder coatings.  Any cleaning system can be used hand wiping, dip tanks, or pressure washing.

WASTE TREATMENT SYSTEMS

Aquus CL-One is extremely effective in separating oil, water, and solids in drains and conveyor traps and sumps on automatic honing, turning and grinding machines when using water based lubricant and cooling liquids. The emulsions are broken allowing cleaned metal dust, shavings and dirt to precipitate to the bottom, the solution of Aquus CL-One and water retains the active cleaner in the middle layer, and oil and grease float to the top. The efficiency of oil/water separators in plant waste treatment systems are significantly increased while the amount of toxic waste requiring disposal after treatment is significantly reduced. The cleaning solution can be reused to treat more waste streams until biodegradation occurs and it no longer operates effectively.
