Improve connector maintenance on portable gas generators

Why using SuperCORR A for connector maintenance on portable gas generators improves electrical supplies in extreme conditions.

connector maintenance
Gas Turbine generators are used for electrical power supplies by extraction industries and manufacturing plants in remote and hostile locations. 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.

Portable generators maintain aircraft services at standings are connected and disconnected many times a day in extreme weather conditions.

These applications and locations test connector seals allowing dust or water to infiltrate. This with 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 electrical supply. Regular maintenance of electrical connectors and control systems is vital to be certain of uninterrupted supply.

SuperCORR A is an aerosol lubricant containing corrosion preventive compounds, which, as is the case with all lubricants, can be worn off over time.

A leading 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- MIL-DTL-87177B (Revised 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. Commercial aviation aircraft manufacturers recommend it for electrical and close metal mechanical application, especially where flights are in salt fog or high humidity.

Containing extremely long-lasting, proprietary anti-corrosive inhibitors SuperCORR Aprovides 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 (0.007 mm) 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 allowing 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 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.

Replace n-Propyl bromide with ProSolv vapour degreasing solvent

High performance vapour degreasing solvent, simple “drop-in” replacement for n-Propyl bromide and trichloroethylene.

Vapour degreasing is one of the most widely used cleaning systems in the engineering industry. The most commonly used solvents are based on Trichloroethylene, n-Propyl bromide and other chlorinated solvents which under EU REACH regulations may require authorisation for use as metal cleaners after July 2020. If you are using vapour degreasing solvents based on any of these solvents EnviroTech Europe can offer excellent drop-in replacement products developed from 40 years of experience supplying market leading cleaning solvents to the engineering industries.

ProSolv® is an alternative chemistry developed by EnviroTech Europe to replace chlorinated solvents. It can be used in most existing vapour degreasing equipment and can be used safely for immersion cleaning using ultrasonics, for which it has been optimised. with a high specific gravity and very low surface tension.

Unlike some other chlorinated and halogenated blends such as trichloroethylene, ProSolv® is an excellent choice to replace flammable solvents such as MEK, Acetone, Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or hydrocarbons where manual wiping or brush cleaning is the preferred method. It is a non-flammable azeotropic blend which can be used for manual cleaning in suitably ventilated areas and recycled by distillation for reuse through many cycles. It is a very stable mixture with no need for monitoring or the need for additives or stabilisers.

In other applications ProSolv® offers a cost-effective alternative for halogenated solvents in formulations for dip, spray or aerosol applications and as a fast-drying carrier solvent for oil, silicones and other lubricants. Simple to install in any standard machine for vapour and vapour liquid degreasing.

ProSolv® is non-flammable (No Flash Point) with high solvency (KB Value 91) with a very low surface tension and low boiling point making it highly productive and economical in use. A very stable azeotrope in use no additives or testing required. Leaves minimal non-volatile residue.

Importantly the ProSolv® formulation is kind to the environment as it contains no hazardous air pollutants and is safe for users. It has zero ozone depletion (ODP) with very low global warming potential (GWP). ProSolv® is compatible with all metals.

Alternatives to nPB

nPB solvent for vapour degreasing is banned from July 2020 – EnviroTech Europe has low cost, “drop-in” alternatives to nPB.

replace n-Propyl Bromide

nPB solvent for vapour degreasing is banned from July 2020 – EnviroTech Europe has low cost, “drop-in” alternatives to nPB.

Bad news for your business. Coronavirus, Brexit, redundancies, social distancing reduced cash flow.

If that is not enough and you are using nPB solvent for vapour degreasing that’s another problem to worry about as it cannot be used after 4th July.  Don’t panic it’s not too late to change and comply, as we have “drop in” replacements which are guaranteed to give the same results at no increase in your costs of usage. It is late but we can give you the information to easily make the change in a day without fuss.

You have questions – of course:
How can it be so simple?

The EnSolv range of stabilised nPB based vapour degreasing solvents is the market leader in this field worldwide. EnviroTech Europe, the manufacturers, know this product inside out with hundreds of satisfied users.  We have been fighting the EU authorities for 20 years regarding classification, but with limited resources and the corporate giants with money to lose as EnSolv gained more and more of the market. Money talks so the Commission ignored the evidence and banned nPB for use as a vapour degreasing solvent with the sunset date in July 2020. If you are interested in the history, it is all explained in detail on our website.

With our extensive knowledge of user needs EnviroTech Europe, during the intervening years, have developed new compliant solvent formulations which are simple “drop-in” replacements.

Samuel Banners Ltd appointed EnSolv distributors for UK

EnSolv is the only realistic safe, economical alternative to the carcinogen trichloroethylene for vapour degreasing.

Responding to the increasingly stringent legislation on solvent usage EnviroTech have over the years reacted to the changes and introduced and developed the solvent minimisation programme which gives help and guidance to users in ways to reduce the amount of solvents used in vapour degreasing to comply with the EU Solvents Emission directive. This is achieved by a combination of working with partners to improve equipment, better solvent handling and more efficient use of the vapour degreasing process. Training staff in proper loading of work baskets, correct timing procedures and many more detailed improvements which when combined not just reduce solvent usage but make it safer for the operator and the environment while considerably reducing costs for users. After discussion with many potential distributors to find a partner with the same ethical standards, passion for customer service and training and with the high level of knowledge to service and support our customers we are very pleased to announce Samuel Banner Ltd will be the distributors for EnSolv in the UK from November 2013.

Established 150 years ago Samuel BANNERS Ltd were granted the patent for White Spirit and from that time they have continued to be involved with solvents manufacturing and distribution.

A Real Fire Suppression System Problem and Your Electronics and Computer Systems

HFC-227ea is replacing Halon 1301 as the gaseous fire suppression agent for data processing and electronic equipment.

However when activated in a fire situation HFC-227ea will decompose to produce Hydrogen Fluoride. This is a real and ongoing concern. Why? Because Hydrogen Fluoride causes major corrosion problems for electronics and connectors. You may save your equipment but for how long?

In 2004 the Institute of Research and Construction in Canada published a study on HFC-227ea (C3F7H) paper, Thermal decomposition products from fire suppression with HFC-227ea in an electronic facility 1. That study was followed by Corrosion of Electronic Components by Hydrogen Fluoride (HF)2 in 2008 by the Fire Research Program of the National Research Council of Canada. Both studies were published in the Journal of Fire Protection Engineering. These two in depth studies address and prove the very definite concern of Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) corrosion after a gaseous HFC-227ea fire suppression system is used in computer and other electronic environments.

The first published study by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in 2004 showed that HFC-227ea, a gaseous fire suppressant, a replacement for Halon 1301, produced at least 5 to 10 times more HF than Halon 1301 under similar fire conditions, however, there was no information available on the amount of thermal decomposition products generated during fire suppression with halocarbon agents in an electronic facility.

The Corrosion of Electronic Components by Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) paper published in 2008 describes in detail the HF corrosion and provides the test results showing the corrosion damage due to HF. While HFC-227ea is a very good fire suppression system, the HFC-227ea thermal decomposition byproduct, Hydrogen Fluoride, would cause serious and expensive short and long term extensive corrosion damage by the condensed Hydrofluoric acid. Hydrogen Fluoride corrosion severely affects computers, servers, switching circuits, and other electronics, connectors and electromechanical devices.

To prevent corrosion caused by Hydrogen Fluoride, as well as other chemicals, acids, salts, and water which can be deposited during the activation of fire suppression systems or rapid humidity changes, all the electrical and electronic hardware, boards and connectors should be sprayed or coated with SuperCORR A, an ultra-thin film lubricant and corrosion preventive compound that is non-hardening and will not crack. SuperCORR A  is a water displacing non-flammable compound that will not interfere with any type of electronics or avionics and prevents corrosion.

While a fire suppression system utilizing HFE-227ea will put out the fire, SuperCORR A will protect and prevent damage to the electronics or avionics caused by exposure to the Hydrogen Fluoride produced as a byproduct during the fire. SuperCORR A Mil-L-87177, is also effective in preventing damaging corrosion by atmospheric gases such as Sulfur dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), Ammonia (NH3), and Chlorine based gases (CL2) in Class III mixed gas tests and fresh or salt water systems.

Maintenance engineers please help us to improve our product for you.

Corrosion Protection

SuperCORR A is the best lubricant with corrosion protective additives on the market and is widely used by the military and for industrial maintenance.

The website gives technical information and extensive user experiences in many areas.  Currently SuperCORR A is supplied for maintenance purposes in large 16oz aerosols which are very convenient and economical for use in factories, offices or maintenance areas  but are bulky for use by mobile service engineers where the cans need to be carried in tool kits.

SuperCORR A is such a useful tool for service engineers, displacing water and leaving a dry lubricating film which protects surfaces from corrosion under even the most extreme conditions that we are considering a smaller 3 or 5 oz pack which will be easier to carry and allow access in tight locations.

Tell us how you use SuperCORR A and let us have your views on whether a smaller can will make your  job easier.  We welcome your comments.

An ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Benjamin Franklin said that in 1736 and it is as true today as it was then.

One of the most important opportunities for savings today is the prevention of failures caused by corrosion. Corrosion leading to the repair of or the complete re-placement of failed parts or components, a pound of cure, which is preventable, equates to increased production costs and a decrease in the bottom line profits.

SuperCORR A is the ounce of prevention that will save your company money; man hour costs and parts in the re-pair or replacement of equipment that failed because of corrosion issues that are easily preventable.  Whether it’s an electrical connection that failed because of corrosion which caused a cooling pump to shut down that caused a bearing to overheat and burn out that brought an entire production line to a halt or it’s the floor of an airliner that was so corroded that the aircraft was grounded for extensive repairs, corrosion is a serious and a very expensive problem. A problem that is preventable.

An ultra thin-film lubricant with corrosion preventative compounds that displaces water, SuperCORR A has been extensively tested on metals and electronics and has shown extremely good results in preventing corrosion.

The question to ask yourself is: What is the cost of NOT using SuperCORR A to prevent corrosion?

If you were able to say we are saving £100 a day by using SuperCORR A by not having a failure caused by corrosion would that be a good thing?  How about saving a £1000 a day? A saving that would directly influence the bottom line.

You have essentially two choices:

1). Being proactive about corrosion and doing something simple and very cost effective to prevent it,

2). Do nothing and take your chances that the cause and the associated costs of the next lost production time are not directly related to a preventable corrosion problem.

Being proactive about corrosion and doing something that is cost effective and protects the bottom line is nothing but a positive. Remember the cost of lost productivity is directly related to lost profits.

CORR-EX corrosion control solutions have the answer to corrosion prevention for all industries and utilities.

See how SuperCORR A can save money and time changing light bulbs

Question – How many engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?

Answer – One,
but they’ll spend three hours checking it for alignment and leaks.

There are thousands of jokes on this theme but anywhere, factories, offices, warehouses, supermarkets, sports stadiums, railway stations, ocean liners, road lighting and other applications where thousands of light fittings are installed it can be a major maintenance expense rather than a joke.

SuperCORR A is a corrosion preventative dry lubricant aerosol which rejects water and protects the bulb socket and fitting and prevents sticking. This makes bulb changing easy and quick.

SuperCorr A defeats increasing gold prices for connector manufacture

Thinner plating caused problems with increased corrosion on USB connectors as gold coating thickness decreased with escalating gold prices.

A major company in the U.S. found that by using SuperCORR A it was able to prevent galling corrosion due to vibration on printed circuit leads and connectors.

They found that because of the advances in gold plating technology the plating thickness was being reduced over the base substrate metal of the connectors. The thickness of the gold plating became thinner and thinner over time. This thinner coating saved a lot of money as gold was and is becoming increasingly expensive. However the resulting reduced thickness of gold plating also resulted in failures caused by corrosion. Minute irregularities in the surface of the connectors base metal caused irregular or uneven wear of the connector causing the “high spots” on the connector to wear through the gold plating.

Using SuperCORR A prevented or delayed the corrosion and subsequent failures. However it must be recognized that
SuperCORR A is a lubricant with corrosion preventive compounds, and as is the case with all “lubricants” they will be worn off over time. Having said that, the Company also had SuperCORR A tested 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 at all. In fact they commented that the USB connector looked as good as new.

Corrosion Control

Corrosion is a serious problem for industry and governments worldwide.  Most people associate corrosion 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 salt water as well as water vapor. They will also corrode when they come in contact with chemicals, liquid acids as well as acidic vapors, salts and bases, and bacteria.

Read our article “Corrosion Control Solutions – A Solution To A Costly Problem” for more information about the enormity of the costs involved in failing to prevent corrosion.
