Fertilizer and Corrosion Posted on 19 Jun 09:21

When I was working as a consulting engineer in the field writing a due diligence report for a property that was occupied by a lawn fertilizer company, I noticed severe corrosion damage on many areas of the property.  I particularly noticed severe corrosion to lighting panels, conduits, and metal overhead doors.

When looking further up at the lighting fixtures, I noticed corrosion attacking the overhead structural beams. This type of damage results in a costly rebuild of the interior space and could have been prevented by application of an appropriate rust inhibitor, like Corrosion Block. This is a big situation with many companies, and especially wind farms, and any other useful utility/business that occupies space previously used by fertilizer companies.

With corrosion damage reaching one trillion dollars a year in the United States alone, it makes perfect sense to prevent corrosion damage early on in lieu of paying the cost of repair and or replacement.

And keep in mind, for many other applications like PC boards, switchgears, and electrical harnesses, Corrosion Block Liquid is the perfect corrosion inhibitor.  It has a 40KV dielectric strength and can be used on any high voltage system.


Air Conditioning Corrosion Posted on 13 Jun 12:35

The Problem

Coastal regions near seawater tend to be highly corrosive environments. Expensive equipment is constantly exposed to both direct saltwater and the humid sea breeze. Corrosion starts when moisture penetrates the base metal and causes a dielectric reaction. This reaction acts like a battery, producing at first a white haze of oxidation and then later severe pitting.

For air conditioning units in particular, corrosion attacks the aluminum condenser fins and electrical connections. Mounting hardware and bolts are also a common issue.

Worried about application to electricals, such as 208V or 440V? Corrosion Block has a dielectric strength of 40 KV, which means you can apply it liberally without fear.

Apply Corrosion Block while performing a customer's annual inspection to prevent costly damage. Newly installed units are also ideal targets to protect before corrosion ever begins. Our clean, clear fluid can be applied with an aerosal spray or in larger quantities with a pump.

Applying Corrosion Block not only stops existing corrosion, but also prevent any corrosion in the future. A coating typically lasts 6 to 12 months depending on your environment.
