About us

Lake Engineering Solutions is a Division within Lake Chemicals and Minerals and offers turnkey services with Lake’s corrosion survey report pinpointing corrosion locations, selecting products and documenting corrosion control procedures. Lake will apply the solution or will supervise site activities. Lake’s corrosion training courses address practical solutions to corrosion for industrial processes, plant and infrastructure. Our team of Corrosion and Preservation Engineers have experience across many industries and we provide practical and economic solutions for a wide range of corrosion and related problems. 

Corrosion happens. Halt corrosion by treating the route cause with the correct product choice under supervised application. Lake has experience from practical installations in different ambient conditions important to you. Cortec’s corrosion-stopping-knowledge-network accessed and applied by Lake Engineering Solutions, is your essential resource.   

Cost control is a key benefit. Water-based VpCl®s are more economical than conventional oil-based rust preventives. Efficient application results in labour savings. Improved health, safety and pollution control. No need to remove VpCI® protection prior to use, eliminating extra processing steps. VpCI® treatments virtually eliminate economic loss due to rust, speckling, staining and other forms of corrosion. Eliminate claims and returns while improving the quality of your product. As a result, your processing becomes more streamlined, allowing for more efficient operation.

I have to say that I was really impressed by the professional attitude and cooperation exhibited by your company. The deployment of the chemical was completed within the anticipated timescale and without incident.
You had a very arduous task to complete; particularly transferring the chemicals by hand to the upper levels of the boiler in what was probably the warmest week of the year so far and just got on and did it without complaint!
I have conveyed the same message to our client team and should the need arise for preservation of the next retired HRSG in 2020, I will be in contact to seek your services.

“All moulders know that an effective mould cooling system is key to high quality mouldings produced with consistently low cycle times. At Labone we are making technically demanding mouldings in competitive markets so performance is important. When using water cooling / heating, Inhibitors are essential to reduce the build-up of deposits from lime-scale and corrosion to preserve mould and heater life and reduce the time spent on cleaning both. However traditional glycols mixes are toxic and present a risk to personnel and a disposal issue. Also due to their high levels of concentrations (30-40% recommended) there is a significant cost associated with these materials.

Dean at Lake Engineering Solutions suggested changing to Cortec VpCI 649BD. It addresses all the environmental issues with no loss of performance and as it is designed to be used much lower concentration levels it’s saved Labone money. I wish we’d used it years ago.”
