Protecting your plant through COVID-19Member News
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit manufacturers in an unexpected and unprecedented way. For the first time in modern manufacturing history, demand, supply and workforce availability are affected globally at the same time. As a result, many companies have had to make the tough decision to temporarily shut down manufacturing activity.
During this period of shutdown, companies are experiencing plant and component corrosion caused by ambient oxygen and water vapour which has led to expensive maintenance or complete breakdown of inactive machinery. To help prevent these situations and get you straight back up and running speedily, corrosion protection is key.
Lake Engineering Solutions unique high-performance Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI), is a proven technology that simplifies corrosion protection and is ideal for keeping enclosed void spaces (e.g., packages, equipment internals, or structural metal cavities) and components corrosion-free.
VCI technology works to create a protective environment within each package or enclosure where it is applied. VCIs delivered from liquids, powders, or packaging materials travel through the air to form an invisible protective shield on metal surfaces in the enclosed space. This VCI shield does not alter metal properties. Instead, it blocks the ability of oxygen, moisture, and other corrosive elements to attack the metal surface and make it corrode. After the metal part is taken out of the package or enclosed space, the VCIs dissipate harmlessly into the surrounding environment, and the metal components, machinery, or products are ready for immediate use, no cleaning or degreasing required.
