Corrosion prevention in electronics and electric equipment is essential as the consequences are cost intensive. Corrosion on expensive machinery can make machinery unfit for use with the only option being replacement parts or machinery.
Cortec Corporation has developed two outstanding corrosion preventive solutions – the ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239 electrical contact cleaner.
Corrosion Prevention and Protection – ElectriCorr® VpCI-238 and 239
These two corrosion prevention and protection solutions come in easy-to-use small spray cans.
Both ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239 contain VpCI Vapour Phase Corrosion Inhibitors that help clean and protect electronic parts from corrosion. The advantage using these two multifunctional solutions is that they do not change the conductivity of the electronics and are non-sticky.
In addition, both ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239 are better than VpCI emitters as they are usable in both open and closed places.
VpCI emitters work best in enclosed scenarios. However, VpCI emitters can complement ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239 to enhance corrosion protection.
ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 is best suited to light indoor removal and corrosion prevention on electronics and electrical enclosures.
Whilst ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-239 is more suited to heavy outdoor removal and corrosion prevention on both electronics and electrical enclosures.
Corrosion Prevention In Electronics?
ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239 have unmatched performance in corrosion prevention and protection.
Please see the following examples of the effectiveness of ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239:
● Wastewater Treatment Plant
Wastewater treatment produces a lot of corrosive gases, which can end up damaging HMI panels and eventually entire HMI machines. A single HMI unit can range from $15,000 to $40,000. In addition, frequent repairs for maintenance increase the cost of operating these critical machines.
After lightly spraying ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-239 and complementing it with a Corrosorber®, there was no need to replace these expensive machines. The wastewater treatment company wanted to stop corrosion, therefore a VpCI®-111 emitter was added in addition.
ElectriCorr VpCI®-239, Corrosorber®, and VpCI®-111 emitters helped do away with cost-intensive repairs and acquisition of new HMI modules.
The example above demonstrates that ElectriCorr VpCI®-239 is ideal for outdoor use.
● Marine Company
A marine electrical and electronic maintenance company faced a considerable challenge – removing existing corrosion from a boat’s electronic motherboards.
Since the work was mostly done inside the boat, the marine company opted to use the ElectriCorr VpCI®-238.
This corrosion cleaner removed the corrosion on the boat’s important electronic motherboards, such as the radar and plotters. In addition to clearing corrosion, the ElectriCorr VpCI®-238 also added a protective layer for future corrosion prevention and reduced maintenance costs.
After a month, there was no visible corrosion on the boat’s electronic motherboards, proving the effectiveness of ElectriCorr VpCI®-238.
In addition, VpCI 248 circuit board protective coating was also used and if you are dealing with specific component parts is an ideal complementary product
Both ElectriCorr VpCI®-238 and 239 are highly effective if used properly. They can help clear any corrosion in electronics’, motherboards and electricals.
Corrosion Prevention in New Electrical and Electronic Motherboards
Most electronics manufacturers have concerns about whether their electronic products will reach the end user without any corrosion during shipping. ElectriCorr VpCI®-238 or 239 can help safeguard electronics’ motherboards so they get to the end user in excellent condition.
ElectriCorr VpCI® Corrosion Prevention Hidden Advantage
One of the most outstanding advantages of using ElectriCorr VpCI® is that its usage goes beyond electrical and electronics corrosion prevention. ElectriCorr VpCI®-239 was recently used to prevent a boat’s turbine from rusting after the rust was cleaned.
The boat was docked in waters with high chloride concentrations. No OEM corrosion prevention products could withstand that level of chloride concentration. However, applying ElectriCorr VpCI®-239 protected the turbine from corroding again.
Implement Corrosion Protection the Right Way
Both ElectriCorr VpCI®-238 and ElectriCorr™ VpCI®– 239 have unmatched performance. In addition, ElectriCorr VpCI®-238 and 239 usages, goes beyond electrical and electronics corrosion prevention.
