Corrosion Prevention in Electronics and Electrical Equipment – ElectriCorr®
Corrosion prevention in electronics and electric equipment is essential because the consequences are cost-intensive. Once expensive machines get corroded, they become unfit for use, forcing you to buy new ones.
Cortec Corporation has developed two outstanding corrosion preventive solutions – the ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 electrical contact cleaner and 239.
Corrosion Prevention and Protection – ElectriCorr® VpCI-238 and 239
These two corrosion prevention and protection solutions come in small spray cans. Both ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239 contain VpCI Vapour Phase Corrosion Inhibitors that helps clean and protect electronic parts from corrosion. The best part about 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 because 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. It would be best for you to use ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 for light indoor removal and corrosion prevention on electronics and electrical enclosures.
On the other hand, it would be best to use the ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-239 for heavy outdoor removal and corrosion prevention on both electronics and electrical enclosures.
How Effective is the ElectriCorr® in Corrosion Prevention and Protection?
Both ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239 have unmatched performance when it comes to corrosion prevention and protection. Consider the following real-life examples of how effective ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239 are;
● Wastewater Treatment Plant
Wastewater treatment produces a lot of corrosive gases, which end up damaging HMI panels and eventually the 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® plastic cup, there was no need to replace these expensive machines. The wastewater treatment company wanted to do away with corrosion, so they added a VpCI®-111 emitter as well.
In other words, ElectriCorr VpCI®-239, Corrosorber®, and VpCI®-111 emitters helped do away with cost-intensive repairs and acquisition of new HMI modules. Remember, 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 did away with all 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.
We must as a side note also mention VpCI 248 circuit board protective coating if you are dealing with specific component parts.
Here’s the deal:
Both ElectriCorr VpCI®-238 and 239 are highly effective if used properly. They can help you clear any corrosion in electronics’ motherboards and electricals.
Corrosion Prevention in New Electrical and Electronic Motherboards
Most electronics manufacturers get concerned 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 can get to the end user in mint 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 getting rusty again.
Implement Corrosion Protection the Right Way
ElectriCorr VpCI®-238 and 239 ElectriCorr™ VpCI®-238 and 239 have unmatched performance. In addition, ElectriCorr VpCI®-238 and 239 usages go beyond electrical and electronics corrosion prevention.
