Corrosion Prevention Moisture Barrier Bags

Corrosion Prevention Moisture Barrier Bags

As the economy has slowed over the last few years, companies have been forced to lay off workers and shut down factories, plants and manufacturing facilities. This has lead to an upsurge in the need for properly securing and preserving costly equipment and machinery while it is dormant. If they don’t take safeguarding precautions now, companies face the expensive task of refurbishing and/or replacing equipment when the time comes to produce.

While working with several companies facing plant shutdowns, Protective Packaging Corporation has developed a range of corrosion prevention services tailored to meet large-scale corrosion prevention demands. These services include site analysis, corrosion assessment, preservation recommendations, training and on-site packaging. “Executives are realizing that they can preserve equipment now for a fraction of the cost of refurbishing or replacing it in the future,” commented Protective Packaging Corporation President Steve Hanna.

A case in point: A large gas plant in South America shut down due to economic pressures and top-level management was unaware of the corrosive decay that had set in over a relatively short period of time. When it came to light, Protective Packaging dispatched a team of corrosion prevention professionals to evaluate the situation and help the company implement a solution.

The Protective Packaging team conducted an extensive inventory of parts, testing the corrosion levels throughout the facility, and then implemented an overall corrosion prevention plan. Once the review was complete, the team documented preservation recommendations by type of metal, location, environmental conditions and estimated length of storage time. Protective Packaging’s solutions included a wide range of moisture barrier materials (polyethylene/foil films), various sizes of desiccants to absorb any remaining moisture within the barrier bags, volatile corrosion inhibitors to protect outside metals from corrosion, and corrosion prevention expertise; the know-how to use which materials in specific situations, and where to use them. The team was able to train the workers so that they could continue to develop their overall corrosion prevention processes for long-term success.

The customer was able to dramatically reduce costs of repairing or replacing parts and machinery at the facility due to corrosion, weathering, UV damage, pest contamination or other debris build-up. “We would normally have to replace the entire engine, but now can rely on the protective packaging to prevent decay on our machines,” said the plant’s quality assurance supervisor.

Protective Packaging spent four days training workers to recognize where protection is needed and how to apply it. “We are willing to travel the world to educate the facilities that are shutting down, either long-term or until a recovery begins, on how they can save millions of dollars by simply understanding the methods of long-term protection. There are so many alternatives to crating everything and placing them in a temperature-controlled warehouse,” noted Hanna.

Corrosion-resistant Dosing Valve Market -
The global corrosion-resistant dosing valve market is prognosticated to gain support from a high preference over solenoid valves in classic chemical dosing applications. There could be two rational reasons why corrosion-resistant dosing valve is more of a preferred option than solenoid valve. First of all, new products introduced in the market such as GF Piping Systems’ 604/605 dosing valve have a minimal count of metal parts, which make them easy
Corrosion Monitoring Market Opportunities upto 2024
Corrosion is an electrochemical process that transforms metals and alloys into oxides, hydroxides, and aqueous salts. In the corrosion process, there are generally two types of reactions that take place. The first is the anodic reaction, in which reaction metal atoms are ionized and pass into solutions, leaving their electrons in the original metal. In the second process, the cathodic reaction, reduction takes place and metals are degraded by chemical
