VCI Technology To Preserve Mining Industry Assets From Rust - powered by Nano-VpCI®
Clean Protect and Preserve Cycle
Cortec’s Clean, Protect, Preserve Cycle for the Off-Road and Mining
industries begins with the quality and safety check of parts. To
achieve the very highest standards in corrosion protection, these
parts and its performance are analyzed, and the question of quality
is addressed by Cortec® at every stage. Repeated checks are made
and tests are applied to ensure that every product meets the strictest standards on quality.
Parts are evaluated for corrosion based on the length of its storage,
damage caused, the cost, sensitivity of the part, and the packaging
path is determined. The parts are then cleaned; If necessary, existing
corrosion is removed. The product is dipped, sprayed, or brushed if
required (without being given time to dry), and then neutralized with
Cortec’s environmentally friendly products.
Once primary protection is reached through cleaning the parts;
packaging, coating, or both can be utilized to further the corrosion
protection process. This can be done through Cortec’s packaging,
coatings, bags, emitters, MRO sprays, or Milcorr for crate replacement. The length of storage and speed should be assessed to
determine the best path to provide 1 to 5+ year solutions.
Finally the product is preserved, thus reducing labor costs and
increasing efficiency. The Clean, Protect, Preserve Cycle helps to
keep quality, safe parts in great working condition.
The different types of Off-Road Equipment and Mining Machinery experience different challanges - everything from impact and abrasion
to immersion and exposure to chemicals and weather. Cortec’s full line of degreasers, depainters, and rust/oxide removers can eliminate
more costly and dimension changing processes like sand blasting, bead blasting, and acid dipping. By incorporating VpCI® products you
can integrate this cleaning directly into your existing manufacturing processes.
