Drive out corrosion
25 January 2013
Aquasolv Spray Wash Cleaner-VCI (Aqua 10VCI) from Mykal is helping a large Midlands-based engineering company improve cleaning levels and overcome corrosion problems arising between the manufacture and assembly of cast
The components are machined and then cleaned in a hot aqueous spray system, prior to being dispatched.
Because the components are shipped dry with limited corrosion protection, rusting had occurred in the past. This resulted in parts being returned for reworking which was both expensive and detrimental to customer relations.
Factory trials were run with Spray Wash Cleaner-VCI (Aqua 10VCI) at a concentration of 5%, the results of which proved a high level of cleanliness and three times the level of corrosion protection offered by an existing product, allowing storage of components for up to six weeks.
