ZERUST® VCI Solutions for Wastewater Corrosion Protection

ZERUST® corrosion inhibiting products are a cost-effective way to provide wastewater corrosion protection for electrical components and equipment from the destructive effects of corrosion, even in wastewater facilities with highly corrosive environments. For over 50 years, ZERUST’s proprietary vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) technology has been proven safe and effective for protecting sensitive metals. Furthermore, the cost and inconvenience of corrosion don’t have to be accepted. Now there is a solution with ZERUST®.

Reduce electronic equipment failures that lead to downtime due to corrosion with ZERUST® corrosion protection. ZERUST® protects even in electronic enclosures in corrosive atmospheres with high humidity, condensation, or traces of aggressive pollutants such as sulfides and chlorides found in wastewater treatment environments. ZERUST® corrosion inhibitor technologies work to combat these corrosion causes, even acid gases and moisture.

ZERUST® field engineers have extensively studied our product’s effectiveness in wastewater plant environments and can provide an analysis of compatibility using recognized test procedures.
