Problem

A water treatment plant wanted to find a corrosion inhibiting solution to protect electrical components and control panels at their facility. With the extreme corrosive environment at their facility, they found themselves replacing controllers that were no longer operational due to corrosion every year. Not only are these controllers expensive, but the cost from the downtime while these controllers were being replaced was becoming a very costly expense for the plant.

Solution

Zerust’s technical service team visited the plant to analyze the environment, and review the project scope. After the inspection, they conducted a side by side test (below) on copper panels at the lab to simulate the environment of the plant’s control room. The panel protected by the Zerust® ActivPak® had almost no change, while the unprotected panel corroded severely after 48 hours. Further testing showed the protected panel had no visible corrosion for over a month.
