Simple steps to avoid corrosion in the manufacturing plant
As we already know, corrosion is a serious problem that can lead to the loss of the company if no serious actions are taken to minimize its occurence. For manufacturing company corrosion prevention can be started from within the company itself which is for the employee to take a measurable amount of protection during the company’s operation. For instance, simple thing like wearing gloves may avoid any rust to the metal parts because acids, oils and contaminants on human hands can cause and accelerate corrosion.
Other things like covering metal parts with VCI paper or VCI poly bags to protect them from oxygen and other contaminants will reduce the any chance of corrosion because by leaving those metal parts uncovered and unprotected while they are not used will leave those parts susceptible to rust and corrosion. Also, the usage of VCI paper must be sufficient in order to protect the metal part. The formule is to use at least 1 square foot of VCI paper or VCI poly for every 1-3 square feet of metal surface. Or to use at least one square foot of VCI for every cubic foot of void space.
