For Oil & Gas companies experiencing downtimes in this burning summer can lead to very expensive metal loss as corrosion usually tends to accelerate with increasing temperatures. Not only will the rising humidity in this hot summer air make it worse but also the high presence of chloride ions in the humid air can have a detrimental effect on metals leading to the deterioration of your idle equipment, machinery, and infrastructure. This is not only a safety hazard but also expensive to replace.
With Cortec® Middle East’s VpCI® Corrosion Protection Technology, you can be assured of an effective, zero defect, and low-cost preservation of all your static, rotating, and electrical equipment. Cortec® asset preservation solutions use VCI Technology-powered surface coatings, cleaning products, additives for lubricants and process liquids, powders, and liquids for fogging of large spaces, as well as films for total encapsulation.
Let’s look at some of the Packaging Products proven to be most beneficial for equipment preservation in the Oil & Gas industry.
Cortec® VpCI® Papers are multi-metal, thus eliminating the need to use different types of papers to store different metals. They are made of the highest quality neutral paper to prevent package contamination. There is no need for elaborate chemical concentrations or application systems as these Papers are ready-to-use without surface preparation or cleaning of any kind.
The multi-metal, cost-effective, and easy-to-use Cortec® VpCI® Films ensure that your equipment parts are corrosion-free and ready for immediate use. Once you wrap or shroud your equipment in the VpCI® Films, a self-replenishing vapor will continuously emit from it to protect the equipment from variations in temperature and humidity. Choose from our various features like heat sealable, UV stabilized, flame retardant, etc., as per your equipment needs.
VpCI® Foams & Fabrics
Cortec® VpCI® Foams & Fabrics is a multi-metal desiccant and lightweight in nature and thus beneficial for lower cost handling, transport, and storage. It can be easily applied and be used either on its own in enclosed cabinets and cavities, or it can be used along with VpCI® Films for large void air spaces. It is available with static dissipative properties in custom sizes and shapes.
VpCI® Cushioning is used for sensitive equipment as it provides exceptional shock protection. They have the advantage of being customizable to fit almost any packaging requirement. Their VpCI® vapors do not interfere with subsequent processing such as painting or welding as they have no tangible effects on materials like plastics, optics, or elastomers.
Cortec ® VpCI ® Inserts are easy-to-implement with a simple, dosage-specific application. They help protect all metals by adsorbing VpCI® vapors everywhere, including recessed areas. As they replenish themselves regardless of how many times the package is opened, they can be used as the primary or complementary corrosion control system in almost every packaging system, corrugated boxes or zipper closure bags.
