In the aftermath of a disaster, such as a flood or fire, it can be easy to forget some of the ‘unseen’ damage caused. Corrosion of mechanical and electronic equipment can be costly and prevent a business from recovering as quickly as possible. Taking quick action to limit the damage caused by corrosion is key. That’s where BELFOR comes in.
What Is Corrosion Control?
Mechanical, electrical, or electronic equipment may seem resistant to contamination and corrosion, but immediate attention and help are necessary after an incident. Smoke, soot, acid, and water are common sources of contamination. Corrosive, conductive, and abrasive deposits (sludge) can severely impact the functionality, reliability, and service life of any equipment.
Corrosion control refers to the prevention of deterioration of materials through the chemical reaction that occurs from a change in the environment, material, or if a barrier has been placed between the material and its normal environment.
Corrosion control is of particular concern when water or fire has affected an area. These two elements both leave behind harmful by-products and create humid conditions that cause damage to equipment and electronics. Quick and effective corrosion control measures are needed to aid the successful recovery of the affected area.
