Using Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors to Protect Large Commercial Engines

Corrosion is a plight faced by everyone who works with metals. Its impact on the US economy has been documented at about 4% of the gross national product. It has also been estimated that about one third of the corrosion damage could be avoided. Such was the challenge in the case of large commercial engines. Large commercial engines were being stored outside, wrapped with stretch film. The engines developed corrosion and had to be completely overhauled. The resulting solution needed to be a combination of custom fitting, strong, and durable materials combined with Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors (VCI's). Volatile Corrosion Inhibitors (sometimes referred to as vapor corrosion inhibitors) provide excellent protection for metal surfaces and can prevent corrosion for many years. VCIs are chemicals used directly on the product that needs to be protected. A custom made barrier bag was designed to fit over the engine but also fit inside the cradle holding the engine. The corrosion was totally eliminated, resulting in an annual savings in labor costs alone of $250,000.
