VCI Powder

Description

VCI Powders are designed to provide interior metal surfaces of enclosed systems with corrosion protection. Often used for:

  • Lay-up, preservation and mothball applications to protect internal cavities and recesses.
  • Preserving of equipment that requires hydrostatic testing before shipping and storage.
  • In a mothballed facility, the VCI powder keeps machinery in working conditions, so that production can be restored quickly whenever needed.

Water-soluble and silica-free, the VCI powders are specially designed to protect the interior metal surfaces of enclosed systems such as:

  • Boilers
  • Turbines
  • Heat exchangers
  • Compressors
  • Tubes, pipes
  • Power generation equipment
  • Mining equipment
  • Drilling equipment

Apply VCI powders by dusting, sprinkling or fogging into enclosed space with a low-pressure air hose, or dissolve in water.

Safe and environmentally friendly, our VCI powders are free from phosphates, heavy metals or nitrates.

Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1000SF

Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1000 SF is designed to protect ferrous metals from corrosion causing elements. Silica-free and water-soluble, the 1000SF protects equipment during storage, lay-up and hydrostatic testing. Available in two different forms:

  • Nox-Rust 1000SF Loose Powder

Apply the powder by fogging, dusting or dissolving it in water to protect metal surfaces. The 1000SF does not require any form of removal, before the restart of the protected equipment. Sold in 5-lb & 25-lb boxes.

  • Nox-Rust 1000SF Pouch Emitter

Each 8″ x 11″ pouch contains Nox-Rust 1000SF powder, capable of protecting up to 900 cubic feet of enclosed space. Place the powder inside boilers, tanks, void spaces inside vessels, turbines and stream or condensate pipelines.

Upon application, the breather polyethylene sealed bag then diffuses slowly, protecting ferrous metals of equipment during inactivity, storage, or lay-up over a long duration of time.

Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1000SFG

A finely grounded version of the 1000SF, the 1000SFG is also designed to protect ferrous metals from corrosion causing applications. They are used in applications where a fine powder is needed.

Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1010SFG

Silica-free and water-soluble, the Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1010SFG is a finely ground powder, ideal for ferrous metals. Also compatible with copper, brass and galvanized steel, the 1010SFG can be applied either wet or dry. It does not require removal before the restart/ usage of equipment.

Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1015

Water-soluble & silica-free, the Nox-Rust VCI Powder 1015 protects ferrous metals in equipment during storage, lay-up and hydrostatic testing.

Also available in:

  • Nox-Rust 1015 Pouch Emitter

Nox-Rust 1015 Pouch Emitter is capable of protecting up to 15 cubic feet of exposed metals inside an enclosure. Each pouch emitter eliminates the need to fog or spray powders when such method of applications are not ideal or not possible.

 

 

Key Features

Applications

There are two ways to apply VCI Powder as a coating, wet or dry application.

For dry application, the anti-corrosion powder can be applied by dusting, fogging or sprinkling. The powder can later be removed by compressed air or water.

For wet application, mix with water and then apply the mixture by either spraying, brushing or dipping the equipment directly into it.

can be used in:

  • Tubular structures, pipes and vessels.
  • Internal surfaces of compressors, turbines, engines,tanks, boilers, heat exchangers.
  • Equipment protection after hydrostatic testing.
  • Parts, components and completed assemblies during
  • Shipping and storage.
