Corrosion is an important consideration during the design stage and ongoing maintenance of mechanical equipment. Engineers need to consider the types of material used within the design to ensure they are compatible with the environment in which they are to be installed. The choice or oversight in having the wrong material for the application can result in costly downtime, and wasted resources. Hose reels are manufactured in various types of materials to provide an appropriate solution for the application. Far too often lack of consideration in the choice of hose reel results in poor function and premature failure.
What is corrosion?
Corrosion is the process whereby metals erode because of chemical reactions. Corrosion occurs whenever a liquid or a gas reacts with the surface of a material. Salts, acids, and alkaline have a dramatic effect on various metals and are extremely common throughout industry and domestically.
How to prevent corrosion?
Corrosion is prevented or minimized in several ways. One common form of preventing corrosion is through surface coating. The protective coating forms a barrier between the metal's surface and the environment. Common methods of surface protection include:
Through the application of paint, powder coat.
Through the deposition or coating in a thin layer of an alternate corrosion-resistant metal.
For instance, you can stop iron from rusting by depositing a small layer of nickel, zinc.
