FERROCOTE ® 118 DC

CASE STUDY − CORROSION PREVENTIVE

 

CHALLENGES


 

A major producer of diesel engines was experiencing:

  • Severe rusting of cast iron engine heads during production
  • Additional processing step to remove rust and scale prior to assembly steps

Quaker recommended introducing FERROCOTE ® 118 DC, a water-soluble, interim corrosion preventive, to help eliminate rejects due
to rust and scale.

 

THE SOLUTION


 

The use of FERROCOTE ® 118 DC resulted in:

  • Reduction of 250 heads per day being rejected for rust (1500 total production) to an average of one
  • Virtual elimination of the rust removal processing step resulting in decreased chemical usage and labor costs
  • Elimination of foam and bacterial growth in the application system
  • System life increase of 14%
  • Elimination of undesirable amine compounds
