application Multivoid aluminium tubing for AC Condensers

Corrosion of heat exchangers for automotive air conditioning units can be a major problem. The unit is often located near the front grille of the vehicle and hence is exposed to a severely corrosive environment, with road salts, rain and high temperatures all contributing to high corrosion rates. In order to reduce the rate of […]

application Railway coal wagons

100 tonne coal-carrying hopper wagons in New South Wales have been metal sprayed to protect against corrosive attack following the abrasive action of the coal loading and unloading processes. Corrosion protection Research into the problem determined a metal-sprayed zinc coating of 200 microns (0.008”) thickness was most suitable. The work was carried out at the […]
