Corrosion Inhibitors Protect Your Air Conditioning Equipment In West Palm Beach
Air conditioning systems in coastal regions like West Palm Beach don't last as long as they should due to corrosion. In fact, corrosion is responsible for about 40% of industrial equipment failures.
The process is called galvanic corrosion, or electrolysis. Electrolysis is a chemical decomposition which occurs when an electric current is passed through a liquid or solution that contains ions.
Salt is an ionic compound, so when the moist salt air is near an electrically powered machine made of metal, the weakest metal present will start to corrode.
The fins of an outside air conditioning condenser are made of aluminum and are constantly exposed to the moist salt air in our climate. They become pitted and damaged by corrosion. They start to block the air flow to the system, causing early failure. The energy efficiency of the system is also affected along the way.
The corrosion problem starts as soon as an air conditioning system is installed in West Palm Beach. Fortunately, corrosion inhibitors can be installed on the fins to help avoid early replacement of the air conditioning system.
How Corrosion Inhibitors Extend The Life Of Your West Palm Beach Air Conditioner
Corrosion inhibitors are the most effective and economical way to control corrosion on your air conditioning fins. They can add years to the life of your outdoor air conditioning equipment.
The corrosion inhibitors are made of zinc which is a weaker metal element than aluminum. Since corrosion occurs on the weakest metal first, the inhibitors corrode instead of the aluminum fins and other metals of your air conditioning system.
