Unique Process Reduces Effects of Flood Damage


Marine Consultants, Inc. (USA), and their R.C.P. process provide a technology capableof minimizing the highly corrosive damages resulting from machinery and electrical equipment being subjected to water immersion or other exposure to moisture. The R.C.P. process is designed to reduce losses due to salt or fresh water exposure of metals and/or electrical equipment as a result of flooding, sinking, fire fighting or other exposures to moisture.

In order to minimize the corrosion damage, it is necessary to take preventative action as soon as practically possible after the damage or incident of exposure having taken place. The process is based on the application of multiple action organic compounds which displace water as well as provide a film which isolates the damaged equipment from exposure to moisture and oxygen, the two most common elements causing rust and corrosion.

Small electric motors and equipment are typically removed and immersed in chemicals, dried, reinstalled, and tested in operation, while larger motors, generators, controllers, starters, switchboards, etc. are rinsed with fresh water, drained, treated with chemicals, and allowed to stand while moisture is being displaced. The equipment is dried as necessary, then tested in operation.

Diesel engines, reduction gears, and other rotating equipment are treated by both spraying chemicals on the exposed surfaces, and by pumping it through the lubricating oil and cooling oil systems.
