Prevent hydrogen sulphide corrosion in electrical and electronic equipment

WOKING, U.K. - Amzeal -- Corrosion costs both private and public sectors hundreds of billions a year to repair or replace electrical, electronics, or avionic components because of failures caused by corrosion.   Lost productivity and revenue caused by plant and equipment corrosion is a serious matter and there is no simple or single solution. However there are some very cost effective and proven ways to prevent corrosion and failures caused by corrosion and thereby reducing or eliminating associated costs and increasing safety which should be foremost in the mind set of any preventative maintenance programme.

Electrical and electronic equipment and components that are used in adverse environments, where corrosive gases such as hydrogen sulphide can be found, cause severe corrosion and the rapid deterioration of the electronic components and equipment including connectors and switches used in these and other work environments.   Preventing hydrogen sulphide (H2S) corrosion in electrical and electronic equipment involves a combination of preventive measures and material selection. Here are some steps to mitigate H2S corrosion:

Protective Coatings:
One effective corrosion preventative measure is to apply SuperCORR A advanced lubricant and corrosion inhibiting compound. It will help prevent H2S corrosion in electrical and electronic equipment, ensuring their longevity and reliability in environments where H2S exposure is a concern.

Material Selection:
Choose materials that are resistant to H2S corrosion - stainless steel, nickel alloys, and certain plastics are less susceptible to corrosion by H2S compared to carbon steel.

Enclosures, Sealing and Ventilation:
Seal electrical and electronic equipment and cables in airtight enclosures to prevent H2S exposure.

Monitoring and maintenance:
Regularly monitor H2S levels in the environment where the equipment is installed.

Design Considerations:
Consider the design of the equipment and its surroundings to minimize the likelihood of H2S exposure.

Education and Training:
Provide education and training to personnel working with the equipment on the risks of H2S corrosion and the importance of preventive measures.

Emergency Response Plan:
Develop an emergency response plan in case of H2S exposure or equipment failure due to corrosion.
