Vapour Phase Corrosion Emitters Explained

Vapour phase corrosion emitters are small, specialised devices designed to provide corrosion protection for metal components and parts which are enclosed in non-ventilated control boxes. The Vapour phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI) emits vapours that form a monomolecular protective coating on internal metal surfaces. This coating protects critical, complex and expensive electronic equipment from corrosion initiation […]
