FERROCOTE® 5856 BF T1

CASE STUDY – CORROSION PREVENTIVE

 

CHALLENGES


 

A major producer of bearings wanted to accomplish the following at one of its manufacturing sites:

  • Improve long-term corrosion protection
  • Eliminate an aqueous process cleaning step
  • Reduce manufacturing costs

The bearing producer was using an aqueous process cleaner, followed by heavy oil-based, long-term corrosion preventive oil.  Quaker recommended introducing FERROCOTE® 5856 BF T1, a final corrosion preventive to:

  • Eliminate the process cleaner and cleaning step
  • Make the handling process easier by replacing the heavy oil with the corrosion preventive
  • Lower application costs

 

THE SOLUTION


 

The use of FERROCOTE® 5856 BF T1 resulted in:

  • Elimination of process cleaning solution, a savings of $75,000/yr
  • 20% overall corrosion preventive cost reduction
  • Elimination of the cleaning process transfer step, reducing labor costs by 15%
  • Improved process control resulting in 1.5% fewer part rejections
