Stop corrosion and rescue
Fires or floods have consequences that are often visible only some time after the event. Fires and floods trigger or affect the degradation and corrosion of the materials. per works to prevent these potential damages from becoming effective. It is crucial to act quickly so to obtain the best result from dehumidification and stop corrosion interventions.
Rescue activities are covered by insurances as they are part of the duties of the insured, under Italian Civil Law Code.
Healthy environments are characterized by precise “thermohygrometric” conditions, which are specific humidity and heat values. A sudden change in these conditions always damages materials, especially organic ones that absorb humidity very easily. Likewise, metal parts that compose electrical and electronic machinery are affected by temperature or humidity leaps.
Humidity works as a catalyzer which speeds and improves chemical reactions responsible for material degradation, and enhances microbe proliferation that results in molds and foul smells.
This is why it is important to carry out rescue actions to slow down corrosion and decomposition processes provoked by contaminants and water, and to reestablish the thermohygrometric conditions of the environment as soon as possible.
A variation in normal temperature and humidity condition due to an environmental stress like a fire, a flood or a natural phenomenon, affects heavily the conservation status of metals.
In the industrial environment, this means jeopardizing machinery and equipment. As a matter of fact, when relative humidity exceeds 50%, metal corrosion speed increases exponentially. Moreover, the combustion of plastic materials produces gases that, in combination with water, develop highly corrosive acids. Humidity accelerates and enhances this phenomenon.
Therefore, under the term stop corrosion we indicate all of per‘s renowned activities to inhibit acid formation and interrupt or limit metal corrosion.
Rescue through dehumidification is obtained by creating a dry-air micro climate that brings the environment and the goods involved back to their normal thermohygrometric conditions. Objects, machinery and goods involved in a flood are insulated by water or humid air through special protection materials. After that, per‘s powerful dehumidifiers blow air at predetermined temperature and humidity values to guarantee a complete and quick drying.
