Rust Remediation

From generator enclosures to fuel tanks – Whether indoors or outdoors, rust will surface and decompose your equipment if not treated. Rust refers to the oxide, usually reddish-brown in color, produced when the metal surface comes into contact with oxygen, water, and acidic substances in the air.

Rust will damage your equipment/parts – Rust weakens metal by reducing its mass and so over a period of time, the piece of iron may no longer be able to support the weight it once held and will decompose, thus causing a rippling effect of problems which you will incur not only an increase in repair costs but also safety issues.

    Is rust strictly a cosmetic issue?

    No – Rust effects the integrity of the surface / part and will eventually cause that piece to be inoperable causing financial and safety repercussions.

    If I notice rust on my fuel tank - Can I just patch it?

    No – Rust will spread. If not treated properly, rust will cause a hole enabling water / moisture to enter your tank contaminating the fuel.

    If my generator is located within the building / controlled environment, can I still get rust.

    Yes – Rusting is a process of oxidation, where oxygen and water work to produce iron oxides.Such molecules are in the air thus even though not exposed to the outdoor environment, the surface / parts may be exposed to rust.
