Thermax Adopts NCH Versatile Rust and Corrosion Preventer for Metal Surfaces in Manufacturing Industry


NCH Asia announced that Thermax, the global engineering company based in Pune, India, has adopted NC 123 Plus, the moisture displacing solution from NCH, as a cost-effective quality maintenance solution for its HRSG (Heat Recovery steam generators), achieving cost saving of up to million dollars by making its fin replacement unnecessary.

Thermax builds and supplies HRSG worldwide which is used in generating steam from exhaust gas of turbines. Made up of multiple finned tubes, HRSG is extremely susceptible to rust and corrosion due to moisture. Repair and restoration of the finned tubes is a major cost factor for Thermax and could result in a significant repair cost. Complying with the environmental protection norms, Thermax would not accept any solution which might involve painting or oil spraying.

NC 123 Plus solvent (ISO 9001), a de-moisturizing compound, is a perfect answer for electrical equipment. It is easy to apply as it is applicable to any surface, whether wet or dry, and protects the heat transfer surface of HRSG finned tubes by displacing moisture and leaving a thin, continuous water-proof film that also lubricates them.

NC 123 Plus fully met the requirements of both Thermax and the third-party inspection authorities. We have been using NCHs products like NC 123, CCX 77 (Chain Cable oil), Duo Power (Degreaser and cleaner), Shiny Side (for cleaning aluminum radiators), DriLube lubricant and Chemstrip (paint remover) to name few and have been very satisfied with NCHs cost-effective quality maintenance solutions. Would recommend this to any user who wishes to try these. says Shekhar Desai “ Head, Manufacturing Support Services, B&H division, Thermax Limited.
