Land Rover Exhaust Manifolds
Date: July 2009
Customer: Hitachi Metals
Hitachi Metals produce exhaust manifolds for Land Rover. 1300 of these high value manifolds had been packed in a well known manufacturers anti rust bags, but still rusted in transit and were rejected by the customer. It is a very expensive and time consuming task to reproduce the manifolds.
1) The Task
Hitachi Metals approached HITEK-nology Solutions Ltd to provide a solution for reclaiming these manifolds.
2) Product Used
- VpCI 422
3) The Solution
The manifolds were de-rusted by soaking in a vat of VpCI 422.
Once de-rusted they were de-greased using VpCI 416, and then placed back in the packing case, the packing case was lined with VpCI 126 giving the manifolds two years corrosion protection.
