  1. Monthly-Check equipment for N2 purge(re-purge as necessary) or vapor phase corrosion inhibitor viability using Corte VpCI detection kits.  Ensure all flanged pipe ends are covered with flangeDOT+VCI/flangeDOT+Tag+VCI and flangeBUMPER if vapor phase corrosion inhibitor is used for corrosion mitigation.
  2. Clean coat all exposed machined surfaces with Cortec VpCI-368 and check monthly.
  3. Ensure motors/pumps have grease/oil present.  If motors/pumps will not be placed in use for an  extended period of time, install preservation  grease such as Cortec CorrLube or if oil is required (ISO-32/Cortec M-531 at 95-5 mixture) as required by the manufacturer and  rotate 10 ½ turns monthly
  4. Install emitter (Cortec VpCI-105/111) in all junction boxes and panels
  5. Connect all space heaters/anti-condensation heaters to power supply per vendors recommendation
  6. Yearly-Meger motors and change oil in driven equipment
  7. Monthly-Inspect packaged equipment/skids for signs of damage…ensure skid drains are open and not plugged. Inspect installed valves


*Ensure manufacturers short/long term preservation and storage procedures are followed...  Follow OEM recommendations where possible*
