Description

Xion Salts is one of the largest salt processing companies in Greece. Any salt processing facility is especially vulnerable to chloride salt contamination, and thus extreme corrosion conditions. Below you will find pictures and descriptions. Any salt processing facility is especially vulnerable to chloride salt contamination, and thus extreme corrosion conditions. Sodium chloride is the principle ingredient in table salt which XION processes. Unfortunately it’s one of the most aggressive corrosion inducing salts in the environment.
To neutralize the source of the corrosion, wet-abrasive blasting was used, with corrosion inhibitors added to the water. The mechanical cleaning action combined with simultaneous flushing of water has been proven time and time again to bring the levels of chloride contamination down to safe levels for recoating—especially combined with a small grained abrasive like Green Lightning, GL 40.
