How to protect cylinder rods in a marine environment against corrosion due to salt?

In maritime environments, cylinder rods may be exposed to extreme conditions, such ascorrosiondue to exposure to salt, which can rreduce their lifespanand lead toCostly downtime and frequent repairs. 

The challenges of salt corrosion in maritime environments

Salt corrosion is a common concern in maritime environments, where salt buildup on cylinder rods exposes these surfaces to corrosion-prone conditions. Stainless steel or galvanized steel rods can provide some strength, but the quality of the steel and conditions
environmental factors can influence their performance.

Eclore protective bellows

An effective solution to counter corrosion due to salt is the use of protective bellows, in particular Eclore bellows. Resistant to chemicals, marine corrosion and mechanical damage, these bellows extend the life of cylinder rods, reducing wear from friction, contamination and UV exposure. An option particularly suited to environments

Advanced options: premium stainless steel and titanium alloy rods

An alternative is to opt for stainless steel cylinder rods
high quality or titanium alloy. These materials provide increased resistance to salt corrosion, extending the life of cylinder rods in demanding marine environments. The choice of solution depends on the specific requirements of each environment, the associated costs and benefits. By protecting cylinder rods, vessel owners can extend equipment life, minimize downtime and strengthen
the safety of maritime operations.
