CID 101 Corrosion Inhibitor Device

Crouse-Hinds series CID 101 Vapor Phase Corrosion Inhibitor devices are utilized during use, storage, and shipment of products to provide longterm protection against airborne corrosion from salt spray and excessive humidity condensation.  CID 101s provide corrosion protection for ferrous and nonferrous metals including steel, copper, aluminum, brass, solder, silver, etc.  

CID 101 corrosion inhibitors are placed in the interiors of conduit outlet bodies and boxes, junction boxes, panelboards, and enclosures at petroleum refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants, food processing plants, and various other process industry facilities where airborne corrosion presents problems.

Certifications and compliances

  • Food and Drug Administration conformance. CFR Title 21 178.3300

Design features

  • Provide widespread protection for ferrous and non-ferrous metals including steel, copper, aluminum, brass, solder, silver, etc.
  • Particularly well-suited for protection of electrical and electronic equipment because the vapors emitted do not change the characteristics of metals they are protecting – not chemically, electrically, or metallurgically
  • Extend life of product and minimize downtime from product failures caused by corrosive attack
  • Under normal usage, provide continuous protection of one cubic foot of enclosed space against corrosion for up to two years; actual operating life expectancy may vary depending on the corrosive atmosphere, temperature, or air movement
  • Quickly and easily installed without need for tools, or requiring special surface preparation, oiling, spraying, or dipping
  • Safe to use; vapors released are regarded as non-toxic under use conditions; and the polyurethane foam material is flame-retardant
