It's that time of year again -- the road salt corrosion season. Not so long ago, the Technology and Maintenance Council published a three-part corrosion analysis stating that magnesium chloride is significantly more corrosive than traditional road salt -- and the study suggested that calcium chloride is even worse. While fleet managers have no control over the choice of road de-icing chemicals, they can choose the ways they will protect equipment during the months that the chemicals are used. Phillips Industries has put together a list of ways to protect on-highway equipment: 1. Specify premium wiring systems. 2. Repair chassis paint stone chips as soon as possible. 3. If cracking is present on half-worn lining, review with supplier.
