Ever since she was a young girl, my sister has been interested in agriculture. After graduating with a degree in agriculture education, she accepted a teaching position at a local high school. For the past three years, she has been amazing her students with her knowledge about subjects such as raising beef cattle, growing flowers, and canning fruit preserves. Since she has a sweet tooth, canning fruit preserves is one of my sister’s favorite pastimes. If she ever has the time, she may even launch her own home based business canning fruit preserves to sell to customers. If you’re considering canning jams, jellies, and other sweet goods to sell to customers, you will need to invest in some state-of-the-art industrial equipment. On this blog, you will discover the types of industrial equipment that are necessary to start a canning business.
While working on an industrial site, you may come across old, corroded hose fittings you need for completing a job. Because you may be unable to use them as they are, you may be trying to find a way to remove the oxidation making them stick together. If so, follow the steps below to use vinegar, steel wool, and mineral oil to remove the rust and protect them from further corrosion.
What You Will Need
Soaking corroded fittings in vinegar helps break down the rust before scrubbing them with steel wool. Once the oxidation is removed, the mineral oil coats the metal and helps prevent further oxidation.
After following the above steps, you should be able to use the hose fittings without any problems. However, if the oxidation has caused deterioration of the metal, you may need to contact an industrial supplier like Hose Pros- 24 Hour Mobile Hydraulic Hose about replacing the fittings on your equipment.
