(6 March 2012). Luvata ElectroFin announces that it will provide corrosion-proofing services at a second Florida facility to meet the growing demand for HVAC&R coil protection against corrosive coastal environments. The newest facility in Pompano Beach, Florida will offer INSITU®, a spray applied, permanent, water-based, synthetic coating developed specifically for the protection of heat transfer coils and components.
Pompano Beach is situated along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean just north of Fort Lauderdale. The Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach metropolitan area is home to over 5.5 million residents and is ideally situated to serve customers in South Florida as well as the Caribbean.
“Exposure to salt air in coastal regions is often detrimental to finned coils and now people are beginning to realize the cost of corrosion in terms of lifetime operating costs. Second only to full immersion, spray applied INSITU® is the most effective way to combat this type of corrosion,” indicates Ralph Rice, General Manager with Luvata ElectroFin. “The addition of a second Florida location demonstrates our commitment to better serve customers who recognize the benefit of spray-applied INSITU® protection.”
The new Pompano Beach facility is located just 1.5 miles from Interstate 95 and one mile from the Florida turnpike, providing easy access to South Florida. The facility has an area of 19,050-square feet for plant operations, with additional 2,400-square feet of office space and 16,000-square feet of secure outside storage. The building includes three grade level bay doors and two dock height doors for easy collection and delivery. Equipment installation and building modifications will begin immediately with production planned for May 1.
Pompano Beach joins Luvata ElectroFin’s five other locations in Louisville, Kentucky; Jacksonville, Texas; Temecula and San Leandro, California; and Tampa, Florida in offering spray-applied coil corrosion protection. Luvata also recently announced expansion plans for its coil corrosion protection coatings near Monterrey, Mexico, targeting to be fully operational by the first quarter of 2013.
