Whether storing a single gearbox for a few months or shutting down an entire production facility, facility owners risk losing valuable equipment if it is stored improperly. The “Mothballing Handbook” from Cortec Corp., St. Paul, includes preservation specifications and step-by-step instructions for several types of equipment. The no-cost guide also includes product information, case studies and test reports.

The manual is available through the company’s website located at http://www.cortecvci.com/Publications/Lay-Up/mothballing.php.
