Last fall I bought some miscellaneous test equipment at a great price and stored it in my shed on my property. I carefully stored each piece in a plastic garbage bag, and wrapped it such that SOME air could still circulate in each bag. This weekend I went out to get some of the equipment and I found a small amount of green corrosion on the aluminum surfaces of some of the equipment. The most corrosion was found on the HP equipment, which has aluminum front panels. Interestingly, the corrosion almost looks like it is NOT the aluminum but something ON it, like some other material - maybe an illusion, oils from fingers, etc?
Well, anyway how do I PROPERLY store this equipment in the meantime? I intend to remove it from the shed and get it back to the house. Should I put a dessicant package in each equipment bag? How does the military do this - perhaps this way? Thanks for any suggestions.
