Pickling, Rust Removal and Zinc Phosphate
We frequently pickle new and old steel pipes, vessels and components for our engineering clientele.
The process involved in pickling is threefold:
• First of all, the items are given a hot caustic soak and water-blast to remove all traces of grease, oil and other contaminants.
• Next, they are immersion pickled to remove mill scale and corrosion, leaving a clean white-steel substrate.
• And finally, a hot phosphate treatment is undertaken to condition the surface and prevent corrosion.
We are able to accommodate pipes and componentry up to 6 metres in length, which is within the range of most customers’ requirements.
