  • 1. CLEANING .............. PASSIVATING ......... ELECTROPOLISHING . OF STAINLESS STEEL
  • 2. PRESENTATION EXPLAINING the WELD POSTCLEEN SYSTEM ………. its FUNCTIONS, ADVANTAGES, and STAINLESS STEEL
  • 3. ABOUT STAINLESS STEEL
  • 4. What is needed for a STAINLESS STEEL surface? * A smooth surface so contaminants are not trapped or allowed to concentrate. * A surface free of dirt and grease so the chromium oxide has air access. * A thick, continuous chromium oxide film.
  • 5. Welding • PRE-Welding surface preparation can improve the amount of contaminants produced during welding. • Welding itself is not generally the problem. • The issue is pre and post-weld cleaning……. • - Minimize preparation contaminants - Remove heat tint - Remove layer with lower Cr
  • 6. Weld Contaminants Metal cutting fluids. Shared metal cutting / grinding equipment.
  • 7. Chemical Treatments Pickling  Remove weld heat tint and scale.  Remove embedded iron. Passivation  Remove light surface iron contamination.  Immediately forms the protective oxide film.  Enrich the surface with chromium .
  • 8. • Pickling acids remove heavy weld scale, heat tint, the depleted chromium layer. HF based pickling agents attack stainless. Etching: PICKLE PASTE is a OH&S issue.  Hydrofluoric acid is a schedule 7 poison.
  • 9. • Steels containing more than 11% Chromium are capable of forming an invisible, inert or passive, self-repairing oxide film on their surface. • It is this passive layer that gives stainless steels their corrosion resistance.
  • 10. PASSIVATION......... Pas.si.vate To render a metal less liable to corrosion by coating the surface with a substance, such as an oxide. Passivation also is accomplished by ................... Electropolishing.
  • 11. Passivation The passivation of stainless steel is performed when free iron, welding scale, welding tint, iron particles are removed from the surface to allow the protective oxide layer to form. Increases the Chromium content of the surface.
  • 12. ELECTROPOLISHING is a electrochemical process that is a...... SUPER PASSIVATOR of stainless steel and results in a more passive surface. This is typically done to remove any "free- iron" from the surface of the metal, which enhances the corrosion resistance of the stainless steel surface and accelerates the re-formation of the passive layer.
  • 13. Electropolishing The electropolishing process smoothes and streamlines the microscopic surface of a metal object. As a result, the surface of the metal is microscopically featureless.
  • 14. ie. a brighter surface. Roughness typically decreased by 25 to 35%. Courtesy of MME Surface Finishing Electropolishing removes microscopic high points or "peaks" much faster than the corresponding rate of attack on the micro-depressions or "valleys."
  • 15. Smoothness of the metal surface is a very advantageous effect of electropolishing. During the process, a film of varying thickness covers the surfaces of the metal.
  • 16. Electropolishing a valuable alternative..... To Pickling paste ( Hf + Nitric ) AND Nitric acid for Passivating
  • 17. Can electropolishing improve corrosion resistance ? Yes because:  Surface is smoothed and polished.  Sharp edges are removed.  Burrs are removed.  Embedded iron particles are removed.  A Completely passivated surface is formed.
  • 18. Handrail Corrosion Darling Harbour , Sydney Grinding marks Embedded iron 611 Should be SMOOTH Should be CLEAN
  • 19. A summary in a picture... 0.46, 0.62, 0.68 μm 316 handrails at Bondi Beach Tea stained – No4 finish, exposed horizontally Not tea stained – pickled No4 near the weld, treated when the weld was pickled. Not tea stained – a high polish finish . Stained – the weld was not pickled well enough, there was low chromium layer left in the recesses 0.37, 0.39 μm Ra Ra Ra.......measure of surface roughness

  • 28. For best results a supply of clean, ripple-free DC power must be available to drive the process. The DC power must be applied at the correct voltage and current for best results. refer to..... WELD POSTCLEENER specifications. THE WELD POSTCLEEN SYSTEM
  • 29. HOW the WP – WELD POSTCLEEN can help you. 1/ FAST EFFICIENT CLEANING AND ELECTROPOLISHING OF STAINLESS STEEL PRODUCTS WITH THE HIGH POWER OF SYSTEMS AVAILABLE. 2/ NO MORE USING DANGEROUS TOXIC PICKLE PASTE AND NITRIC ACID CHEMICALS THAT ARE ENVIROMENTIALLY HAZARDOUS AND A MAJOR OH&S ISSUE. 3/ MOST POWERFUL SMALL PORTABLE SYSTEM ON THE WORLD MARKET. 4/ POWER SUPPLIES FULLY ADJUSTABLE FROM 100 watts TO 1000 watts WITH SINGLE SYSTEMS. 200 watts TO 2000 watts WITH THE DUAL SYSTEM. 5/ DUAL SYSTEM CAN BE SPLIT TO OPERATE AS TWO ISOLATED SYSTEMS.
  • 30. 6/ CLEAN INTO THE TIGHT CORNERS OF STRUCTURES WITH THE WIDE RANGE OF FLEXIBLE BRUSHES. 7/ EASY REMOVAL OF TEA-STAINING. 8/ LARGE SURFACE AREA CLEANING / PASSIVATING OR POLISHING WITH THE LARGER BRUSH SIZES AVAILABLE. 9/ PORTABLE FOR ONSITE WORK. 10/ EXTEND THE RANGE OF ELECTROPOLISHING BY USING THE ADVANCED DESIGNED BRUSHES. 11/ POWER SUPPLY VERY RELIABLE.............100% DUTY CYCLE.
