  1. 1. • Electrolyte solution formulation using an electolyte mini-plant • Variables in use for the chemical formulation of the electrolyte solution and targets: HFree Life Pickling - Progetto LIFE 13 ENV/IT/000440 PHASE B.1 - 18 materials - 3 acid mixtures - 7 «additives» - 4 excercising temperatures - 6 current densities Note: including preliminary phase Minimum attachment Optimum finishingNO TOXIC SUBSTANCES ν ν ν
  2. 2. HFree Life Pickling - Progetto LIFE 13 ENV/IT/000440 PHASE B.2 • Process fundamental parameters: Optimum energetic parametersν Time reduction of the process by 70%ν Optimize solution agingν
  3. 3. HFree Life Pickling - Progetto LIFE 13 ENV/IT/000440 PHASE B.3 •Analysis of the production for determining the required production capacity for the plant to become competitive at industrial scale. Standardisation of the production for determining the impact on the pickling process for various alloys groups. On this basis a modular architecture has been identified: •Design and construction of an electrolyte «mini-plant» for the executions of the first tests over tubular geometry. Confirmation of results on plain samples νDesing and construction of a “mini-plant”ν Design and construction of the industrial plant Best design for the industrial plant ν ѵ
  4. 4. HFree Life Pickling - Progetto LIFE 13 ENV/IT/000440 PHASE C.1 • Analisys of the traditional pickling process and its auxiliary plants: Environmental impact of the traditional analysis νLay-out traditional processν Environmental impact of the electrolyte process
  5. 5. HFree Life Pickling - Progetto LIFE 13 ENV/IT/000440 PHASE C.2 – PROVINCE OF VICENZA • Cooperation with Rivit in the analysis of the production capacity of the process. • Study of the design of the plant to ensure a production capacity much higher with regards to the traditional process. • Analysis of the potential process applications to other industries. Minimise energy and garbage management costs in the process Optimisation of the production capacity of the process
  6. 6. HFree Life Pickling - Progetto LIFE 13 ENV/IT/000440 PHASE D • Design and put on-line informative panels (on the side). • Website of the project and social media • Participation at Tube 2016 fair. Informative panelsWebsite of the projectν ν Tube 2016 fair Press releases
