Able Electropolishing has experience electropolishing Hastelloy alloys produced by Haynes International. Because these alloys are frequently used as critical components in nuclear and chemical processing equipment, they must be manufactured and finished carefully to prevent and/or eliminate surface imperfections. Hastelloy electropolishing operations remove a controlled, uniform layer of surface material from the part , eliminating imperfections like micro cracks, micro burrs, jagged edges and more than can compromise performance.
Hastelloy alloys are generally chosen for their ability to withstand high-temperature and highly-corrosive environments. If the metal retains embedded contaminants or other surface imperfections after manufacturing, a part’s strength and corrosion resistance can be compromised.
Electropolishing Hastelloy parts removes surface imperfections like micro pits and cracks, which can harbor chemical particles, bacteria and moisture. The process used at Able Electropolishing also eliminates imperfections created by the manufacturing process, like burrs and jagged edges.
During the electropolishing process, Hastelloy parts are submerged in an electrochemical bath that removes a controlled, uniform layer of surface metal. This strips away imperfections and improves the Ra finish by as much as 50%.
Additionally, electropolishing Hastelloy parts is a practical sizing operation. Parts made of this material are used in demanding applications, and accurate sizing is critical. Electropolishing is frequently used as a sizing operation because it removes a uniform amount of surface material, even from complex parts not suited for other sizing operations. This allows us to size parts without warping their shape or altering their proportions.
From implantable devices to surgical instruments, electropolishing is a single-process treatment that results in biocompatible, safe and ultra clean parts.
We offer aerospace vendors and original equipment manufacturers our signature metal finishing services to increase fatigue-resistance for their metal parts, rendering them capable of withstanding the stress and corrosion that comes with long-term use.
Our strict adherence to industry standards ensures that pharmaceutical components are electropolished in accordance with ASTM B912 and ASME BPE specifications. These products are clean and smooth, corrosion resistant and contaminant free.
Corrosion resistance and microfinish improvement are essential for critical automotive parts, making electropolishing an increasingly beneficial option for automakers.
Our metal finishing services help increase corrosion resistance for these parts, and by removing the outermost layer of metal withelectropolishing the durability and longevity of these appliance components is increased.
Electropolishing materials for this industry eliminates the buildup of bacterial biofilms, as well as keeping the equipment free of contaminants like Salmonella. Electropolishing delivers the level of sanitation required by a number of regulatory agencies.
From robotics to mobile equipment, the uses of electropolishing in the hydraulics and pneumatics industry are many. By helping prevent premature part failure, electropolishing reduces downtime and increases the life cycle of these components.
Improving conductivity and performance is just one benefit electropolishing offers for electronics parts. The surface finish is improved by as much as 50%, removing imperfections from the material without material removal.
