    Question Pickling with No chemicals. A Machine can do it?

    Hello,

    I've heard of a machine that does the same thing as pickling chemicals. I'm at a new place of employment where stainless steel is being pickled constantly and am looking for information on a machine that can do the same as the acid chemicals.

    Anyone know of the name of this machine or the company that produces them?

    Thanks.

    It sure would be nice if you gave us a clue as to what SPECIFICLY you are you talking about...

    are you talking a nitric acid pickle like in the passivation of stainless steel??? or a phosphoric acid electropolish?? sparex??? cyanide??


    and as an alternative are you proposing a mechanical cleaning like a dynabrade dry blast cabinet, scotchbrite flapwheels?? or a caustic soda electro etch strip cleaning??? or maybe cosmic rays??

    please give us some more info.... your question as asked is so vague as to be nonsensical....

    Well?????????????????????

    Help us out here with some more info... the poll is stupid as it stands...

    Just for those who don't know, "pickling" stainless is a process to chemically remove welding stains from the work. Obviously, the previous respondents to this thread don't have a clue. Obviously, the previous respondents have no business responding to a purely technical question such as this, since they have no clue. The OP is looking for an electical way to accomplish the same thing, I'd respond but I know no more about this than most of the smart-asses here, and not about to stick my foot in my mouth. I am more than willing to hear from somebody who knows something about this.

    Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....
