In the petrochemical industry, companies electropolish a wide range of parts and equipment to increase the quality of each part and simultaneously save millions of dollars in down time.
By increasing the durability of each part, Electro-Kleen's electropolishing process extends operating times, reduces adhesion on the surfaces of process equipment, promotes easy cleaning, and lengthens the life of each part against elements such as sour gas. Electropolishing will also result in increased heat transfer efficiency in heat exchangers, enhanced flow characteristics in piping and tubing, and the elimination of burrs from machined parts.
Commonly electropolished parts in the petrochemical industry include:
- Reactor Vessels
- Heat exchangers
- Storage tanks
