• Pickling & Passivation Stainless Steel

    Stainless steel services
    Stainless steel owes its varied application to its natural corrosion resistance, or passivity. Passivity is bestowed on the material by the formation of an extremely thin and complex surface oxide layer. The layer itself is vulnerable to damage from manipulation of the material during processing, fabrication and even transport. The result is a loss of passivity at damaged areas, with a reduction in corrosion resistance as a consequence. Surface damage of stainless steel can lead to unexpected corrosion.

    Stainless Steel Tanks Acid Cleaning
    One of our main services is Stainless Steel Tanks Acid Cleaning that is manufactured using high quality raw material that provides durability to these tanks. These tanks are available in different sizes to meet the various requirements of our clients.

    Services offered in-our plant or often on-site that assist in maximizing the final corrosion resistance and passivity include:
    -Degreasing pre-treatments
    -Pickling & Passivation – industrial, pharmaceutical and marine
    -Electro polishing and Passivation
    -Management/installation of pickling baths
    -Decontamination of fouled stainless steel process equipment

    Pickling & Passivation Carbon steel

    Carbon steel services
    Rust and annealing skin on steel may decrease the heat transfer, can cause product contamination and may result in severe damage. Carbon steel services we provide are:
    -Pickling and passivating
    -One-step cleaning
    -Cleaning according Ultra-clean specs
    -Wastewater treatment
    -Removal of process contamination

    Electro polishing

    Electropolishing Services
    Electropolishing is an electrochemical process similar to, but the reverse of, electroplating. The electropolishing process smooths and streamlines the microscopic surface of a metal object such as 304, 316, and the 400 series stainless steel. As a result, the surface of the metal is microscopically featureless, with not even the smallest speck of a torn surface remaining.

    Oil Flushing

    Systems such as fuel lines lube lines, oil transfer lines and hydraulic systems require extremely clean piping.
    Future gate provides oil flushing services in conjunction with our pickling and passivation services for lube oil piping. New construction of lube oil, fuel oil piping and hydraulic tubing systems require high velocity flushing for removal of construction debris and contaminants that can damage high purity fluid handling systems. Surface integrity can be established with our flushing services to maintain operational longevity with elimination of damaging particles and corrosion from the systems contact surfaces.

    Retro jetting and Flushing

    Retro jetting of pipe systems can be described as a cleaning system designed for internal cleaning of pipes, process lines, sewers and tubes.
    Retro jetting has been widely used in Industrial Cleaning application for the removal of deposits from process lines, tube bundles, heater coils and sewer lines for many years.
    The nozzle water jets are allowed to travel through the pipe or tube systems by the natural pulling force created by rearward facing water jets on the nozzle head. When these powerful water jets pass over any internal debris the debris is dislodged and forced out the pipe system. Using the retro jetting technique, pipe internal can be cleaned and flushed from small diameter of 3" up to 72" and above.
    , far superior operational techniques than conventional flushing is achieved by the professional approach of our technicians.
