Thermo-chemical weld cleaning flyer - .PDF file.

The ISOJET III weld cleaner, which is available from Surtech, uses a thermo-chemical method to remove oxide layers from stainless steel in a way that is faster, less hazardous and more ecological than grinding, brushing, shot blasting and chemical processes with aggressive pickling pastes.

The apparatus’s wand and electrolytes — selected specifically for this process — remove only the oxide layers generated by the heat treatment. This guarantees that the optical surface smoothness is fully preserved.

The cleaned workpiece simply has to be rinsed with clean water and protected with a spray to preserve the passive layer required for the corrosion resistance of the steel.

The ISOJET III is attached to a 230V or 110V electrical supply with an adjustable constant current. The electrolyte is applied by dipping the wand into the fluid and then moving it over the discoloured weld at a rate of up to 2m/min, leaving a clean surface on both grained and polished stainless steel.

The ISOJET III also offers a ‘Magic Printing’ function. This refers to the electro-chemical etching of chrome-nickel materials. Company logos, codes, names or other data can be applied, creating a permanent and corrosion-resistant effect.

‘Magic Printing’ is said to be simple to use: the user has to set the unit voltage to ‘ETCH’, place the stencil on the workpiece, moisten the printing felt and the film with the special etching electrolyte, pass the electrode over two or three times and the printing operation is complete.
