The SIFCO Process® for selective electroplating is useful in helping chemical and petrochemical plants execute fast, efficient and cost-effective maintenance turnarounds.
By utilizing the SIFCO Process® for selective plating, maintenance engineers and general contractors can repair pumps, motors, flanges, valves, and other components on-site by applying metal to the components without the heat or distortion caused by welding or flame-spraying. Technicians can plate to size, often without the need for post-machining.
With the global clampdown on the use of plastics, and the over overcapacity of petrochemical processing facilities, engineers must do all they can to reduce the probability of unplanned downtime that creates losses in production and profit. The SIFCO Process® is a portable, efficient and economical way of performing surface treatment repairs and maintenance in-situ.
As the SIFCO Process ® is fully portable, the plating up to 100 different metals and alloys is possible without the use of tanks.
