Metals and Steel Pickling

ANSIMAG sealless magnetic drive plastic lined pumps to keep our employees safe.

Sealless magnetic drive pumps that safely handle hydrochloric and sulfuric acids used for metals pickling, etching and plating.

Metals manufacturing operators utilize the pickling process to treat metal surfaces to remove impurities, such as stains, inorganic contaminants, rust or scale, from ferrous metals, copper, and aluminum alloys. A solution called pickle liquor, which contains strong hydrochloric and sulfuric acids, is used to remove the surface impurities. It is commonly used to descale or clean steel in various steelmaking processes. The Sundyne line of non-metallic magnetic drive pumps are ideal for pickling, etching and plating.

Pickling, Etching and Plating

Manufacturers of metals including stainless steel, copper, aluminum and other metals must treat the impurities left over from the production process with hydrochloric and sulfuric acid. ANSIMAG sealless magnetic drive pumps are perfect for containing the acids with no exposure to the environment. The plastic lining  makes the pumps last reliably – as there are  no problems with chemical compatibility inherent in steel, metal or cast iron pumps.

Spray Cooling

Delivering the temperature control capabilities needed to ensure the success of metal fabrication is an important part of metals manufacturing. Operators of metal manufacturing processes utilize spray cooling for reducing the temperature in hot steel plate and coil cooling applications. Sunflo pumps deliver high-pressure water on demand as an important part of the metals manufacturing process.
