Pickling and Passivation

Following fabrication, all CRA (alloy 625/825) and Duplex fabricated items are pickled and passivated by immersion. For vessels and other components, this is usually applied by spraying. The procedure embraces the requirements of ASTM A380 and ASTM A967 specifications and standards. Mechanical polishing, pickle & passivation and Ferroxyl testing can be carried out on site.
