AMP Completes Evironmental Upgrades to Anodizing Operation
All Metals Processing has announced that it has completed the installation of environmental upgrades to its anodizing operation.
All Metals Processing (AMP, Stanton, Calif.) has announced that it has completed the installation of environmental upgrades to its anodizing operation. The updates include state of the art environmental controls, a chemical neutralization system, waste treatment tanks, fiberglass reinforced floors, and new chemical resistant floor coating.
According to AMP, air handling was upgraded with push-pull air systems on active tanks for improved flow to AMP ULPA and HEPA filtration systems. Newly added spray rinses reduce cleaning time, keep tanks cleaner and produce less water waste.
AMP says the new anodize controllers reduce cycle times, optimize rectifier ramp rates, and monitor tanks for lost electrical contact. In addition, valves, boiler plumbing, DI water plumbing, solenoids, temperature sensors, and all of the respective electrical have reportedly been replaced. Tank temperatures are controlled automatically with visual indicators to assure process controls provide the best conditions for parts processing.
Types of anodizing, processes, equipment selection and tank construction.
