PKG Equipment designs, fabricates and installs custom finishing equipment such as the pictured anodize and chemical film treatment system used for Type I, Type II and Type III anodizing. In this system, 87 tanks ranging from about 850 to 1,400 gallons and two stainless steel dryers are configured into four tank lines. A 43.5-ft. semi-automatic shuttle tank fabricated from copolymer polypropylene (PPC) transfers parts between three of the tank lines. All of the tanks were fabricated from PPC, carbon steel, Koroseal-lined steel or stainless steel.  Various tanks were equipped with heat exchanger and filtration skids, insulated covers, drip shields, spray bars, steam coils, and instrumentation.

The system also includes three ventilation systems comprised of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) hoods, PVC ductwork, two existing exhaust fans, one new exhaust fan and a PVC scrubber. Two PVC push-air systems also were also provided for the ventilated stations.
