Key gains for manufacturer
Published:  08 August, 2014

jacquet_weston_eng.jpgProcess plant manufacturer, JACQUET WESTON ENGINEERING, has announced the completion of an installation of a new electro-chemical stripping cell which is now said to be providing significant benefits for specialist valve manufacturer, BEL Valves. The company says the facility, at the Newcastle upon Tyne premises, is playing a dual role – both as part of the ongoing manufacturing process and also as a highly effective element at the heart of the company’s servicing procedures.

“The installation comprises two 80 litre tanks – one for the stripping process and the other as a wash and rinse facility – alongside a 1,000 amp rectifier,” explains Andy Jones, Jacquet Weston’s engineering director. “The prime requirement is to aid the stripping of hard facing coating on the internal sealing surfaces of a range of valves manufactured by the company to return the substrate back to its base metal ahead of re-coating.”
