Aeronautical

 

Aircraft components must be able to withstand friction, high temperatures and corrosive environments.

Applications

Corrosion protection

Materials used for corrosion protection deposits with low hydrogen embrittlement Cadmium and Zinc-Nickel formulations allow on-site repair work with minimal dismantling

Pre-brazing surface preparation

Blades, frames, vane and turbine stators are treated with nickel to ensure proper wetting of solder surfaces. Compared to other methods of nickel application, selective electrolytic metallization is faster, more homogeneous and above all more economical.

Surface treatment

Nickel or nickel alloy improves the hardness and wear resistance of OEM components.

Refurbishment

Nickel sulfamate is applied to resize an inner or outer diameter of a component. anodizing Selective electroplating replaces worn or damaged hardcoat with a new anodized coating.

 

Marine Industry

 

Portable electrochemical metallization is used on boats for the repair of large, difficult-to-dismantle components such as propeller shafts, bearing bearings and turbine casings.

Applications

  • Pumps: bearing housings, rotor bores, bearing pivots and seals
  • Valves: gate valves, discs, valve stems, sealing rings
  • Propulsion components: drive shaft pivot (line) and seals, drive shaft bearings, bearing calipers
  • Electrical: motor, generators, caliper, rotor journals, switches, bus bars
  • Power Generation: Steam Turbine Bearing Pivots, Flange Faces, Diesel Engine Cylinder Sleeves, Connecting Rod Bits, Crankshaft Trunnions
  • Building: seal door sealing knife, hatch covers, hull inserts, access doors
  • Hydraulics: cylinders and rudder bars

 

Transportation & Machinery

 

Portable electrochemical metallization is used on trucks, road transport equipment, wagon and railway rails as well as machinery for component repairs.

Applications

  • Pumps: bearing housings, rotor bores, bearing pivots and seals
  • Valves: gate valves, discs, valve stems, sealing rings
  • Drives: drive shaft pivot (line) and seals, driveshaft bearings, bearing calipers
  • Electrical: motor, generators, caliper, rotor journals, switches, bus bars
  • Hydraulic: hydraulic cylinders
  • Railway Rail: Axle Trunnions and Wheel Seats, Reconstruction of Seal Wear Ring Areas

 

Component Repairs & OEM Services

 

Equipment repair or replacement parts (OEM) service companies such as fixed or mobile machine shops, reconditioning of electric motors or other equipment components, etc. have a clear advantage to integrate selective electrochemical metallization services in addition to the services offered or to replace less efficient or more expensive rehabilitation methods.
