Pickling and Passivation

One of the high quality specialty services we provide at Orbit Industries, LLC. is pickling and passivation. Typically service requires a mere 24 hour lead time. Perfect for anything from simple hand railings to the full insides of tanks and vessels, our 10,000--lb. dip tank capacity and 20,000--lb. spray application capacity will remove oxidation contamination from fabricated stainless steel and exotic material (Inconel and Hastelloy) surfaces. Our ASTM A380/A967 industry standard technologies will leave your items without a hint of rust, enabling it to resist any further corrosive processes. We follow up on these processes with optional extensive nitrogen drying and UV inspection, thereby ensuring your welded assemblies are clean for their intended service.
