Construction, upgrading, restoration of electroplating lines

Electroplating facilities are in the hazardous category because of chemical byproducts appearing during electroplating processes. The use of combined exhaust-and-input ventilation is therefore obligatory for health-hazardous matter’s removal.

Zonal ventilation: exhaust hoods, lateral exhausts, fume chambers and panels provide contaminations’ accelerated removal from technological solutions’ surfaces. The removed air masses are conducted by ventilators to the general exhaust collector and undergo air cleaning by filters, absorbers or other air-cleaning equipment.

Besides zonal ventilation systems, thegeneral exhaust/dilution system system is required, which has to provide air exchange at three volumes per day. Ventilation systems, piping systems and air and waste treatment systems can be supplied in whole or in part, with installation or supervision, basing on the customer’s project or design by Ekoplast Stancl Ukraine. Our company performs adaptive replacement of elements and modules of these systems as well.

The systems of water treatment, waste water neutralizing and treatment are designed according to specific conditions of each customer and use all scope of up-to-date technical solutions approved by actual industrial practice.

 

Electroplating baths

Electroplating baths are made of polymeric materials (polypropylene, polyethylene, PVDF) reinforced with steel frames, thermally insulated, or of stainless steel and are equipped as per customer’s requirements. Electroplating baths can be supplied with all needed equipment: current-conducting elements, lateral exhausts, mixers, upper lids, gears, stoppage points, bar-swaying devices and so on.

The baths made by Ekoplast Stancl Ukraine are designed for all processes of electrochemical surface treatment and coating: electroplating, anodizing, etching, degreasing, hot and cold rinse etc. Fittings and valves, positioning devices, heaters, mixers are the optional equipment.

Dimensions and shapes of baths and plating equipment are customized for customer’s needs. Piping systems and additional equipment are supplied according to customer’s task. The baths can be divided into sections if necessary.

Restoration and coating of existing baths made of any material are also possible. Coating of existing electroplating baths with chemically resistant materials provides both walls’ protection from solutions’ impact and avoidance of solutions’ contamination as a result of walls’ corrosion. Coating also serves as the bath’s electrical insulation.

Polymeric materials are widely applied as corrosion protection materials. For electroplating baths they can be used as coating or insert lining, while metallic case provides the bath’s mechanical integrity.

 

Manipulators for electroplating lines

Manipulators for electroplating lines provide high process variability, safety for personnel and minimize human error probability in electroplating process.

Manipulators’ configuration can be portal, carrier, telpher and console.

Manipulator’s functions are defined by its design and are mechanically autonomous (without interference) with respective blocking solutions. These functions are:

  • Horizontal motion with activation by gear motor with integrated breaks and rotation velocity regulation, which allow smooth start and stop;
  • Vertical motion with activation by gear motor with integrated breaks and rotation velocity regulation, which allow control of movement speed; the lifting is conducted with chain gear in enclosed case for maximum safety.
  • Lifting and lowering control.

Mutual blocking of horizontal and vertical motion to avoid their simultaneousness is provided by control system. It also allows full lift and lowering of cathodic bar or plating drum. Electric power is supplied from low voltage network. Power cables of the manipulator are assembled on the console which moves with the manipulator.

The manual control panel is placed on the service deck side of the manipulator. It allows inputting all manipulator’s operational parameters manually.

Manipulator’s laser positioning and security light detectors (which block operation if the bath is already engaged) are installed in most of electroplating lines.

Metal parts of the manipulator are painted with chemically resistant epoxy-based compounds; gear details have corrosion-proof insulation. The wheels are polyurethane-coated. The rails of portal manipulators are made of stainless steel.

Storage units, tanks and reservoirs used in industry have increased technical and safety requirements and standards, which are to be fulfilled by the manufacturer.

Industrial tanks are used for storing:

  • Industrial chemicals – a wide spectrum of chemicals used in industry, including chemical, metallurgical, mining, pharmaceutical and a lot of other industries;
  • Waste water and treated waste water, reagents, flocculants – relatively aggressive media used in water treatment;
  • Solutions used in agriculture – fertilizers, insecticides etc.;
  • Solutions used in food industry – milk, wine, beer and so on, as well as cleaning solutions for food industry;
  • Chemicals used for biodiesel production – organic matters, sulfuric acid, caustic soda, carbamide etc.;
  • Cleaning, washing and disinfection solutions.

Our highly qualified and experienced personnel is ready to provide you with all needed consulting about your storage tasks and technical inquiry definition. We suggest the following FAQs for your storage tasks:

  • Reservoir’s or tank’s volume;
  • Chemicals’ content and concentrations;
  • Temperature of the medium;
  • Ambient temperature;
  • Most suitable tank’s configuration (dimensions, shape, specialties: manholes, lids, double walls etc.);
  • Space limitations of your workshop;
  • Indoors or outdoors installation;
  • Connections, fittings, tank’s ventilation;
  • Additional options: insulation, weather protection, control equipment, ladders and service platforms and so on.

Ekoplast Stancl Ukraine are experts in design and manufacturing of chemically resistant ventilation systems, including air treatment systems.

The company’s production program includes:

  • Turnkey ventilation systems;
  • Ventilators;
  • Air ducts and pipes;
  • Filters, absorbers, scrubber filters;
  • Automation and control systems.

Industrial ventilation systems are subject to aggressive media, chemical impact, high temperatures, vibration and other production processes’ impacts. Steel ventilation corrodes progressively under such conditions and demands constant repair and replacement. At the same time stainless steel ventilation equipment if expensive and its chemical resistance limitations emerge only with time.

Polymeric industrial ventilation is solidly corrosion-proof. Polymeric ventilation elements have reduced weight and demand less support construction. Smooth inner surface provides maximum flow. Repair and replacement of polymeric ventilation elements is an easy and non-demanding operation.

These are the reasons for Ekoplast Stancl Ukraine to manufacture polymeric ventilation equipment and to perform replacement of existent systems and installation of newly produced ones. The company’s experience in ventilation systems’ manufacturing and installation constitutes over ten years and several hundred projects, of which ten percent are turnkey workshop systems.

The company’s specialists conduct our own research and measurements, design general and local exhaust and dilution systems, using professional equipment and software which calculates productivity and emulates mass exchange, flow characteristics and other system’s parameters.

Highly qualified engineering and assembly personnel possess experience in ventilation systems’ installation in any kind of circumstances, i. e. elevations, limited space, ongoing technological processes etc.

Aggressive media that appear as result of technological processes should not enter the atmosphere, so air treatment is required. It is accomplished by customized air treatment systems which include filtration, adsorption by liquids, gravitational separation etc.

The company designs, manufactures and constantly improves its own models of filters, absorbers, scrubber filters, centrifugal separators which are custom designed for every customer’s technology and air treatment requirements.
