Nuclear Electropolishing & Passivation Services

Electropolishing and  passivation are both widely used processes in the nuclear industry. Often used for parts that will be subjected to radioactive environments where surface smoothness cleanability is very important. Nuclear electropolishing services increase the surface smoothness to promote easier cleaning by removing any small burrs or protrusions left after the manufacturing process. Electropolishing can also reduce radioactive contamination when compared to an untreated surface due to a decreased absorption rate. Common practice utilizes electropolishing as a stress relieving operation after mechanical polishing. Call to request a quote today on your nuclear electropolishing and passivation service needs.

Nuclear Industry Usage

The process can also be used for subsequent decontamination after the part has been in use. The process is used to reduce radioactive contamination by removing a fine layer of surface material and in the process flushing away any embedded or the surface contaminants. 

Why Choose Electro-Max for the Nuclear Industry?

Typically, nuclear applications will require a preclean via pickling or passivation to remove any free iron or other surface contaminants. This process will prepare the surface for electropolishing by providing a clean contaminant free surface so the electropolishing process can achieve its full potential.
