Lines for surface treatment including anodizing and chemical cleaning are now being sold in the UK by Turbex as a result of a new sole agency agreement, signed in February 2014, with the Finnish company, Galvatek.
Established for over 30 years, the manufacturer has designed, delivered, installed and continues to service more than 600 turnkey installations in over 35 countries. The equipment is normally fully automated and is renowned for its efficiency, reliability and low emissions.
Galvatek is well known in the aerospace sector, as its multi-stage lines for chemical cleaning, anodizing, etching, phosphating and passivation are used in the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) sector and in factories manufacturing aircraft parts, including for aero engines.
Supply of electroplating plant forms a large part of the Finnish firm's business. Such facilities comprise one or several lines of tanks and use typically nickel, copper, chromium, tin or zinc, while silver and gold plating processes can also be supplied.
Chemical surface treatment plants are built either for one specific purpose or as part of a larger package where it prepares parts for other surface treatment phases, complete with waste water purification and recycling.
