We can offer customers a full
technical consultation service, working together to solve their surface
engineering problems, reducing cost, improving performance and extending
component life cycles.
We develop and apply sophisticated coating solutions, for use in many engineering applications.
We provide our customers with surfaces that provide:-
Our flexible production facilities
deliver fast turnaround times and can cope with one-off large complex
components or high volume production runs.
Within the nuclear industry, chains
operating in a warm nitric acid environment quickly become dry and are
subject to extreme corrosion. The hoist chains and sprockets are
required to be made from carbon steel rather than stainless steel
because of the wear characteristics required for this application.
Surface Technology developed dry film lubrication that resisted the
corrosive atmosphere and provided the lubrication required,
significantly reducing the down-time and expense of changing these
chains in a radioactive environment.
