|Metal fabricators have been continually plagued by the unsightly weld burns that cover their precision welds.  Time, labor, and costly chemicals needed to clean the almost-finished product cut into profit margins and reduce shop efficiency and morale.  Capital Weld Cleaners has created the perfect solution.  The Capital Weld Cleaner provides shop professionals with the most dependable and efficient electro-chemical cleaner on the market.  The electric cleaner uses precision technology to instantly clean discoloration from recently welded materials.  Within minutes, your technicians will have a picture-perfect finished product and be ready to move to the next task.  No more abrasives, no more excessive labor, no more headaches.  Capital Weld Cleaners will put you back in control of your shop... and your bottom line.|
In the past the process consisted of "pickle and passivate" - a two-step method used to create a surface on stainless steel that resists corrosion.  Pickling or chemical descaling is done to remove the scale and to clean the part before the passivation process takes place.  The passivating of stainless steel is done post fabrication with the end goal of making the surface more passive and corrosion resistant by restoring the surface to the original characteristics with a protective oxide film.
The passivation process removes unwanted debris and oils from the surface and then submerges the part into a passivating bath.  When a part is machined or welded dirt and debris and other particles such as free iron, grease and machining oils can become embedded in the surface.  These are often unseen and are the causes of surface deterioration.  Passivation doesn't change the appearance of the part but acts like a protective coating by creating a monomoleclur oxide film to protect the item.
