A quick list of the most important factors to bear in mind when determining your rinsing process.
Water is becoming an increasingly expensive commodity with even further restrictions in certain areas of the country (pity the poor folks in California). As a result, there has never been a better time to give some thought to maximizing the efficiency of your rinsing process. Put simply, rinsing is a process that dilutes and then removes surface films and contaminants, reducing them to a level that won’t impede your surface finishing process.
As one of the most important steps in any metal finishing process, it’s critical to have your metals rinsed regularly and properly. A truly effective rinsing process is essentially a matter of maximizing your system’s layout, choosing the right equipment, chemicals and slotting it in at the right time in your process cycle. Get this balancing act just right, and you can reap such benefits as water conservation, decreased the demand on your waste treatment system, and the continuing smooth operation of your process line.
