Coating Removal; For Anode Attachment, Holiday Patch Repair and Pin Brazing.
Application Process; Removing factory applied 3LPP coating from a 24 inch pipe to allow attachment of bracelet anodes. The heating cycle time is approximately 70 seconds. A 170mm disc of typical 4mm – 6mm thick PP can then be removed in one piece, by making a circular cut in the softened PP with a blade. Simply lift the edge of the disc of PP and remove. The pipe is then still hot enough after removal of the PP to remove the remaining adhesive and FBE with a scrapper. The surface can then be manually cleaned with abrasion. The residual heat remaining in the pipe at this stage, aids welding of the anode pads.
Hand held induction coils can be supplied for your specific applications, including holiday patch repair and pin brazing.
