Steel / Metal Finishing

Expertise in Thermoplastic Acid Handling and Fume Extraction Systems

The mainly acidic chemicals (also referred to as liquor or pickle liquor) used in metal finishing and electroplating require sturdy, highly corrosion-resistant piping systems, valves and actuators.  These systems also require monitoring for proper concentration and temperature.  

Corrosive acid waste from these processes requires environmentally safe collection and removal using double-containment piping.  And the harmful and often aggressive fumes from these processes must be safely exhausted using a duct material that doesn’t corrode or allow static build-up. We have the products and expertise to solve these problems. You will find Simtech products in use worldwide for:

  • Pickling lines
  • Electroplating
  • Waste removal, storage and treatment
  • Fume Exhaust
  • Scrubbing systems
  • pH adjustment

Simtech has decades of experience helping engineers and plant operators design, specify and install cost-effective, long-lasting systems for the metal finishing industry to handle chemicals such as:

  • Hydrochloric acid  (HCl)
  • Sulfuric acid   (H2SO4)
  • Phosphoric acid  (H3PO4)
  • Nitric acid  (HNO3) 
  • Hydrofluoric acid   (HF)
  • Spent pickle liquor
  • Ferric chloride.  (FeCl2)

Experts in Retrofit and Upgrades 

If you have failing components or an aging, corroded system, ask our experts about how we have helped plant operators worldwide lower their costs of ownership, improve safety and extend service life at their metal finishing operations.  We specialize in replacing and upgrading from lined steel and FRP piping and duct systems to high-performance thermoplastic systems using only the most advanced technologies, materials and installation techniques
