One of the costliest expenses in the finishing industry is that of aging equipment, which can mean a surge in downtime. And with an increase in downtime, an opportunity for other costly hindrances for the organization. One way to improve the longevity of your plating line, more specifically the life of your tanks, is to use Carson drop-in liners.
In this article, you’ll gain more insight into how to increase the lifetime of your electroplating tanks. How using plating liners can protect the environment, help ensure your staff’s safety, sustain the integrity of the chemicals, provide flexibility of usage and ease of installation.
Drop-In liners Protect the Environment
Your tanks may contain corrosive chemicals. Over time the opportunity for cracks and corrosion increases with use. Cracks, especially if left undetected, can lead to costly repairs. Drop-in liners are designed to accommodate a broad range of plating solutions. They act as second tanks. The use of these custom-made liners doubles as a barrier. They ensure containment of whatever type of chemical the tanks hold.
Drop-In Liners Protect Your Employees
Much like the importance of protecting the facility from chemical seepage, the use of plating liners also protects your employees. Using liners requires less downtime and less exposure to harmful chemicals.
Drop-In Liners Sustains the Integrity of its Chemicals
Liners not only protect the environment and your employees, but they also protect the chemicals they contain. Depending on the type of chemical, the susceptibility to corrosion increases over time. Using a liner that is specifically designed to contain caustic chemicals ensures that any exposure to the tank itself is eliminated and the solution it holds is not contaminated.
Drop-In Liners Offer the Flexibility of Various Uses
There are numerous sizes of electroplating tanks. Most of them are custom-built to accommodate the scope of work for which they will be used. Because of this, having a custom-fit liner with proper material selection is key to extended usage.
Owner and industry veteran, Curtis Lang, states that when the right liner is installed, the longevity and well-being of the tank increases exponentially.
“When a customer calls looking for a drop-in liner, we ask several questions. Having a good understanding of the type of tank, its size, the solution it will hold, and the operating temperature are very important pieces of information. Once we have those specifications, we can make the best liner material recommendation.”
In addition, not only are liners customizable in material and size, but they also allow for less expensive or temporary tanks to be used.
