Currently used for zinc phosphate coating on steel washers for rust inhibition and better rubber bonding/moulding. This is a high output barrel phosphating line that could be easily converted to zinc or zinc/nickel barrel plating.

Capacity originally designed at 1 barrel every 6-7 minutes. 

Fume extraction 23,600 cfm

Now dismantled for the convenience of sale. Electrical and sensitive parts dry stored.

Plant History

The plant was originally installed at a site in the North East of England by the OEM International Plating Systems (nee Varicol). It was upgraded several times during installation to meet production changes.

The current owner bought the plant to be installed and used in the automotive components industry and have a sister line in operation at their plant.

Riley Industries are in contact with the company who supported and then decommissioned the plant prior to it moving to the current owner. They are open to supporting and reinstalling the line.
