Description

Manual Platinum Post Treatment & Flushing Line

General Description
A manual process line installed circa 2015 which is in excellent condition.
Designed to support the application of Platinum Plating on Turbine Blades but offering the possibility of conversion to process other high value components.

The equipment is arranged in a straight line. The work is carried through the line by an overhead electric hoist with manual pendant control and 125KG SWL.

A sophisticated supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system is provided incorporating a Siemens PLC linked to a Simatic touchscreen HMI to provide the man machine interface (MMI).

This represents a good opportunity to acquire a process line in excellent condition offering considerable savings over the buy new price.

Principle of Operation
Components are manually loaded and unloaded onto jigs by an operator and masking removed. The components and masking are flushed, and trapped platinum liquors reclaimed.

Track Support Structure

The runway track is manufactured from pained steel beams supported by stanchions from the floor. Cross bracing is provided as required.

The self-supporting structure is in bolted sections lined and levelled on to the factory floor without the need for special foundations.

The complete structure is manufactured from painted steel suitable for the operating environment.

Drip Shields

Tanks have PP drip shields in between to stop solution spillage along with full length consoling at front and back to give a very attractive and functional appearance.

Fume Exhaust Systems

The extraction system includes the following major items of equipment: -

• Fume exhaust hoods
• Exhaust dampers
• Interconnecting trunking

Fumes are extracted via rear lip hoods, into a plenum chamber which runs the full length of the line and forms a rear canopy, then travelling onwards through riser ducts into a manifold running at high level at the rear of the plant.

Specification of Equipment

Item 1 - Lip Extract Ducts -

Lip extraction ducts fitted above tank flange at rear with full length canopy.
Material of Construction: - Polypropylene

Item 2 - Ductwork -
